Accordingly, preparations began last August with the appointment of Coach Henry as head coach.

Tell, who is playing for Bayern Munich with Kim Min-jae, and Barcola, who is playing for Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) with Lee Kang-in, are also playing.
However, they fell 0-3 to Korea. Accordingly, coach Henry said in an interview with France’s L’Equipe after the game, “We cannot afford to concede goals like this.
The second and third goals were quite ridiculous.
We allowed the cross like that and let the ball be passed.” Analyzed the game.
“There’s something about being realistic in football.
You create a lot of chances and if you don’t capitalize on them, you give the opposition a chance to punish them.
Offensively, it wasn’t difficult to do better than against Austria, but the result now is terrible.
The last two goals “I can’t explain it,” he added.
On the contrary, for Korea, today’s victory is expected to lead to confidence in the upcoming Paris Olympics.
The U-23 national team, led by coach Hwang Seon-hong, will be able to boost their mood ahead of the 2024 AFC U-23 Asian Cup and the final Asian qualifier for the 2024 Paris Olympics to be held in Qatar in April next year.
Hwang Seon-hong played three matches in the 2024 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) U-23 Asian Cup preliminary round at the Changwon Football Center last September.
At that time, they achieved first place in their group and advanced to the finals.
A total of 16 teams will qualify for the U-23 Asian Cup finals, including the first-place team from each of the 11 preliminary groups
the top four teams from the second-place groups, and the host country, Qatar.
Although they ranked first in their group, criticism followed.
At the time, Hwang Seon-hong was criticized for a 0-2 win over Qatar, a 1-0 win over Kyrgyzstan, and a 3-0 win over Myanmar.
He showed an inability to find a solution against a team with a monotonous attack and a low line.
However, Hwang Seon-hong’s victory on this day turned the atmosphere around and raised expectations for the 2024 Paris Olympics Asian final qualifier and 2024 AFC U-23 Asian Cup to be held in Qatar in April.
