Japan Technical Committee Chairman, “March A match opponent undecided. Korea? A worthy opponent to think about”

Yasuharu Sorimachi, technical director of the Japan Football Association (JFA), draws attention by saying that Korea is also attractive against an A-match in March.

The Japan Football Association, which recently signed a new contract with Japan national soccer team coach Hajime Moriyasu, is struggling to pick an opponent for an A-match in March. As before and after the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, teams belonging to UEFA cannot meet at the A match break because they have their own schedule. It is highly likely to be an A-match against a South American or Asian country. 메이저사이트

In the midst of this, Sorimachi Technical Committee drew attention by mentioning the opponent for the A match in March. According to Japanese media <Daily Sports>, Sorimachi Technical Committee held an online interview with Japanese media. When asked about the opponent for the March A match, Sorimachi Technical Committee said, “It has not been decided yet. If possible, we are grateful to a team with a higher FIFA ranking than us and a country that is a regular player in the World Cup finals.”

Like Japan, he also affirmed the question of the possibility of facing Korea, which advanced to the round of 16 in the World Cup in Qatar. Sorimachi, head of technical committee, said, “Korea is also a strong player who reached the round of 16 at the World Cup in Qatar. It is worth thinking about.”

Meanwhile, Japan will play two matches in March at Tokyo National Stadium on March 24 and at Yodoko Sakura Stadium in Osaka on March 28. Is it possible to compete with Korea? If it happens, it will be the first Korea-Japan match since the EAFF (East Asian Football Federation) E-1 Football Championship 0-3 defeat on July 27, 2022 in Korea.
