Saudi Head Coach in the Round of 16 “Korea will be a good team, a difficult game.”

Saudi Arabia’s head coach, who met “Clinsman Lake” in the round of 16 at the 2023 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Asian Cup, predicted that it would not be an easy game.

Saudi Arabia drew 0-0 with Thailand in the third Group F match of the tournament at Education City Stadium in Alayyan, Qatar, on the 26th (Korea time).

As a result, Saudi Arabia will compete with South Korea, which ranked second in Group E, to advance to the quarterfinals. The two teams will face off at 1 a.m. on the 31st at Education City Stadium.

Saudi Arabia, led by Italian coach Roberto Mancini, has faced a difficult enemy called Korea from the first round of the tournament.

Currently, Korea ranks 23rd and Saudi Arabia ranks 56th in the FIFA rankings. In total, the two teams meet 18 times and are neck and neck with five wins, eight draws and five losses.

The most recent showdown was an exhibition match held in Newcastle, the U.K., in September last year, in which Korea won 1-0 thanks to Cho Kyu-sung (Mit Whelan)’s winning goal. Coach Klinsmann, who had no win (three draws and two losses) in five consecutive matches since taking office, secured his first win through the match.

Mancini, who led Italy to win the Euro 2020 (European Football Championship), predicted that the match against Korea would be a difficult game.

Pointing out that many Korean players, including Son Heung-min (Tottenham) and Kim Min-jae (Bayern Munich), are in the best leagues in Europe, he said, “[Korea] is a very good team.”

“We know that the match against Korea will be a very difficult game,” Mancini said, adding, “It will not only be for us, but also for them.”

Mancini, however, also expressed confidence in his team’s victory over the Korean team. “Anything can happen,” Mancini said, expressing faith in his players.

The winner of the match between Korea and Saudi Arabia is highly likely to meet Australia in the quarterfinals. If the team advances to the final, it will likely face off against other contenders, including Japan, Iran and Qatar.

“To win this tournament, we have to compete with the best teams,” Mancini said, encouraging, “We have to fight Japan, Korea and Australia to win in the end.”
