Challenge to win the Asian Cup in 63 years’, Klins Manho confirms detailed schedule… 1st match against Bahrain on January 15 next year

The schedule for the 2023 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Asian Cup, in which Klins Manho must achieve ‘the first championship in 63 years’, has been confirmed.

The AFC Asian Cup Organizing Committee announced the detailed schedule of the tournament on the 21st (Korean time), including the time of the group stage matches.

The Korean national adult soccer team, led by coach Jurgen Klinsmann, competes against Bahrain, Jordan and Malaysia in Group E of the Asian Cup group stage. 

First, on January 15 next year, South Korea will play Bahrain in the first leg of Group E at Jasim Bin Hamad Stadium. Then, on January 20th, they will face Jordan at Altumama Stadium, and on January 25th, they will meet Malaysia, led by coach Pangon Kim, at Aljanub Stadium.온라인바카라

Originally, the 2023 AFC Asian Cup was scheduled to be held in China in July. However, in the aftermath of the novel coronavirus infection (Corona 19), the venue was changed to Qatar, and the timing was also postponed to early next year. It will be held from January 12th to February 10th, 2024.

In the Asian Cup, 24 countries participated and were divided into 6 groups to play the group stage. In addition, the top 4 teams with the best grades among the 3rd place in the group also win tickets to the round of 16.

If Korea takes 1st place in Group E, their opponent in the round of 16 will be 2nd in Group D. It is one of Japan, Indonesia, Iraq and Vietnam. If they finish second in Group F, they will face off against the first place in Group F, which includes Saudi Arabia, Thailand, Kyrgyzstan, and Oman.

Klinsmanho is facing the Asian Cup with a heavy mission. We challenge to win the championship for the first time in 63 years since 1960.

The Asian Cup opening match and final will be held at the Lusail Stadium, which has a great meaning as Argentina won the 2022 World Cup in Qatar thanks to the performance of Lionel Messi (Inter Miami), the “god of soccer”. This stadium was the site of the World Cup final between Argentina and France. At that time, Argentina won their first title in 36 years after a penalty shoot-out after a 3-3 draw until overtime. Messi, who did not have the World Cup trophy in the meantime, scored multiple goals in the final and was selected as the best player.

The Asian Cup Organizing Committee planned to hold the opening and final games at Albaite Stadium in Alcor, not at Lusail Stadium, but changed the original plan as Lusail Stadium, which has a greater symbolism, was newly added to the list of Asian Cup venues.
