Malaysia was wary of South Korea and Son Heung-min.
The Asian Football Confederation (AFC) held the 2023 Asian Cup group draw in Doha, Qatar on the 11th (Korean time).
Korea was drawn into Group E, and faced off against Jordan, Bahrain and Malaysia.
The match between Korea and Malaysia is expected to draw attention. A head-to-head match with manager Kim Pan-gon is also a concern.
Director Jurgen Klinsmann also did not hide his anticipation, saying, “There is a Korean coach in Malaysia, and it will be a special match.”
Coach Kim Pan-gon said, “I hope that the match against the strongest team in Asia will motivate the players. It is an honor to meet Korea.”
Malaysian local media expressed their anticipation for the confrontation with South Korea, but also showed their caution.
Malaysian media ‘bharian’ said, “Malaysia was drawn in Group E with Asian giants Korea. It is a team that has become the Asian champion twice,” he said, “Son Heung-min is waiting for us.”토토사이트
