“It will be difficult for you to score the winning goal in extra time, unless we score goals from set pieces or counter attacks. "I think we players carried out the plan very well until the end, even though there were some difficult situations," he added.

It was recorded that there were three South Korean U23 overseas players who were not given their club's permission to join the national team. They are Yang Hyun-jun (Celtic FC), Bae Jun-ho (Stoke City), and Kim Ji-soo (Brentford).

“It's true that the loss of European-based players makes things difficult for us. "We use various channels to get these clubs to agree to send their players to us," he explained again.

"But before the tournament, we couldn't bring them here for several reasons," he concluded.
