In an interview with, “Korea feels comfortable without the ball. They don’t need to own the ball a lot, and they are a team that comes out quickly from the back. Korea showed that they are very good at transitioning (off-and-off) through the game against France. You have to decide whether to own the ball or what to do to avoid the wrong position when you lose the ball.
“We analyzed all of these things,” Bravo said, predicting “a tight game on the side.”
Coach Bravo, who defeated Fiji 9-0 in the third match of the group stage, said, “You have to win with ‘half a goal’ or whatever. To win, you have to play a good game, but winning with a good game happens sometimes.” ‘, he emphasized.
