KOR vs QAT Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Two giants of Asian Football will collide in the quarterfinals of AFC Asian Cup when South Korea meet Qatar at Zayed Sports City Stadium, in Zayed Sports City, Abu Dhabi, the United Arab Emirates on Saturday evening (IST).
Before the tournament started, there is always talk about teams with the potential to go all the way and achieve the glory. South Korea were amongst those teams whose name was tossed with the other heavyweights like Australia and Japan.
Though all the big teams survived the first hurdle, i.e. the group stage and are still in the contention for the semifinals, it’s fair to say as well that none of those teams have played well enough to justify their tag.
South Korea started the campaign without their superstar Son Heung-min who was granted special permission to extend his stay with Tottenham Hotspur. He was missed dearly as the 2015 runners up struggled for fluidity in their 1-0 wins over Philippines and Kyrgyzstan in their opening two games respectively.
Tottenham superstar did make his long awaited appearance against China and he was clearly head and shoulder above all other players on the pitch. Paulo Bento and his men won the game 2-0 and topped the group with a 100% record, which was followed by another closely fought 2-1 win over Bahrain the round of 16.
It’s true that Son Heung-min is arguably Asia’s best player at the moment. But he only help his team so much in the final third, and the rest of his teammates have to improve their game and understanding to get the best out of themselves.
While few teams are struggling for consistency and are not playing at their usual high levels, Qatar remains the most improved team and perhaps the best so far based on their performance in the campaign.
Félix Sánchez Bas has done wonders with the team, infusing the belief within the squad and molding them into winners on their day. This country is going to host the FIFA World Cup in the four years time, and if Qatar punch above their weights in that showpiece event against the very best than this tournament should be looked behind as the moment when the seeds were sown for the future success.
Everyday practice and performing and competing in the big tournaments are two different things altogether That’s why a deep journey in this tournament or perhaps a title-winning campaign, which they are fully capable of achieving, may go a long way in making them the true superpower of Asian football.
About their campaign, Qatar topped their group with a 100$% record, and are yet to concede a goal in this tournament after winning the round-of-16 match 1-0 against Iraq.
