Showing poor performance, South Korea coach still believed his team "played well"

Showing poor performance, South Korea coach still believed his team

According to head coach Paulo Bento, the score did not fully reflect the performance of South Korea in the match against Brazil.

"Of course I do not like my team being defeated. Brazil is one of the best teams in the world, they are also the current champion of Copa America, so it is hard to believe that a team can defeat them at the moment.

As a result, I think my players played an impressive match against a much stronger team. The difference between them and us is the ability to take advantage of the chances. They can easily score goals from attacks, but we cannot. It is a pity score because we missed many chances", Paulo Bento commented.

However, it seems Paulo Bento ignores the fact that South Korea attackers are currently playing quite badly. The loss 0-3 against Brazil is the 3 consecutive times in which they end up a game without a goal.

Before that, they had 2 goalless draws versus North Korea and Lebanon in the FIFA World Cup Qualification. They are the teams appraised much lower than South Korea, but their players can not score any goal.

If it continues happening, South Korea will face many problems in the 2019 EAFF E-1 Football Championship held next month.

In the case of Paulo Bento, the former manager of the Portugal national football team is showing he lacks quality to boost South Korea football to a higher level. Although they easily defeat other Asian teams, they always find hard to face against stronger opponents in Europe or South America.

As a result, if the South Korea team goes on proving no positive signs in the following matches, Paulo Bento can be fired soon
