The Japan Football Association (JFA) submitted an opinion to AFC and FIFA regarding North Korea’s unmannered and violent play in the North Korea match in the men’s soccer quarterfinals of the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games.
The Japan Football Association finally pulled out its sword in the controversy related to the Japan-North Korea match in the men’s soccer quarterfinals of the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games, which took place at Xiaoshan Sports Center Stadium at 8:30 pm (Korean time) on the 1st. After the game, which Japan won 2-1, the attitude of North Korean players became a major issue. North Korean midfielder Kim Yoo-sung was drinking water from a Japanese staff member when he suddenly struck a pose, and after the game, he ran up to the referee as a group and threatened him, perhaps because he thought he had lost on a penalty kick decision.
According to the Japanese media <Dos for Web>, the Japan Football Association submitted a written opinion to AFC and FIFA today (3rd) regarding the anti-sporting behavior that occurred in the quarterfinals of the 19th Asian Games after attaching a video of the incident. “I did it,” he officially announced.
Accordingly, attention is being paid to what disciplinary procedures AFC or FIFA will take against North Korea. North Korea suddenly withdrew midway through the 2022 FIFA Qatar World Cup Asian second qualifying round due to COVID-19 and left the world of international soccer for a while, but returned through the Hangzhou Asian Games. However, as soon as I returned, there was a possibility that I would be disciplined.
Japan has no choice but to consider a match against North Korea in the 2026 FIFA World Cup United Asia 2nd qualifying round to be held in March next year. In March next year, not only a home game against North Korea, but also a trip to North Korea is scheduled. Since the safety of the athletes is a very important issue, it appears that the policy is to definitely take issue with the violent attitude of North Korean athletes that occurred in the quarterfinals of the Hangzhou Asian Games. If this happens, North Korea could be at risk of not only being disciplined at the player and association level for this incident, but also having its own World Cup qualifier home games affected.온라인바카라
