Although it is a competition, the atmosphere is like a trip to the Middle East Bahrain fans are coming in large numbers

Son Heung-min, a member of the Korean national soccer team participating in the 2023 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Qatar Asian Cup, is training at the Al Egla Training Center in Doha, Qatar, on the 14th (local time).

Korea, playing in the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Asian Cup for the first time in 64 years, is expected to play in an away team atmosphere from the first game.

The Korean national soccer team, led by coach Jurgen Klinsmann, will play the first leg of the 2023 AFC Asian Cup Group E against Bahrain at Jassim bin Hamad Stadium in Doha, Qatar at 8:30 pm on the 15th (Korean time).

Korea’s FIFA ranking is 23rd and Bahrain is 86th. In terms of objective power, Korea is ahead.

Bahrain coach Juan Antonio Fitch also said, “Our first opponent, Korea, has a lot of good players. “Korea is clearly a strong team and has been showing good performance recently,” he said, praising Korea highly.

However, since it is the first game of the competition, you must abandon complacency and exercise high concentration. Also, the ‘Bahrain crowd’ is not a good background for us.

Bahrain is geographically close to Qatar. It is only 5 hours by car or 1 hour by plane. It is a distance worth traveling to watch the Asian Cup.

About 10,000 fans from the United Arab Emirates (UAE), which is geographically close to Qatar like Bahrain, came to support their country in the first match against Hong Kong on the 14th.

Bahrain reporters who visited Doha, where the tournament is being held, said, “Expectations for the Asian Cup are high in Bahrain. “In particular, there is a lot of interest in the match against Korea against Son Heung-min (Tottenham).”

The Bahrain government is also encouraging fans to support the away team. According to Bahraini media News of Bahrain, under the instructions of His Highness Sheikh Khalid bin Hamad Al Khalifa, the Bahrain Olympic Committee (BOC) is purchasing tickets for Bahrain’s Asian Cup matches and providing them to fans.

In particular, Jassim Bin Hamad Stadium, where Korea and Bahrain are playing, is a small stadium with a seating capacity of about 15,000. Korea is likely to face Bahrain, backed by the one-sided support of its fans. This is already the first game of a difficult competition, but there is one more thing to pay attention to. 19가이드03
