Mexico will face Korea for a ticket to the Olympic semifinals and Jaime Lozano highlighted the qualities of the Asian team
Jaime lozano, coach of the Mexican Olympic Team, explained that Korea will be a stronger rival than Japan, its rival in the group stage, and mentioned that the Tricolor attack will be its main weapon in the quarterfinals of Tokyo 2020.
“Korea is a very intense team, possibly more intense and stronger than Japan, I think Japan can have a little more of that set game. Korea reaches the area well, they have beaten the last two games and have two forwards who are their reinforcements, I had to see a summary of the game they lose with New Zealand and if it is because of scoring chances, they must have scored. You have to defend yourself, you have to attack them, because they are our strength, ”said Jaime Lozano, coach of the Mexican Olympic National Team, at the press conference after the 3-0 victory over South Africa.
The Tricolor coach acknowledged that he has seen few South Korean matches, a team that scored 10 goals in the group stage and only received one.
“We have analyzed them little (South Korea) the truth, we saw them against France in preparation, Korea is a more intense team, perhaps more intense than JapanThey are direct, frontal, they want to take advantage of their speed, they come from thrashing two games, they are generating many options ”, repeated Jimmy Lozano.
Regrets the expulsion of Charly Rodríguez
Jaime Lozano regretted the expulsion of Carlos Rodríguez, who will miss the quarter-final match against South Korea, by committing a foul against South Africa, when Mexico was already scoring 3-0.
“Charly’s issue is a shame, because in a 3-0 if you let him pass and they score a goal it doesn’t matter, but you’re in the game and you don’t want to receive a goal. It’s a red card that hurts us”, He acknowledged.
