Messi’s coronation ceremony, ‘Son Heung-min’s last coronation’ may be held… Asian Cup final 88,000 confirmed Lusail

Messi’s coronation ceremony, ‘Son Heung-min’s last coronation’ may be held… Asian Cup final 88,000 confirmed Lusail

The 2023 Qatar Asian Cup final will also be held at the 2022 Qatar World Cup Final Stadium.

The Asian Football Confederation (AFC) announced the detailed schedule and venue for the 2023 AFC Qatar Asian Cup on the 21st. The most anticipated Asian Cup final has been confirmed at the Lusail Stadium. Lusail Stadium is a super-large soccer stadium newly built in time for the opening of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. It can accommodate 88,000 people and is located in Lusail, a new city near Doha, the capital of Qatar.

AFC said, “The Lusail Stadium is the third largest venue among Asian Cup finals venues. It is next in size to Azadi Stadium in Tehran, Iran, where the 1976 Asian Cup final was held (100,000 people), and Gelora Bung Karno Stadium in Jakarta, Indonesia (88,083 people), where the 2007 Asian Cup final was held.”

Above all, it is the place where people around the world focused on the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. The final match between Argentina and France was held at Lusail Stadium. Argentina’s Angel Di Maria scored one goal and captain Lionel Messi scored two goals, while France’s Kylian Mbappe scored three goals alone to create a movie-like story. It is considered one of the greatest World Cup finals of all time.

As a result of the penalty shootout, Argentina won. Argentina won the World Cup for the first time in 36 years, and Messi became the World Cup champion for the first time in his life. Messi, who had previously won all competitions except the World Cup, successfully completed the final puzzle. Messi’s feeling that “there is no more time left” tells everything.

Messi lifted the World Cup trophy while wearing traditional Qatari clothing. The expression ‘Coronation’ was attached to this scene. It means the rise of a new soccer emperor. Argentine players and fans stayed at the stadium for a long time after the award ceremony to enjoy the festival.

For reference, the Argentina national team played 5 out of 7 matches at the Qatar World Cup at the Lusail Stadium. Group stage against Saudi Arabia (0-1 loss), Mexico (2-0 win), Quarterfinal against Netherlands (2-2 draw), Semifinal against Croatia (3-0 win), Final against France (3-3) ) was held here.

About a year after that, in January-February 2024, the Qatar Asian Cup kicks off. The final will be held at Lusail Stadium on February 10 next year. If the Korean national soccer team reaches the final of the Asian Cup, the history of the Asian coronation ceremony can be written at the Lusail Stadium. If they win, captain Son Heung-min will hold the championship cup and hold a ceremony.먹튀검증

Korean football had no ties to the Asian Cup. After winning two consecutive Asian Cups in 1956 and 1960, they failed to win the championship for 63 years. In 2015, under coach Uli Stielike, they advanced to the final of the Asian Cup in Australia and faced host country Australia. Heung-Min Son scored a dramatic equalizer in extra time in the second half to take the game into overtime. Korea lost 1-2 and stayed in the runner-up. (The Australian coach who made Korea cry at this time is Anje Postecoglu, who is currently leading Tottenham.)

This Asian Cup is highly likely to be captain Son Heung-min’s fourth and last Asian Cup. Son Heung-min said at a press conference for the national team in March, “There is less than a year left. The Asian Cup is a competition that Korea has challenged to win for a long time. I also went to the finals of the Asian Cup, went to the semifinals, and fell in the quarterfinals. Winning the Asian Cup is my biggest dream.”

Korea, led by coach Jurgen Klinsmann, was placed in Group E in the draw for the Asian Cup group stage. Bahrain, Jordan, and Malaysia in turn. The match against Bahrain will be held on January 15 at Jasim Bin Hamad Stadium, the match against Jordan will be held at Al Thumama Stadium on January 20, and the match against Malaysia will be held at Al Janoub Stadium on January 25. All three venues were Qatar World Cup venues.

If Korea advances to the round of 16 as first place in Group E, it will face second place in Group D at Al Thumama Stadium. Group D includes Japan, Indonesia, Iraq and Vietnam. If they win here, they will play in the quarterfinals at Education City Stadium. Education City Stadium is where Korea played three group matches of the Qatar World Cup.

I hope that the Qatar World Cup round of 16 energy will lead to a challenge to win the Qatar Asian Cup.
