Original title: The media calls on the Football Association to find ways to arrange valuable warm-up matches for the National Football Team
Since Li Tie became the coach of the national football team, he has not led the team to a formal warm-up match, so the Football Association needs to make every effort to arrange a valuable warm-up match for the national football before the restart of the top 40 world preliminaries.
For the national team training in Shanghai, Chairman Chen Xuyuan visited the class and put forward specific requirements: "Ensure the top 40 matches and strive to enter the World Cup in Qatar." Combined with the reality of Chinese football, such requirements are not high. To achieve this goal, only requiring players is obviously not enough.
For this year’s national team, which only has training sessions and no official competitions, they also need to ask Chairman Chen Xuyuan, who is in charge of the management of the national brand name. Even if warm-up matches cannot be arranged due to epidemic prevention and control factors this year, the Football Association should do everything possible. Arrange a truly valuable warm-up match for Li Tie’s national team before the World Cup in March next year. There is no opportunity for actual combat, only behind closed doors, this brand new national football team may not be able to face the next severe test.
Obviously, this is not a problem that Chen Xuyuan and the Football Association can solve with one hand. I also hope that the General Administration of Sports and relevant prevention and control departments can provide active support.
