Speaking with the local media on Sunday, the 59-year-old tactician said there is a big difference between the youth and national team levels, but affirmed that this is also a motivation for his players to exert greater efforts during the preparation process for the biennial tournament.

“I am very happy as the team has played well over recent times. But you should be aware that it is quite different at the national team level. I know that and have made the best possible preparations. At present, our players are in good mood with solidarity and will work together to achieve the big goal,” Park said.
