This afternoon, the team coach Van Bronckhorst attended the pre-match press conference for the second round against Qingdao Huanghai Qinggang.
Fan Shuai said of the team’s preparations: “We have 4 days to prepare for the second round. During this time, we adjusted and recovered well and summarized the first round of the game. We know about tomorrow’s game. Quite critical, so I ask all players to devote themselves to this game. This afternoon we will have the last practice before the game. The opponent did a good job on the defensive end in the last game, and it is difficult for us to create opportunities on the offensive end. Come. I believe that the opponent will still stick to this way of playing. I hope that the team can do better on the offensive end tomorrow and create more opportunities. Of course, the defensive end should also do well. We know that tomorrow’s game will be tough, but I have confidence in everyone on the team and believe that if we do our best, we will achieve good results."
The relegation group has completed two games so far. Fan Shuai was asked about his inspiration from the two successful relegation teams. He said: "We know that after the first stage of the game, every team has a chance to play. Successful relegation in the two rounds of matches. Through the first two matches, we saw that the two teams after returning to the hotel will have two different emotions. The winning team is very happy, and the losing team will be relatively lost. . That is football. All we can do is to do our best on the pitch and fight until the final whistle. The last game was very stale, and both sides are evenly matched in strength. Of course we will communicate with other player coaches in the hotel. Yesterday I talked with Benitez and he was of course very happy. Shijiazhuang Yongchang coach Guterbi is not happy. So we have to work hard to return to the hotel with a happy mood."
When talking about whether to prepare for overtime or penalty kicks, Fan Shuai said: "Even if we kick overtime, we will not change much. So we have to prepare the players psychologically. Reina Both Dinho and Li Titian are able to participate in the team's joint training all the way, and both of them can play, so this is good news. Today we have a training and pre-match technical and tactical meeting, and we will do well Prepared for tomorrow’s game."
