Kim Chang Bok hoping best from his team

North Korea manager Kim Chang Bok has said that he is hoping that his team plays an attractive brand of football when they step onto the pitch to take on Vietnam in a friendly match.

This match gives them great opportunity to put behind the disappointment of the Asian cup. North Korea had a very disappointing tournament after finishing bottom of the group without even taking a single point. Not much is expected from them ahead of the World Cup 2018 qualification campaign that will begin in a month. The team start with matches against Yemen and Uzbekistan in the space of a few days.

This is expected to hold the North Korean team in good stead going into the match.

“We have researched and know that Vietnam is recruiting teams in Southeast Asia and Korea also prepared for the match tomorrow, promises to be very attractive. I hold the Korean team is one month. I am a member of the Korea Football Association. Ingredients to Vietnam were known domestic players have good technique. We promise to play attacking team in the game tomorrow night. Before coming to Vietnam, we have studied the opponent, but do not have much information on Miura head coach,” said the North Korea manager. The World Cup qualification matches start in the second week of June against Yemen.
