On October 18, Beijing time, in the second stage relegation group of the Super League, Wuhan Zall lost to Henan Jianye 0-1 in the first round. Wuhan Zall team leader Pang Li attended the post-match press conference. He talked about the team's performance in this game and the subsequent preparations, and also explained why the striker Dong Xuesheng failed to appear.
It is a pity that I also said before the game that this system is very cruel, and the pressure on both players is very high. I am very satisfied with the performance of my players on the court. They fought to the end and Liu Yi even fought to bleed. Although we regrettably lost this game, I believe we will go back to sum up and play the following game.
Indeed, due to an accidental penalty, our defender Liao Junjian slipped and just happened to bump into the opposing player. Football is like this. There will be many accidents. We will not think too much about this game, and we will seriously summarize and prepare for the next game.
As I said before the game, this is a 180-minute game and we only played half the game. Although 0-1 behind, I believe that through a few days of adjustment and analysis of our opponents, we will welcome the next game with a brand new look and regain our advantage.
Because Dong Xuesheng had a slight injury before the game, we didn't let him start in order to protect the players. As for the long pass, because the opponent plays more directly and the opponent is a five-back, we must first ensure a good defense, and then look for opportunities to create counterattacks. In this case, the opponents are very aggressive and we have more long passes, but I believe this game has given our players confidence. After we go back, we will summarize it and make some changes in the next game, including Changes in personnel.
