China is hungry for Japan’s soccer World Cup success.

Japan succeeded in advancing to the round of 16 at the World Cup in Qatar. Japan, in particular, drew attention by beating major European champions such as Germany (2-1) and Spain (2-1). In the round of 16, Japan lost to Croatia in a penalty shootout and failed to advance to the quarterfinals.

China’s ‘Global Times’ pointed out Japan’s success and China’s retreat in an article titled “What should Chinese football learn from Japan?” on the 13th. The media said, “Japan broke through the group stage as a leader by defeating Germany and Spain in the World Cup. Japan’s success was not achieved overnight, but was the result of step-by-step steps.” 토토

Then, ‘Hwangu Times’ said, “On the other hand, China has put forward a ‘soccer rise’ under the direction of President Xi Jinping, but it has only advanced to the World Cup finals once in the 2002 Korea-Japan World Cup. It is so popular that there is data that one in five people in China like soccer, but the level of the national team is not expected. China’s policy to strengthen the national team is inconsistent and wasting time.”

Meanwhile, China, which has a ‘zero corona’ policy, caused controversy by deleting scenes of spectators without masks during the World Cup relay. Upon learning of this fact, Chinese people pointed out the Chinese government’s incompetence, saying that they felt that the World Cup was a different world from China, and it became a social problem.
