According to the warm-up and other realities to confirm the players who will go to West Asia with the team.
Zhang Linpeng has recovered
After two days of rest, the Chinese team conducted the first outdoor training after arriving in Shanghai on the afternoon of October 30th at Houpier Base. As with the previous preparations in Suzhou, the team’s training was completely closed to the outside world, which created ideal conditions for the coaching staff to fully rehearse the team’s lineup and formation for the two games in November.
Defender Zhang Linpeng, who strained his left thigh muscle in the final stage of the 12-final match, has now recovered and participated in the joint exercise on October 30. The 31 players currently on the team are generally in good physical condition. If the team confirms that they must go overseas again, then head coach Li Tie will be able to select a relatively neat lineup from them.
The warm-up match will be scheduled on November 3
According to the plan, the Chinese team will participate in the teaching competition on November 3. Affected by the epidemic, the Chinese team encountered greater difficulties in implementing the warm-up plan. If the team leaves Shanghai on November 6 for Sharjah, UAE, it will not be able to warm up with other foreign teams after arriving at the venue. In this case, warming up with the domestic club team has become the last resort of the national football team.
It is reported that before the transfer of the National Football Team from Suzhou to Shanghai, the team has contacted a number of clubs participating in the FA Cup knockout rounds, including the Chinese Super League Shanghai Shenhua, Shenzhen and the Chinese Premier Zhejiang 3 clubs. In the FA Cup quarter-finals, Shenzhen Football Team was eliminated by Shenhua, so Shenzhen team became one of the warm-up opponents of the National Football Team, and the other warm-up opponent was Zhejiang team.
The warm-up match between the national football team and the Shenzhen team and the Zhejiang team will be scheduled on the afternoon of November 3. This is because there are more players participating in the preparation for the national football team. According to the plan, the National Football Team will warm up with the Shenzhen Football Team and Zhejiang Team. The first game will start at 3:30 in the afternoon. The two games will only have a break of more than 10 minutes.
5 international players may return to the club
It is understood that although the nature of the two games is a warm-up, in order to help the national football team quickly adjust the competitive state, the coaching staff specifically requested the whole team to participate in the two games in accordance with the regular international competition rules. The Chinese Football Association, in cooperation with the National Football Association, specially arranged through the Shanghai Football Association the international referee Shen Yinhao and the national elite referee Chen Gang as the referees of the two games.
Through these two games, the national football coach Li Tie will further polish the team’s main lineup for the two games in November, and at the same time use the warm-up opportunity to subtract some “excess personnel” lineups. Not surprisingly, at least 5 internationals have temporarily left the national team and returned to the club after the end of the Shanghai training camp.
After the 4 rounds of the top 12, 9 nationals including Dong Chunyu, Wang Dalei, Liu Dianzuo, Wang Shangyuan, Li Lei, Xu Xin, Wang Qiuming, Button and Guo Tianyu failed to make their debut. Among these nine people, except for Li Lei who once served as the team’s main left back in the first half of the top 40 game, the other eight are currently the team’s “iron substitutes” and have even been excluded from the competition registration lineup many times. Therefore, most of the players who are “subtracted” will be generated from these players. Of course, their abilities and attitudes have always been affirmed by the coaching staff, and they are still expected to return to the team in subsequent games.
