Even if it was an accident, there should have been an apology for being late in the A match.

The Korean national soccer team, led by coach Jurgen Klinsmann, drew 2-2 with Colombia in the ‘Hana Bank Invitational National Football Team Friendly Match’ held at Ulsan Munsu World Cup Stadium at 8:00 pm on the 24th.

The game opened normally at 8:21 instead of 8:00 PM. The reason is that the Colombian team was late. Colombia, which did not arrive on time at the pre-press conference held on the 23rd, was also late on the day of the game. Even if there are times when it is difficult to enter the bus due to natural disasters or difficulty controlling the stadium due to fan protests, simple tardiness is not easily found in A-match.

Even though it is a friendly match, A match is a match between countries. It is true that there must be respect between countries. Even so, Colombia was late. When they did not arrive, the officials continued to communicate and check the situation, and the Colombian team, who came late, warmed up, but the referee returned to the locker room and trained regardless of the whistle to prepare for the game.

Under the direction of officials, the Colombian players belatedly entered the locker room and prepared for the game. Due to the large number of spectators, the Internet connection was not working, so the fans had no idea what was going on. Just before 8:00 PM, the announcer on the field said, “The kickoff time was delayed because the Colombian players were late.”

I thought there would be an apology in some way at the press conference after the game. However, coach Nestro Lawrence said, “I went to the stadium for training yesterday, and it took about 30 to 40 minutes. Today, it took about 1 hour and 30 to 40 minutes because the traffic was blocked. I think it was an accident. It was unexpected. I was in a situation where I couldn’t ride anything else.” Whatever the reason, an apology came first, but it didn’t.

It was bound to be judged as an act of lack of respect.먹튀검증 It is natural that the surrounding traffic situation is congested and it takes more time on the days when the game is not held and on the day when it is held. Even if you didn’t know the traffic congestion in Korea because you were in a foreign country, it is interpreted as a lack of preparation for getting on the bus with the same travel time as the previous day. Seeing as there was no apology, Colombia seems to be trying to hit it with the words “It was just an accident!”

It was clearly an act of ill manners. On the other hand, director Klinsman said, “Colombia’s lateness? It wasn’t very surprising and had no effect. They just asked us to do well with what we prepared,” showing a large crowd.
