Speech outside the body coach Qatar

History of winning the Asia Cup in the Sanchez press conference
“Records are just records, we will make our own evaluation”

2022 World Cup host Qatar lost 0-2 to the Netherlands in the 3rd Group A match held at the Albaite Stadium in Alcor on the 30th (Korea time), finishing the tournament with 0 wins, 0 a draw and 3 losses. This is the first time in the history of the 1992 World Cup that the host country has failed to win a single point.

Qatar invested 220 billion dollars (about 294 trillion won) in preparation for the first Winter World Cup to be held in the Middle East. However, the Qatar coach, who finished the tournament with poor results, said he would start preparations for the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Asian Cup straight away with the ‘out of body’ speech.

In the official press conference held after the match with the Netherlands, coach Felix Sanchez (47, Spain) said, “We have never aimed to advance to the round of 16 or the quarter-finals.” he said. He added, “We played well against Senegal and the Netherlands, but we couldn’t show our skills in the opening game against Ecuador.”

When critical questions were raised about the outrageous records set by Qatar in this tournament, coach Sanchez said, “Records are just records. We will carry out our own evaluation.”

At the same time, coach Sanchez spoke about his biggest achievement, Qatar’s victory in the 2019 Asian Cup. He said, “We are a team that has won the title of the Asian Cup,” and “we experienced only good moments and difficult moments in The World Cup.” “I don’t have time to rest,” he added, adding, “I will prepare for the next Asian Cup.” Qatar won the 2019 Asian Cup by defeating South Korea in the quarter-finals, the United Arab Emirates in the semi-finals, and Japan in the final, with a number of natural players leading the way. Qatar will also host the 2023 Asian Cup.

On the other hand, when asked about his future, who has led the Qatar national team since 2017, he replied, “I have never thought about my future and I am not sure what will happen.”
