In fact, with the further advancement of Li Tie's national team, the difficulty of the national football's position in the midfielder became more and more obvious: if Fernando's selection has enhanced the national football's forward strength, Jiang Guangtai's selection has increased the thickness of the national football's defense line, then, Who can enhance the midfielder of the national football team, especially the midfielder? I'm afraid Li Tie also has a headache.
The original national team's main midfielder, and the previous national team's dual core of spirit and tactics, Zheng Zhi has completely bid farewell to the national team. He was promoted to Evergrande assistant coach this season and he was not selected for this national team. Zheng Zhi still played in the 2019 Asian Cup as the main force at the age of 39. It is not difficult to see the embarrassment of the talent pool of the National Football Team in this position.
After Zheng Zhi, Hao Junmin, who is considered to be the leader of the national football, is suffering from injuries and negative effects on his physical condition in the 2020 season: in the first stage of this season, Hao Junmin played 9 times, but all played. The time is only 472 minutes. In fact, Luneng finally ranked third in Group A. One of the main reasons for the technical and tactical level is the injury of the back waist, especially the injury of Hao Junmin. During Luneng’s four consecutive victories, he defeated Evergrande and Jianye. Hao Junmin played the whole game, but Hao Junmin’s subsequent appearances were restricted. From the 10th to the 13th round, he did not play due to injury. He did not play for 11 minutes until the final round. Luneng also played Tied for the top spot, but eventually slipped to third place.
Among the domestic defensive midfielders, Hao Junmin is a rare player with strong defensive ability and excellent technology. His greater feature is that he has strong individual combat ability in the process of shifting from defense to offense, and he can achieve escape, breakthrough and rush. One-stop operation. On the contrary, even if Fellaini is playing midfielder, Fellaini is also biased towards system players, who need more cooperation with his teammates to achieve progress.
But the reality is cruel. Hao Junmin, 33 and about 34, may not be able to support the national football team for too long. In particular, both of Hao Junmin's knees have undergone major repairs.
In addition to Hao Junmin, the current midfielder that the national team can rely on is Wu Xi, but Wu Xi’s ability to control the rhythm of the team is still a little less popular. His greater role and advantage is to insert the offense. B2B type midfielder. As for Chi Zhongguo is a partial engineer-type player, Li Ke's ability is also good, but the core role is not mentioned. The National Football Team's training camp for the top 40 match in March, Li Ke was not selected for the national team at that time.
In fact, not only the defensive midfielder, but also the front midfielder position is very embarrassing. Zhang Xizhe was not selected due to injury this time. With Zhang Xizhe’s absence, there is no pure midfielder in the entire national team list. Of course, the national football team At present, the 442 formation is the main line, and the original midfielder is not set up. However, if there is no midfielder and the organizational ability of the midfielder is also declining, the national football forward will be embarrassed. After all, no matter how many naturalized offensive players, an effective offensive organization is needed.
A more accurate description is: Compared with the national football team that participated in the last 12 matches and the 2019 Asian Cup, the midfield strength of the new national football team has shown a very serious decline. For Li Tie, controlling the midfielder is already an impossible task. , Purely defensive counterattack may be a more realistic choice.
Of course, there are other options in the future. For example, Wang Qiuming who has some characteristics like Hao Junmin at present, such as Duan Liuyu and Yan Dinghao who have shown talents, but they are still quite far away from assuming the role of the national football team, and the real development height of the future is not possible. Accurate assessment.
This current situation makes people think of Goulart, who has been naturalized but has not been qualified to represent the national football team. He can help the national football midfielder improve his organizational ability, and it makes people think of trying to naturalize but not getting permission. Ivo, he may even upgrade the national football midfielder.
All of this, at this stage, is just Wangmei quenching thirst.
