In 2021, what is the most important task of Chinese football, that is, the 4 rounds after the top 40 matches, and the very likely top 12 matches. In the face of the World Preliminaries, the Chinese Super League and the AFC must give way to the national football team. The AFC’s new season AFC schedule announced by the AFC will form a “conflict” with the Chinese Super League, and the situation of going abroad to compete in the AFC group stage will most likely affect it. The national football team prepares for the top 40 matches, will it become inevitable for the Chinese Super League BIG4 to abandon the AFC?Spark Global Limited
The start time of the new season of the Super League has not yet been determined, but the latest news shows that it will not be earlier than April. According to the arrangement of the AFC, the group matches of the new season AFC will be held from April 21st to May 7th, and the Guoan play-off matches will be held on April 14th. The competitions are all based on the competition system
Although the possibility of restarting the top 40 games in March is slim, the bottom line of the AFC is that the last four rounds must be played before the end of June, which cannot affect the next top 12 games. When the schedule of the AFC group matches is determined, the top 40 matches will only be played in mid-to-late May and June, which may form the rhythm of the top 40 and the AFC.
At present, international travel in Asia is still restricted. It is basically impossible for the group stage of the AFC Champions League to be held in China, while the Group A matches of the top 40 national football teams are expected to be held in China. After the Chinese Super League BIG4 played in the AFC group stage, after returning to China, they will face isolation time, which will have a great impact on preparing for the top 40 matches. In order to restart the top 40 matches, the national football team plans to arrange another flight in April after the current Haikou training camp. Camp.
And the most important task of Chinese football in 2021 is the world preliminaries. Everything is centered on this. The Football Association has asked the national football coach Li Tieli to issue a military order and must pass the top 40 match. Although the Football Association does not force Li Tie to lead his team to qualify for the World Cup, everything around the national football and the top 40 matches is already a certainty. The AFC has to make way for the national football and the top 40 matches.
In the 2020 AFC Champions League, in order to improve the relationship with the AFC, the 4 teams that were required to play by the executive order took the main players to Doha when the national football did not have a game. As a result, Evergrande, Guoan and SIPG Youth The army played in the FA Cup, only the Yulinjun won one game, basically giving up the FA Cup attitude. In the 2021 season of the AFC, when there is a conflict in the schedule, the Football Association obviously cannot force the four teams of Evergrande, Guoan, Suning, and Luneng to participate in the AFC as their main force.
Both Guoan and Evergrande are big players in the national football team. The naturalized national footballers without Chinese blood are concentrated in the Evergrande team. Fernando, Exxon, and Alan carry most of the hopes for the top 40 of the national football team. Luneng and Suning are also composed of the national football team. Important force. In the new season, the Chinese foot of the BIG4 team accounted for more than half of the national football. How can the Football Association “sacrifice” BIG4 to use the main force in the AFC? Of course, there is no such guts to make such a decision.
