On October 4th, with the last arrival of striker Dong Xuesheng from Wuhan Zall, the 28 international players (among them Wu Xinghan replacing the injured Liu Yun) who participated in the new session of the National Men’s Football Team in Shanghai arrived at the team within the specified time. The National Football Team then rushed to the Houpier Base in the afternoon to participate in the first outdoor training session of this training session.
Head coach Li Tie was interviewed by the media before the start of training. Li Tie said, "This time all the selected players are 100% and determined to participate in the training camp. They are all very happy to participate."
Before the training started, the head coach Li Tie explained to the media the reasons for organizing this training session.
Li Tie said straightforwardly, "We have 6 days of training in this period, which is a very important 6 days. Our last training was held in May this year. The world preliminaries (the second half of the top 40) were postponed to March next year. It will take place in June, and we are currently unable to determine whether a short-term training camp can be arranged in January next year. So using this 6-day training session, we will pass on some information to the players. In this training session, we also selected a group in the league. There are very outstanding players, including some newcomers. We want to let these players go to the national team and other players to be more familiar with each other and get a better fit. Therefore, the training schedule for this period is very tight."
The initial stage of this training camp coincides with the National Day holiday. Although the international footballers have just gone through the long and closed first stage of the Super League competition, for the common pursuit and dreams, they only reunited with their families for less than a week and embarked on a new journey in a hurry. It is understood that among the 28 players, the full-back Jin Jingdao from Luneng came to the team first. Due to flight reasons, Jin Jingdao arrived in Shanghai on the evening of the 3rd to avoid being late.
In an interview with the media, Li Tie answered the reasons for organizing this training session, while repeatedly emphasizing his attitude and responsibility. Although the candidates for the current national football training lineup have caused some controversy inside and outside the football field, in Li Tie's view, building an "iron army" capable of fighting well and aiming to hit the World Cup requires a group of determined players.
Li Tie is very pleased that the international players are actively participating in the national team training. He took the opportunity to reveal a small phenomenon to the media reporters, that is, in the previous sessions of recruiting players for training, he often encountered at least two or three players expressing "Is it possible not to go" on the grounds of "small injuries" etc. ( National team training)”, but this type of situation no longer exists in the current recruitment of players. He said, "This time all the selected players are 100% and determined to participate in the training camp. They are all very happy to participate in the national team training." Li Tie emphasized the concept of "attitude, responsibility, honor" and their mutual relations. Logical connection. This indicates that even if players have outstanding abilities, if they do not have a sense of responsibility to serve the country with loyalty, it will be difficult for the national team under Li Tie to find a place. This is reminiscent of what Li Tie said when he took office as the head coach of the National Football Team, "Attitude is everything. You don't choose a national football team based on your seniority and reputation. Only hard work and team spirit come first!
Li Tie also explained the recruitment of some veterans and newcomers in this training session.
A reporter asked Li Tie about the selection of three U23 players, Tong Lei, Guo Tianyu, and Zhang Yuning. He replied, “Zhang Yuning was a national team player before. He was not selected because of injuries. He has a very good reputation in the league. Performance. This year is Tong Lei’s first year in the Super League, and his performance is equally good. For young players like him, being selected for the national team is more of an incentive. We also hope that through such a training camp, we can help them grow. Encourage more young people to forge ahead."
Regarding the return of veteran Zeng Cheng, Li Tie explained, “(Zeng Cheng) doesn’t need me to say any more. His past so many years of experience represent everything. He is one of China’s best goalkeepers. He has just defeated injuries and is very Not easy. For me, he has always been a member of the national team."
Li Tie revealed that, except for the 4th in the current national football training camp, all the rest are scheduled in the morning. He also emphasized that while arranging compact training content, the national team will do its best to protect the players' bodies to ensure that they can participate in the second stage of the Super League.
The 28 players selected for this national football team, including Fernando and Jiang Guangtai, two naturalized (naturalized) players, all meet this standard. Li Tie said, “In fact, these two newcomers to the team have a very good performance in the league first, and I have communicated with them before. Both of them have a strong desire to play for the Chinese team.”
In addition, Li Tie also answered the question of "whether there is a limit on the scale of national football naturalized players". He said, “I have never heard of any restrictions, 3, 4, 5? For me, there are two criteria for recruiting naturalized players. The first is to be qualified to represent the Chinese team; the second is also very The important point is that they are willing to represent the national team."
