New Express News Reported by reporter Gao Jing Currently, the Chinese men's football team is conducting training camps in Shanghai under the leadership of coach Li Tie. Yesterday the team’s goalkeeper Zeng Cheng was interviewed by the media. In Zeng Cheng’s view, this national football team has a lot of sense of ceremony, and the fierce competition within the team will promote the team to improve faster.
As the former meritorious goalkeeper of Guangzhou Evergrande, Zeng Cheng made great achievements for the team. After transferring to Shanghai Shenhua at the beginning of this year, Zeng Cheng represented Shenhua in 12 league games this season, averaging 2.8 saves per game-this data is not much different from when he played for Evergrande before. Zeng Cheng contributed to Shanghai Shenhua's smooth entry into the league championship group.
This year Zeng Cheng is 33 years old. For the goalkeeper, this age is the golden age of both stability and experience. Zeng Cheng has indeed maintained a good competitive state. The call for the national team this time was also expected by the outside world.
You know, the last time Zeng Cheng appeared in the national team was the Asian Cup in early 2019. Previously, as the main goalkeeper of the national football team, he has played in the top 12 matches of the national football team's impact on the Russian World Cup. At that time, his stable performance in front of the goal is obvious to all. However, in the national football away game against Syria, the Chinese team led the opponent by one goal at the last moment, but the Syrian team used a direct free kick to equalize the score. That goal lost the national football team's precious 2 points. In the defense of that ball, Zeng Cheng's choice of the wall arrangement caused controversy in the outside world, and the loss of the ball was somewhat regrettable.
Now that things have passed, the national football team has started again and once again launched an impact on the World Cup. Zeng Cheng also ushered in a new opportunity.
"I have always been able to represent the national team in my football career and follow the national team to complete the World Cup dream as my original intention. Every time I come to the national team, it is a great honor and very proud thing." Zeng Cheng said.
In Zeng Cheng's view, this training session of the National Football Team is very ceremonial. Everyone has a souvenir with their name printed. At the same time, the training also provides players with ample opportunities for communication. The original intention of running-in, thus showing the coach's technical and tactical thinking.
In this national football training camp, four goalkeepers Zeng Cheng, Yan Junling, Liu Dianzuo and Dong Chunyu were recruited. The competition within the team is also very fierce. "There are many outstanding players in the position of domestic goalkeepers. Everyone has improved through mutual promotion and competition. There are many young goalkeeper positions. They should be given more opportunities to grow as soon as possible." Zeng Cheng said, "I I feel that it is not only the goalkeeper, but a good competitive environment and atmosphere in every position of the national team, so that while promoting the improvement of everyone, the whole team will become better."
