“We will always try to play with this aggressiveness”, hopes Bento, the coach of South Korea

Paulo Bento (Portuguese manager of South Korea, hung 0-0 by Uruguay Thursday at the Education City stadium in Doha for their entry into the running, in a post-match press conference): “We had a good first period, better than the second. We had moments of domination, where we were able to put our game in place. Afterwards, we faltered physically, also because Uruguay have excellent players. But even there, we continued to stay well organized, united, and the players had a fabulous attitude this (Thursday) evening. One of the positive aspects is the aggressiveness. We knew they were struggling a lot, and we liked the way we responded, moving the ball with pride, without being afraid of the opponent. From now on, we will always try to play with this aggressiveness, because I think the matches will be harder and harder. (On Son?) He joined the team only in the last few days. It’s normal that he needs time to rehabilitate, he had a big injury which kept him away from the field for a long time. Maybe he couldn’t give his best this (Thursday) evening, but I hope he will be able to do so in the other matches.
