Shin gets nod as Korea coach

Shin gets nod as Korea coach”

On Tuesday, the Korean Football Association appointed Shin Tae-yong as head coach on a contract that expires until after the 2018 World Cup.

Stielike took the Koreans to the final of the 2015 Asian Cup just four months into the job, but has been unable to get the team back to that standard and was sacked after a 3-2 defeat to Qatar in mid-June.

Shin took the helm of South Korea's U20 team last November after a series of defeats, and steered them to the quarterfinals of this year's U20 World Cup on home soil. A former midfielder, Shin made 23 appearances for South Korea from 1992 to 1997.

'Although the team is in a hard situation, I believe that Shin Tae-yong will be able to demonstrate his abilities, ' said Kim Ho-gon.

"Having served in the national teams before, he knows the current team members very well and has excellent communication skills", Kim said.

The association convened a meeting of its technical committee in Paju and chose to have Shin fill the top coach post which was left vacant after the association dismissed the previous national team coach, Uli Stielike, for Team Korea's poor performance in the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.

There will be no easy settling-in period for Shin, whose first match comes against group leaders Iran, who have already qualified, before a potentially crunch clash away at Uzbekistan.

Shin will lead the team through the 2018 World Cup if they qualify, Kim added.
