Han Qiaosheng:Not optimistic about qualifying for the National Football World Championships
For the Chinese National Football, the past 2020 is a year with a lot of stories. Although due to the epidemic, the national football world preliminaries have been delayed again and again, the domestic league has been successfully launched from the shadow of the epidemic, and the introduction of a number of reform measures is also committed to changing the Chinese football environment.

At the beginning of 2021, Han Qiaosheng, an old friend of Chinese football, the famous mouthpiece, accepted an exclusive interview with a reporter from Chinanews.com and talked about Chinese football in his eyes.
“The level of our national team lies there”
For the national football team, the most important international competition in the past two years is the Qatar World Cup Asian Qualifier. The current world preliminaries are in the top 40 stage, and the national football team ranked second in the group with 4 matches, 2 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss in Group A.
In November 2019, the head coach Lippi of the National Football Team’s loss to Syria. Subsequently, Li Tie became the new coach of the national football team. However, due to the impact of the epidemic, currently Li Tie has not led the team to participate in the top 40 matches.
Fans often have mixed feelings about the national football. I said that I didn’t watch it, it was too bad, it was out of play, and I was always expecting in secret:What if it can create a miracle?
But Han Qiaosheng poured cold water on this. He is not optimistic about qualifying for the National Football World Cup and hopes that fans will not be eager for quick success.
“Our Chinese football is now very poor in soil, and the overall professionalism is not good. We don’t want to ask the national team every time. The level of our national team lies there, and the reality lies there.”< /p>
In Han Qiaosheng’s view, the problems of Chinese football have been accumulated for a long time.”Chinese football is like a cancer patient, with many illnesses and accumulated over a long period of time. It is impossible that Chinese football is not good here, and the Chinese team is required to qualify for the World Cup. I feel unrealistic.”
In his opinion, the Chinese team may be able to qualify from the group stage in a competition where all Asian members participate. But the final ranking is either sixth or seventh.”If you don’t believe me, we will ride a donkey and read the songbook, and wait and see.”
“The Chinese Football Association has done something down-to-earth.”
In 2020, the entire world sports arena is strongly impacted by the epidemic. Chinese football is no exception. However, in an environment where the domestic anti-epidemic work has achieved remarkable results, most football leagues can be conducted in a closed environment.
In this regard, Han Qiaosheng”likes” for the Chinese Football Association. He believes that last season’s professional league has done”very well” in competition organization and media communication.
“Not only the Chinese Super League and China League One matches, but also the Football Association Cup and China League Two games, but also It was held very well. This is where it succeeded, and it shows that the Chinese Football Association has done something down-to-earth.”

The”enhanced” salary limit policy and the non-corporate name change policy of the Football Association launched by the Football Association at the end of 2020 have caused a certain degree of controversy.
Especially in the recent period, when some clubs were renamed, there was strong resistance among local fans. Public opinion continues to dispute this, and some media criticize this policy.
However, Han Qiaosheng holds a more positive attitude towards these two policies and believes that the Chinese Football Association has done a lot of work on top-level design.
He believes that, like the achievements of the National Football Team, the effectiveness of reforms cannot be rushed for quick success.

“We need to cut down a big tree, not with a single axe. It needs 98 and 99 axes in front of it before it can succeed. So I think Chinese football, Including the Chinese Football Association, there is still a long way to go.” Han Qiaosheng said.
“The way of Chinese football is not just to cure the brain”
Recently, the reality show”Super Ball Boy”, which Han Qiaosheng served as the general commentator of the youth football competition, is currently on the air. In the program, young players trained in various youth training modes compete on the same field and communicate with each other. The broadcast of this program also brought people’s attention to the topic of Chinese football youth training.
Han Qiaosheng introduced that the football teenagers in the show mainly come from three types of youth training systems:youth echelon of professional teams, campus football, and private youth training programs such as”Captain Football” in cooperation with schools.

In the program, he not only felt the cheerful and free personality of the children developed by football, but also had more thoughts on the youth training of Chinese football.
“These three models are all positive attempts, but I believe that China will be more of campus football in the future. For places with economic conditions, such as the”Captain Football” model, there will be more More and more people follow suit.”
Of course, in Han Qiaosheng’s view, there is still a long way to go in the youth training of Chinese football.”We have not really taken a path suitable for the development of Chinese campus football, nor have we taken a path that can be promoted in more places across the country.”

Han Qiaosheng introduced that through its own efforts and learning from Brazil, China’s neighbor, Japan, has grown its national team into a second-rate team in the world. Some private football matches in Japan also have high ratings. Such a football culture environment is currently not available in China.
“The path of Chinese football is not only to manage the brain—professionalism, but to lay a solid foundation and do a good job at the feet, so that there is hope for the future of Chinese football.” (Wang Hao)
