Thai Soccer Coach Ishii, The Leader who Made the Korean Team Cry in the ACL 7 Years Ago



In the 2017 ACL group stage, they lost 0-2, 0-4 to Ulsan in the K-League, and won the league at Kashima and finished second in the Club World Cup.

Masatada Ishii, the coach of the Thai national team who is playing against the 'Hwangseonhongho', is an experienced leader in the Japanese professional soccer J-League.

After ending his playing career and starting a new career as a coach in 1999, he worked as a soccer coach in the J-League for 20 years.

In particular, he worked for Kashima Antlers for 18 years in positions such as coach and manager. 

After a long coaching career, he became the official coach of Kashima in July 2015, and during his tenure of less than two years, he brought pain to the Korean K League team. 카지노사이트

In the 2017 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Champions League (ACL), Ulsan Hyundai (currently Ulsan HD) of the K League Classic (1st division) was eliminated in the group stage.

Ulsan finished the 2016 season in 4th place in the league and did not receive a ticket to the ACL, which is awarded up to 3rd place.

However, Jeonbuk Hyundai was deprived of its right to participate in the tournament, and its appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS) was dismissed, which was a stroke of luck.

Ulsan's first opponent in Group E of the group stage was Kashima, led by coach Ishii.

Ulsan, who had started anew under coach Kim Do-hoon at the time, lost 0-2 in the away game held on February 21, 2017.

The group stage was played home and away, and Ulsan met Kashima once more.

On April 26 of that year, Ulsan, desperate for revenge, lost 0-4 at Ulsan Munsu Stadium.

They scored four goals in the second half alone.

With this loss, Ulsan, whose tournament record was 1 win, 1 draw, and 3 losses, was confirmed to be eliminated from the group stage.

On the other hand, Kashima secured its 3rd win (2 losses) in Group E and confirmed its advancement to the round of 16.

Kashima, who won the J1 League this season, also participated in the 2016 FIFA Club World Cup as the host country's league champion.

Kashima, who reached the final by defeating Auckland City (New Zealand), Mamelodi Sundowns (South Africa), and Atlético Nacional (Colombia), missed out on the championship after being blocked by Real Madrid, a famous Spanish soccer team.

They did well in the first and second halves with a score of 2-2 against Real Madrid, but lost 2-4 in overtime after giving up consecutive goals to Cristiano Ronaldo (currently Al-Nasr).

Until Coach Ishii took office, Kashima was repeatedly caught by K-League teams.

In the ACL held in the first half of 2015, just before his appointment, he was pushed out of competition with FC Seoul in Group H and fell out of the group stage.

Kashima, who fell 0-1 to Seoul in the away game, gave up the winning goal to Molina in extra time in the second half of the home game, which was the final game of the group stage, and lost 2-3.

Seoul, which won this game, advanced to the round of 16 in second place in the group, while Kashima was eliminated.

When Coach Ishii was a coach assisting other coaches, K-League teams mainly caused pain to Kashima.

Kashima fell in the round of 16 in all ACLs in 2009, 2010, and 2011.

The opponents were all K League teams.

It was blocked by Seoul in 2009 and 2011, and by Pohang Steelers in 2010.

In particular, there was a fierce battle with Seoul in 2009.

After drawing 2-2 in regular time and overtime, they lost 4-5 in a penalty shootout.

Coach Ishii, who left Kashima in May 2017, moved to Omiya Ardija, which was in danger of relegation, but was unable to prevent the relegation.

When he failed to win promotion to the first division the following year, he resigned from his position as coach and moved to Thailand.

He took charge of Buriram United in 2021 and led the team to three wins (league, cup, and league cup) for two consecutive years.

The Football Association of Thailand, which dismissed coach Alexandre Voeking after losing to China in the 2026 North and Central America World Cup Asian second qualifying round in November last year, appointed coach Ishii as the successor.

The Korean national soccer team, led by interim coach Hwang Seon-hong, is attempting a 'win streak of atonement' against Thailand, which was reorganized under Coach Ishii.

The 3rd and 4th games of the North and Central America World Cup Asia 2nd qualifying round between Korea and Thailand will be held at Seoul World Cup Stadium at 8 p.m. on the 21st and at Rajamangala Stadium in Bangkok, Thailand at 9:30 p.m. on the 26th.

The national team, which was eliminated in the semifinals after a poor performance in the 2023 Qatar Asian Cup, was involved in 'Table Tennis Gate', where Lee Kang-in (Paris Saint-Germain) and captain Son Heung-min (Tottenham) physically collided, and some players played cards for money with employees of the Korea Football Association.

It has been embroiled in repeated incidents and scandals, including 'Cardgate'.

Hwang Seon-hong's national soccer team is trying to overturn public opinion with a multi-score win streak.

Thailand's FIFA ranking is 101st, 79 places lower than Korea.
