Relying on Hulk's penalty kick, Shanghai SIPG defeated the powerful Beijing Zhonghe Guoan 1-0 in the first stage of the Chinese Super League on September 25, and secured the top spot in the Suzhou division. In the last round of the next round, SIPG coach Pereira can send a substitute to feel the atmosphere and let the main players rest.
In the first stage of this year's Super League, SIPG team showed two "green leaves" midway through the starting lineup: midfielder Yang Shiyuan worked hard and was called a "wiper blade" for midfield sweeps, showing the distinctive characteristics of Korean players; Shanghai football star Li Longhai His son, Li Shenglong, must be conscientious in every ball, just like fighting for the "bulldog" in the frontcourt.
In the 2020 Super League, the rules for foreign aid use have changed: from the original 4 to 3, to 5 to 4. The addition of a foreign aid means that the viewing of the game is enhanced, and it also means that the team's combat effectiveness is improved. This season, Oscar, who has the title of No. 1 foreign aid in the Super League, leads the Shanghai SIPG’s foreign aid team.
Judging from the playing time, there are 3 iron men in Shanghai SIPG. They played more than 1,000 minutes in 13 rounds, including the third Oscar. Yan Junling, who played the most minutes, is indispensable in the goalkeeper position; the second Wang Shenchao, the same thunder is different; the reason why Oscar only played 1035 minutes and ranked third is because he had felt muscle discomfort and asked for a rest. The field continues to recuperate.
Even so, Oscar's 5 goals and 8 offenses are enough to make the coaching staff and fans happy. 8 assists have led the Chinese Super League assists list, 5 goals are also the second scorer in the SIPG team. The fans sighed that SIPG’s offense relied on Oscars. Without Oscars, SIPG’s offense has almost no direction.
Oscar is the most red flower in the foreign aid safflower array. The remaining 4 foreign players are not bad: Hulk, despite the obvious decline in athletics, is bigger than the horse, and he still scored 5 goals, even if most of them were penalty kicks, he was still tied for second place with Oscar. Shooter. Austrian center Anautović was withdrawn from the starting list yesterday for gastrointestinal discomfort. He has scored 7 goals in 11 games this season and is SIPG's top scorer.
In addition, Lopez, who started 9 times, scored 4 goals. Although it feels like an anticlimax, his speed and technique are still trusted by the coaching staff. The newly joined Australian foreign aid Mu Yi played 3 games and handed over 1 goal data. He still needs time to adapt to the Super League. Mu Yi's predecessor, Ahmedov, made 8 starts, 1 goal and 2 assists. Although he has left the team and moved to Tianjin TEDA, the "Wu Yao Wang" is still missed by SIPG fans.
It is not difficult to see from the statistics of foreign aid goals that SIPG’s current tactical structure is very clear: local players are responsible for the dirty work of defensive sweeps, rescue and destruction in the midfield and backfield, and the foreign aid Trident plays an important role in destroying the city. . Oscar played the midfield hub and dispatched the team's offense.
The whole team structure is a foregone conclusion. The local SIPG players need to be willing to be green leaves and focus more on the defensive end. In fact, Pereira is a coach who attaches great importance to defense. In the 2018 season, SIPG can overwhelm Evergrande to win the Chinese Super League championship. On the surface, it appears that the frontcourt attack group composed of Hulk, Wu Lei and Oscar is extremely sharp. It was the Thunder counterattack after the whole team twisted into a rope to stand on defense. When Hulk, who was reluctant to defend, was taking the lead in returning to defense, SIPG used a strong defense to build the foundation of the championship.
SIPG played against Guoan yesterday. At the beginning of the season, Yang Shiyuan and Li Shenglong, who were all substitutes, started the game together. Their playing style, game style, mental temperament, from the bench to the starter, can give other local players more enlightenment: on the premise of foreign aid occupying 4 pits in the frontcourt, local players need to face reality: think To get more chances to appear on the field, you must be based on fighting, putting fighting and defense in the first place-from the bottom of your heart, you are positioned to play the team's green leaves and provide supporting services for the front and outside aid saffrons.
SIPG team won Guoan, of course the foreign aid made a great contribution, but Yang Shiyuan and Li Shenglong, the two "kraft candy" that must compete for every goal, shined behind the scenes. Yang Shiyuan comes from Genbao base. Although he is not tall, he has plenty of physical fitness and a tenacious style. He has the distinctive characteristics of Korean players. Last season, he was dug out by SIPG’s coaching staff. Coach Pereira once said with emotion: “Yang Shiyuan is like a player falling from the sky. It’s a pleasant surprise to find that he can play high-intensity games.” However, maybe It is the style of the game that is really killing his life. Yang Shiyuan has been plagued by injuries many times in his career. He suffered serious injuries in the AFC knockout matches last year. Fortunately, he recovered after surgery and is now back again.
Against Guoan, Pereira used Yang Shiyuan and Guoan’s core Vieira to "reduce". Yang Shiyuan, like a plaster, guards against Biella, who is also not tall but fast and has a low center of gravity, and basically limits Biella's performance. You know, once Vieira is allowed to easily take the ball and give a sharp pass, no defender in the entire Super League can stop such a sword.
Like Yang Shiyuan, forward Li Shenglong is also a system player who does not spare his physical strength, is not lazy, and is willing to sacrifice himself for the team as a whole. In the game, Li Shenglong struggled with the opponent's defender when attacking, he did not hesitate to steal his life while defending, and he even made a single-handed rush after a successful steal. He could shoot a little too hastily. If he could score the ball in time for Oscar who followed up in the middle, he would deal with the ball more reasonably . The appearance of the FA Cup was also the final moment for Li Shenglong's header, helping SIPG team to beat Chongqing to advance to the next round.
Pereira also appreciates Li Shenglong’s fighting spirit: “Li Shenglong is a fighter, and he has the kind of spirit I want in him. Whether it’s 90 minutes or 5 minutes, he uses the same mental outlook to play, and there are also forwards. The sense of smell. It’s an honor for the coach to have such a type of player."
Foreign aid is responsible for attacking the world, and local players do their jobs on the defensive end. This is by no means the practice of the SIPG team. The 16 clubs of the Chinese Super League are doing this routinely. Among the top 20 scorers in the Super League, there are only 2 local players: Wei Shihao, who scored 6 goals, ranked 10th, and Gao Lin, who scored 5 goals, ranked 17th. The remaining 18 people are all foreign aid faces.
At the club level, foreign aid is responsible for offense and Chinese players do a good job of defense. This is a manifestation of professional division of labor and helps improve combat effectiveness. After all, the foreign players have stronger personal abilities. Handing the ball to the frontcourt foreign players to play together can simplify the complex problems of offense. This in itself is a great wisdom that reduces complexity to simplicity.
However, if you take a long-term view and consider the development of the Chinese national team, the division of labor between the Chinese Super League team will bury a lot of hidden dangers. In the Chinese Super League, the frontcourt offensive positions are all occupied by foreign players. Local offensive players either serve as substitutes or change positions to play as guards. Their offensive ability cannot be strengthened in the game and gradually wear out.
When the Chinese national team goes to the intercontinental competition, these local international footballers will suddenly find that they are playing very strangely in the offensive position of the frontcourt, without feeling or understanding. For so many years, the weakness of the forward that has always plagued the national football team for many years is nothing more than the same: local players can hardly play the offensive position in the Chinese Super League, and the organizational and offensive local players can only fend for themselves.
In my opinion, every club’s head coach is only responsible for the contract. He needs to complete the performance indicators. There is no need to consider the long-term luxury of cultivating local talents for Chinese football. At the same time, Chinese local players can only adapt to the current cruel environment and the big trend. They have to find patterns from Yang Shiyuan and Li Shenglong and sum up their experience.
Yang Shiyuan and Li Shenglong are both members of the Genbao base in the 1993-1994 age group. They won the National Games championship, but their overall strength is obviously not as good as the previous batch of Wu Lei, Yan Junling, and Wang Shenchao. They also did not have the entire team to compete in the second group. , The tempering experience of the Chinese professional league. Today, they can stand out in the fierce competition and find a place. In addition to their own efforts, it is more important to match the tactical requirements of the coaching staff, which is more in line with the current overall development trend of the Super League.
If Li Shenglong and Yang Shiyuan are used as mirrors, SIPG players such as Chen Binbin and Lin Chuangyi with certain offensive characteristics, because the defensive strength is not up to standard, the fight is not strong enough, and the SIPG coaching staff’s requirements for local players cannot be kept up. The entire Chinese Super League’s local players are "leafing". After all, the competition in the Chinese Super League is too fierce, and winning and relegation cannot be lost. At this time, it is too extravagant to leave the offensive position to local players, and no one wants to pay such high tuition. It is not difficult to find that in today's Super League, if there is no strong enough physical confrontation and no defensive performance, the living space of local players, especially offensive players, has become more and more constrained. This is a very cruel but unavoidable reality.
Of course, for Chinese football managers, it is entirely possible to plug loopholes through top-level design and policy guidance. For example, by adjusting the number of foreign players to make room for local offensive players; for example, limiting the number of foreign players in the second and third tier leagues to ensure that young local offensive players can be trained in low-level leagues. Otherwise, if the Chinese Super League relies on foreign aid and the phenomenon of "greenery" of local players is left alone, the more exciting the Chinese Super League, the more difficult it will be for the Chinese national team to compete in the World Cup.
