Today, Beijing time, Guangzhou R&F defeated Qingdao Huanghai Qinggang 2-1 and successfully relegated with a total score of 2-1. After the game, R&F coach Van Bronckhorst attended the press conference.
Because of the epidemic, this year's league is particularly difficult, and all organizers participating in the event are also particularly difficult. Everyone is aware of the difficulty of the game, and the elimination system is not easy for players. We started playing a bit tight, but we played better and better afterwards. Although we were scored, everyone was not afraid of danger. I am very happy, I know how important this game is. We scored two beautiful goals and also controlled the game. We are very happy to win the game. This is a special season for everyone. It is not easy to be able to play this season under the new crown epidemic. I think my players have done a very good job. I am very grateful to all the staff who have worked hard. We will enjoy tonight. This wonderful night. We will have the Football Association Cup next game, hoping to play the next game well.
This season is not easy. The team has made a lot of efforts to succeed in relegation. The interval between the two stages is very short. We are very proud of the team's performance. There are four games ahead. We should enjoy this moment and enjoy the joy of success in relegation. We can allow the players to have a drink tonight. The pressure in the second stage will be even greater. In the first stage, we still have the possibility of fighting for four. In fact, we have already set our goal in the second stage in the last two games. We also performed well in the first round. We played aggressively in the second round. We will have more players available for the remaining four games to prepare for the FA Cup.
In the first stage, after we lost Zahavi and Saba, the team needed to quickly bring in two foreign players. They (Adrian and Zivkovic) were introduced because they are familiar with Chinese football and they are of great help to the team. Their tacit understanding has greatly improved, and I am also very satisfied with the team's performance. Regarding whether they will continue to stay in the team, it will be decided later.
Our focus has not yet been fully placed on the FA Cup, we still need to focus on the next game, hoping that the team can adjust the state and maintain an upward momentum.
