Asian games 2018 soccer final highlightsJAKARTA (Reuters) – Indonesia hopes hosting the upcoming Asian Games will help revive the fortunes of its troubled national soccer team and act as a springboard for their qualification for the Paris Olympics, the nation’s soccer association said. For the very first time, esports has a presence at the Asian Games, albeit not in a full capacity; six video games are featured as demonstration sports, meaning there’s no medals involved. Even so, their inclusion is a big step for esports on the international sports stage, showcasing the possibility of competitive games intermingling with traditional sports in large-scale competition.
Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Heung Min Son is set to feature in probably the most nervous football match of his career. The forward who presently plays for Tottenham Hotspur in the English Premier League has the threat of 2-year compulsory military service looming over his head if he fails to inspire the South Korean football team to a win in the Asian Games 2018 final over Japan today.

Theoretically, the reason for Luis Severino’s dreadful, rotten, flea-bagged second half of 2018 was body language. Before throwing a fastball, he does something. He twitches. He fidgets. Maybe he scratches his billiards. He does something. The Redsocks supposedly saw it and knew when fastballs were on the way. Once they broke the Sevy Code, he was done.
Since sealing qualification for the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup France earlier this year, Japan have embarked on preparing for the global showpiece. This Asian Games understandably provided their coach Takakura with the chance to test different players with a host of new faces called up into the squad. Despite the fresh blend, it proved a successful campaign for Japan with their new-look side winning all five matches en route to the title.
The challenge in Jakarta is greater for we need to provide more venues. We already have the iconic Senayan Sport Complex but all the venues need major renovations.

South Korea’s 2-1 victory over Japan at the Asian Games soccer final on Saturday earned star forward Son Heung-min a gold medal— and an exemption from nearly two years of mandatory military duty South Korean law states that all able-bodied men of a certain age must perform 21 months of service in the armed forces, though athletes who medal at the Olympics or win gold at the Asian Games are excused. Son, a standout for English Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur, would have had to sacrifice the prime of his career had he lost on Saturday. He didn’t, and Son’s employers seem pretty happy about the result.
The Asian Games aren’t officially recognized by FIFA, but Son’s predicament ratcheted up the stakes for a tournament that rarely registers on the radar of world soccer. Nations field Under-23 squads, but teams are granted three spots for older participants. Given that this was the 26-year-old Son’s last chance at a military exemption, he missed the start of Tottenham’s season to try and lead South Korea to gold. He’s likely the best player to ever play in this tournament, but victory wasn’t a given, and South Korea faced multiple close calls along the way.

jakarta palembang 2018 asian games soccer resultsJAKARTA (Reuters) – Indonesia hopes hosting the upcoming Asian Games will help revive the fortunes of its troubled national soccer team and act as a springboard for their qualification for the 2024 Paris Olympics, the nation’s soccer association said. A flagship KONAMI IP, the Winning Eleven soccer game series has been enjoyed for over 20 years, going back to its birth as a console title in 1995. Globally, the series has sold over 100 million copies to date, with elements such as the games’ incredible realism and controls highly rated by players around the world. The series is also established in eSports competition; what began as a regional tournament in Europe in 2001 has grown into PES LEAGUE, an eSports world championship held every year. In addition, the series is gathering further attention as an eSports title both domestically and abroad, having been selected as part of the Culture program of Iki Iki Ibaraki Yume Kokutai – the 74th National Sports Festival, as well as being chosen to be part of a showcase competition at the 18th Asian Games – Jakarta Palembang.
Korea have taken part in the Asian Games football tournament before – and their players have won exemption before – but apart from 2014 on home soil (when Son did not play as Bayer Leverkusen refused to release him for a tournament not recognised by Fifa), not that often. This time feels much bigger. The presence and profile of Son, whose time is running out, has made a regional story into a bona fide global one.
