Stielike dismissed from head coach post after loss to Qatar
Stielike was the longest head coach of the Korean national football team, holding the post for 2 years and nine months, but as the team failed to perform in the final qualification matches for the 2018 FIFA World Cup, the KFA decided to end Stielike’s tenure.
Lee Yong-soo, KFA head technical director, has also announced his intention to resign from his position.
With two final qualification matches remaining, Korea will have to find a new head coach to help it qualify for its ninth entry into the FIFA World Cup.
