Football fans’ concerns are not limited to Lake Klinsmann. Voices of concern are also high for Olympic team member Hwang Seon-hong, who showed difficulties even against teams that were one level below him. In order to turn all of this around, you have to kill two birds with one stone: results and content.
The Korean Olympic soccer team, led by coach Hwang Seon-hong, will play the final match of the 2024 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Under-23 Asian Cup Preliminary Group B against Myanmar at the Changwon Soccer Center at 8 p.m. on the 12th.
The 2024 U-23 Asian Cup, held in Qatar next year, also serves as the final qualifier for the Paris Olympics held in the same year. In this preliminary round, Korea was in the same group as Qatar, the host country of the U-23 Asian Cup, Kyrgyzstan, and Myanmar. They were all teams that were considered to be one level below Korea, so it seemed natural that they would pass the competition.
However, they suffered a helpless 0-2 loss in the first match against Qatar. Even if the results were not reflected because Qatar automatically advanced to the U-23 Asian Cup as the host country, it was an embarrassing result.
Korea, which had suffered a blow from the beginning, sought to turn the tide in the second match against Kyrgyzstan. The game, which was expected to score multiple goals with Hong Yun-sang (Pohang) scoring the first goal in the 3rd minute of the first half, developed frustratingly as the opponent was unable to open the goal, and ultimately ended in a 1-0 win.
Korea, whose mood has become more subdued after poor performances in the first two games, must secure both results and content through the final match against Myanmar to save face. A draw against Myanmar is all it takes to advance to the U-23 Asian Cup finals, but if the team performs poorly against Myanmar, which is considered one of the weakest teams in Southeast Asia, fans’ criticism of the national team, which has lost trust, will inevitably grow.
Korea showed a significant lack of detail in its attacks against Qatar and Kyrgyzstan. In addition, there were more backpasses and lateral passes than forward passes, resulting in a high ‘useless possession rate’. The inexperienced rear build-up also provided an excuse for the opponent to counterattack.카지노
There are many unique players in the national team’s offensive line, including Um Ji-seong and Heo Yul (Gwangju), Jeong Sang-bin (Minnesota), and Hong Yun-sang. In order to save them, a certain level of bold forward passing and bold moves that can embarrass the opponent are necessary. If the previous poor performance against Myanmar is repeated, fans’ gaze towards Hwang Seon-hong is expected to freeze even further.
