Tottenham ‘extremely nervous’ ahead of Liverpool match… “Son Heung-min and Madison, we need to watch their condition” → Johnson confirmed to be absent

He is in a state of ‘super tension’ ahead of the Liverpool game.

British media ‘The Athletic’ reported the injury situation of the Tottenham Hotspur players on the 29th (Korean time). Tottenham is preparing for the 7th round of the 2023-24 English Premier League against Liverpool on the 1st of next month.

Several players are suspected of being injured ahead of such an important game. According to the media, coach Enze Postecoglou reportedly said, “Son Heung-min and James Maddison have been training well.” The two players showed some discomfort during the North London derby against Arsenal on the 24th. Coach Postekoglou added, “We need to watch the condition of both players a little more.”토토사이트

However, Brennan Johnson’s absence was confirmed. Johnson left Nottingham and joined Tottenham ahead of this season. He is a player who can pose a threat to opponents during counterattacks with his fast speed and decent dribbling. He was brought in at the end of the transfer window, and has appeared in two Tottenham games, but has yet to score any attacking points.

Johnson, who suffered a hamstring injury in the game against Arsenal, will miss the game against Liverpool. However, Coach Postekoglou explained, “Johnson’s injury is not serious.” He is expected to be able to play again in the early future.

Meanwhile, Tottenham, who are on an undefeated streak this season, have reached their biggest challenge. This time’s opponent, Liverpool, is a team that has constantly harassed Tottenham over the past six years. Tottenham’s last victory against Liverpool was six years ago. At that time, Tottenham invited Liverpool to their home and won 4-1. Harry Kane scored multiple goals and Son Heung-min and Dele Alli scored one goal each.

Since then, they have never been able to catch Liverpool. In particular, they clashed in the final of the UEFA Champions League (UCL) in the 2018-19 season, but lost 0-2 and finished in second place.

Pohang trying to catch up, Ulsan trying to outrun… East Coast derby shakes up the championship race

This is an east coast derby that could have a big impact on the competition to win the K League 1 this season.

Pohang Steelers and Ulsan Hyundai will face off in the 32nd round of ‘Hana One Q K League 1 2023’ held at Pohang Steel Yard at 2 pm on the 30th. Currently, Ulsan is in first place in the league with 65 points, and Pohang is in second place in the league with 57 points.

The East Coast derby is taking place at a more important time than ever. The two teams are competing for the championship until the end of the season with an 8-point difference. In the previous game, Ulsan won against Suwon FC, while Pohang drew with Daegu FC, slightly widening the point gap. Therefore, no team is thinking about a draw in this game. Pohang plans to narrow the point gap with Ulsan, and Ulsan plans to catch up with Pohang.토토사이트

The atmosphere is better in Pohang. After losing in the last match against Ulsan, Pohang has not lost in the last 9 games with 5 wins and 4 draws. At the same time, Ulsan had mixed results, losing to Incheon United, Suwon Samsung, Gangwon FC, and Gwangju FC. As the point gap between the two teams narrowed, the importance of this East Coast derby increased.

If Pohang wins, the point gap between the two teams will be narrowed to 5 points. Excluding this game, there are a total of 6 games remaining, so if Pohang enters the final round with a narrow point gap with Ulsan, they can face the remaining schedule with the hope of a comeback win. This is why today’s game is important for Pohang.

This game is important for Ulsan as well. Ulsan achieved a tough win against Suwon FC in the last round, and Pohang drew with Daegu and succeeded in widening the gap with Pohang. If they keep up the momentum and win the East Coast derby, the point gap with Pohang will widen to 11 points. Although there is still some schedule left, Ulsan will be able to complete the remaining schedule with a little closer to winning.

Both teams have some power leaks. This is because the players selected for the Hangzhou Asian Games were players who played important roles in the team. Pohang’s key offensive resource, Ko Young-jun, was selected for the Asian Games, and Ulsan’s Seol Young-woo and Eom Won-sang left for Hangzhou. The absence of these players has been filled by other players and the resourcefulness of the two coaches, and the same will be done in the east coast derby.

In the two previous matches held, Ulsan achieved 1 win and 1 draw. Joo Min-gyu, who succeeded in scoring in both games, is aiming for his third consecutive goal in the East Coast derby in this game.

“You knew me?” A player from Singapore, a baseball wasteland, recognized Moon Dong-ju.

Already a world star? A baseball player in a baseball wasteland recognized Moon Dong-ju’s face.

The Korean baseball team’s challenge for its fourth consecutive Asian Games gold medal is approaching. With the group stage scheduled to open on the 1st of next month, Korean players first stepped onto the decisive battle ground, the Shaoxing Baseball-Softball Center, on the 29th. Moon Dong-ju, one of the pillars of the one-two punch selected by coach Ryu Joong-il, also started his first training with a confident expression.

I arrived in Hangzhou on the 28th, only one day had passed, but I quickly became absorbed into the atmosphere of the Asian Games. ‘Pin trading (a tradition of exchanging symbolic pins of each country, sponsor, or media at international competitions. It is mainly active in the Olympics)’ is also one of the things Moon Dong-ju wants to try. Dong-ju Moon said, “I want to exchange badges (pins), but the player I want to exchange with hasn’t appeared yet.”안전놀이터

At the same time, he related the episode, saying, “Today (Xiao Xing) was at the athletes’ village, and the Singapore players recognized him first, so we took pictures and talked to him. He said there are no mounds in Singapore at all. We talked about that.”

When asked about the reason for the conversation, Dongju Moon replied, “He just knew me.” He also added, “I talked to him because he speaks English, and if I get the chance, I would like to exchange badges with the Singaporean player.” Moon Dong-ju was so ‘serious about collecting’ that he even talked about pin trades with reporters while returning to the team bus.

Of course, his most desired collectible is the Asian Games gold medal. Moon Dong-ju’s eyes sparkled as he said, “My physical condition is very good. It is difficult to express my condition in terms of percentage, but I would like to say that I am in very good condition.”

He also said, “All athletes probably feel pressure about winning a medal. (Laughing) I try not to feel pressure, but it still feels like pressure, and if we have the will to become one and win together, that pressure will disappear. Overwhelm the opponent. “I think it’s important to become a team that works together,” he said.

His last first-team game was against LG on the 3rd, and he maintained his sense of actual game by pitching 2 and 3 innings in the Futures League games on the 12th and 17th, respectively. Still, the gap between tense games is longer than that of other national team pitchers.

Moon Dong-ju said, “I didn’t make any special efforts to maintain my sense of real combat, but I’ve had a long rest before and went out. I prepared like I did then. I don’t think there will be any major problems.” He appeared as a pitcher for Sangmu in a practice game against Sangmu held at Gocheok Dome on the 26th and recorded 3 innings against the national team batter, allowing 1 hit, 5 strikeouts, and no runs.

It is also important for him to adapt to an unfamiliar mound. Coach Ryu Joong-il said that the mound is higher than the KBO League stadiums and the angle to the flat ground is steeper. Moon Dong-ju explained, “I felt the same way. Still, I think it would be advantageous if the mound was high. Still, since it is my first time stepping on the mound, I don’t think there will be any major problems if I step on it well in training tomorrow and check its condition carefully to prepare.”

There’s no apology…Naples Announces Official ‘Statement’ On Controversy Over ‘Mockery Of Osimen’ “There Was No Intention Of Joking”

Napoli have released a statement addressing the Victor Osimhen taunting controversy.

In the 2022-23 season, Napoli accomplished a great feat. They won the Scudetto, which seemed unlikely going into the season, but they maintained their momentum from the opening game until the end of the season. The title was clinched with five games left in the league and they were able to end the campaign on a high note. The first Scudetto in 33 years, since the 1989-90 season with Diego Maradona. Fans, players, and everyone involved were ecstatic.

There were many players to thank for this. Hvitsa Kvaradzehelia, who came from Georgia to become a sensation; Victor Osimhen, who hadn’t lived up to his transfer fee for two seasons before reaching a “career high” and becoming one of the best strikers in the world; and Kim Min-jae, who has gone beyond Italy to become one of the best center backs in the world. In addition, Stanislaw Lobotka and Giovanni Di Lorenzo did their part.

Osimhen was at the center of it all. After rising through the Belgian and French leagues, he arrived in the Italian Serie A in 2020 for a staggering €75 million (approx. KRW 107 billion). With that kind of money, Osimhen was given a lot of opportunities, and in his first two seasons, he made over 60 appearances, leading Napoli’s attack.

However, it was not enough. While he scored double-digit league goals in both seasons, he was never overwhelming. It wasn’t bad, but with so much money invested in him, Napoli wanted more from him.

Then last season, Poten broke out. After a somewhat disappointing last two years, where his price tag was considered too high for his performance, he was arguably the best striker in the world, scoring 26 goals in the league alone in the 2022-23 season. At the end of the season, he was named Serie A’s best striker.

Not surprisingly, he was on the radar of many clubs. Manchester United, Newcastle United, Liverpool, and Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) have all been mentioned as possible suitors as they look to bolster their attack.

Saudi Arabia, who were active in the summer transfer window, have also expressed interest in Osimhen. According to Loic Tanji of French outlet L’Equipe, Al-Hilal, who failed to sign Kylian Mbappe, will launch a bid for Osimhen.

Napoli’s stance was, unsurprisingly, ‘not for sale’. They wanted to keep the momentum going into the new season and wanted to keep their mainstays like Osimhen and Kvarachelia. The need to keep Osimhen is even greater now that the departure of Kim Min-jae, a key part of the defense, has been confirmed.

President Aurelio De Laurentiis revealed the amount of money needed to sign Osimhen. It was an astronomical amount. It was a no-sell. “De Laurentiis has revealed that any club wanting to sign Osimhen this summer will have to pay £170 million ($285 million),” according to the Mirror.

Napoli then attempted to re-sign Osimhen, with the first meeting ending in failure, but the club persisted. While nothing is “official” yet, many sources have predicted that Osimhen has a future with Napoli. Italian journalist Niccolò Skira wrote on social media, “Osimhen’s contract extension with Napoli is imminent. The contract runs until 2027. A meeting will take place in the next few days and the new contract will include a buyout clause.” The player’s contract is set to run until 2027, with a base salary of €6.5 million plus bonuses.

So, he’s staying at Napoli for the new season. In the absence of Kim Min-jae, his importance has become even greater, and so far he has lived up to the hype. In seven games, including cup competitions, he has scored four goals and is second on the team’s scoring charts.

Defending champions Napoli, however, have been in a bit of a slump. After a 3-1 win over Frosinone in the league opener, Napoli got off to a good start with a 2-0 win over Sassuolo in the second round. However, subsequent draws against Lazio and Genoa left them without a point and away from the top of the table. Fortunately, a 2-1 win over Braga in the first leg of their UEFA Champions League (UCL) group stage ended their winless run and they were looking to continue that trend in the league.

That’s how Napoli met Bologna in the fifth round of the league. Given the difference in objective power, a win was expected. In fact, the game itself was dominated by Napoli. According to soccer stats site Fúscore, Napoli had 50.9% possession and pressured Bologna with 12 shots on goal in 90 minutes. However, no goals were scored. A lack of finishing touches prevented goals from being scored and ‘Ace’ Osimhen was unlucky to miss a penalty.

There was even a controversial moment. In the 41st minute of the second half, Rudi Garcia took off Osimhen and Stanislav Lobotka in favor of Giovanni Simeone and Jens Kjaerste, but Osimhen didn’t like the decision. As he walked off the field, Osimhen shouted at Garcia and made a “2” gesture with his hand. Local speculation is that Osimhen made the gesture because he thought it would be more effective to play two strikers without him in a goal-scoring situation.

The situation sparked speculation of a rift between Osimhen and the coach. Garcia later commented on the situation, saying, “Missing a penalty is something that happens to the greatest players in history. I spoke to him about the substitution. The conversation between me and him remains in the locker room. I’m not happy with the players’ performance. But we have a lot of players and we had to use them,” he said, trying to dismiss rumors of discord.

That seemed to put the matter to rest. But then, a bigger controversy arose. Napoli posted a video on their official account that appeared to mock Osimhen, and the controversy escalated when they posted a video that appeared to be racist.메이저사이트

Many fans were outraged at the absurdity of a club mocking their own player. Osimhen’s agent was also furious. According to European soccer transfer market expert Fabrizio Romano, his agent Roberto Calenda said, “What happened today on Napoli’s official social media is unacceptable. A video mocking Osimhen was posted and then deleted. This has caused serious damage to the player. We reserve the right to do whatever is necessary, including legal action.”

Despite being caught up in an unsavory incident, Osimen remained professional. He started the last game against Udinese as a frontline striker and scored the winning goal in the 39th minute of the game with his team leading 1-0.

But the emotions weren’t entirely muted. After scoring, Osimhen made no obvious gestures. His Napoli teammates approached him, but there was no change in his expression or behavior, and he didn’t take the penalty from the spot, despite being Napoli’s official penalty kicker. This behavior was even more noteworthy because it came right after the feud.

As the situation escalated, Napoli released an official statement to quell the controversy. According to Romano, the official statement read as follows

“Napoli wishes to avoid this issue being exploited and would like to make it known that it was never our intention to offend or mock Osimhen, a treasure of the club. As proof, during the summer training period, we firmly rejected all offers for his transfer. Social media, and TikTok in particular, has always used a mild form of verbal expression. There was never any intention to mock Osimhen. In any case, if Osimhen felt offended, it indicates that this was not the intention of the club.”

However, fans were not convinced by Napoli’s explanation. The club’s defense is that they didn’t intend to mock. There was no message of apology directed at Osimhen. “He never says he’s sorry,” “He refused to apologize,” “He’s wasting his career,” “Instead of saying he’s sorry, he’s defending himself,” and so on.

Meanwhile, Osimen’s transfer rumors, which had been quieted, have resurfaced. “After the TikTok video debacle, Saudi clubs are expected to approach him in the January transfer window,” the Daily Mail reported. Chelsea and Real Madrid are also monitoring the situation.”

Yeom Ki-hoon, “Playing coach” in charge of Suwon, who is on the verge of relegation, said, “I will do my best to die for my supporters.”

Yeom Ki-hoon takes charge of crisis-ridden Suwon Samsung. Now that he is no longer a player but an acting manager, Yeom Ki-hoon has finally opened his mouth.

Suwon officially announced the dismissal of Kim Byung-soo through the media on the 26th, saying, “The club decided that special measures were inevitable to resolve the desperate crisis and rekindle the spark of hope.”

Surprisingly, it was Yeom Ki-hoon who Suwon chose to take extraordinary measures to resolve the desperate crisis, rekindle hope, and prevent relegation. He’s a legend at Suwon. It’s no exaggeration to say that he’s the most revered legend in the Suwon organization since its inception in 1996. The former Jeonbuk Hyundai and Ulsan Hyundai player has been with Suwon since 2010, except for his military service.

He played 333 games for Suwon, scoring 49 goals and 87 assists. He was born in 1983 and is still active at the age of 40. He announced his retirement at the end of last season, but the club asked him to change his mind and he will be working as a playing coach this season. This season, he played in both the K League 1 and the FA Cup. Recently, he hasn’t been on the roster at all and has been working with the coaching staff. He was preparing for his retirement by taking a class P license.

Suddenly, he was given an acting role. It was the return of Real Blue. Real Blue refers to Suwon’s policy of hiring coaches from the club. Suwon appointed one coach after another who knew Suwon better than anyone else. Starting with Seo Won-jeong, Lee Im-sang, Park Gun-ha, and Lee Byung-geun were chosen. After Lee Byung-geun, the team chose Kim Byung-soo instead of Real Blue. They decided to make a change after a string of poor results.무지개토토

Even if you’re only in charge for seven games, you don’t lead the team alone. You have to have coaches to help you with tactics and training sessions. You have to look at the whole picture with the coaches, make a plan, select players, make in-game changes, and give detailed tactical instructions. This is very difficult for acting coach Yi Ki-hoon, who was a player until recently. It’s a ridiculous gamble, but Suwon made the choice. It is understood that he anticipated that there would be backlash and criticism. They put themselves out there in the open.

The same goes for Yeom Ki-hoon. He chose to drink the poisoned chalice in order to lead the remnants. On the 28th, Yeom Ki-hoon, who hasn’t given any interviews other than press releases, revealed his feelings on his personal SNS. “I’m really sorry to say goodbye at such a difficult time. All of you have been supporting us this season despite our poor performance, and I’m really sorry,” he said.

“In the 14 years that I’ve been with Suwon, I’ve experienced countless moments of choice, and in all of them, I think I’ve made decisions that were bigger than my own personal greed and bigger than the team, and I’ve never regretted those choices. I’ve worked hard to make sure that I don’t have any regrets,” he continued.

He talked about his acting role. “It’s the same with my acting position this time. It took more courage than ever before, but it’s still my choice. I know there are some things you can’t do with your heart, but I’m going to try and do it as hard as I’ve been doing so that I don’t regret the outcome,” he said.

“I understand the concerns of many people. From worrying about my inexperience, to worrying about the love you have for me, to worrying about the future of this team, which is not a perfect solution. But I don’t think the supporters, the players, the coaching staff, the club, I don’t think there’s any difference in the size of those worries and the size of the love for Suwon. When those hearts come together, I think we’re stronger than any other team. Even in those moments of worry and anger, our players are sweating and preparing every day. We are trying to do whatever it takes to make it to the end with the hearts of many people in our hearts,” he said.

“The players and coaching staff, who will not allow my team to be relegated more than anyone else, are thinking and working hard day and night, watching the supporters who have loved this team for a longer period of time than the players, I did not want to avoid this situation and run away from it for my personal career or because I was afraid of taking responsibility. I believe that not only I, but any player or leader who loves Suwon would have done the same,” he said, referring to his reasons for accepting the acting position.

Finally, Yi Ki-hoon concluded, “I don’t mind that Suwon was able to miraculously survive from the brink every year, but it is an undeniable and unchanging fact that it was thanks to the supporters who ran and cheered as loudly as the players throughout the game. For the sake of our team, which is not over yet, as you always do in any situation, I am very sorry, but I would like to ask our players who are on the field until the end of the end to show their support and support for the members of the team called Suwon. I will try my best to die harder and harder in the remaining time so that the players who are trying to protect the team and those who love this team can make a choice without regret,” he said, urging Suwon supporters to support.

SSG·KIA who can’t work…Will Lotte’s fall baseball miracle come true for two consecutive wins?

Can the Lotte Giants pull off a fall baseball miracle?

Lotte swept the Hanwha Eagles for its second straight win to stay within striking distance of the fifth-place SSG Landers and KIA Tigers, who both lost on the same day.

Lotte is pinning its hopes on a recent trend. Lotte is 6-4 in its last 10 games, ahead of SSG (3-1, 6-2) and KIA (3-7).

Lotte defeated Hanwha 3-0 in a home game of the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League at Sajik Stadium in Busan on Aug. 28.

Riding a two-game winning streak, the seventh-place LOTTE kept its postseason hopes alive until the end of the season.먹튀검증

LOTTE starter Barnes pitched six innings of 100-pitch, four-hit ball with two walks and nine strikeouts to improve to 10-0 on the season.

At the plate, two home runs led LOTTE to victory.

Jeon Jun-woo, the most experienced player in the LOTTE lineup, hit the game-winning two-run homer off Hanwha starter Ricardo Sanchez in the fourth inning.

It was his 15th home run of the season and his fifth against a former club in the league this season.

In the seventh inning, Son Sung-bin followed with his first career home run.

The 2021 Lotte first-round catching prospect tasted his first home run in his third season and 55th game in the first team.

■ Kiwoom, Hurado pick up 10th win of the season with 6 innings of 1-run ball…4-game winning streak snapped by SSG

In Gocheok, the league’s bottom-ranked Kiwoom Heroes extended their winning streak to four games with a 4-2 victory over the road-bound SSG.

In the second inning, leadoff hitter Song Sung-moon reached on an error by the shortstop and moved to second on a sacrifice bunt by Kim Hwi-jip, and Kim Byung-hwi opened the scoring with a single to right.

It was the first RBI of the year for Kim, who made his debut in 2020.

SSG tied the game at 1-1 in the top of the fifth on a sacrifice fly by Kim Sung-hyun, but Kiwoom answered right back in the bottom of the inning with an RBI single by Lee Ju-hyung.

In the seventh inning, Song Sung-moon’s bases-loaded walk and Kim Hwi-jip’s sacrifice fly plated two runs to put the game out of reach.

SSG got a run back in the bottom of the ninth on Ha Jae-hoon’s RBI single, but pinch-hitter Lee Jung-bum was stranded with two outs.

Kiwoom starter Ariel Furado improved to 10-8 on the season with six innings of four-hit ball, one walk, five strikeouts and one earned run.

NC scored the most runs in the KBO this season with 18, and Son led the league in batting average with four hits.

In Changwon, the NC Dinos recorded the most runs scored in the KBO this season with an 18-3 victory over KIA.

Third-place NC became the third team in the league to reach the 70-win plateau (57 L, 2 T) and extended its lead over the fourth-place Doosan Bears, who did not play on the day, to three games.

Down 0-1 in the bottom of the first inning, NC easily tied the game with a double by leadoff hitter Son As-seop and an RBI single by Park Min-woo.

With the hit, Son became the second player in KBO history to reach the 2,400-hit plateau.

In the second inning, they scored five runs on six hits and one walk to chase KIA starter Thomas Panoni off the mound.

KIA cut the deficit to 6-3 with a two-run homer by Socrates Brito in the top of the third, but NC scored six runs in the bottom of the inning, including two-run arches by Jason Martin and Oh Young-soo, to seal the win.

The league’s batting leader Son As-seop drove in four runs on four hits to raise his season batting average to .347, closing the gap on LG’s Hong Chang-ki (0.340), who is second in the league in that category.

NC rookie Park Han-yeol, who made a strong impression from his debut at-bat with a two-run double in the 11th inning of an extra-inning win over Changwon Doosan on April 24, hit his first career home run in the eighth inning.

It was the second time this season that NC scored a run off a starter in the league.

Samsung’s Choi Chae-heung throws 6 innings of 1-run ball…first win in 15 games since returning in June

The Samsung Lions defeated the LG Twins behind a strong performance from left-handed pitcher Choi Chae-heung and a focused batting lineup.

Samsung beat visiting LG 11-1 on Monday at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul.

Choi, who had lost seven straight games since returning to the team in June after serving military service in the Armed Forces Athletic Corps (Commerce), earned his first victory of the season in 15 games.

After shutting down the LG bats with six innings of 94 pitches, six hits, one walk, four strikeouts and one unearned run, Choi harvested his first win in 737 days since September 21, 2021, against the Busan Lotte Giants.

The win snapped a four-game winning streak for LG, which until the day before had a “magic number” of six for first place in the regular season and was headed directly to the Korean Series for the first time in 29 years.

The Samsung bats wreaked havoc on the LG mound in the first inning.

With a leadoff single by Ryu Ji-hyuk and a triple by Kim Hyun-joon in the second, Samsung scored two runs in the first inning.

In the fourth inning, seven of the nine batters, starting with Oh Jae-il in the fifth and ending with Jose Pirela in the fourth, reached base, scoring five runs and pulling LG starter Lee Jung-yong off the mound.

After one inning, Samsung extended its lead to 9-0 on an RBI double by Lee Jae-hyun.

In the sixth inning, Lee Sung-kyu singled and Lee Byung-heon scored two runs on a sacrifice fly.

Samsung, which pounded out 15 hits, had its first all-star lineup of the season.

Pirela led the offense with a 3-for-5 performance, while Ryu Ji-hyuk, Koo Ja-uk, and Lee Sung-gyu each had two hits.

LG’s bench rested all but infielder Kim Min-seong and outfielder Lee Jae-won from the starting lineup as momentum shifted in the middle of the game.

Newcastle overpowered Manchester City in ‘Isak’s winning goal…Round of 16 in the League Cup

Newcastle United has advanced to the round of 16 in the English Football League Cup (EFL Cup) after defeating Manchester City.

Newcastle defeated City 1-0 on aggregate in the third round of the 2023-24 League Cup at St. James’ Park in Newcastle, England, on Monday (Aug. 28).

With the win, Newcastle advances to the Round of 16, where they will face defending champions Manchester United in the quarterfinals. United had beaten Crystal Palace 3-0 the day before.

It was City’s first defeat in nine games. City had been unbeaten in eight games, including one penalty shootout win, since losing to Arsenal on penalties in the Community Shield last month.

Newcastle struggled against City, managing just one shot on target in the first 45 minutes. The Magpies brought on Bruno Guimarães and Anthony Gordon at the start of the second half to try and get some momentum going.토토사이트

Eventually, Newcastle took the lead eight minutes into the second half when Alexander Isaacs was set up by Joelington. Joelington beat two City defenders before crossing the ball to the other side where Isaac calmly finished.

Newcastle defended for the remainder of the game, protecting their one-goal lead to secure the win. City’s Elling Holland was named to the substitutes’ bench but did not play.

While City were eliminated, the big favorites survived.

Arsenal held off Brantford 1-0, while Chelsea also beat Brighton and Hove Albion 1-0.

Liverpool advanced to the round of 16 with a 3-1 win over second-tier Leicester City.

It’s bitter at ‘5-1 Great Victory’…Hwang Sunhong “I hope I never watch a match like this again”

(Xinhua, China) – Asian Games head coach Hwang Sun-hong has once again criticized his team’s lack of focus against Kyrgyzstan.

Hwang Sun-hong’s men’s soccer team defeated Kyrgyzstan 5-1 in the round of 16 men’s soccer match at the Hangzhou 2022 Asian Games at the Jinhua Sports Center Stadium in Jinhua, China, on Sunday (June 27). Goals from Baek Seung-ho and Jeong Woo-young made it 2-1 at halftime, but the Korean men’s soccer team came out firing in the second half with a relay goal from Cho Young-wook, Jeong Woo-young and Hong Hyun-seok. With the win, the team advanced to the quarterfinals. They will face China, who defeated Qatar 1-0 at the same time.

It wasn’t as easy as the score suggests. The first half was a difficult one. Baek Seung-ho’s penalty kick goal and Jung Woo-young’s goal a minute later seemed to put the game out of reach, but Baek Seung-ho’s mistake resulted in a goal, making the score 2-1 at halftime. In the second half, after failing to capitalize on several chances, the team was able to breathe a sigh of relief with goals from Jung Woo-young, Cho Young-wook, and Hong Hyun-seok.

After the match, coach Hwang Sun-hong said, “I’m happy to be going to the next round. I think soccer is a game of flow. If we don’t sink our opponents when we have the upper hand, we give them chances and struggle. I think today was a game where we learned that lesson. I hope we don’t have to play like this next time.”토토사이트

On facing China in the quarterfinals, he said, “It’s a scenario that I fully expected. If we can’t overcome the large crowd or rough play, we can’t win the gold medal,” he said, emphasizing that we must overcome it. “We have three steps to go and no one is going to stop us. The players will take it one step at a time. I think it will be a good match,” he said, looking forward to the meeting with China.

Asked if the substitution of Lee Kang-in was planned, he said, “It was planned. There was no doubt about the victory,” he said. “However, after the first half, after the second goal, there was a lot of looseness in the game, and even apart from the goal, there were a lot of backward passes when we attacked, so I thought we needed to make fewer mistakes. In order to fully control the game, we need to have good ball possession, so we made some improvements in that area.”

Finally, as for the fact that the first goal came from a mistake, Hwang attributed it to playing too easy in the qualifiers.

“We had a lot of problems when we weren’t organized,” Hwang said. We didn’t face many counterattacks or situations like that in the qualifiers, and the players lacked awareness of those situations and struggled psychologically when they were being chased. If you go beyond the quarterfinals, you’re going to have a lot of that. It’s important not to be psychologically shaken. We need to be well organized and overcome it.”

Here’s what Hwang had to say after the match.

-How did you feel about today’s game?

“I’m happy to go to the next round. I think soccer is a game of flow. If we don’t sink the opponent when we have the lead, we give them chances and we struggle. I think today was a game where we learned that lesson. I hope we don’t have to play like this next time.”

-Your quarterfinal opponent is China. How will you prepare for it?

“It’s a scenario we’ve been expecting. If we can’t overcome the large crowd or the rough play, we won’t win the gold medal. We have three steps left and no one is going to stop us. The players will take it one step at a time. I think it will be a good match.”

-On whether the substitution of Lee Kang-in was planned.

“It was planned. It was a difficult game, but there was no doubt that we could win without Lee Kang-in.”

-What did you say to him at halftime?

“After the first half, after the second goal, there was a lot of looseness in the game and I thought we needed to cut down on our mistakes because, apart from the goal, there were a lot of backward passes when we were attacking. In order to fully control the game, we need to have good ball possession, so we worked on that.”

-The first goal came from a mistake. On how to improve going forward.

“We had a lot of problems when we weren’t organized. In the qualifiers, we didn’t face a lot of counterattacks and things like that, so we didn’t have a lot of awareness of those situations, and psychologically we struggled with being chased. In the quarterfinals, that will happen a lot. It’s important not to be psychologically shaken. You have to be well organized and get through it.”

“I don’t think it’ll be too much”. Confessing how you feel about eliminating the national team…Great Pitcher Succession Grows Up in A Week

He’s grown up in just a week. KIA Tigers’ Lee Yi-ri, 21, was at the center of the Hangzhou Asian Games controversy and suffered unwanted heartbreak and unintended growing pains.

Lee was included in the roster for the Hangzhou Asian Games, but was ultimately cut on Feb. 22. The team decided that the best performance was the standard and that Lee did not meet that standard. However, the decision sparked a swirl of controversy.

Lee was somewhat unfairly cut from the team. Lee was placed on the injured list in late August with a sore shoulder. This was followed by a blister on his left finger that prevented him from playing long innings. National team manager Ryu Joong-il kept a close eye on Lee’s condition, but on Aug. 21 against Hanwha in Daejeon, Lee took the loss after giving up five runs (four earned) on two hits, two walks, one hit batter and three strikeouts in 1 1/3 innings. His replacement was later confirmed.굿모닝토토

“It’s unfortunate that Lee Yi-ri was the last pitcher to be replaced,” said Ryu Jung-il at the press conference after the team meeting. “I saw Lee Yi-ri get hit with a blister on his finger three days ago. The trainer in charge kept checking. A week later, I checked his finger, and on the 21st, when he started, I went to see him, and although the view is a little different, I saw the blister before he pitched, he pitched less than two innings that day, and then I saw the blister afterward,” he explained.

“Lee Yi-ri is the best left-handed pitcher in Korea. He was supposed to be the main player against Taiwan and Japan, but in my eyes, he wasn’t. I wondered if he could pitch more than 7-80 pitches as a starter with this blister. I thought about it a lot. I decided to replace him because I didn’t think he could throw more than 80 pitches.”

But Lee proved that the blisters were no longer a problem. On the 27th, about a week after the news broke that he was eliminated from the national team on the 22nd. He started the second game of a doubleheader against the NC Dinos at NC Park in Changwon and pitched a complete game, throwing 77 pitches with three hits, one walk and seven strikeouts in seven innings. He proved himself to be healthy.

It’s been a heartbreaking week for Lee Yi-ri. He spoke calmly but did not hide his feelings of disappointment. “I heard the news (of being eliminated from the national team) through the club. It doesn’t feel good. I haven’t heard anything from the national team yet,” he said, adding, “It could be because I wasn’t good enough, or it could be because I was sick. But I was disappointed to hear the news from my club.”

He seemed to have established himself as the future left-handed ace of the national team, participating in both the Tokyo 2020 Olympics and the 2023 World Baseball Classic (WBC). But the controversy has turned his national team pride into a hollow feeling. “I don’t think this controversy will ever go away in my life,” Lee said. It scarred him for life.

Still, Lee’s regret and hurt have made him more mature. “It’s unfortunate, but I think it’s a professional thing to not show it. If I keep thinking about it, it’s an embarrassment to the team and a minus for me. I have to show it in my results,” he said. “In a way, it’s also not good for my teammates who were selected to the national team. I think throwing well in a game is a plus for my teammates and for my teammates on the national team. We have to make sure we don’t talk about it in the future.”

KIA officials and fellow players sympathized with Lee’s pain and shared his anger. “My older brothers were also very upset. KT’s Ko Young-pyo and (I) Sung-beom said good things, saying, ‘It will be an experience to become a bigger player,'” Lee said.

For now, Lee will put the Asian Games behind him and dedicate himself to KIA. The team has an urgent fall baseball schedule. “It’s already in the past. I have to take care of the psychological part. I need to control my mind. I will focus on the remaining games,” Lee said emphatically.
The successor to Yang Hyun-jong, 35, has grown and matured immensely in the maelstrom of controversy. It’s been an unforgettable week for Lee.

“SON Captain Legend” has joined the ranks! ‘Composing a line-up side by side’ Tottenham – Arsenal North London Derby Integrated Best 11

Football content production company ‘stn.daily’ has selected the best 11 Tottenham Hotspur-Arsenal North London derbies since 1992.

The Tottenham-Arsenal North London Derby combined best 11 since 1992 featured Thierry Henry and Harry Kane in the attack.레고토토

The flanks were formed by Son Heung-min and Gareth Bale, while Patrick Vieira and Cesc Fabregas formed the midfield.

The defense was made up of Ashley Cole, Tony Adams, Sol Campbell, and Kyle Walker, with David Seaman in goal.

One name that stands out is Son Heung-min. Kane, Bale, Walker, and Campbell made the list for Tottenham.

Heung-min put in a stellar performance against Arsenal in the sixth round of the English Premier League (EPL) this season.

He rattled the Arsenal net in the second minute of the first half, only to have it ruled out for offside. Then, in the 22nd minute, a brilliant pass from the right flank found Johnson with a threatening shot that was saved by the goalkeeper.

Son Heung-min, however, responded. He opened the scoring in the 42nd minute with a deft touch to deflect a pass from James Maddison after a scramble in the box. It was his fourth goal in the EPL this season.

The scoring didn’t stop there. In the 10th minute of the second half, Madsen broke through after pressing and stealing the ball from Jorginho. He played a pass to Son Heung-min, who was one-on-one with the goalkeeper. It was the fifth goal of the EPL.

Son also spoke about his determination to win the North London derby against Arsenal.

“I’m sure Arsenal don’t want to play Tottenham right now,” he said.

“We know what the North London derby means to the team, the fans, and the players. It’s going to be a really tough game, but everyone at Tottenham is running and fighting for each other,” he said, adding that the team’s cohesion and unity is unparalleled.

As it turned out, Son made his presence felt against Arsenal with a multi-goal performance.

It’s important to note that Son started the North London derby against Arsenal as a frontline striker.

Tottenham were criticized for having a hole in their attack ahead of the start of the season. This was due to the departure of Harry Kane.

Kane parted ways with Tottenham before the start of the season. He decided that a move to a new club was the answer to fulfill his title ambitions.

Tottenham even offered him a huge weekly wage to keep him, as well as a post-playing career as a coach and ambassador.

However, Kane was stubborn in his desire to leave, so Tottenham decided to go for a transfer fee.

Bayern Munich and Tottenham were unable to agree on a fee, but once they did, the transfer accelerated.

Bayern Munich offered more than €100 million ($145.8 billion) for Kane, and the deal was finalized when Tottenham accepted the offer.

Tottenham had a problem without Kane. They tried to fill in for him, but it didn’t work.

Son Heung-min seems to be the answer to Spurs’ problems. In addition to the North London derby against Arsenal, he scored a hat trick as a frontline striker in the fourth round tie against Burnley.

Son Heung-min started the fourth round match against Burnley as a frontline striker.

With Tottenham trailing 1-0 in the 16th minute, Heung-min equalized after a passing play with Manor Solomon that saw the goalkeeper come out of his line of defense and find space, with a sensational chip shot.

Then came Son’s show. In the 19th minute of the second half, after receiving a pass from Solomon, Heung-min surged forward and scored his team’s fourth goal and his second of the season with a direct shot.

Heung-min’s scoring streak didn’t stop there. In the 22nd minute of the second half, he found space behind the Burnley defense and found the back of the net again after receiving a pass from Foro. It was his first hat-trick of the season.

It was the fourth hat-trick of his career. After Southampton (2020/21), Aston Villa (2021/22), and Leicester City (2022/23), this is the fourth time he has scored against Burnley this season.

As Son continues to perform up front, manager Enze Postecoglou has given off the vibe that he plans to continue utilizing the guarantee check.

Postecoglou said: “Heung-min was outstanding as a leader and as a player. Tottenham now have him in the number nine position and he is working really hard. He puts the team first.”

He added: “He is amazing. He has the qualities to solve problems,” he added, applauding his performance as a frontline striker.

Meanwhile, Son’s multi-goal performance in the North London derby against Arsenal left him just one goal shy of 200 for his European career.

He also moved into sole possession of second place in the EPL scoring charts with five goals this season, behind only Elling Holland.

Son’s multi-goal performance against Arsenal also gave him 150 career goals in a Tottenham shirt.

“I’m very proud to have scored 150 goals for Tottenham with the fans, it’s a special milestone. The most important thing today is that we showed unity and fight as a team. We have a lot to look forward to. We are ready to come back stronger and do more together next week.”

He was also rewarded for his multi-goal performance against Arsenal by being named in the EPL and BBC’s Best 11.
