Hwang Sun-hong aims for big win against Myanmar…catch both the process and the result
This is a shabby report card recorded by the under-22 (U-22) national soccer team led by head coach Hwang Sun-hong in two Group B matches of the 2024 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) U-23 Asian Cup qualifying round. As the tournament also serves as a regional qualifying round for the 2024 Paris Olympics, both the process and the results should be determined at least for the final match.
South Korea will play the third Group B match against Myanmar at Changwon Football Center on the 12th. South Korea (3·1 win) is ahead of Myanmar (1·1 draw) and Kyrgyzstan (1·1 draw) and will secure tickets to the finals in April next year even if it draws with Myanmar.
South Korea is worried because it failed to bring both content and results in the previous two games. The match against Qatar was very serious. While the opponent scored two goals with five effective shots, South Korea only attempted two effective shots. There was no flashy scene or organic play based on organizational power. Kyrgyzstan was also frustrated. Hong Yoon-sang scored the first winning goal in the third minute of the first half, but managed to keep the lead by one point, let alone an additional goal amid the tight flow.바카라사이트
The Asian counterparts who met Korea in the past seemed to be intimidated. But this time, there was no such appearance at all. Rather, he attacked with the spirit of “Let’s catch Korea.” South Korea, which has lost its pride, should turn the mood around with a great victory over Myanmar.
Myanmar’s advance to the 2013 finals ( elimination from the group league) at the U-23 Asian Cup is considered the weakest team ever. The team suffered a 0-6 defeat against Qatar on the 9th. If South Korea struggles with Myanmar and repeats a similar pattern to the Qatar-Kyrgyzstan match, the outlook will be even darker.
Vietnam, Japan, and Uzbekistan, which will meet with South Korea in next year’s tournament finals, raised the atmosphere by performing a cool firepower show to their opponents. South Korea, which aims to win the U-23 Asian Cup and recapture its first medal in 12 years in the Paris Olympics finals, should turn around little by little even now.
