Will Hwang Sun-Hong show a refreshing performance in the final match against Myanmar?
Korea and Myanmar will face off in the third round of Group B of the 2024 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) U23 Asian Cup qualifiers held at the Changwon Football Center at 8 p.m. on the 11th. Korea won 1-0 against Kyrgyzstan in the second game, securing 3 points and taking first place in the group.
메이저사이트Korea did not show satisfactory performance in previous games. In the first match against Qatar, they were defeated 0-2 and showed a helpless appearance. It was fortunate that Qatar was confirmed to advance to the finals as the host country, so the rankings were not affected. A cloud could have been cast over the U23 Asian Cup finals, which also serve as Olympic qualifiers.
In the subsequent match against Kyrgyzstan, the result was achieved, but the content was still difficult to obtain a passing grade. Korea won the victory by holding on to Hong Yun-sang’s first goal in the 3rd minute of the first half. However, despite the early first goal, no additional goals were scored. Rather, in the second half, there was a moment when the opponent was pushed back in order to score an equalizer. Even though Lee Hyun-joo, Uhm Seong-seong, and Heo Yul were brought in in the second half to aim for an additional goal, they were unable to create a scoring opportunity.
In the upcoming match against Myanmar, we need to kill two birds with one stone: results and content. Myanmar lost 0-6 against Qatar in the second game. Qatar, which captured Korea, put on a firepower show against Myanmar and showed the difference in level. Korea must not end with at least one goal. Coach Hwang Seon-hong also emphasized the need for additional goals, saying after the Kyrgyz Star game, “One goal is disappointing.”
In terms of power, it is already overwhelming. Hwang Seon-hong includes players such as Uhm Ji-seong, Heo Yul (Gwangju FC), and Hong Yun-sang (Pohang Steelers), who are very active in the K-League, as well as Jeong Sang-bin (Minnesota United), Lee Hyun-joo (Wiesbaden), and Kwon Hyuk-gyu (Busan I’Park), who have played on the European stage. , there are overseas teams currently playing. Myanmar is an underdog ranked 160th in the FIFA rankings of the national team A.
In the last game held at home, Hwang Seon-hong has to prove himself. To advance to the Paris Olympics, you must place in the top three at the finals stage to receive a ticket to the finals. As Qatar, a competing team to participate in the Olympics, achieved a landslide victory, Hwang Seon-Hong must also show a clear victory in order to have high hopes for the finals.
