Hwang Seon-hong, who won all three matches in the men’s soccer group stage at the Hangzhou Asian Games, continues his hunt for the gold medal.
Korea will play the round of 16 against Kyrgyzstan at Jinhua Sports Center Stadium in Jinhua, China at 8:30 pm (Korean time) on the 27th.
In this tournament, Korea played 3 games over 6 days, scoring a total of 16 goals and not conceding a single goal. Both offense and defense were stable. They won every game in the group stage and continued their 3-game losing streak following the 2014 Incheon and 2018 Jakarta-Palembang competitions.토토사이트
Korea is now entering the full-scale tournament. The opponent in the round of 16 is Kyrgyzstan. Kyrgyzstan recorded 1 win and 2 losses in Group F. After considering goal difference and points scored against Chinese Taipei and Indonesia, they barely placed second in their group and advanced to the round of 16.
Objectively, Korea has the upper hand. However, you cannot let your guard down. From now on, the winner will be determined through a tournament, so if you lose, there is no going back. You need to pack your bags right away.
If Korea defeats Kyrgyzstan in the matchup, there is a high possibility that it will face the host country, China, in the quarterfinals. The location will also be moved to Hangzhou, not Jinhua, where the 4 games were played. China will face Qatar in the round of 16, and considering home advantage, they may advance to the quarterfinals.
After the group stage, coach Hwang Seon-hong also said through News 1, “I think the real game will start from now on,” and expressed his determination, “I will prepare well and move forward one step at a time.”
