“The Younger Brothers Lost” U-19 Lee Chang-Won-ho lost 0-2 to China…1 win, 1 draw and 1 loss in the friendly tournament

Before the older brothers, the younger brothers unfortunately knelt down to China.

The U-19 national soccer team, led by new coach Lee Chang-won, lost 0-2 to China in the final match of the four-nation U-19 international friendly in Weinan, China on the 10th.

The U-19 national team, which previously held Vietnam 1-0 after a 1-1 draw with Uzbekistan, finished the tournament with one win, one draw and one loss due to its defeat against China.

Coach Lee Chang-won deployed the 4-2-3-1 tactic to cope with China’s home team. As the offense continued to be tight throughout the game, the balance was not easily broken. Perhaps, Korea saw a change by sending in Yoon Do-young (Daejeon Hana Citizen) and Jin Joon-seo (Incheon University) at the same time during halftime. Jin was a striker who displayed good pace by scoring goals in two consecutive games in this year’s event.

However, the first goal came from China first. The team, which had the first loss at 33 minutes in the second half, tried to catch up with the team, but allowed an additional loss right before the final whistle. It ended up losing 0-2, which was regrettable on the last day of the championship.

The U-19 national team aims to host the AFC U-20 Asian Cup and FIFA U-20 World Cup next year. Qualifiers for the U-20 Asian Cup are scheduled for September.

Coach Lee Chang-won joined the team for the first time last month. Lee Chang-won played for the Jeonnam Dragons and Pohang Steelers, and after retirement, he is a nurturing expert who produced many promising players as the head coach of Pohang Steel High School.

Meanwhile, the older players are also preparing for the match against China. The A team, led by interim coach Kim Do-hoon, will have a final Group C match against China at 8 p.m. on Tuesday at Seoul World Cup Stadium in the second round of Asian qualifiers for the 2026 FIFA North-Central America World Cup. 스포츠토토

Korea already has four wins and one draw to pass the group stage. However, in order to secure one port in the third qualifying round, Korea also needs to win the match against China. “I will bring it to an end. It will be a game that presents the direction of how we prepare and proceed,” interim coach Kim Do-hoon said. “We saw hope and potential against Singapore in the midst of a crisis. The match against China is also that important, so we will focus as much as possible.”
