Hwang Sun-hong scored multiple points for the first time in a long time and headed to the Asian Cup finals. At the end of the second half, Jeon Byung-kwan (Daejeon) and Oh Jae-hyuk (Jeonbuk) scored consecutive goals. However, considering that the opponent is Myanmar, the “weakest” and the frustrating development of the attack on that day, the aftertaste is not pleasant.

The South Korean Olympic soccer team, led by head coach Hwang Sun-hong, defeated Myanmar 3-0 in the third Group B match of the 2024 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) U-23 Asian Cup qualifying round, which also served as the first qualifying round for the Paris Olympics, at Changwon Football Center in Gyeongnam on the 12th.

As a result, South Korea qualified for the finals as the top team in the group. South Korea scored six points with two consecutive wins following a 1-0 victory over Kyrgyzstan. Since Qatar is the host country of the Asian Cup, the 0-2 defeat against Qatar in the first round was not reflected in its performance.

Hwang started with a 4-3-3 formation. Umji Sung (Gwangju)-Kim Shin Jin (FC Seoul)-Jung Sang-bin (Minesota), Lee Hyun-joo (Behenvisbaden), Kwon Hyuk-kyu (Celtic), Baek Sang-hoon (FC Seoul), Lee Tae-seok (FC Seoul), Seo Myung-kwan (Bucheon), Cho Wi-je (Busan), Park Chang-woo (Jeonbuk), and Shin Song-hoon (Kimcheon) started.

South Korea took the lead four minutes into the game. Lee Tae-seok broke through by exchanging one-two passes with Um Ji-sung on the left side and raised a cross to the center. Baek Sang-hoon turned it well with his head and scored the first goal.

South Korea continued to tap Myanmar’s goal using a side cross. In the 8th minute of the first half, Um Ji-sung hit Park Chang-woo’s cross to the head, and in the 18th minute of the first half, Kim Shin-jin connected the cross by Jung Sang-bin with a header right in front of the goal. But both shots went off the net.메이저놀이터

An extra goal was rarely scored. South Korea overwhelmed Myanmar, but it was not enough to open the goal. Baek Sang-hoon’s mid-range shot in the 34th minute of the first half was blocked by the goalkeeper, and Um Ji-sung’s calm left-footed shot from a counterattack opportunity in the 39th minute of the first half narrowly missed the side of the net.

In the second half, the flow continued to be somewhat frustrating. South Korea continued to focus on side attacks using Jung Sang-bin and Um Ji-sung, but failed to break through Myanmar’s dense defense easily. In the 6th minute of the second half, Um Ji-sung’s right-footed kick, which was attempted by hitting from the left side, turned away from the goal by a narrow margin.

Myanmar began to attack gradually. Myanmar scored its first shot of the game with a long-range shot in the 10th minute of the second half, and in the 11th minute of the second half, it faced a threatening opportunity in a free kick. If it hadn’t been missed at the end, it would have led to a loss.

Head coach Hwang Sun-hong pulled out a large number of replacement cards. In the 32nd minute of the second half, Oh Jae-hyuk and Hong Yoon-sang were added, excluding Um Ji-sung and Kim Shin-jin, and in the 35th minute of the second half, Jeon Byeong-kwan was put in place of Lee Hyun-joo.

Finally, the long-awaited extra goal was scored. In the 40th minute of the second half, Jung Sang-bin turned well from the left side of the box and broke through and raised a low and fast cross to the center. Jeon Byeong-gwan fell and finished it accurately, splitting the net.

I even got a wedge bone. In the extra time of the second half, Hong Yoon-sang crossed from the left, and Heo Yul sensibly spilled the ball back. Oh Jae-hyuk calmly caught it and connected it with a left-footed shot to score the third goal. The game ended with South Korea’s 3-0 victory.
