‘2 goals Eom Won-sang injured OUT’ Hwang Sun-Hong Ho, Chinese ‘Martial Arts’ Concerns ‘Amplified’ before evaluation
Should I play the remaining 2nd leg? Concerns are growing over Hwang Seon-ho, who is playing an away evaluation game in China ahead of the Asian Games in Hangzhou in September. This is because Chinese players who are behind in their skills are blocking Korea’s main players with rough fouls reminiscent of ‘Martial Arts’ and causing injuries. In this state, questions are being raised as to whether the second game scheduled for the 19th should be played, as the possibility of a player injury causing a setback in power rather than the original purpose of adapting to China is increasing.메이저사이트
The under-24 (U-24) Korean soccer team led by head coach Hwang Seon-hong scored a multi-goal from Eom Won-sang and an additional goal from Jung Woo-young in the first round of a friendly match against the Chinese Asian Games national team held at Jinhua Stadium in Zhejiang Province, China on the afternoon of the 15th. won by 1 However, as Eom Won-sang, who scored two goals, was substituted out due to injury, and the Chinese referee and assistant referee neglected the Chinese players’ rough fouls, the Korean players had to suffer from injury throughout the game.

In the end, Um Won-sang, who scored two goals, was replaced in the 21st minute of the second half when his right leg broke due to excessive play by an opponent. Eom Won-sang, who stepped back to the bench, could not hide his painful expression even while taping his injured part. Chinese players’ “fighting soccer” became more vigorous with the enthusiastic support of home fans and the biased judgment of referees.
In the 32nd minute of the first half, national team striker Song Min-gyu collapsed after injuring his left ankle due to the opponent’s rough sliding tackle. He was in pain enough to lie on the field and cover his face with his hands. After Eom Won-sang was substituted out, Jo Young-wook, the striker at the end of the second half, collided with his head due to the opponent’s excessive competition for the aerial ball. Park Jae-yong was also unable to stand up for a while after being tackled while attempting a pass during extra time in the second half.
The judgment of the Chinese referees also played a role in encouraging ‘combat football’ rather than inducing ‘fair play’. Even though it was not a tournament with a title at stake, but an evaluation match, the decision in favor of the local players put a brake on the normal play of Korean players. China’s chasing goal situation would have been nullified if there had been a video review (VAR).

In the 17th minute of the second half when Korea was leading 3-0, when China attempted a cross from the left side of the penalty box, the ball was already off the goal line, but the referee proceeded with the game and it was recognized as Su Haoyang’s header recovery goal. Korean players insisted on an out, but it was not accepted. On this day, referees from China, including chief referee Wang Di, assistant referee Maji, assistant referee Guo Jingtao, and third referee Xingqi, were all judged, and the VAR system was not in operation.
The Chinese players knocked down the Korean players with rough tackles that were out of the normal range, but the only card given to the Chinese players was a yellow card.
Chinese football is infamous for its rough tackles and physical fights. Head coach Hwang Seon-hong, who leads the U-24 national team, was unable to make it to the finals due to an injury to his cruciate ligament in his right knee caused by a rough tackle by the opposing goalkeeper in the 14th minute of the evaluation match against China just before the 1998 World Cup in France. He accompanied the team and hoped to play at least one game, but in the end, he had to return in tears as his injury did not heal.
Hwang Seon-hong, who is concerned about ‘injury bad news’, is ahead of the second game at 8:35 pm on the 19th. He might be better off not playing unless he puts in place thorough precautions to protect his players. The two friendly matches with China this time are the last official convocation and evaluation match ahead of the Asian Games in Hangzhou in September.
Hwang Sun-Hong-ho has not been able to play an official match since the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games were postponed for a year due to the Corona 19 pandemic. He went on an expedition to China with the aim of getting acquainted with the local atmosphere where the Asian Games were held after not being able to choose the right opponent for the evaluation match, but concerns about players’ injuries grew. In May, we cannot rule out the possibility that the strength we have developed through hard times, such as having a three-day convocation training session at Paju NFC and building up our organizational skills, will be wasted in an evaluation match with China.
Meanwhile, the Hangzhou Asian Games will begin on September 19th. Korean football is aiming for a gold medal three times in a row following Incheon in 2014 and Jakarta-Palembang in 2018. The tournament, which was originally scheduled to be held last year, was postponed for a year, so the under-24 national team will participate in this tournament.
