Kim Eun-joong, coach of the U20 national soccer team, recalled the match against Honduras.
The Korean national under-20 (U20) soccer team led by coach Kim Eun-joong lost 2-2 to Honduras in the second leg of the 2023 FIFA U20 World Cup Group F group stage held at Mendoza Stadium in Argentina at 6 am (Korean time) on the 26th. It was tied.메이저사이트
Korea was dragged away with a penalty kick (PK) in the early hours. A variable soon occurred. David Luiz, who scored the opening goal, hit Bae Seo-joon with his hand and was sent off. Despite having a numerical advantage, Korea could not lead the game. Rather, they conceded an extra run early in the second half.
Manager Kim Eun-joong changed the offense by using a replacement card. Kim Yong-hak scored a comeback goal with a left-footed shot, and Park Seung-ho equalized with a header shot. South Korea, which had previously beaten France 2-1 in the first match, finished second in the group with one win and one draw.
Manager Kim Eun-joong said in an interview with the Korea Football Association (KFA), “We had a numerical advantage, but it was difficult to score goals because the Honduras players were all down on the defense. He was also restless on good occasions. I think that’s why he couldn’t score more goals.”
Park Seung-ho, who came on as a substitute in the second half, was injured shortly after scoring the valuable equalizer. In the end, it was replaced again. Director Kim Eun-joong said, “Park Seung-ho was injured unexpectedly. You should see the status. I will concentrate on preparing for the next game 3 because I have other resources.”
The opponent for the third match is Gambia, who is ranked first in Group F. Korea and Gambia face off on the 29th. Coach Kim said, “We have to pour out more than 100% until the match against Gambia. Recovery is the most important. After recovering well, I will pour in the game against Gambia.”
