The U-24 national soccer team, led by coach Hwang Seon-hong, is showing off its aggressive attack power at the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games. After scoring 16 points and conceding no goals in Group E of the competition against Kuwait, Thailand, and Bahrain, they defeated Kyrgyzstan 5-1 in the round of 16 and China 2-0 in the quarterfinals.
We are two steps away from our first three-game losing streak. Korea will compete with Uzbekistan to advance to the finals at the Huanglong Sports Center in Hangzhou, China, on the 4th. If they win, the finals will be held at the Hangzhou Olympic Sports Expo Center on the 7th.
Uzbekistan has strengths in physique, strength, and height, as well as solid organizational skills. There is also physical strength. Uzbekistan automatically advanced to the round of 16 after playing only two games against Hong Kong due to the withdrawal of Syria and Afghanistan in the group stage. They defeated Indonesia 1-0 in the round of 16 and Saudi Arabia 2-1 in the quarterfinals. Although we are far ahead in this age group’s head-to-head record with 10 wins, 2 draws, and 2 losses, we cannot let down our guard as we barely won 4-3 in the quarterfinals of the Jakarta-Palembang Asian Games five years ago.
But our style comes first. Jung Woo-young (24, Stuttgart) and Hong Hyun-seok (24, Gent), who are active as ‘middle likers (midfielder + striker)’, are attracting attention. Coach Hwang has emphasized the role of the second line instead of focusing on the ball up front. He wants to be active in penetrating the goal and diagonal attacks from the center and flanks.메이저사이트
Among them, Jung Woo-young led the team to a 9-0 victory over Kuwait with a hat trick in the first game of the group stage, and also scored multiple goals against Kyrgyzstan. Hong Hyun-seok showed off his sense of goal in the second match against Thailand in the group stage (4-0 win), followed by the match against Kyrgyzstan and China. Director Hwang said, “You must have confidence, but be cautious. “It is positive that the offensive line is in good condition,” he said emphatically.
