Nam Sang-bin, who was ordered to start, put in a spirited performance on the flank of Hwang Sun-hong, who was desperate for a win. He provided a valuable assist with a daringly sharp cross, helping South Korea to victory.
The South Korea U-22 national football team, coached by Hwang Sun-hong, defeated Kyrgyzstan 1-0 in the second round of Group B of the Qatar AFC U-23 카지노사이트 Asian Cup (Asian Qualifier for the 2024 Paris Olympics) Regional Qualifier at the Changwon Football Center on Monday evening at 8:00 p.m. Hong Yun-sang scored in the third minute to give South Korea their first win of the tournament.
Hwang made seven changes for the game compared to the 0-2 loss to Qatar. The most notable change was the inclusion of Jung Sang-bin in the starting lineup after not starting the previous match against Qatar. The decision was made because he had joined the team from Minnesota United and was jet lagged, so he was not used to his full potential against Qatar.
In a meeting with the press, the midfielder, who admitted that he had been struggling with injuries and other issues with his club, reacted immediately to Hwang’s order to start.
After receiving a penetrating pass from right-back Park Chang-woo, he completely destroyed Kyrgyzstan’s right touchline before sending a precise cross to Hong Yun-sang, who was charging down the other side, for the opening goal. The Korean counterattack, which started with Park Chang-woo and ended with Hong Yun-sang, was a lightning bolt from the center of the field, and the cross was particularly significant because it completely disrupted Kyrgyzstan’s game plan, which was to play a five-back defense from the start of the game.
Outside of the scoring situation, there were many other moments of presence. With Kim Shin-jin, the longest striker up front, as a focal point, the Koreans formed a threatening flanking attack alongside Hong Yun-sang. In the 24th minute, he used his trademark daring breakthrough ability to beat a defender and set up a good chance for Kim Shin-jin.
After playing a total of 58 minutes and being substituted for Lee Hyun-joo, Jung Sang-bin proved against Kyrgyzstan that he is still capable of playing for the age-group national team, even if he is going through a rough patch with his club. The match against Kyrgyzstan must have meant a lot to him.
