The Under 22 (U-22) national soccer team led by head coach Hwang Sun-hong beat Myanmar 3-0. He secured a ticket to the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) U-23 Asian Cup finals, which was his top priority, but failed to shake off his concerns due to his unsatisfactory performance.
South Korea beat Myanmar 3-0 in the final Group B match of the U-23 Asian Cup qualifying round at Changwon Football Center on the 12th by tying Baek Sang-hoon’s first goal, Jeon Byung-kwan and Oh Jae-hyuk’s additional goals. South Korea, which beat Kyrgyzstan 1-0 earlier, finished the group stage with two consecutive wins and six points. Although it was completely defeated 0-2 by Qatar in its first match, Qatar secured an automatic berth as the host of the U-23 Asian Cup, so the results of the match against Qatar will be excluded from the ranking calculation.
Hwang Sun-hong, who struggled with empty balls in the previous two games, sought a multi-point victory over Myanmar. Lee Hyun-joo (Bisbaden), Jung Sang-bin (Minesota), and Kwon Hyuk-kyu (Celtic) were all selected. Myanmar, ranked 160th in the FIFA rankings, was previously considered the weakest team in Group B, losing 0-6 to Qatar.먹튀검증
Jeon Byung-kwan scored an additional goal in the 35th minute of the second half to seal the victory. News 1
The first goal was scored in the first five minutes, raising expectations for a large-scale score. Left-side defender Lee Tae-seok broke the opponent’s left side and connected the ball with a sensuous header by Baek Sang-hoon in the front to shake the net.
Contrary to expectations, however, South Korea rarely scored. He has always had the upper hand against Myanmar, which is one step below in terms of personal skills, physique, organizational strength, and physical strength, but failed to connect it with a decisive chance.
The long-awaited second goal came in the 35th minute of the second half. Jeon Byung-kwan fell from the front and finished the ground ball cross that Jung Sang-bin raised from the left side with a left-footed shot. Just before the end of the second half, Oh Jae-hyuk added one goal to widen the score.
The three-goal victory was a pleasant result, but it was not a satisfactory score difference considering the difference in performance between the two teams. South Korea has confirmed the task of sharpening its offensive power in the U-23 Asian Cup finals, where the right to participate in the Paris Olympics finals is at stake.
