The South Korean Asian Games national soccer team, led by head coach Hwang Sun-hong (55), won the final match of the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games against Japan 2-1 at Huanglong Sports Center Stadium in Hangzhou, China, at 9 p.m. on the 7th (Korea time).
As a result, South Korea won its first three consecutive championships following the 2014 Incheon and 2018 Jakarta-Palembang Asian Games, winning its sixth ever title.
The game against Japan was not easy. South Korea was ahead in objective power, but the game flowed strangely, allowing a point in 1 minute and 20 seconds after the start of the game.
However, Jung Woo-young’s golden equalizer in the 27th minute of the first half brought the game to square one early and reversed the game as Cho Young-wook scored a come-from-behind goal in the second half.
Coach Hwang Sun-hong, who attended a press conference after the game, said, “The finals were always difficult,” adding, “The players did their best to win. I think we can be here because we have fans who believed in us. The players also did their best, but I don’t think this result would have been possible without the efforts of the support staff and coaching staff. I take this opportunity to express my gratitude,” he said, expressing his feelings of winning the championship.
Coach Hwang Sun-hong, who had been expressing joy for a while, talked about what he felt in this tournament with a serious attitude.
Coach Hwang Sun-hong said, “Football is getting more and more detailed. I think it should be supported,” he said cautiously. 스포츠토토
“In this competition, both the physical and the analysis parts worked together. The reason why Jung Woo-young is replaced in 60 minutes every game is that his performance is exhausted in 60 minutes. We divide those parts in detail and use them for replacement. “If this part is not supported, I don’t think soccer in the future is easy,” he said.
Coach Hwang said, “I think we should work together to support the players by increasing the number of people in that part. It’s hard to develop Korean soccer if you don’t. “If I prepare in this way, I am confident in the Paris Olympics,” he stressed.
Coach Hwang Sun-hong said, “I think the meaning of a leader is ongoing. It’s not the end. Tomorrow, I will yearn for something again and try to achieve it again. I think the meaning is to go on the right path silently. It’s a time when winning gives. We have to prepare for the Olympic qualifiers,” he added.
