On the 6th, Seoul E-Land made the K-League 2 (Part 2) match with Gyeongnam into a ‘place of global festival’. He left early at the 2023 Saemangeum World Scout Jamboree event and presented special memories, such as providing an opportunity to experience sports culture to the British scout delegation who visited Mokdong Sports Complex in Seoul that day. It was recorded as a meaningful day in many ways, with 6,471 people, the largest number of spectators in the club’s history.
On this special day, the E-Land team could not smile as widely as they did. E-Land, coached by Park Choong-gyun, played a tight 50-50 ball possession game with Gyeongnam, but was pushed back in the battle for goal decision. In the 20th, 25th and 5th minutes of the second half, Ki-jong Seol Hyun-jin conceded consecutive goals. In the 42nd minute of the second half, Lee Kang-hee’s own goal belatedly pursued, but failed to close the gap and lost 1-2. I bowed my head again at the recent repeating pattern.스포츠토토
E-Land’s streak of winless matches has increased to 7 matches (3 draws and 4 losses), including against Gyeongnam. They drew with Jeonnam, Cheonan City and Chungnam Asan, and lost to Anyang, Gimpo, Chungbuk Cheongju and Gyeongnam. E-Land, which once stayed in 7th place and looked forward to advancing to the playoffs, fell to 11th place with 7 wins, 5 draws and 11 losses (23 points). The difference between Anyang (38 points) and 5th place in the playoff margin widened to 15 points.
Experts diagnose that E-Land seems to have lost the color it showed at the beginning of the season after Park took over. E-Land placed a fast-footed player on the side and had fun with a fast-tempo side attack. Honan, a tall striker, finished from the front. E-Land’s performance in May was 4 wins and 1 draw, and there was no big difference with the team in the lead. However, in the summer, the speed of flanking attacks has noticeably slowed down. Experts point out that ‘play without purpose is frequent’.
E-Land missed the victory in the Jeonnam expedition in June due to a goal conceded in extra time. In the Chungbuk Cheongju expedition in July, the opponent had a golden opportunity to escape a draw by sending off the opponent in the 30th minute and scoring the first goal in the 32nd minute, but lost consecutively in the second half. In the last 7 games, 9 out of 10 goals were recorded in the second half, and the score against expected goals over the same period was 0.45, the lowest among 13 teams. It can be seen that the concentration in the front and the concentration in the second half fell at the same time. In July, with the return of long-term injured players like Tsubasa, E-Land’s squad operation range has become wider, but it feels like the power has weakened. The continued draw has no choice but to affect the atmosphere in the locker room.
Coach Park changed tactics, strategy, and player composition during the draw period. Even the claim was replaced. Vice-captain Lee Sang-min wore the armband. I’ve used all the moves I can to win 1, but so far I haven’t reaped the effect. Coach Park revealed his will to continue challenging without giving up. E-Land is about to play two consecutive games with leader Gimcheon and third place Busan.
