“In the beginning of the game, I put a lot of numbers in the center to destroy the team. However, it was not efficient. I also lost some points. In the second half, I deployed players who were outstanding in technique and possession to proactively stage side attacks. The opposing team asked for short passes and bold shots. They also requested a lot of crosses since it was raining a lot. Then, I got a lucky goal.”

He sensibly recognized the problem and immediately put it into action. Coach Choi Yoon-gyeom’s judgment and decision made Chungbuk Cheongju to a come-from-behind victory. Moon Sang-yoon and Yang Ji-hoon opened the way, and Paulinho, who entered as a substitute, scored two goals quickly.
