Whoever our opponent is, we have to win.”
The Korean men’s soccer team will meet host country China in the quarterfinals of the Asian Games. Eom Won-sang (Ulsan Hyundai) remained calm even in a situation where home territory was hot and there were concerns about the home advantage decision.
The Asian Games men’s soccer team, led by coach Hwang Seon-hong, continued its rapid progress toward its third consecutive championship by winning 5-1 against Kyrgyzstan in the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games men’s soccer round of 16 match held at the Jinhua Sports Center in Zhejiang, China, on the 27th.
The explosive scoring power stood out throughout the game. Korea showed explosive power early in the game, with Jung Woo-young scoring one minute after Baek Seung-ho’s penalty kick. Then, with the team trailing 2-1, Jung Woo-young added a point in the second half thanks to a handball foul by the opponent, and soon after, Cho Young-woong and Hong Hyun-seok scored, ending the game with a huge win by four points.레모나토토
Although there were no goals, the performance of Eom Won-sang, who formed the strongest second line with Jung Woo-young (Stuttgart) and Lee Kang-in (Paris Saint-Germain) on this day, also stood out. In particular, when Jung Woo-young scored a header in the first half, his cross from the right side provided a decisive opportunity. After successfully scoring a goal, he was also caught on screen participating in a ceremony with Jung Woo-young.
Eom Won-sang, who met with reporters in the mixed zone after the game, said, “I have no desire to score in this tournament.” He said, “It would be great if everyone could score like today. Not only me but everyone here, Wooyoung, Youngwook, Kangin, (Park) Jaeyong or anyone else, are all players who can score. Just “I hope someone scores another goal,” he said with a laugh.
With Lee Kang-in joining, the second line gained weight. How does Eom Won-sang feel? He said, “Kangin himself is a player who likes to pass, and I am also a player who likes to move.” He added, “I think that with Kangin coming in, if he makes good use of passes and I move better, I think good play will come out.” I expected it.’
Eom Won-sang, who was waiting for the next opponent, China, was resolute. He said, “We have to win every team we face. We must win not only against China but also against all other teams. I’m not particularly worried because it’s China. “I will prepare well for the next game,” he said.
