Shaolin Soccer overwhelms 50,000 home fans with skill…Korea wins 2-0 over China

The men’s national soccer team, seeking a third straight Asian Games title, recorded a 2-0 shutout win over host China. The Koreans overwhelmed a 50,000-strong Chinese crowd that chanted “chayo” (Chinese for “come on”) and the rough-and-tumble style of play known as “Shaolin football.

South Korea’s U-24 football team, led by Hwang Sun-hong, defeated host China 2-0 on Monday in the men’s soccer quarterfinals of the 온라인카지노 Hangzhou 2022 Asian Games. The victory was notable for the team’s injury-free performance against China, who played a rough game throughout.

The Chinese started the game with a foul on defender Park Jin-seop just 13 seconds after the kickoff, making it crucial to score an early goal, especially since there is no video assistant referee (VAR) system at the Asian Games, which can make refereeing decisions more variable.

The Korean national team pushed China hard from the start with Go Young-joon, Cho Young-wook, Song Min-gyu, and Hong Hyun-seok. In the 18th minute, Hwang Jae-won won a free kick outside the penalty box, and Hong Hyun-seok, the kicker, scored a ‘fantasy goal’ with his left foot.

In the 34th minute, Cho Young-wook broke through the defense on the right side and sent in a ground ball cross that the onrushing Song Min-gyu calmly slotted into the back of the net. South Korea continued to pound away at the goal for the next 90 minutes. They were unable to find the back of the net, but kept a clean sheet. China created a crucial goal opportunity just before the end of the first half, but they were unable to finish it.

In the second half, the Chinese players played more physical against our national team, but we managed to finish the game without any injuries. The stands were filled with Chinese fans, who chanted “chayo” (Chinese for “come on”) to encourage the players, but they were unable to overcome Korea’s solid defense.

In the second half, Lee Kang-in (Paris Saint-Germain), Jung Woo-young (Stuttgart), and Uhm Won-sang (Ulsan), who had been waiting on the bench to maintain their fitness, came on. They threatened, but no further goals were scored.

Hwang Sun-hong was dominant from the group stage through the round of 16, scoring 21 goals (1 conceded). South Korea will play Uzbekistan in the quarterfinals at 9 p.m. on April 4 at the same venue.
