The men’s national soccer team showed off its powerful offense by scoring three goals in the final group match against Bahrain.
We comfortably advanced to the round of 16 by winning all three group games.
Ace Lee Kang-in also played for the first time and worked together, predicting his future performance.
Reporter Kim Ki-beom reports from the local area.
Coach Hwang Seon-hong, who had some time to spare after two consecutive wins in the group stage, tested Lee Kang-in by appointing him as the starter.
Played as an attacking midfielder supporting frontline striker Cho Young-wook.
Lee Kang-in coordinated the attack with several flashing movements.
And he was substituted in the 36th minute of the first half, which was the appointed time.
It was a calculated operation to protect Lee Kang-in, who had just recovered from his injury.
The national team was unable to break through Bahrain’s dense defense throughout the first half, but defender Lee Han-beom scored the first goal in the second half, starting a goal streak.
The second goal, captain Baek Seung-ho’s fantastic mid-range shot, was the highlight.
With Go Young-jun’s key goal, they defeated Bahrain 3-0.
[이강인/아시안게임 축구 국가대표 : “처음 호흡을 맞춰봤는데 앞으로 더 발전해야 하는 점도 많은 것 같고, 다음 경기에 꼭 승리할 수 있도록 노력해야 할 것 같습니다.”]
It was a perfect performance, scoring 16 goals and conceding no goals in 3 group stage games.
With three consecutive wins, they are ranked first in Group E, and coach Hwang Seon-hong warned them not to let down their guard.
[황선홍 : “지금부터가 정말 진짜 승부라고 생각을 하고 있습니다. 우리가 준비를 잘 해서 한발 한발 앞으로 나아가도록 하겠습니다.”]
Hwang Seon-hong’s opponent in the round of 16 the day after tomorrow (27th) is Kyrgyzstan.
They finished second in Group F after North Korea and advanced to the round of 16.
Now the tournament begins where you are eliminated if you lose.
Greater fighting spirit and concentration are required from players.
