The Korean National Team played Honduras to a 2-2 draw in the second round of the U20 World Cup group stage.
Coach Kim Eun-joong’s team was looking to build on the momentum of their win over France and make it two wins in a row, but it didn’t start well.
In the 17th minute, Choi Hyun-seok’s foul was declared a penalty kick after video review, giving Honduran Ochoa the lead.
But it was Kim Yong-hak who changed the momentum.
Kim Yong-hak, who had scored an assist in the previous match against France with a storming dribble on a counter-attack, was on the attack again, this time at breakneck speed, looking for the Honduran goal.
He also created several good chances with his sharp left-footed shot.
The long-awaited goal came in the 13th minute of the second half.
Lee Yong-hak connected with a left-footed shot from a ball sent in by Lee Young-joon to cut the deficit to one goal, and four minutes later, the equalizer finally arrived.메이저사이트
However, on a great counterattack opportunity in stoppage time, Kim Yong-hak missed the timing of his pass and was left to lament.
After a furious comeback, the team was unable to find an additional goal and eventually drew 2-2 with Honduras.
With France’s second consecutive loss, our team secured at least third place in the group, and will now face Gambia in the final round of 16 on the 29th.
