Hwang Seon-hong’s answer to the harsh assessment of the 35% chance of winning was ‘9 to 0’.메이저사이트

In the first match of Group E of the Asian Games group stage between Kuwait and Hangzhou held at Jinhua Stadium in Jinhua, Zhejiang, China on the 19th, the Asian Games national team scored a hat trick by Woo-young Jeong (Stuttgart), a multi-goal by Young-wook Cho (Gimcheon), Seung-ho Baek (Jeonbuk) and Won-sang Eom (Ulsan). ) Park Jae-yong (Jeonbuk) won 9-0 thanks to Ahn Jae-jun (Bucheon)’s relay goal.

This is Korea’s most goals in a single game at the Asian Games since they defeated Nepal 11-0 in the group stage of the 1994 Hiroshima Asian Games. The first major win by more than 9 goals in 29 years. The hero against Nepal became the coach and led the team to a huge victory against Kuwait. Coach ‘Stork’ Hwang, who was Korea’s representative striker, showed off his peak skills by scoring a total of 8 goals alone, 5 goals in the first half and 3 goals in the second half, against Nepal in the team led by coach Anatoly Byshevets at the time.

Before Hwang Seon-hong wrote a new history, the team’s evaluation was not very good and expectations were low. This was due to the performance and results shown by Hwang Seon-hong from last year’s Asian U-23 Championship. He selected a player with a history of drunk driving and then withdrew it when controversy arose, which also stirred up public opinion.

Gangwon CEO Kim Byeong-ji, who shared the 2002 Korea-Japan World Cup semifinals legend with Coach Hwang, said in a media interview published on the day of the Kuwait game, “Hwang Seon-hong’s chance of winning is about 35% to 40%.” He thought it was around 25%, but he kindly explained that he added 10% considering the motivation of the players.

The team, which was not expected to have a high probability of winning, responded with a refreshing victory. Starting with Jung Woo-young’s first goal in the 3rd minute of the first half, four goals were scored in the first half alone. Kuwait’s mentality collapsed every time Korea scored. He threw the water bottle in his hand and took out his anger on the unfortunate water bottle. The national team did not relax and went even further in the second half, scoring 5 more goals. Chants of “Jjayo” rang out from the stands, as if cheering for Kuwait, which had become the absolute underdog.

Coach Hwang, who expressed his joy by clenching his fists during the game, said, “This is the first of seven shots. A big win is a good feeling, but it can be poisonous. We should treat it as a non-existent game and forget about it quickly,” and calmly hunted for the gold medal with a long breath. He emphasized that we must take action. It is remembered that the Hiroshima Asian Games team in which coach Hwang played was unable to maintain the winning momentum against Nepal until the end, losing 0-1 to Uzbekistan in the semifinals and losing to Kuwait in the 3rd and 4th place match, finishing in 4th place. Coach Hwang sincerely hopes that the players will not fall into the ‘trap of winning the first game’.

The national team, which has risen to first place in its group, is aiming for two consecutive wins and an early confirmation of the round of 16 tournament against Thailand at the same stadium on the 21st. Thailand drew 1-1 with Bahrain in the first game.
