It is expected to be a ‘place of opportunity’.
토스카지노Daegu FC will play a friendly match against Japan’s Sagandos at DGB Daegu Bank Park on the 8th. The game will utilize the A-Match break and will feature players who have not played much in the past.
“We have a lot of injuries,” said Daegu head coach Choi Won-kwon. The players who are at risk may not play full-time, but they will play a little bit to get a feel for the game.”
Currently, Daegu has a lot of injuries. ‘King of Daepak’ Sejingya has a fractured rib, and goalkeeper Oh Seung-hoon is resting after surgery to remove a lump. Defender Kim Jin-hyuk also suffered a minor shoulder injury during the last league match against Gangwon FC. He will not be able to play at full strength.
Nevertheless, Choi said, “The fans are coming, so we can’t waste time.”
Daegu is sitting on the margins of the K League 1 Final A (1-6th). They have won two consecutive games against Jeju United (1-0) and Gangwon (1-0). Two consecutive clean sheets and a one-goal lead means a lot. This is a big boost for the squad before the break.
They want to keep the momentum going. “I think it will be a rebounding force for us to move forward,” Choi said.

The friendly against Sagandos is an “opportunity” for both the team and individuals. Even though the team will be playing with only 1.5 full squads, the players on the field will have a chance to showcase themselves. “I always feel sorry for the players who don’t get to play,” Choi said. This time, they have to show their competitiveness. I hope they do well.”
For the team, it’s a chance to find resources to fill the void left by injuries to their main players. If the candidates step up, the team will be able to compete in the final four matches before the final round.
Choi will be away for a while. He will leave for Spain on the morning of the 8th to attend a P-level coaching course. The bench will be manned by the coaching staff.
