Cho Young-wook does it, Hwang Seon-hongho upsets Japan 2-1

The South Korean Asian Games football team, led by Hwang Sun-hong, came from behind to defeat

Japan 2-1 in the final match of the Hangzhou 2022 Asian Games at the Huanglong Sports Center Stadium

in Hangzhou, China on Thursday at 9 p.m. ET.

Lee Kwang-yeon was in goal for Korea, while Park Kyu-hyun, Park Jin-seop, Lee Han-beom, and Hwang

Jae-won formed the defense. Baek Seung-ho and Jung Ho-yeon were in the midfield, while Jung Woo-

young, Lee Kang-in, and Ko Young-joon were in the second line. Cho Young-wook played up front.

Japan pushed hard from the start. Gotaro Uchino opened the scoring in the second minute of the first

half. It was the first time Korea had conceded an early goal in the tournament.

However, in the 27th minute, Jung Woo-young equalized to turn the tide. Hwang Jae-won’s cross from

the right flank was headed home by Jung Woo-young to tie the game at one.

Spurred on by the momentum, Hwang continued to attack the Japanese flank relentlessly, but no further

goals were scored. The first half ended 1-1.

In the 11th minute of the second half, Hwang finally took the lead. Hwang Jae-won’s dribble through pass

was met by Jung Woo-young. The ball bounced off a Japanese defender and Cho Young-wook slid it into

the back of the net with his right foot.

Cho, who was promoted to corporal in October from Gimcheon Commerce, will be discharged early if he

wins a gold medal. 카지노사이트존
