The second-string competition is in full swing.
The biggest strength of Hwang Sun-hong’s Asian Games men’s soccer team is its diverse and nearly saturated second line. The team has two frontline strikers in Ahn Jae-joon (Bucheon FC) and Park Jae-yong (Jeonbuk Hyundai), and nine midfielders.
With the exception of Baek Seung-ho (Jeonbuk) and Jeong Ho-yeon (Gwangju FC), who are effectively third-stringers, the remaining seven are second-stringers. Cho Young-wook (Gimcheon Commerce), who can also play up front as a zero-top, played more as a flanker.
In Games 1 and 2, their destructive offense shone through. Their organic movements and constant switching of positions bothered the opposing defense, resulting in 13 goals in two games.
Their styles are also different. First, Jung Woo-young (Stuttgart) and Uhm Won-sang (Ulsan Hyundai) use their speed to their advantage. Their quickness and instantaneous speed make it difficult for opponents to chase them down once they start to break through.
Cho Young-wook and Ko Young-joon (Pohang Steelers) are good at off-the-ball movement and link-up play. Cho Young-wook is good enough to drop down to the second line and receive the ball even from zero top. Ko is not a typical playmaker, but he has the ability to deceive opponents with his quick movements and find space behind the defense.
When they mix and match and move freely in the second line, opposing defenses are bound to be confused. Hong Hyun-seok (KAA Hent) is another resource who is not blessed with speed, but his ball-keeping and accurate passing with a wide range of vision are his strengths.
온라인카지노Additionally, Song Min-kyu (Jeonbuk), who is back on track after recovering from injury, will also be waiting to start Game 3. Song has been focusing on his recovery from a muscle injury. He is expected to play in Game 3. Song Min-kyu isn’t a speedy flanker. His strengths lie in his powerful dribbling and rhythmic breakthroughs. He’s good at solving problems and one-on-one. He is the only second-string option for Hwang Seon-Hong Ho. Not to mention the late arrival of Lee Kang-in (Paris Saint-Germain). His creative passing and accurate crosses make him an indispensable attacking option for Hwang.
Song Min-kyu and Lee Kang-in are two players who have not played a single minute in the two matches. They will get some minutes in Game 3 to check their chemistry and fitness with their teammates. Hwang Seon-hong’s battle for the No. 2 spot has begun in earnest.
