Coach Lee Ki-hyung’s mercenary skills worked.
Seongnam FC defeated Cheonan City FC 2-0 in the 7th round of ‘Hanawon Q K League 2 2023’ held at Tancheon Sports Complex at 1:30 pm on the 16th. With this, Seongnam climbed to 5th place with 3 wins, 2 draws and 2 losses (11 points), along with an undefeated streak of 3 matches (2 wins, 1 draw).
The home team, Seongnam, put forward a 4-1-4-1 formation. Lee Jong-ho, Shim Dong-woon, Lee Jae-won, Kwon Soon-hyung, Chris, Lee Sang-min, Kim Hoon-min, Kang Kang-bin, Patrick, Kim Jin-rae, and Kim Young-kwang scrambled. On the waiting list, Jeong Han-min, Denilson, Yang Si-hoo, Park Sang-hyeok, Jang Hyo-jun, Cho Sung-wook, and Choi Pil-soo waited for their call.
The mercenary technique hit the mark. Jung Han-min and Denilson, who were replaced in the second half, scored goals. In the 31st minute of the second half, Jeong Han-min, who received Kim Jin-rae’s pass, dug into the center and fired a powerful shot from the side of the penalty arc. The ball was sucked into a corner where the goalkeeper couldn’t use his hand. Then, in the 40th minute of the second half, Denilson, who received a pass from Park Sang-hyeok, shot from a distance. The ball flew in a fantastic trajectory and penetrated the corner.
After the game, coach Lee Ki-hyeong said, “I think we played well overall. In the first half, we had difficulties with our opponent attacking with a long ball. They played their role well. I think I played well overall.” 먹튀검증
All substitutes scored and presented 3 points. When asked if it was a planned change, he said, “I planned to give Denilson a chance. When I put it in, I asked for link play or concentration on the ball. I’m not 100% satisfied with that part, but if my body comes up and adapts to the K-League, I will show a good side. I think. Jung Han-min is the player I thought I would use for good football by aiming for space (in the second half) if Lee Jong-ho and Shim Dong-woon do well in the first half.” Regarding the coexistence of Lee Jong-ho and Chris, “I don’t think we can do 100% in every game. Chris only played a few games in the K-League. I will do well. Lee Jong-ho is always sacrificial. He is a player who plays for the team more than himself under any circumstances. I think he will continue to improve in the future.” Coach Lee Ki-hyung is running an undefeated streak in suits. It worked this day too. When asked if it would be valid in the future, he said with a smile, “There will be difficult situations, but at that time it’s something to think about. If the players do well like now and show results, I will wear a suit and come out on the field.”
The Seongnam home game on this day was planned for one person. Hong Si-young is a fan who has supported Seongnam with her parents since she was 5 years old. During her childhood cancer battle, it metastasized to another affected part and continues to fight the disease. The club strengthened its efforts by holding a video of cheering the players and raising funds. In response, “I heard that (Hong) Si-young may not be able to come to the stadium yesterday because she is not feeling well, but fortunately, I heard that she recovered and came to the stadium. I tried to have her take a picture in the locker room, but it was not easy due to various circumstances. I delivered such news, and I thought it would be nice to win for Siyoung. The players also have daughters and sons. I think the concentration has increased in that area.”
