“We are not out of the group stage yet. I will do my best to win against the Gambia.”
Kim Yong-hak (20-Portimonense) said this shortly after South Korea’s 2-2 draw with Honduras in their second Group F match at the FIFA U-20 World Cup Argentina 2023 at the Mendoza Stadium in Mendoza, Argentina, on 26 June.
Kim Yong-hak was in fine form on the day, creating several threatening chances in the first half before scoring the winner in the 13th minute of the second half to spark a comeback from a 0-2 deficit. From then on, he moved widely in the attacking third, spearheading the attack. It was another top-notch performance, following on from his assist against France on the 23rd, when he created the perfect counter-attack opportunity.토토사이트
However, Kim Yong-hak said, “It’s disappointing that we didn’t get a result despite our numerical superiority. Before the game, we aimed for a lot of space in the back of the opponent’s side, which was the main factor, but the overall lack of concentration in the final passing and shooting situations was the reason why we didn’t win,” he said, putting his individual performance aside.
The draw leaves South Korea in second place in Group F (W1 D1 L4). A draw or better in their final group game against Gambia on the 29th will see them qualify for the round of 16 in second place. If they lose and drop to third place, the other group results will determine their place in the round of 16. “We are not out of the group yet,” said Kim Yong-hak. We will do our best to win against Gambia,” said Kim Yong-hak.
