Goalkeeper Kim Jun-hong was shown a yellow card for unnecessary stalling.
Kim Eun-joong’s South Korea Under-20 football team drew 2-2 with Honduras in their second Group F match of the FIFA U20 World Cup 2023 at the Mendoza Stadium in Argentina on 26 June at 6:00 a.m. KST.
South Korea lined up in a 4-5-1 formation. Kim Jun-hong was in goal, while Park Chang-woo, Choi Seok-hyun, Kim Ji-su and Bae Seo-joon formed the defence. The midfield consisted of Kim Yong-hak, Lee Seung-won, Bae Jun-ho, Kang Sung-jin, and Kang Sang-yoon, with Lee Young-jun starting up top.
Korea and Honduras battled back and forth. Korea conceded two early goals and came back with two goals in the second half to make it 2-2. Both teams were desperate for a win, so the game went back and forth until the final minutes. The pattern was repeated: Korea would take a shot and Honduras would counterattack and take a shot.토토사이트
Eight minutes of second-half stoppage time were awarded. South Korea scored an extra goal to win 3-2, giving them two wins and a spot in the round of 16. They had a relatively easy time of it in the third game against Gambia.
However, Kim Jun-hong was warned by the referee for taking too much time while preparing for a goal kick. It was a difficult call to understand. South Korea had not taken the lead and the forwards were determined to score more goals. On top of that, Kim Jun-hong was cautioned in the first game, so he would not be able to play in the third game due to accumulated cautions.
A butterfly effect ensued. Kim Jun-hong’s restarted goal kick led to a Honduran counterattack shortly afterwards. At this point, central defender Choi Seok-hyun made a tough stop on a Honduran counterattack. The referee, who had seen the incident in front of him, issued a warning to Choi. Choi, who had already received one caution, was sent off for accumulating cautions. He will not be able to play in Game 3. Coach Kim Eun-joong must have been in deep thought.
