Baek Seung-ho (Jeonbuk Hyundai) paid off the debt with a gold medal.
The South Korean Under-24 Football Team, led by Hwang Sun-hong, won the gold medal with a 2-1 victory over Japan in the final of the Hangzhou 2022 Asian Games at the Huanglong Sports Center Stadium in Hangzhou, China, on Sunday at 9 p.m. ET.
South Korea won its third consecutive Asian Games title in Hangzhou, a feat no other country has accomplished. After winning gold in Incheon in 2014 and Palembang in Jakarta in 2018, South Korea has now won three consecutive gold medals to remain the dominant force in Asia.
Like the last time in Jakarta, the final match was between Korea and Japan. The Asian Games team, coached by Kim Hak-bum, won the final against Japan 2-1 thanks to back-to-back goals from Lee Seung-woo (Suwon FC) and Hwang Hee-chan (Wolverhampton). Once again, South Korea came from behind to beat their nemesis Japan 2-1.
Baek Seung-ho was a consistent starter and the engine of the midfield. He set up the attack with his passing ability from the back and joined the attack with his long-range kicking ability.
However, mistakes were made. In the round of 16 against Kyrgyzstan, he lost the ball and gave away a goal, and against China, he made a mistake in passing that led to a goal. In the fourth game against Uzbekistan, he was involved in another goal as he conceded a free kick due to a foul.
After the Uzbekistan game, Baek Seung-ho said, “They keep saying it was a mistake, but I want to ask them the opposite, what should I do? I worked hard and that’s what happened. What I want to say is that I want you to believe in me and support me until the end.” He also expressed his regret.
Baek Seung-ho remained in the starting lineup against Japan.
South Korea conceded in the first minute of the match. The right side of the defense was breached and the ball was played into the box, where Uchino slotted it home with his right foot to give Japan the lead. Baek Seung-ho applauded after the goal and gestured for his players to play calmly.카지노
Paik was as fierce as ever. He didn’t back down from contested situations and even got involved in the box after the goal.
South Korea equalized in the 26th minute when Jung Woo-young headed in a cross from Hwang Jae-won. The equalizer gave South Korea momentum and took control of the game. In the 11th minute of the second half, Cho Young-wook scored in a chaotic situation in the box to complete the comeback.
In the end, Korea held on to win the gold medal. Baek Seung-ho’s request for support was for a “happy ending.
