The men’s national soccer team at the Asian Games, led by head coach Hwang Sun-hong, is playing the quarterfinals against China at the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games at Huanglong Sports Center in Hangzhou, China, on the 1st (Korea time). He took a 1-0 lead in the 18th minute of the first half.
Coach Hwang excluded Lee Kang-in (Paris Saint-Germain) and Jung Woo-young (Stuttgart) from the starting lineup. Ko Young-joon (Pohang Steelers) was filled in Lee Kang-in’s position, and Jung Woo-young’s vacancy was filled with Song Min-gyu, who made his first start.
The Huanglong Sports Center here is like China’s home stadium. The stadium has 50,1971 seats. It’s not sold out, but the enthusiasm for China is great. As soon as the national anthem was over before the game, jeers poured out.
However, when Hong Hyun-seok scored the first goal in the 18th minute of the first half, the stadium quickly fell silent. Hong Hyun-seok penetrated the right side of the goal with a perfect left-footed kick from the right side of the penalty box. Chinese spectators, who were cheering and booing, were silent in unison.
