Hwang In-beom’s ‘A Thousand Gold Strike’ shone… Repentance for bad performances ‘next opportunity’

In the history of Korean soccer, Uruguay, a strong player in South American tradition, has a tough ‘bad relationship’. In the 1990 World Cup in Italy, they lost 0-1 in the group stage, and in the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, where Korea reached the round of 16 for the first time, they failed to advance to the quarterfinals due to being caught 1-2 by Uruguay. In the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, they met in the first leg of the group stage and could not decide the match 0-0. In this match, the roar of Uruguay’s ace Federico Valverde (Real Madrid) knocking down Lee Kang-in (Mallorca) remains a bad look for domestic fans. Uruguay ranks 16th in the FIFA rankings, higher than the 25th national team.The Korean national team met Uruguay again after 4 months, but failed to take revenge. The national team lost 1-2 in an evaluation match against Uruguay held at the Sangam World Cup Stadium in Seoul on the 28th. On the 24th, the national team, which ended in a draw against Colombia in the debut match of new head coach Jurgen Klinsmann (59), promised the next victory with the defeat that day. 토토사이트

On this day, the Sangam World Cup Stadium was packed with fans who had gathered to support the national team even before the game started. The fever of the Qatar World Cup was not yet off. When the game started, 63,952 fans who filled the stadium cheered enthusiastically.

Coach Klinsman set Hwang Eui-jo (FC Seoul) as the one-top player, unlike Cho Kyu-seong (Jeonbuk) who played as a starter in the game against Colombia. ‘Captain’ Son Heung-min (Tottenham), Lee Kang-in, and Lee Jae-seong (Mainz) were located in the second line. In Uruguay, Valverde, who had a funny incident with Lee Kang-in in the last World Cup, wore the captain’s armband, and whenever Valverde appeared on the screen, the crowd booed.
