“Rematch” What Jordan hasn’t experienced yet… Hwang Hee-chan from “The Fighting Bull” is coming back!
Jordan has yet to face ‘Bull’ Hwang Hee-chan.
The South Korean national soccer team, led by head coach Jürgen Klinsmann, will face Jordan in the 2023 Asian Cup semifinals of the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Qatar Asian Cup at Ahmad Bin Ali Stadium in Alaiyan, Qatar, at 0 a.m. on the 7th (Korea time).
Indeed, Korea has emerged as a country of fighting spirit. It had one win and two draws in the group league. It got off to an easy start by beating Bahrain 3-1, but in the following two matches, it managed to draw with Jordan 2-2 and Malaysia 3-3 in extra time in the second half, advancing to the round of 16 with difficulty as the second-ranked team in the group.
The round of 16 match against Saudi Arabia was also dramatic. As soon as the second half started, the team gave the Saudi Arabian team the first goal, and the team was leading 0-1. Korea went into extra time as Cho Kyu-sung’s golden header goal scored at the ninth minute of extra time in the second half. The penalty shootout continued without a match, and the Saudi kicker was blocked twice by Cho Hyun-woo, advancing to the quarterfinals 4-2.
The match against Australia was another drama. Before the end of the first half, Korea lost another point to Australia and started to fall behind 0-1. However, Korea, which displayed tremendous last-minute power throughout this year’s event, had a chance to score a penalty kick right before the end, and played overtime for the second straight time by balancing the score 1-1. Korea even succeeded in a free kick chance in the first half of overtime, advancing to the semifinals through a 2-1 reversal drama.
It will meet Jordan in the semi-final. It was the first time that Korea faced off against Jordan in the last group match. As Korea struggled against Jordan at the time, Korea’s disappointing performance was under fire. Korea recorded 23 shots but failed to finish in the decision, and Korea, which was upset by 1-2, managed to induce an own goal in the extra time of the second half to draw 2-2.
This time, the situation is different from that time. “Bull” Hwang Hee-chan recovered from injury. Until the second group match, Hwang Hee-chan could not play due to minor injury. He returned after a short period of time due to substitution in the second half of the match against Malaysia, and secured a penalty shootout with his fourth kicker in the match against Saudi Arabia, securing Korea’s advance to the quarterfinals. In the match against Australia, he also played an active role by securing a free kick chance in the first half of extra time as he voluntarily volunteered for a penalty kicker to tie the match with only one minute left before the end of the match. 헤라카지노
As Hwang has demonstrated his temperament as an adventurer, he is expected to display stellar performance at the match against Jordan. Only six players have scored more than Hwang, who scored 10 goals in the Premier League this season. “In terms of current performances, no one can be as strong a supporter of Son as Hwang Hee-chan this season. His ability to grow up under the spotlight in the PL has also been reproduced in the Asian Cup,” ESPN said.
