Rough Shaolin soccer with no answer, is it necessary to play against China?

Cha Beom-geun-ho, ahead of the 1998 World Cup in France, met China for an evaluation match just before leaving the country. At the time, Hwang Seon-hong, the national team’s signature striker, was knocked down by a Chinese player’s rough tackle. He entered the World Cup with an injury, but missed all three group stage matches. His right knee was severely injured and he was unable to run. Having lost their starting goal scorer, Korea suffered a bitter elimination by kneeling against Mexico (1-3 loss) and the Netherlands (0-5 loss).토토사이트

Once again, China’s Shaolin soccer nightmare has erupted. The under-24 national team, led by head coach Hwang Seon-hong, suffered from rough play in the match against China. Taegeuk warriors collapsed in an incomprehensible Shaolin soccer game.

In a friendly match against the Chinese U-24 national team held at Jinhua Stadium in Zhejiang Province, China on the 15th, Korea won 3-1 with Um Won-sang’s multi-goal and Jung Woo-young’s goal. Although he won, it left a bitter aftertaste. Shaolin football played by Chinese players throughout the game made my tongue stick out.

Hwang Seon-Hong-Ho, who shook his head at China’s rough attitude from the beginning, was engulfed in even greater anger in the middle of the second half. Um Won-sang collided with a Chinese player near the touch line. Due to his opponent’s unreasonable movements, he sprained his ankle and complained of pain, and was eventually replaced by Choi Jun.

When you play a game, there will always be some rough play. Looking back at Um Won-sang’s injury scene, it is difficult to say that the Chinese player committed a deliberate foul. However, in a situation where he was behind, he made an excessive motion beyond his athletic ability and caused an injury. In addition, even after Um Won-sang’s injury, Chinese players continued to play rough against attackers such as Jo Young-wook.

We need to carefully examine whether the evaluation match itself with China is meaningful. Of course, you have to persevere and overcome tough competitions to achieve your goals. It can be thought of as a process for winning gold medals at the Asian Games three times in a row. However, as manager Hwang Seon-hong experienced as a player 25 years ago, rough play more than necessary leads to injury. Then and now, China’s Shaolin soccer is still the same.
