Cho Young-wook + Ko Young-jun two tops’ Hwang Seon-hong-ho announces starting list for Kuwait match

Hwang Seon-hong, who is trying to win the Asian Games for the third time in a row, revealed the players who will play in the first match against Kuwait.

The Asian Games national team led by coach Hwang Sun-hong will play the first match of Group E of the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games men’s soccer group stage against Kuwait at Jinhua Sports Center Stadium in Jinhua, China at 8:30 pm on the 19th (Korean time).

Hwang Seon-hong, who is attempting to win three times in a row for the first time in the history of the competition, is determined to lift the mood by winning against Kuwait. Ace Lee Kang-in joined on the 21st at the request of his team Paris Saint-Germain (PSG), and Hwang Seon-hong-ho presented an elite member who can operate in a 4-4-2 formation. Gwang-yeon Lee will guard the goal, and Jae-won Hwang, Han-beom Lee, Jin-seop Park, and Gyu-hyeon Park will take charge of defense. The midfield consists of Baek Seung-ho, Jeong Ho-yeon, Eom Won-sang, and Jeong Woo-young. At the front line, Cho Young-wook and Ko Young-jun will play as top two and aim to score.스포츠토토

Kuwait faces 5-2-3. Dari Alotaivi wears goalkeeper gloves. Youssef Al-Quan, Khaled Al-Fadli, Mohsen Gharib, Sultan Al-Farrah and Mohamed Alashed secure the back door as the back five. Fahad Al-Fadli and Bader Jamal make up the midfield, while Salman Mohammed, Taral Al-Quaisi, and Fahad Alasmi form the front three.

After the Kuwait game, Korea will play the second and third games against Thailand and Bahrain to decide whether to advance to the round of 16. On this day, before the game against Kuwait, Thailand and Bahrain played at the same venue. In a tense situation, Thailand scored an equalizer and the game ended in a 1-1 draw. Victory against Kuwait became more important.

Director Hwang Seon-hong plans to fill Lee Kang-in’s gap with two top players, Jo Young-wook and Ko Young-jun, and two side resources, Jung Woo-young and Eom Won-sang. They are all showing good performances for their teams, so hot attacking soccer is expected.

In past competitions, only four countries have recorded two consecutive wins in soccer: Taiwan (1954, 1958), Myanmar (1966, 1970), Iran (1998, 2002), and South Korea (2014, 2018). If Hwang Seon-hong wins the gold medal in this competition, he will become the first country in history to record three consecutive wins. Attention is focused on whether Hwang Seon-hong can defeat Kuwait in his first game and take a powerful step towards the first three consecutive wins in history.
