The U20 national team, led by coach Kim Eun-jung, played the second leg of the 2023 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) U20 Asian Cup Group C group stage against Jordan at the JAR Stadium in Tashkent, Uzbekistan at 7 pm on the 5th (Korean time) and won 2-0.
Kim Eun-joong, who previously won 4-0 in the first match against Oman, maintained first place in the group with two consecutive wins and crossed the ninth division line to the quarterfinals.
On the other hand, Jordan, who won their first match against Tajikistan 2-0, lost to Korea and became 1-1.
In the 21st minute of the first half, the ‘captain’ Lee Seung-won, who is good at using both feet, predicted the opponent’s defensive moves, evaded them well, and attempted a mid-range shot. The ball went over the goal by a single stroke.
This time, ‘No. 10’ Bae Jun-ho showed off his tiger claws. After receiving an amazing through pass in the 29th minute of the first half, he aimed for the opening goal from the left side of the box. However, the goalkeeper came out first and handled the ball. One minute later, Lee Yeongjun hit a turning shot. This time, it was blocked by the goalkeeper’s save.
Jordan, who blocked Korea’s attack well, went on a counterattack to score. In the 37th minute of the first half, he looked for a shooting opportunity in the situation of the Korean goal line, but his finishing ability was noticeably poor.
Jordan unknowingly took his time. In the 39th minute of the first half, Schiff Adin Darwish fell in a counterattack situation and sat on the ground for a while. He showed an expression that there was something wrong with his body, but after a while, he woke up as if it was like that.
Korea scored two goals in the second half.
Bae Jun-ho scored the opening goal in the 9th minute of the second half. I didn’t miss the opponent’s mistake. The opposing goalkeeper came forward and handled the ball. However, the ball hit the defense, deflected, and headed for Bae Jun-ho. The goalkeeper comes out and the goal is empty. Bae Joon-ho shook Jordan’s net with a quick mid-range shot.
Riding the atmosphere, Korea aimed for an additional goal. In the 26th minute of the second half, Kang Seong-jin took off three opponents one after another with his personal skill, dragged the ball to the front of the arc, and scored the team’s second goal with a powerful shot.
