“We are not out of the group yet. We will do our best to win against Gambia.”

Kim Yong-hak (20-Portimonense) spoke after his country’s 2-2 draw with Honduras in their second Group F match of the FIFA U-20 World Cup Argentina 2023 at the Mendoza Stadium in Mendoza, Argentina on Saturday (June 26). 메이저사이트

On the day, Kim Yong-hak was in fine form in the first half, creating several threatening chances before scoring the winner in the 13th minute of the second half to spark a comeback from a 0-2 deficit. From then on, he moved wide in the attacking third and spearheaded the attack. It was another top-notch performance, following his assist against France on Sept. 23 after creating a perfect counterattack opportunity.

However, Kim Yong-hak said, “It’s disappointing that we didn’t get a result despite our numerical superiority. Before the game, we targeted the space behind the opponent’s side a lot, and this was the main factor, but the overall lack of concentration in the final passing and shooting situations was the reason why we didn’t win,” he said, putting his individual performance aside.

The draw leaves South Korea in second place in Group F (W1 D1 L4). With a draw or better in their final group game against Gambia on Sept. 29, they will qualify for the Round of 16 in second place. If they lose and drop to third place, the other group results will determine the round of 16. “We are not out of the group yet,” said Kim Yong-hak. We will do our best to win against Gambia,” said Kim Yong-hak.
