GK Yoo Sang-hoon, who was blocked even with his face, saved Gangwon from crisis… Scoreless in Pohang’s intensive fire, escaped Gangwon’s 3rd consecutive loss
Gangwon FC succeeded in escaping from losing streak after hard work.
On the 21st, in the home game against Pohang in the 14th round of ‘Hanawon Q K League 1 2023’ held at the main stadium of Songam Sports Town in Chuncheon, Gangwon drew without conceding thanks to goalkeeper Yoo Sang-hoon’s brilliant performance.
Gangwon didn’t score the goal they expected, but they were satisfied with 1 point after 3 consecutive losses, while Pohang missed the chance to jump to 2nd place in the league.
Gangwon was in a hurry to escape their losing streak, and Pohang expected to leap to second place with the victory that day.
Pohang, which has the upper hand in terms of objective power, rushed Gangwon hard from around the 10th minute after completing the search at the beginning of the first half.
In the 10th minute of the first half, Go Young-Jun struck a decisive chance. It was a precursor to ‘bad luck’. After receiving a pass from Jeka into the back space, he fired a diagonal shot with his right foot, but slightly missed the post of his left goal.
In the 23rd minute, Kim In-seong hit the ground. After breaking down the side, he created a one-on-one situation with the opposing goalkeeper, Yoo Sang-hoon, but his right foot to slightly pass the goalkeeper’s key and shot again missed the goal post.
Pohang did not stop its offensive. In the 25th minute, Oberdan hit a right-footed mid-range shot from a decisive chance, but it was blocked by Yoo Sang-hoon’s super save.
In the 38th minute, Yoo Sang-hoon saved the team from near-death by blocking Baek Seong-dong’s menacing free-kick shot.
Pohang had to finish the first half by hitting the ground in the 42nd minute, even blowing Oberdan’s decisive solo chance into the air.
Pohang continued to threaten Gangwon’s goal in the second half, but it seldom led to a goal and continued to hit the ground.
Gangwon-do counterattacked using intermittent counterattack opportunities, but it only reaffirmed the chronic disease of ‘no player scored a goal’.
In particular, Pohang had a perfect chance after Lee Ho-jae, who was substituted in the 20th minute of the second half, blocked the opponent’s pass miss, but it was a regrettable failure as the shot went straight to the goalkeeper.안전놀이터
Moreover, in the 32nd minute, Yoo Sang-hoon, the goalkeeper of Gangwon’s iron wall, showed a ‘new feat’ by blocking Kim Seung-dae’s ‘goal-like’ shot with his face, which made Pohang’s energy go down.
Suffering from extreme goal ‘misfortune’, Pohang accepted a draw that felt like defeat, while Gangwon, who had steadfastly endured in the face of inferiority in objective power, was satisfied with a draw that felt like victory, displaying a fighting spirit for a counterattack at the last minute.
