South Korea won a dramatic overtime victory over Australia and went to the semifinals of the Asian Cup, but Kim Min-jae cannot play against Jordan in the semifinals due to accumulated warnings.
The best combination that can be thought of when even Kim Min-jae breaks away from the defense is the four backs that collaborated with Ulsan HD’s K League 1 victory in the past. Not everyone is on the same team now, but can they get together and save Korean soccer like Marvel’s Avengers, which gathered in the voice of “Captain America”.
The South Korean national soccer team, led by head coach Jurgen Klinsmann, won 2-1 in the quarterfinals of the 2023 Asian Football Confederation Qatar Asian Cup against Australia at Al-Zanub Stadium in Alwakra, Qatar, at 0:30 a.m. on the 3rd (Korea Standard Time).
In the 42nd minute of the first half, Australia blocked a cross into the Korean penalty box and passed it to Kim Tae-hwan on the right side with Hwang In-beom looking at the goalpost while going up from the back. However, Australia’s striker Krake Goodwin, who caught it, took the ball away, and after connecting the pass, it went to the right cross of Australia’s Nathaniel Atkins. The Korean defense was confused by a sudden crisis, and no one checked Goodwin, who took over the cross again, and lost a point on a left-footed volley.
Hwang Hee-chan, however, did not miss his chance to save the country. In the extra time of the second half, Son Heung-min broke through the left side of the penalty box and scored a penalty kick. Hwang Hee-chan calmly scored a penalty kick with his right foot in the 6th minute of the extra time of the second half to balance the game 1-1. Eventually, the game went to extra time.
Son Heung-min played the role of troubleshooter himself in the extra time. Having secured a free kick opportunity just outside the left side of the penalty box in the 14th minute of extra time, Son scored a fantastic right-footed kick to break the net for Australia. Korea ultimately made it to the semifinals through a miraculous come-from-behind victory.
South Korea beat Australia to reach the semifinals after a bloody battle, but there is one thing I can’t laugh about. It is Kim Min-jae’s inability to play in the match against Jordan in the semifinals due to accumulated warnings. 헤라카지노
A player with two accumulated warnings in this Asian Cup will not be able to play in the next game, but Kim Min-jae, who was warned in the first group match against Bahrain, will not be able to play in the semifinals with one additional warning.
Kim Min-jae, the main defender of Germany’s prestigious Bayern Munich, and the core of Korea’s defense, displayed defensive cover in the right place and even participated in threatening attacks in the match against Australia on the day. Korea has allowed eight goals in the previous five matches, but if left out, there will be a huge gap in the Korean defense. Even with this victory, Korea could not erase its discomfort.
