In the second leg of their Asian Games match against Thailand, Hwang Sunghong Ho will use their long striker duo of Ahn Jae-jun (Bucheon) and Park Jae-yong (Jeonbuk Hyundai) to battle high up the pitch. This is because the opponent is likely to keep all 10 field players inside the penalty area and play defense.
Hwang Sun-hong’s men’s team will take on Thailand in their second Group E match of the Hangzhou 2022 Asian Games at the Jinhua Sports Center Stadium in Jinhua, China, at 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday (June 21). After a convincing 9-0 victory over Kuwait in the first leg on Aug. 19, the team sits atop Group E with three points. Thailand drew 1-1 with Bahrain to share the points.
Hwang Sun-hong will be attempting to win his third consecutive gold medal after winning in Incheon 2014 and Jakarta-Palembang 2018. They started off fresh with a record-breaking win over Kuwait in their first game. A victory over Thailand will allow them to clinch top spot in the group early, depending on the results of the other matches.
The variable is the tight schedule. The three-week nature of the Asian Games means that teams have to play up to seven games in three weeks before the final. The tournament kicks off on Sept. 23, but men’s soccer kicked off earlier on Sept. 19. The final is scheduled for Oct. 7, which means seven games in 19 days, sometimes with only one day of rest between games.
This was the case between the first and second games of the group stage. After playing Kuwait on the 19th, the team will only have one day off on the 20th before facing Thailand on the 21st. There are two days off between the second and third games, and three days between the final and round of 16 games. With such a tight group stage schedule, it’s not realistic to expect the same starting lineup that started the first game.
For this reason, the national team will have to rotate against Thailand. Against Kuwait, Lee Kwang-yeon started in goal, Hwang Jae-won, Park Jin-seob, Lee Han-beom, and Park Kyu-hyun in defense, and Jung Woo-young, Baek Seung-ho, Uhm Won-sang, and Jung Ho-yeon in midfield. Cho Young-wook and Ko Young-joon partnered up front.
That’s six players who played full time: Lee Kwang-yeon, center backs Park Jin-seop and Lee Han-beom, left back Park Kyu-hyun, midfielder Jung Ho-yeon, and striker Cho Young-wook. With the exception of Lee Kwang-yeon, who plays a specialty position, there will likely be rotation in all five spots. 카지노사이트
The tactics will also be different. Whereas against Kuwait, the team focused on the organic play of Cho Young-wook and Ko Young-joon and tried to penetrate into the Kuwaiti backline, against Thailand, the team will try to fight high up the field, utilizing the height of Ahn Jae-joon or Park Jae-yong to replace Cho Young-wook.
Ahn is 185 centimeters and Park Jae-yong is a whopping 193 centimeters. Considering that the Thai defense doesn’t have a center back over 6-foot-2, this is a viable strategy.
