Gangwon to Changwon, Changwon to Suwon.
Jeju United, a professional soccer team, will play against Suwon Samsung in the 7th round of the Hana One Q K League 1 2023 held at Suwon World Cup Stadium on the 15th. The goal is to win all three consecutive trips in April, which were the biggest hurdle.
Jeju, who had fallen to the bottom with 5 consecutive draws (2 draws and 3 losses) after the opening, won their first league win (1-0 win) this season against Gangwon on April 9, followed by a 1-0 victory in the FA Cup 3rd round on April 12. Even the Changwon City Hall soccer team is on the rise, winning 2-1. Previously, the main players were shaken for a while as they encountered a large number of injured reefs, but the mood reversal started.메이저놀이터
In particular, coach Nam Ki-il is erasing the three consecutive matches (Gangwon-Changwon City Hall-Suwon) in April, which were full of question marks, with an exclamation mark. At the same time as managing the condition and stamina of the main players, the team’s motivation was increased with the optimal rotation of Seo Jin-soo, Lim Dong-hyuk, and Kim Geun-bae. Previously, Seo Jin-soo scored the winning goal in the Gangwon expedition as a substitute card. ‘Suite Striker’ Lim Dong-hyeok, who changed his position to striker, showed his presence at the Changwon City Hall match with his overwhelming supply and assist ability. Veteran goalkeeper Kim Geun-bae also defended the team with a save show in the FA Cup.
Naturally, the capabilities of the players who were originally selected are also reviving. Kim Joo-gong scored his first goal of the season in the 40th minute against Changwon City Hall, receiving a header pass from Lim Dong-hyuk from Lee Chang-min’s free kick chance. Kim Joo-gong, who has regained his confidence, is aiming for the first goal in the league away from Suwon. Previously, Kim Joo-gong has a good memory of scoring his debut goal and the preemptive goal in an expedition to Suwon on March 1 last year. Forefront striker Yuri also showed quick adaptation by serving as the starting point for Koo Ja-cheol’s dramatic winning goal after being substituted at the Changwon City Hall match.
Koo Ja-cheol leads internal solidarity on the ground with his captain, while showing his own class without hesitation. Koo Ja-cheol showed overwhelming performance in various indicators such as the most shots in the team (3), the most passes in the team (48), and the successful acquisition of the second aerial ball in the team (9) in the Gangwon expedition. In the FA Cup, he came on as a substitute in the 22nd minute of the second half when the match was 1-1, and even scored a theatrical goal right before the end of the game, earning a ticket to the FA Cup round of 16.
The upcoming Suwon expedition also has a strong will to overcome it well by putting their heads together. Coach Nam Ki-il said through the club, “I gained more confidence as I continued winning three consecutive away matches, which everyone thought was difficult. The players are also having a hard time, but they are still overcoming it. In the end, we have to become stronger. The team is becoming more solid. I will upgrade not only the performance but also the condition management of the players and the distribution of playing time in all aspects.”
