Professional soccer K League 1 side Gangwon FC conceded a heartbreaking equalizer in stoppage time to earn a disappointing draw.
Gangwon drew 1-1 away to Jeju United in the 25th round of the Hana OneQ K League 2023 at Jeju World Cup Stadium at 7:30 p.m. on June 6. Kangwon scored the opening goal through Park Sang-hyuk, but conceded a penalty in stoppage time to Hayes to share the points.
Gangwon have made some positive changes since the arrival of Yoon Jeong-hwan. On this day, he switched to the back four and became more active in attack, and as a result, the victory seemed in sight when substitute Park Sang-hyuk opened the scoring in the 37th minute. However, in stoppage time, a foul inside the Jeju penalty box resulted in a penalty kick that allowed Hayes to equalize.
At the official post-match press conference, Yoon’s face was full of disappointment. “The players understood that we had prepared for two weeks. We had a few chances, but it’s a shame we couldn’t score. We scored the first goal, but we didn’t have the concentration to hold on until the end. I’m disappointed because the players worked hard. There is nothing to talk about, we will prepare well for the next one.”
Lee Seung-won, who was a standout at the U-20 World Cup, was given a long chance on the day. He did his job well, but there was also a scene where he made a bad judgment on a chance. Coach Yoon said, “He was disappointed after the pass, but I think he did a good job. He did his job well in his position. I think she will have more chances in the future.” Yoon cheered her on. 먹튀검증
Kangwon’s offense has been sluggish with 16 goals in 25 games, including this one. However, on this day, she showed a different side by actively shooting. He said, “I trained a lot this week, but it’s too bad that I couldn’t score. It was a situation where we could have scored if it went in the back of the net. I’m sure the players wanted to score, but it’s a shame. I think we need to train more,” he said.
