Hwang Sun-hong starts his second journey. The opponent is China.

The U-23 national team led by Hwang will play its second Group B match against China at the 2024 Asian Football Confederation U-23 Asian Cup at the Abdullah bin Khalifa Stadium in Doha, Qatar, at 10 p.m. on Tuesday (Korea time). The Korean team was frustrated at the first match of the Arab Emirates, but Lee Young-joon scored the finisher to win 1-0. It is tied for first place in the group along with Japan.

Hwang Seon-hong definitely felt an empty spot without Bae Joon-ho (Stock City) and Yang Hyun-joon (Celtic) from European leagues. The offense was simple. From the side, he consistently displayed impressive offense through crosses. Although the team should take into account that it was the first group match, its offense was not satisfactory. The team only scored one goal by scoring 43 crosses. The team needs to beef up its completeness in the offense.

China failed to score a goal despite its numerical advantage in the first game, and knelt down. If China loses the second game, it will likely make all-out efforts as it is confirmed to be eliminated early. It is true that China is one level below the national team’s capacity. The most ideal scenario is to win multiple points through more diverse attack routes. As the group’s No. 1 ranking can be determined by goal difference, scoring as many goals as possible could be in Hwang’s favor.

The positive part is that Jung Sang-bin (Minnesota United) from overseas has joined and started adjusting to jet lag. As he joined late after completing his team’s schedule, there is still a possibility that he will play as a substitute in terms of condition management against China. If Jung Sang-bin joins, Hwang Sun-hong’s offense could become sharp.

Moreover, Hwang’s opponent in the third group match is Japan, which is “Sukmyung’s” rival. Japan is considered a strong contender for the title at this year’s event. Japan has been operating the U-23 national team in line with the Olympics. As such, the team has been steadily consolidating its teamwork. 고소득알바

Hwang Sun-hong was completely defeated by Japan 0-3 in the quarterfinals of the 2022 AFC U-23 Asian Cup. Coach Hwang himself has continued to renew his sword while continuing to revive the match against Japan at the time. Coach Oiwa Ko, who led Japan at the time, continues to take the helm. The will to take revenge is bound to be that great.

Above all, if Hwang Sun-hong defeats China, he will be able to confirm his advance to the quarterfinals early depending on the result of the showdown between Japan and the UAE. If so, he will be able to deal with Japan somewhat less burdened.
