Even in ‘unconventional’ mercenary techniques, there is significant synergy between second-line resources.

Hwang Seon-Hong-Ho’s strength lies in his ever-changing second line. Coach Hwang is forming the second line with the optimal combination, but in fact, it is close to ‘unconventional’. Coach Hwang formed the second-tier combination of Song Min-gyu (Jeonbuk Hyundai), Ko Young-jun (Pohang Steelers), and Ahn Jae-jun (Bucheon FC) in the quarterfinals against China.
Song Min-gyu was his first starter in the competition. The match against China was the first time that Song Min-gyu, Ko Young-jun, and Ahn Jae-jun combined as starters. Nonetheless, it worked. Song Min-gyu repaid Coach Hwang’s faith by scoring an additional goal to escape a 1-0 situation. When Song Min-gyu ran to the bench after scoring, Coach Hwang hugged him with a bright expression. After the game, Song Min-gyu shyly said, “I don’t know why the coach hugged me with that expression.” The concept of the second match against China was ‘strength’. The goal was to respond with force rather than technology against China, which usually plays rough.
And in the match against Uzbekistan, he brought out a completely different second-line card. The concept this time was technology. In the match against China, Coach Hwang created a second-line combination of Jung Woo-young (Stuttgart), Lee Kang-in (Paris Saint-Germain), and Eom Won-sang (Ulsan Hyundai). This combination is a mobilization of resources with both speed and technology. The plan was to deploy technicians and increase ball possession while avoiding a power struggle with strong Uzbekistan. Of course, this idea did not work perfectly. Nevertheless, Jung Woo-young scored multiple goals and contributed greatly to Hwang Seon-hong’s advancement to the finals.
Here, Lee Kang-in is gradually finding himself. Lee Kang-in, who has just recovered from her injury, has continued to improve her physical condition. And on this day, Lee Kang-in showed that she was back on track by not only actively fighting but also sprinting. She became more and more resilient.
Now there is only one step left until ‘3 consecutive losses’. Attention is being paid to what combination Coach Hwang will use as a second-line card in the finals. Director Hwang’s time to choose is approaching.
