Last season’s ace Sohn Seok-yong’s ‘Magic Goal’, which led Gimpo to 7 matches undefeated
Gimpo FC’s blast doesn’t know how to stop. Gimpo won 1-0 with Sohn Seok-yong’s winning goal in the 41st minute of the first half in the 8th round of ‘Hana 1 Q K League 2 2023’ against Busan I’Park held at Gimpo Salter Soccer Field on the 19th. Gimpo continued their undefeated streak of 7 matches (4 wins, 3 draws) after the opening day with the victory. Including the FA Cup, they are undefeated in 9 games. With 15 points, Gimpo jumped up to 3rd place. Busan, which was also undefeated, tasted its first loss of the season in seven games.
Gimpo was forced to rotate due to overlapping injuries and physical problems.토토사이트 Defender Lee Kang-yeon, who had just returned from injury, had to make his first start of the season. As soon as the weekend matches were played, he had to touch the midfield as well. Jang Yun-ho, Lee Seong-jae, and Kim Seong-min stepped forward. Gimpo coach Go Jeong-woon sighed, “Although we are running undefeated, we are in a situation like a sandcastle that may collapse at any moment.”
What to believe was the pressure and mobility unique to Gimpo. The members changed, but the color of Gimpo was still the same. Lewis and Pablo, two foreign players, did not neglect the pressure. Busan attacked Gimpo’s goal by mobilizing the Brazilian trio of Franklin, Pesin, and Lamas, but failed to create a decisive opportunity. Rather, Gimpo’s counterattack was sharper. In the 16th minute of the first half, Gimpo was disappointed that Pablo’s shot, which received an exquisite 2-1 pass from Lewis, was blocked by goalkeeper Koo Sang-min’s super save. In the 37th minute, Kim Seong-min, who had been working diligently on the right side, was injured, but Gimpo managed to score the first goal.
The solution was Son Seok-yong. In the 41st minute of the first half, a corner kick from the right by Park Gwang-il was finished by Son Seok-yong with a powerful header. It was his first goal of the season. Son Seok-yong was the ace of Gimpo last season. Along with Yoon Min-ho, he recorded the most goals in the team with 8 goals. However, due to an injury, he could not properly digest the winter training, and foreign strikers such as Luis and Juninho joined the team and lost their starting position. He was put in only as a substitute this season and only posted one assist, but failed to report a goal. While his presence was fading, Son Seok-yong did not miss his first starter opportunity. He exploded the winning goal and clearly appealed to coach Go Jeong-woon.
In the second half, a more intense game unfolded. Busan launched an all-out offensive with Choi Ki-yoon, Choi Geon-ju, and Jeong Won-jin, but Gimpo blocked it with a physical defense. In the 35th minute of the second half, Lee Seong-jae’s tackle, which stopped Lamas’ single chance, was the highlight. Gimpo showed proper counterattacks and stable defensive organization in the remaining time, and succeeded in catching Busan ‘big fish’.
On the other hand, Sangmu Kim Cheon succeeded in winning three in a row. In the match against Jeonnam Dragons held at Gimcheon Sports Complex, Kimcheon won 2-1 with consecutive goals from Kwon Chang-hoon and Kim Min-jun. Cheonan City FC drew 1-1 at home with Ansan Greeners. Cheonan, who lost 7 games in a row after the opening, succeeded in gaining the f
