Gangwon FC, which is in crisis, will play in the FA Cup to change the atmosphere.

Gangwon, led by head coach Choi Yong-soo, will play the fourth round (round of 16) of the FA Cup against Gimpo FC at 7 p.m. on the 24th at Gimpo Salter Sports Park Football Stadium. Gangwon, which lost 0-2 to Suwon Samsung in the fourth round last year, is determined to advance to the quarterfinals this time.메이저사이트

From Gangwon’s point of view, in addition to simply advancing to the quarterfinals, it needs to win this game to change the atmosphere. Gangwon has been scoreless in four consecutive games in the league. During this period, he lost one draw and three losses, and is still ranked 11th, the lowest in the league. Although it is not a league game, he should win the FA Cup and create a good atmosphere ahead of the away match against FC Seoul scheduled for the 28th.

However, the opponent is not easy. Gimpo FC, a member of the second division K League 2, is a new club in its second year as a professional, but it is at the top of the K League 2 with the only undefeated (7 wins and 5 draws) in both K League 1 and 2 this season. If the current performance of 25 professional teams in the K League 1 and 2 is lined up, it is only two steps below Gangwon. In addition, the fact that this game will be held at the home of Gimpo is also a burden for Gangwon.

As difficulties are expected, Gangwon will have to play key players. In particular, striker Lee Jung-hyeop, who returned from injury, is expected to perform. Lee Jung-hyeop was substituted at the end of the second half against the Pohang Steelers on the 21st and returned for the first time in about three months. After the match against Pohang, head coach Choi Yong-soo said about Lee Jung-hyeop, “I put in about 15 minutes, but I have advantages in the right to provide and have good play with nearby players,” adding, “There is also the Gimpo FC and FA Cup, but I am gradually trying to increase my playing time.” Attention is focusing on whether Lee Jung-hyeop will be able to become the savior of Gangwon, which is in crisis.

Meanwhile, goalkeeper Yoo Sang-hoon, who was selected as the MVP of the game by making a good defense against Pohang, was selected as the best 11 goalkeeper in the 14th round of the K League 1.
