China’s controversy over forced judgment ‘stop’… Legend-AFC referee supervisor also acknowledges – “Not leaving”

January 18, 2024 | by bookmeforphotographers.com

China’s protest was nothing but far-fetched.

The Chinese national soccer team drew 0-0 with Lebanon in the second Group A match of the 2023 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Asian Cup at Altumama Stadium in Doha, Qatar, on the afternoon of the 17th (Korea time). Following the match against Tajikistan, it failed to secure three points until the match against Lebanon, putting it on alert to advance to the round of 16.

Prior to the match, there was information that caught the attention of soccer fans. 헤라카지노 The judges in charge of the match were assigned to Koreans. Referee Ko Hyung-jin, who received the 2023 Korea Football Association (KFA) Judgment of the Year award, grabbed the whistle. Referee Kim Jong-hyuk also conducted a VAR review, and referees Park Sang-joon and Kim Kyung-min were present at the deputy referee.

Meanwhile, China had a draw on the day, making it impossible to guarantee its advance to the round of 16. China is scheduled to play its last group match against Qatar on the 23rd. China must catch Qatar to advance to the round of 16. However, Qatar is the host of this year’s event. As the host country, it will be supported by home fans.

Moreover, Qatar is ahead of China in terms of objective performance. Qatar is ranking 58th in the FIFA rankings, while China is ranking 79th in the FIFA rankings. It is disadvantageous to China in many ways.

The Korean referee led the game smoothly as a whole. He took out yellow cards at the right time to prevent a situation that could have led to a fierce war of nerves between the two teams. In the second half, when the two teams engaged in a war of nerves, they actively tried to stop them. In addition, they responded firmly to the players’ harsh protests.

He was the referee, Ko, who made an easy decision throughout the game, but there was a heated debate among soccer fans. In the 14th minute of the first half, China was offside. Lebanon defender Kamis raised his foot high and touched the ball, lowered his foot and hit Dai Weijun in the face with a stud on the bottom of his soccer shoes. The referee, Koh, who immediately communicated with VAR, did not issue a warning or send-off.

Chinese media and fans were furious. “Sohoo,” one of China’s largest portal sites, pointed out that the referee’s decision was wrong, saying, “Dai Wei-jun was kicked in the face by his opponent, but the referee didn’t even give him a yellow card.”

However, experts had different views. According to Chinese media Sina Sports, Sun Ji-hai, a legendary Chinese defender, defended the referee’s decision by saying, “When the opponent was putting his foot up, Dai was pushing his head towards an unreachable ball. That’s why Kamis did not kick Dai. It was because of inertia.”

The same was true of the opinion of the referee supervisor who evaluates the referee’s progress and judgment. Shortly after the match between China and Lebanon, AFC referee supervisor Kwon Jong-chul, who met with Spotify News over the phone, explained the referee’s decision in person.

“Khamis raised his foot high and touched the ball, and then naturally lowered his foot. I don’t see any intention of intentionally hitting the Chinese player in this process,” Kwon said.

In fact, Kamis shot Dai Weijun’s face while lowering his foot after seeing the ball first. “I couldn’t avoid the Chinese player’s face after raising my foot high. If Kamis had kicked a Chinese player in the second movement, it would have been an exit, but it was just a natural process for Kamis to lower his foot,” Kwon said, adding it was not unusual for the referee not to issue a warning or exit.
