“0 effective shots” I was surprised, too. “Why while Jordan hit 17 times? There was no 4th miracle in Korea.” Devalued ‘humiliating.’

Japan was also surprised by the ‘0 effective shots’.

The South Korean national soccer team, led by coach Jurgen Klinsmann, lost 0-2 to Jordan in the semi-final of the 2023 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Qatar Asian Cup at Ahmad Bin Ali Stadium in Alayyan, Qatar, at 0 a.m. on the 7th (Korea time). South Korea, which sought to win the tournament for the first time in 64 years, failed to advance to the finals by giving Jordan, who thought it one step down, a victory after being pushed back throughout the game.

Korea was embarrassed by Jordan’s offensive throughout the game. Jordan continued to torment Korea from the beginning to the last minute. After finishing the first half without finding a way to attack, Korea suffered from offensives by giving up the lead in the second half as well. Jordan finally scored the first goal in the eighth minute of the second half. There was no “zombie soccer” that Korea showed in this year’s event. After losing the first goal, Korea shrank further and eventually collapsed by getting an additional goal in the 21st minute of the second half. 월카지노

Japan’s Soccer Digest reported on the 7th that “the fourth miracle did not happen to Korea.”

“South Korea, where Kim Min-jae was excluded due to the disciplinary action, showed signs of instability from the beginning. In the second half, the momentum was further dampened by the two consecutive extra games. The replacement tactics didn’t work at all and they were completely defeated,” he explained.

The media explained that South Korea experienced a total of three miracles in the last game. In the second group match against Jordan, the opponent’s own goal at the end of the game was drawn, and in the round of 16 against Saudi Arabia, Hwang Hee-chan’s penalty kick (PK) was on the verge of defeat in the extra time of the second half and won the penalty shootout. He then won the quarterfinals against Australia with Son Heung-min’s free kick goal in the extra time of the second half. The media said, “In the end, there was no fourth miracle.”

It also noted that Korea had 0 effective shots. “Lee Jae-sung’s header hit the post and Cho Kyu-sung’s threatening header slightly missed the post, but in the end, the effective shot was 0,” the media said. “On the other hand, Jordan hit 17 shots. Seven of them were effective shots.”

The media said, “South Korea’s ambition, which aimed to win for the first time in 64 years, has gone up in smoke in the semifinals.”
