April 26, 2024 | by

Despite the difficult situation, Korea created a tie.

The Olympic team, led by head coach Hwang Sun-hong, balanced 2-2 with Indonesia in the quarterfinals of the 2024 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) U23 Asian Cup at 2:30 a.m. on the 26th (Korea Standard Time) at Abdullah bin Khalifa Stadium in Doha, Qatar.

South Korea was 3-4-3 typical. Um Ji-sung, Kang Sung-jin, and Hong Si-hoo were three-top, Baek Sang-hoon and Kim Dong-jin formed midfielders, and Lee Tae-seok and Hwang Jae-won came out as wing-backs. Cho Hyun-taek, Byun Jun-su, and Lee Kang-hee established defense lines, and Baek Jong-beom wore goalkeeper gloves.
Indonesia faced off with a 3-4-3 formation. Marcelino Ferdinand, Raphael Strawick, and Witan Sulaiman made up the offense, Natan Chuaon and Ivar Jenner in the midfield, and Pratama Arhan and Rio Farmiga at wing-back. Justin Herbner, Rizky Lido, and Coman Tegu built defensive walls, while Hernando Arie kept the goal.

Korea failed to properly cope with the crisis that came after the opportunity. Indonesia scored the first goal. When Indonesia’s mid-range shot hit the defense in the 15th minute, Strawiecki, who was nearby, caught the ball and attempted to curl it with his right foot just outside the penalty box, which sucked into the goal. It was a shot that goalkeeper Baek Jong-beom could not stop.

South Korea scored an equalizer before the end of the first half. In the 45th minute, Hong Si-hoo hit a cross from the right and touched it with his head, which deflected off Tegu’s body and crossed the goalie’s goalie into the net. 안전놀이터

However, he allowed Indonesia to take the lead again with a lack of concentration defense. In the fourth minute of extra time in the first half, Jenner’s long pass headed to the penalty box, and Cho Hyun-taek and Lee Kang-hee rushed in at the same time, but rather, Strawick caught the ball and calmly kicked the ball in a one-on-one situation.

To make matters worse, South Korea fell into numerical inferiority. In the 20th minute of the second half, Lee Young-jun pushed Herbner down while trying to compete. The ball had already been released, and Lee Young-jun even stepped on Herbner’s ankle, although he did not intend to. The referee proceeded with the video review for a long time, and finally canceled the yellow card and took out the red card.

Nonetheless, Korea displayed its potential. Ten players battled to secure the equalizer. In a counterattack that started with Baek Jong-beom’s kick in the 39th minute of the second half, Hong Yoon-sang supplied the pass to the front at perfect timing, and Jeong calmly pushed the ball into the opposite goal.
