South Korea came back from 0-2 down to draw 2-2 with Honduras and set themselves up for a place in the round of 16.

Kim Eun-joong’s South Korea U-20s drew 2-2 with Honduras in their second Group F match of the FIFA U-20 World Cup 2023 at the Malvinas Stadium in Mendoza, Argentina, on Friday (25 July).

The draw means that South Korea, who were looking for a second straight win against Honduras after a 2-1 victory over France in their first group game, now have one point. Topping Group F are Gambia, who also won back-to-back games against Honduras and France.토토사이트

South Korea started Lee Young-joon, Kim Yong-hak, Lee Seung-won, Kang Sung-jin, Kang Sang-yoon, Bae Joon-ho, Park Chang-woo, Choi Seok-hyun, Kim Ji-su, Bae Seo-joon, and Kim Jun-hong.

Honduras lined up in a 4-2-3-1 with Marco Aseituno up front, followed by Hefryn Macias, Isaac Castillo, Exon Arsu, David Luis Ochoa, Tomas Sorto, Javier Ariaga, Jeremy Rodas, Anfronit Tatum, Felix Garcia, and Jurgen Garcia.

In the midst of this exploratory game, Honduras suffered a setback. Frontline striker Aseituno rolled his ankle on his own in the previous play and went down.

As a result, Honduras took him off early in the game and brought on Daniel Carter Boden.

However, South Korea took the lead. Honduras’ Daniel Carter Boden collided with Choi Seok-hyun as he broke through.

The referee awarded a penalty after a VAR review. Kicker Ochoa stepped up to take the spot kick after being struck by Kim Jun-hong’s hand.

Ochoa, who scored in the 27th minute, was shown a red card. He contested a ball with Bae Seo-joon near the touchline and struck him in the face with his right hand. Ochoa, who was hit in the face with precision, expressed his frustration.

The referee went for a VAR review, cancelled the yellow card and then showed the red card. Ochoa was sent off for scoring a goal and was given the ignominy of joining the ‘Garinsha Club’.

South Korea continued to harass Honduras, with Kim Yong-hak hitting the post with a sharp shot. They spent six minutes of first-half stoppage time trying to find an equaliser. The first half ended with Honduras leading 1-0.

In the second half, South Korea continued to attack aggressively. They pressed hard against a one-man Honduran team. However, they were unable to create anything. Despite their fierce moves, they were far from the goal.

To make matters worse, South Korea conceded another goal. Honduras scored six minutes into the second half when Castillo converted a pass from Carter with a sharp right-footed shot.

South Korea scored a late goal in the 22nd minute. Kim Yong-hak scored with a left-footed shot off a ball from Lee Young-joon, who had scored against France, to make it 1-2.

South Korea continued to push forward and scored another goal. In the 17th minute of the second half, Park Seung-ho, a late substitute, scored with an exquisite header from a corner kick from the left, making it 2-2. South Korea introduced Lee Seung-jun for the injured Park Seung-ho in the 30th minute of the second half.

South Korea brought on Hwang In-Taek for Lee Seung-Won in the 35th minute. South Korea tightened up their defence without Lee Seung-won, who was out of shape. South Korea attacked relentlessly and challenged for the win. All players, including Lee Young-joon, tried their best to shoot, but they missed the target.

South Korea lost Choi Seok-hyun in stoppage time due to yellow card accumulation. In the end, Korea ended the match with a draw.
