North Korea collapses due to extended buzzer beater… 2014 Asian Games Dramatic inter-Korean war will come out again this year in China

Do you remember that South Korea and North Korea met in the soccer final of the Asian Games held in Incheon in 2014?

At that time, South Korea defeated North Korea 1-0 and won the championship. At that time, with three wild cards, Kim Shin-wook, Park Joo-ho, and Kim Seung-gyu, Korea showed an unstoppable victory.

After beating Japan 1-0 in the quarterfinals, Korea advanced to the final by beating Thailand 2-0 in the semifinals.

What was surprising was North Korea’s propaganda. After beating UAE 1-0 in the quarterfinals, they defeated Iraq 1-0 again in the semifinals to advance to the final. The finals of the tournament held in Korea spread into a huge event called the North-South War.

Korea was ahead in terms of objective power, but the game at the time was pretty brutal. I played 90 minutes in the first half, but the score was 0-0. No goals were scored in the 30-minute extra time that followed.

When everyone was thinking about a penalty shootout, North Korea’s goal was opened. In the 15th minute of the second half of extra time, there was a confusion before the goal, and Lim Chang-woo’s right-footed shot crossed the goal line.

The North Korean players, who secretly hoped for a miracle in the penalty shootout, collapsed tearing their hair out. Two minutes later, the whistle sounded to end the game, and the result was Korea’s victory.

This match is considered one of the few events in a major tournament where South Korea and North Korea met in a big game. This is because it is not easy for North Korean soccer, which has fallen below the top 100 in the FIFA rankings, to meet the Korean team in the final stage. In addition, the North Korean sports team was suspended from the International Olympic Committee (IOC) for unilaterally not participating in the Tokyo Olympics, and could not participate in the competition for a while. This is the reason why North Korea has not been on the international sports stage for the past three years.메이저사이트

However, it is expected that North Korea will send a 200-person team to the Asian Games held in Hangzhou, China in September this year. On the 13th, Japan’s Kyodo News reported that North Korea had registered a team of about 200 players, coaches, and executives for the Hangzhou Asian Games through the mouth of a source familiar with North Korea’s circumstances active in Beijing, China.

Previously, ANN, a Japanese private broadcaster network, also reported that North Korea had registered hundreds of athletes for the Hangzhou Asian Games. North Korea is known to participate in soccer, swimming and dragon boating.

North Korea sent two representatives to the Asian Games pre-meeting held in Hangzhou on the 26th of last month and expressed its intention to participate. At the East Asian Karate Championships held in Taizhou, China on the 28th and 30th of last month, two North Korean male athletes participated and attracted attention.

I am looking forward to seeing how North Korean football, which has returned to the international stage after 3 years, will perform. If South Korea and North Korea meet, it’s sure to be an exciting match we haven’t seen in a long time. If the two teams match, the two teams will meet in the Asian Games after 10 years.

The Korean team is led by head coach Hwang Seon-hong. The roster for the under-24 (U-24) national team convened a while ago includes many key players in the K-League, such as Um Won-sang (Ulsan), Yang Hyeon-jun (Gangwon), Ko Young-jun (Pohang), and Cho Young-wook (Gimcheon).
