Reporter Ban Jin-hyeok = Jo Yoo-min told the story behind Hwang Hee-chan’s goal at the Qatar World Cup.
Baek Seung-ho, Na Sang-ho, and Cho Yu-min recently appeared on the YouTube channel ‘Shoot for Love’ and had time to remember the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
As a starting sortie, Na Sang-ho recalled the first match of the group stage against Uruguay, where he made his World Cup debut.
Coach Paulo Bento pulled out a surprise card to place Na Sang-ho on the right flank of Hwang Hee-chan, who was unable to play due to injury. 스포츠토토
Na Sang-ho, who took the opportunity to start, energized the side with active movements and vigorous activity.
Na Sang-ho said, “I was notified on the morning of the game. He was preparing to some extent, but he was nervous. He was excited when he warmed up at the stadium,” he recalled at the time.
After recording 1 draw and 1 loss against Uruguay and Ghana, Korea entered the third match against Portugal. They needed a win to advance to the round of 16.
South Korea conceded the first goal, but Kim Young-kwon’s equalizer balanced the game. Later, in the second half of extra time, Hee-Chan Hwang scored a pass that Son Heung-Min gave after a storm.
South Korea defeated Portugal, and secured a ticket to the round of 16 with Uruguay’s 2-0 win over Ghana and a goal advantage.
Baek Seung-ho, who watched Hwang Hee-chan’s goal from the bench at the time, said, “It wasn’t a fuss. He smiled, saying, “It was indescribable happiness and excitement.”
Cho Yoo-min told the story behind the goal, saying, “In the running situation, which is the process of scoring, Hwang Hee-chan couldn’t play 100% due to the aftermath of a hamstring injury. However, rather, Son Heung-min’s speed, pass timing and timing were right. So I think he scored a goal,” he said, sweeping his chest.
