It was an exhilarating match between Korea and Japan that I haven’t seen in a long time.
Rather, Eom Won-sang and Cho Young-wook’s shots at the end of the second half were good enough to be considered goals. In addition, he hit several effective shots and constantly created good opportunities. Japan tried to counterattack, but was busy blocking South Korea’s attack. In the second half, there was not a single decent shot. That’s how harshly Korea pushed it.
It wasn’t just this final. In this tournament, the Korean national team showed off the most perfect performance despite having played the most games. (For example, Uzbekistan advanced after only playing two games in two groups due to two teams withdrawing.) Korea Under-24s
( The U-24 ) men’s soccer team achieved its first three-game losing streak in Asian Games history with an overwhelming record of 27 goals and wins in all seven games.
As a result, Korea achieved a milestone of three consecutive Asian Games wins, following Incheon in 2014 and Jakarta and Palembang in 2018. There have been countries that have won the Asian Games men’s soccer title two times in a row, but Korea is the first country to win three times in a row.
