In the 36th minute of the second half, 현금홀덤사이트 Uhm Won-sang scored a golden equalizer to end the game 1-1.

After the game, Hong said, “The result was a draw, but we struggled in the first half. We should have waited a little longer for the midfield to be drawn out, and when we pressed together, the ball went into the space between the midfield and defense,” said Hong.

Incheon were in the form they’ve been in, and we were in a different form, but the fact that the players didn’t give up until the end and scored a goal is positive for the next game.”

Ulsan made a midfield adjustment at halftime. Lee Kyu-sung dropped back and Kim Min-hyuk and Ataru moved forward a bit more.

“We attacked from the three-back, but Lee Myung-jae was on the left side and was pressured by the opponent. We put Lee Kyu-sung down and put Kim Min-hyuk and Ataru up high. Kim Min-hyuk moved up and we played better than in the first half.”

Despite the loss of momentum, Hong’s substitution card was spot on, as substitute Uhm Won-sang scored the equalizer. “We have another game coming up,” said Hong. Considering the fatigue level of the players, I thought it was appropriate to play them for that amount of time today,” Hong explained.

“We were in a tight situation, so I thought I could give them a little more energy. Uhm Won-sang’s goal speaks volumes about her situation. She’s in good shape overall, and her mental state is good because she’s in the national team. It was a short time, but she showed a good performance.”

Hong Jae-seok came on as a substitute and made his professional debut. “He was stable and did well,” said Hong. He made one or two very big mistakes. Players grow by making mistakes. I think he can grow into a good player who can cover the weaknesses in our defense.”
