“I shot perfectly, but I failed to score. I think I’ll remember it until I go to bed.”
Seongnam FC drew 0-0 with Chungnam Asan in the 3rd round of ‘Hanawon Q K League 2 2023’ held at Tancheon Sports Complex on the 12th at 1:30 pm. Seongnam finished 3 games after opening with 1 win, 1 draw and 1 loss.
The problem of scoring was revealed again. After Mulich left, Seongnam, which had difficulty recruiting foreign strikers, put Lee Jong-ho at the forefront once again. Lee Jong-ho struggled, but was blocked every time by Cho Yoon-seong and the Chungnam-Asan defense. Shim Dong-woon and Jeong Han-min applied, but missed the opportunity. Director Lee Gi-hyeong, who swallowed regret, put Shin Jae-won in the second half.
Shin Jae-won was the only attacker to taste a goal this season. He scored a theatrical goal against the Ansan Greeners in the opening game. He is a player who mainly plays on the side, but in this game, he came in as a substitute and formed a two-top team with Lee Jong-ho. It seemed like a strategic replacement to solve Lee Jong-ho’s isolation phenomenon and dig into the space between Chungnam-Asan’s defense.
Shin Jae-won moved actively. He did well in the role that coach Lee Ki-hyung demanded by not only staying in the front line, but also falling to the side or taking penetration. In the 37th minute of the second half, we had a decisive opportunity. In the counterattack situation, Lee Jae-won’s pass was hit by Chungnam-Asan’s defense, but it headed in front of Shin Jae-won. He shot as it was, but was frustrated by Park Han-geun’s save. 안전놀이터 All members of Seongnam, including directors Shin Jae-won and Lee Ki-hyung, felt sorry for them.
The match ended in a 0-0 draw. Although they did not lose, it was regrettable that Seongnam’s decision-making problem continued. Shin Jae-won, who couldn’t take advantage of the opportunity, said in an interview with Mixt Zone, “Many fans came despite the rainy weather, but it was regrettable that we couldn’t win. It was even more regrettable that we couldn’t score a goal.”
Regarding the scoring scene, “I was in a free situation when Lee Jae-won’s cross came out after being hit by the defense. I came a little high and kicked it with a volley. The timing was good and it hit well. But it was blocked by the goalkeeper. I think I will always remember this,” he said.
