Yoon Yong-ho, who saved Cheonan City FC from defeat with a free kick in the last minute of the second half, sent a message of thanks to the fans.
On the 11th, Cheonan played the 17th round of the Hana OneQ K League 2 2023 at Bucheon Sports Complex and drew 1-1 with Bucheon FC 1995. After conceding an early goal to Hamos in the 20th minute, Yoon Yong-ho equalized in the 39th minute from a free kick. Cheonan failed to get their first win of the season, but earned their second point of the season with the draw.
Speaking at the post-match press conference, Yoon Yong-ho said, “I was waiting on the bench and watching the game. I came on as the last substitute, and I’m glad I was able to help the team draw.”
On the free kick that led to the goal, he said, “I’ve been practicing free kicks all week. I practiced mainly on the right free kick, but I also kicked it from the left side and it felt just like it did when I was practicing. Luckily, the ball avoided the wall and went in.”
Cheonan head coach Park Nam-yeol, who attended the press conference before Yoon, thanked Yoon for scoring the equalizer, saying that he must have had a hard time getting into the starting lineup consistently. Yoon Yong-ho responded, “I had a sore spot when I left the field at the beginning of the game. I tried to play through it because the team’s performance was not good, but it was a negative for the team. I think you talked about it. I hope I can help the team now.” 스포츠토토

The players are eager to play, but the fans are even more eager. When I see them, it makes me play one step further.” He expressed his gratitude.
