With just one game left to win the men’s soccer gold medal at the Hangzhou 2022 Asian Games, South Korea’s coach Hwang Sun-hong is determined to win the remaining match against South Korea to complete the gold medal haul. “As expected, it was a difficult game,” Huang said at a press conference after the men’s football semifinal against Uzbekistan at the Hangzhou Asian Games at Huanglong Sports Center Stadium in Hangzhou, China, on Thursday.

We didn’t show much of what we are good at,” Hwang said. On the free-kick concessions, Hwang said, “Against a team that has a free-kick specialist, there are some things we can’t control, like fouling in the danger zone,” but added, “You can’t play football without conceding any goals.” “It’s a game that can change depending on the opponent. We are positive about the victory,” he said, adding that he was grateful for the players’ determination and focus in a difficult match .South Korea will face Japan in the gold medal match on Sunday.
