As we reported earlier, South Korea drew with Honduras at the U-20 World Cup스포츠토토, and ‘European striker’ Kim Yong-hak shone in the clutch.

Kim Hyung-yeol is a reporter.


At the end of the first half, when the score was 1-0, Kim Yong-hak made a series of threatening shots.

A powerful left-footed shot was saved, and a thunderous mid-range shot went just wide of the goal, but it was enough to make us excited for the second half.

And with one goal down, Kim Yong-hak changed the game with a decisive strike.

In the 13th minute of the second half, he took a pass from Lee Young-joon and scored the winning goal with a half-beat quick shot.

Kim Yong-hak, who is not very tall at 168cm but has excellent dribbling and left-footed kicking ability, has already made his first-team debut for Portimonense in the Portuguese first division.

He is one of only two foreigners in our squad, along with Germany’s Freiburger Lee Ji-han, and after setting up Lee Seung-won’s goal with a picturesque assist in the last game against France, he stepped up to the plate and saved the day.

Captain Lee Seung-won, who had one goal and one assist against France, also recorded an attacking point for the second consecutive game, assisting Park Seung-ho’s equaliser with a ruler-like corner kick.

Luckily, they survived a major scare and moved closer to the round of 16.

However, it was unfortunate that defender Choi Seok-hyun and goalkeeper Kim Jun-hong received unnecessary cautions at the last minute and will miss the match against the Gambia.
