‘First place in the league in four years’ coach Yoon Jung-hwan “feels like a dream”

Yang Min-hyuk’s performance “is so good that I’m just happy”

Gangwon FC head coach Yoon Jeong-hwan said it was like a dream after the team’s surprise first win in nearly four years.

Yoon Jeong-hwan’s side defeated Suwon 3-1 at home in the 17th round of the Hana Bank K League 1 2024 at Songam Sports Town in Chuncheon on Friday, with consecutive goals from Yoo In-soo, Yago, and Yang Min-hyuk to overcome a one-goal deficit by Lee Seung-woo.

With the three points, Gangwon moved level on points with Ulsan HD, who have played one game less but have a superior goal difference, with nine wins, four draws and 31 points. Suwon drops to fifth place (8W3D6L-27P). Gangwon will travel to Gangneung after winning their final home game of the season in Chuncheon.

The home team lined up in a 4-4-2 formation, with Lee Kwang-yeon in goal and Hwang Mungi-Ki, Kang Too-ji, Kim Young-bin, and Song Jun-seok in the back four. Kim Kang-guk, Kim Dae-woo, Yoo In-soo, and Yang Min-hyuk combined in the midfield, while Yago and Lee Sang-heon were the two up front.

Gangwon took the lead in the 13th minute through Yoo In-soo. After receiving a penetrating pass from Lee Sang-heon, Yoo In-soo slotted the ball into the corner of the goal with his right foot.

Suwon equalized in the 10th minute of the second half through Lee Seung-woo. Lee played a pass to Andersson, who broke through the right side of the box and drove to the near post. He then dropped it low to Lee Seung-woo, who rushed in front of the goal and rattled the net with just his foot.

However, Gangwon immediately responded with another goal. Yago received a pass from Lee Sang-heon and split the net with a powerful left-footed shot. High school phenom Yang Min-hyuk then added a wedge goal to complete the sweep at home and give Gangwon a surprise lead.

“I want to congratulate the players for winning five games in a row,” said Yoon after the match, “they prepared well for two weeks and I think it’s good that they followed through with their preparations.

“It was our last game at home and I knew that after four straight wins there would always be a challenge. The players showed a lot of tenacity and came out with a lot of things they wanted to do. We scored first and still had the lead, but we could have given it back to them. After we conceded, we scored again to take the momentum, and I think we finished the game with one more goal,” he reflected.

Gangwon took the league lead for the first time in four years since June 5, 2020. “I’m happy that everything we planned and prepared for came out well,” said Yoon. “We still have a game tomorrow, but it feels like a dream to be in first place,” he said, adding, “I think we are creating an atmosphere where we can go even higher. We also have the 토토사이트 Korea Cup, but we will prepare well for both tournaments. I think we’ll be in a good mood with five straight wins.”

“I can only say thank you so much to the Chuncheon fans who made the home stadium sell out for the last home game. “Unfortunately, we have to go to Gangneung, but I hope that the Chuncheon fans will gather together in Gangneung and support us, so we will have a little more strength, and I think we will repay them with a good result,” he said.

He also said, “I think more people will be looking forward to Gangneung. We will prepare thoroughly to meet their expectations,” he vowed.

On the day, Kangwon scored three goals to lead Ulsan in scoring. When asked if he expected this, Yoon said, “Even though I’ve been practicing shooting, I’ve been finding 카지노사이트 순위 the back of the net more than before. Recently, as I kept scoring goals, the atmosphere of the team (improved), and in the first half, I had chances like Yang Min-hyuk and Yoo Yoo-soo, and although I didn’t score at that time, I was thinking that I would score,” he said confidently.

As for high school phenom Yang Min-hyuk, he said, “No one knows what the future holds. And no one knows what will happen tomorrow. Min-hyuk is doing a good job with the management part, and I think he’ll be a better player in the future if he works with the mindset that he’s not good enough. I think so. He’s doing so well right now, I’m just happy for him.”
