[Asian Games] ‘Booing’ Just by Catching the Ball… Hwang Sun-Hong-ho Fought Despite Cheering From 50,000 Spectators
In the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games men’s soccer quarterfinals,
‘Hwangseonhongho’, who met the host country China, faced the support of about 50,000 spectators.
The Asian Games soccer team, led by coach Hwang Seon-hong,
played the quarterfinals against China at the Huanglong Sports Center Stadium in Hangzhou, China, on the 1st. 카지노사이트
Hwang Seon-hong, who played in Jinhua on the outskirts of Hangzhou from the group stage to the round of 16 against Kyrgyzstan,
moved to the stage for the first time in this tournament and took part in the game.
Jinhua Stadium, which has a capacity of about 30,000 seats,
had the largest gathering of around 19,000 people when the Korean game was held this year.
However, the Huanglong Sports Center Stadium, where the match against China was held on this day,
was much larger with about 50,000 seats, and the opponent was also the home team of China,
so Hwang Seon-hong played a match that advanced to the semifinals in a very different atmosphere than before.
On this day, China’s biggest holiday, National Day,
the Huanglong Sports Center Stadium was packed as expected.
The quarterfinal match between Uzbekistan and Saudi Arabia was held here five hours before the match between Korea and China,
the excitement was so strong that nearly 40,000 people showed up for the match.
Even though it was not their country’s game, the Chinese fans filled the stands and even ‘climbed the waves’.
Naturally, their cheers were several times louder during the subsequent Korea-China game.
With about an hour left before the start of the game, as the players came out to warm up,
China’s unique ‘Cheer Up’ cheering began to resonate in earnest.
A cheering competition using stick balloons was also held.
There was a lot of booing towards Korea.
There were boos from the moment the Korean national anthem was played during the national anthems of both teams,
after the game started, boos erupted every time a Korean player caught the ball.
There were some Korean fans holding Taegeukgi in the middle of the stands,
but the sound of the Chinese fans, who were overwhelming in number, was mostly loud.
However, Korea scored two goals in the first half alone, putting cold water on the heat.
