[골닷컴, 카타르 알라이얀] Reporter Kim Hyeong-joong = K-League top scorer Cho Gyu-seong had the World Cup start of his dreams.
The Korean national football team will play the second leg of the 2022 FIFA World Cup Group H qualifier against Ghana at the City Stadium in Al Rayyan, Qatar on the 28th at 10:00 pm (Korea time). After a draw against Uruguay, the national team is determined to increase their chances of progressing to the round of 16 by adding three points against Ghana. Ghana, who were unexpectedly defeated by Portugal in the first match, are expected to engage in an all-out war against Korea.
Coach Bento replaced three starters compared to the last match against Uruguay. First, Cho Kyu-seong was chosen instead of Hwang Ui-jo as the front line striker. The intention is to trust the killer instinct of K-League top scorer Cho Kyu-seong, in place of Hwang Eui-jo, who lost confidence after missing a golden opportunity in the match against Uruguay. Cho Kyu-seong was the top scorer of the 2022 K League with 17 goals. In the match against Uruguay, he was substituted and showed sharp shooting during the 20 minute run.
In addition, the number of personal social media (SNS) followers increased after the war against Uruguay. The image captured on the exchange screen is stealing the hearts of women around the world, and the number of followers, which used to be around 40,000, is now approaching 800,000. If he scores and roars against Ghana, more fans are expected to pay attention to him on social media.
In addition, coach Bento made Jung Woo-young and Kwon Chang-hoon, who play in Germany, as starters for the first time. Jung Woo-young will replace Lee Jae-seong, and Kwon Chang-hoon will take the position where Na Sang-ho played.
The other positions are the same as before Uruguay. Kim Seung-gyu wears gloves, and Kim Young-kwon, Kim Min-jae, Kim Moon-hwan, and Kim Jin-soo are on the back four. Hwang In-beom and Jung Woo-yeong are positioned in the midfield, and Son Heung-min is also selected as a left wing forward.
