The under-24 (U-24) soccer team led by head coach Hwang Seon-hong won a friendly match against China held at Jinhua Stadium in Zhejiang Province, China on the 15th.

The match on this day was a match in which the two countries competed to test each other’s strength ahead of the Hangzhou Asian Games in September. From the standpoint of Korea, it was a stage that also served as a pre-adaptation for winning the Asian Games three times in a row. The result was a predicted easy victory for Korea. Korea will return to Korea after playing against China one more time at the same place on the 19th.

Korea struggled in the first half. China, who acknowledged the difference in skill, ran wildly while encamped in dense defense, and could not find a way to break through.

However, with the start of the second half, the atmosphere changed 180 degrees when two national team players, including Um Won-sang, who is called the best winger in the K-League, and Jung Woo-young, who is steadily gaining experience in the German Bundesliga, stepped forward.

In the 5th and 8th minutes of the second half, Um Won-sang received a back pass and scored consecutive goals, and in the 14th minute of the second half, Jung Woo-young played with the opponent’s defense from the right edge of the penalty area and put in a fantastic right-footed diagonal shot.

Afterwards, China managed to score a goal and avoid the worst humiliation by linking a cross that crossed the goal line into a goal under the referee’s ‘connivance’.

However, Korea’s opponents were not far behind in terms of the content and results of the match. If director Hwang made up his mind and put in the best members from the first half, ‘massacre’ was a game at a level that was sufficiently possible. China lost in manners as well, with Eom Won-sang, who scored a goal in China’s rough ‘Shaolin Soccer’, being carried away during the game.

It was to the point where I thought that 1.5 billion continents could not play soccer like this. In the 2010s, China invested heavily in professional football with President Xi Jinping’s ‘soccer rise’ at the forefront. By attracting world-class players who are currently in their prime with the power of huge amounts of money, they worked hard to revive football and raised the fever.

As a result, even Chinese players were hit with money, which spurred the league’s success. There were also players like Wu Ray who were recognized for their skills and advanced to Spanish La Liga. Large-scale soccer schools were established across the country, and coach Marcello Lippi, who won Italy in the 2006 World Cup Germany, was brought in and entrusted with the national team.

However, ‘Xi Jinping’s soccer prowess’ was like a sandcastle without a foundation. In particular, as China’s real estate economy collapsed after Corona 19, parent companies in the Chinese Super League, which were in an emergency to repay real estate PF loans, went bankrupt like autumn leaves. At the same time, even the winning team suffered the tragedy of being disbanded, and Guangzhou Hengda, which won the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Champions League (ACL) twice, changed its name to Guangzhou FC and became small and shabby.

The twists and turns of Chinese football were revealed in the confrontation with Hwang Seon-Hong-Ho. Unlike Korea, China, in particular, had three wild cards under the age of 24, including frontline striker Tan Long, but showed skills that are no different from Asian mid-tier teams in terms of individual skill, organization, team spirit, and concentration.

It may change immediately in the second match and the Hangzhou Asian Games, but the cruelty of Chinese football, which cannot be solved with money, was clearly demonstrated in this evaluation match..
