China vs Lebanon, Ko Hyung-jin’s referee assignment → China is worried, “How much yellow card will the Korean referee give?”

Korea Football Association (KFA) referee Ko Hyung-jin will take charge of the match between China and Lebanon. China and Lebanon will play the second Group A match of the 2023 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Asian Cup at Altumama Stadium in Doha, Qatar, at 8:30 p.m. on the 17th (Korea time).

AFC has revealed the referees who will run the matches between the two teams. Referees Ko Hyung-jin will serve as the referee. Referees Kim Jung-min and Park Sang-joon will serve as assistant judges. Video assistant referee Kim Jong-hyuk of South Korea will also be in charge of VAR. 토토사이트 추천

A large number of Korean referees are active in the tournament. In the first Group D match between Japan and Vietnam on the 14th, referee Kim Jong-hyuk was the referee and referee Ko Hyung-jin was the VAR referee.

China’s Sina Sports reported on the assignment of Korean referees. Upon hearing the news, a Chinese soccer fan expressed concern, saying, “Let’s guess how many yellow cards Korean referees will give to China tomorrow.”

Concerns are growing over China as it tied with Tajikistan, which is considered the weakest team, without a score in the first match. China can increase its chances of advancing to the tournament only when it wins the second match against Lebanon. As the third match is against Qatar, its home team, the match against Lebanon is very important.

Only Wang Sang-yuan (Henan FC) of China, which is known for its toughness, received a yellow card in the first match. However, chances are high that China will collect multiple cards in the second match, as it is expected to be a close match against Lebanon, which lost to Qatar in the first match.

Korean soccer fans are also expected to pay attention to the game. This is because Chinese referee Marning took out five yellow cards to Korean players in the first group match between Korea and Bahrain on the 15th.

“It was a tough game. It was because the Chinese referee gave too many yellow cards from too early on,” coach Jurgen Klinsmann complained after the match against Bahrain.
