China advanced to the quarterfinals by beating Qatar 1-0 in the round of 16 at the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games held at Huanglong Sports Center Stadium in Hangzhou, China, at 8:30 p.m. on the 27th. The opponent they will meet in the quarterfinals is Hwang Sun-hong, who beat Kyrgyzstan 5-1 at the same time. 온라인카지노
China scored the first goal three minutes into the match. In the third minute of the first half, Dao Changlong finished a cross from the right with a strong header and cut the net.
This goal became the winning goal. China has since used side attacks to tap Qatar’s goal, but failed to score an additional goal. There was also a commotion that one player from both teams was sent off after the squad collided in extra time in the second half, but the match ended with China’s 1-0 victory.
In the end, Hwang Sun-hong fought with China for a ticket to the semifinals. It is an unwelcome news for Korea, which dreams of winning three consecutive tournaments. It is clear that China is a lower opponent than Hwang Sun-hong, but it is also true that it is somewhat burdensome considering the home advantage, including the enthusiastic support of home fans.
China also benefited from the referee’s decision in the match against Qatar. The extra time in the second half was given six minutes, but in fact, about three minutes went by without progressing the game. The teams of both teams collided in one place, colliding with the coaching staff, and warnings were issued in large numbers. On top of that, a Chinese goalkeeper suddenly collapsed and complained of muscle pain, delaying the game.
Nevertheless, the referee blew the whistle at the end of the game about 6 minutes and 30 seconds after the extra time. If time is dragged in extra time, it is common to finish the game considering that time, but the referee finished the game like a knife. The angry Qatari players approached the referee and protested strongly, and after the game, benches from both teams gathered.
There is no guarantee that Hwang Sun-hong will not go through similar things. Basically, the referee’s decision should be recognized that it is very likely to benefit the Chinese side and enter the stadium.
In addition, there is no VAR in this competition. South Korea had already lost a goal in the round of 16 against Kyrgyzstan due to a disappointing referee decision. In the 32nd minute of the first half, Jung Woo-young received Lee Kang-in’s fantastic penetration pass and scored the net, but offside was declared. As a result of checking on a slow screen, the opposing defender seemed to be ahead of Jung Woo-young, but he could not even check properly because there was no VAR system.
China’s rough play, called “Shaolin Soccer,” should also be wary. China committed a rather dangerous foul from the beginning of the game, but the referee rarely took out the card. More than ever, it is expected that the game requires maintaining composure.
South Korea has already learned a painful lesson from two warm-up matches with China in June. The result of the game was also shocking with 3-1 victory in the first game and 0-1 loss in the second game, but the players’ line injuries were more painful. Eom Won-sang returned home early with a ligament injury, and Cho Young-wook and Ko Young-joon were replaced due to injuries. Hwang Sun-hong can continue the green light to challenge for the gold medal only when he safely passes China’s “Dirty Play,” the No. 1 target for vigilance.
