Seol Young-woo thought that director Hong Myung-bo’s words were irrelevant to him.
Ulsan Hyundai won a 3-2 victory over Suwon Samsung in the 14th round of the Hana 1 Q K League 1 2023 held at Suwon World Cup Stadium at 6:00 pm on the 21st. Ulsan, who earned 3 points, maintained first place in the league and widened the gap with FC Seoul in second place to 13 points.
Ulsan took the lead with an early goal. In the 6th minute of the first half, Seol Young-woo looked inside from the right side of the box and raised a sharp cross, and Rubikson, who was waiting at the gate, put it in with a direct left-footed volley shot. I thought I would be able to manage the game leisurely, but after scoring the opening goal, Ulsan conceded an equalizer to Ahn Byeong-jun in the third minute.
Ulsan continued to tap. Jumin-gyu’s header in the 27th minute of the first half, Joo Min-gyu’s left-footed shot in front of the goal in the 32nd minute, and Rubikson’s header hitting the post in the 40th minute of the first half, there were several chances to score. It was Kim Young-kwon’s mid-range wonder goal that broke through the frustrating situation.
Afterwards, Ulsan allowed Lee Ki-je to equalize in the second half, but at the end of the second half, Seol Young-woo tripped and fell to Lee Sang-min in the box, and Martin Adam succeeded in the declared penalty kick, ending the game 3-2.
After the game, I met Seol Young-woo in the Mixed Zone. Seol Young-woo said, “I always think that away games are not easy, but today the opponent was strong. We prepared well, but we did not expect it to be such a tough game. I am happy that the players did not give up even in a difficult game and won with the score that came out at the end.” He said about the game.
On this day, Seol Young-woo helped Rubikson’s opening goal and earned a penalty kick that decided the game. In addition to this, Seol Young-woo attempted a sharp-winding shot with his left foot from the right side of the box in the 26th minute of the first half, but it hit the post and swallowed regret. It is Seol Young-woo who not only recorded the attack point, but also performed well in the offensive aspect throughout the game.
In the previous press conference, coach Hong Myung-bo talked about Kim Young-kwon’s goal and said that he ordered the players to shoot aggressively before entering the game. When I brought up this story, Seol Young-woo said, “The coach said that, but I thought it had nothing to do with me.” I thought I would like to try it,” he said.
Seol Young-Woo is right-footed, but his shooting was attempted with his left foot. Seol Young-woo said, “It’s still difficult to use my left foot. But last year, I played a lot on the left and tried to use my left foot, so I think it’s more comfortable than last year.”
Seol Young-woo continued, 스포츠토토“Anyway, our team has tall players like Martin Adam and Min Kyu-hyung who are good at headers, but I missed a lot of cross timing when playing on the left side. It is comfortable for the strikers to come out, and I think I have a lot of opportunities to record attack points.”
Overall, he played a good game, but Seol Young-woo was cold-hearted in his evaluation of his own performance. Seol Young-woo said, “Personally, I think it’s good for the attack point or the penalty kick. However, looking at the game as a whole, I’m still unsatisfied because I made a few mistakes that I shouldn’t have made. I don’t think soccer is over with one game.” “There are still league matches ahead, and we have to prepare for the FA Cup. Today, I’m off the pitch, so I want to forget about it.”
