Coach Kim said in an interview with the Korea Football Association, “We had a numerical advantage, but it was difficult to score goals as Honduras lowered the line a lot. I had a good chance, but I couldn’t calm down. There were many scoring opportunities, but it’s a pity.”
“Park Seung-ho’s injury is an unexpected part, so we have to watch his condition first. Still, we don’t think too much because we have the resources. We will prepare well for the next match.”
Korea’s last opponent is Gambia. They beat both Honduras and France to confirm their advance to the round of 16 first in Group F. From the perspective of Korea, where the defense’s power leaks a lot, Gambia’s offensive power, which scored more than two goals in every game, is quite a burden.
But you can’t back down. If Korea loses to Gambia, a red flag may be turned on for advancing to the round of 16 depending on the results of the match against France and Honduras. It is a game against Gambia that must be won with an attitude of unconditional victory.
