In the second round of the Under-20 World Cup group stage, the Korean national team drew 2-2 against Honduras.
Kim Yong-hak’s men were looking to ride the momentum of their win over France and make it two wins in a row, but it didn’t start well.
In the 17th minute, Choi Hyun-seok’s foul was declared a penalty after video review, giving Honduran Ochoa the lead.
But it was Kim Yong-hak who changed the momentum.
Kim Yong-hak, who had previously scored an assist against France with a storming dribble on a counter-attack, was on the attack again, this time at breakneck speed, finding the Honduran goal.
He also created a number of good chances with his sharp left-footed shot.
The long-awaited goal came in the 13th minute of the second half.
Lee Yong-hak converted a ball from Lee Young-joon with a left-footed shot to make it a one-goal game, and four minutes later, the equaliser finally arrived.
However, on a golden counter-attack opportunity in stoppage time, Kim Yong-hak was left to lament the timing of his pass.메이저사이트
