“We have the strength to endure.”
Cheonan City FC head coach Park Nam-yeol smiled. Gyeongnam FC and Cheonan, both on the road, were unable to draw. Gyeongnam and Cheonan drew 1-1 in the 27th round of the ‘Hana OneQ K League 2 2023’ at the Changwon Football Center on the 21st. After Cheonan’s Lee Kwang-joon scored the first goal in the 40th minute from a corner kick to take the lead, Gyeongnam equalized in the 25th minute through Park Min-seo’s goal after receiving a cross from Gleason. Gyeongnam, who were looking to make a push for the top spot, were looking for three points against bottom-placed Cheonan, but came up short. Gyeongnam had to settle for third place with 42 points, overtaking Gimpo FC on goal difference. Cheonan succeeded in breaking their three-game losing streak against powerhouse Gyeongnam.
In the post-match press conference, Park said, “I want to thank the players for working hard on a hot day. Thank you for defending and holding on. One mistake led to a goal. The defense made one mistake and we ate it. It gave us the strength to endure. I think we can look at it positively. In the next home game, we will be more aggressive and try to score.”
Park made another substitution for Yoon Yong-ho, who came on in the second half. “It was for three points. It’s not that Yoon Yong-ho didn’t play well, but he wasn’t able to maneuver defensively, so we tried to get the last three points through Damir, so we made a substitution.” “He made some mistakes, but I’m grateful to him for overcoming them and making the saves,” Park said of goalkeeper Kim Min-jun, who had a stellar performance. 토토사이트
