The scene in which the players of the Korean national soccer team gathered on the ground after a come-from-behind victory and watched the game between Uruguay and Ghana on their mobile phones, earnestly wishing for a quick end, was selected as one of the ‘Top 10 Scenes’ of this World Cup.

Reuters, which announced on the 18th a selection of 10 famous scenes from the 2022 Qatar World Cup, said, “Hwang Hee-chan’s reverse winning goal in the second half of extra time was the beginning of a rather difficult wait. The Korean players had to gather in the center of the stadium and watch the game between Uruguay and Ghana for about 10 minutes on their mobile phones.”

On the 3rd of this month, our national team played against Portugal in the third group H match, and lost a goal early in the game, but Kim Young-kwon equalized the score in the first half, and Hwang Hee-chan received a kill pass stabbed by Son Heung-min after dribbling in the second half extra time. He scored a come-from-behind goal to secure a dramatic 2-1 victory.

With 1 win, 1 draw and 1 loss (4 points), there was a high possibility of advancing to the round of 16 in second place, but the Uruguay-Ghana match held at the same time did not end, so we had to watch the results nervously. At that time, Uruguay was winning 2-0, so both points and goal difference were equal with Korea, but we were able to advance to the round of 16 ahead in terms of multiple points.

However, if Uruguay scored one more goal, Uruguay would advance to the round of 16 instead of South Korea, so the tension could not be relaxed. Uruguay made a series of offensive attacks until the end of the game, but no more goals were scored, and Korea confirmed its advance to the round of 16. The Korean players, who were standing around the ground, gazing at their mobile phones with their arms around them, cheered to their heart’s content and performed a ‘sliding ceremony’ of joy.메이저놀이터

Goalkeeper Kim Seung-gyu recalled that time and said, “It was one second too long. I really felt that time could not go by like this.”

Japan was also named in two of the top 10 scenes. In Group E, dubbed the ‘Group of Death’, Japan produced a surprise by defeating soccer powerhouses Germany and Spain 2-1 to advance to the round of 16. These scenes were included in the top 10 scenes of this World Cup selected by Reuters.

In addition, Lionel Messi (Argentina) beat the opposing defender with an exquisite dribble and assisted the key goal in the semi-final against Croatia, rival Cristiano Ronaldo (Portugal) was sent off after losing the quarter-final against Morocco, and Shin Sung Kilian Eum The scene in which Bape (France) scored multiple goals in the round of 16 against Poland was also selected as one of the top 10 scenes.
