Korean men’s hockey defeated its tough enemy Malaysia and gave the green light to advance to the semifinals of the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games.
Korea, led by coach Shin Seok-kyo, defeated Malaysia 4-3 in the 4th game of Group B of the men’s hockey group stage held at the Archer Canal Sports Park in Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province, China on the 30th.
With 3 wins and 1 loss, Korea has a greater chance of winning a ticket to the semifinals,
which is given to second place in the group. 먹튀검증
In Group B, Korea, Malaysia, and China are considered the ‘final three’,
but Korea lost 2-3 to China two days ago and had to win today to advance to the semifinals.
Since Malaysia was ranked 10th and Korea was 13th in the world rankings,
the power difference made it difficult for us to guarantee victory in today’s game.
Korea, tied 3-3, allowed a penalty stroke to Malaysia with about 7 minutes left in the fourth quarter,
but goalkeeper Kim Jae-hyeon (Seongnam City Hall) made a save and overcame the crisis.
On the contrary, Korea scored the winning goal by Yang Ji-hoon (Gimhae City Hall) scoring a penalty stroke with 5 minutes remaining.
Malaysia immediately scored the tying goal and cheered,
but we were lucky that a foul was called before the goal was scored and the match was ruled invalid.
As a result, Korea will be able to advance to the semifinals if it wins the final group match against Oman on October 2.
If Korea defeats Oman, they will have 4 wins and 1 loss, and if China wins or draws in the Malaysia-China game held on this day,
China will take first place in the group and Korea will advance to the semifinals in second place.
Also, if Malaysia defeats China, Korea, Malaysia, and China will have 4 wins and 1 loss.
In this case, goal difference is considered, and the current goal difference is +20 for Korea,
+25 for Malaysia, and +15 for China.
A case in which goal difference is considered is when Korea beat Oman and China lost to Malaysia.
In terms of goal difference, Korea will be ahead of China and will be at least second in the group.
