Hwang Sun-Hong's 'good news' ahead of Korea-Japan match... Japan's starting center back misses out with red card

Japan's Nishio is kicked out of the China match due to elbow damage... According to the regulations, you cannot appear in at least 2 games.

Hwang Sun-hong, who is attempting to advance to the Olympic finals for the 10th time in a row, encountered a 'good news' in the departure of Japan's main defender in the third match of the group stage. 온라인카지노

The Korean national under-23 (U-23) soccer team, led by coach Hwang Sun-hong, added time in the second half of the first leg of Group B of the 2024 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) U-23 Asian Cup group stage held in Doha, Qatar on the 17th (Korean time).

Lee Young-jun (Gimcheon)'s golden header and winning goal gave the team a 1-0 victory over the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

Hwang Sun-hong, who started the tournament in good spirits with a win in the first game, is now facing the Korea-China and Korea-Japan matches.

The match against Japan, which has shown a strong performance against Korea recently, is definitely a burdensome match.

Meanwhile, the fact that Japan's starting center back Ryuya Nishio (Cereso Osaka) will miss the Korea-Japan match can be said to be good news for Korea.

Nishio was sent off for a ridiculous foul in the 17th minute of the first half of the first game between Japan and China, which was held prior to the Korea-UAE game.

He elbowed a Chinese player who was following him, and the referee conducted a VAR on-field review and immediately issued a red card.

The situation wasn't that urgent, but the war of nerves got too intense and it turned into the worst situation.

Despite being outnumbered, Japan defended the first goal scored in the 8th minute of the first half and won.

However, we faced a situation where we had to play at least 2-3 games without Nishio.

According to the AFC disciplinary code, a player who is immediately red carded and sent off for a serious foul will be suspended for at least two games.

If a player engages in violent behavior such as elbowing, punching, or kicking an opponent, he or she will be subject to a suspension of at least 3 games or 2 months.
In the end, Nishio will miss at least two games.

This means that he will not be able to play in both the second match against UAE and the third match against Korea.

Japanese media Gekisaka mentioned the possibility of a suspension of at least three games due to violent behavior and predicted, "If there are no extenuating circumstances, even if he receives the lightest punishment, he will not be able to participate until the quarterfinals."

Nishio, 22 years old this year, is a defender with outstanding skills who made his J1 League debut in the 2021 season when he was 19 years old and played in 31 league games that year.

Korea and Japan will face off at 10 PM on the 22nd.

Hwang Seon-hong can confirm his advancement to the quarterfinals if he wins the second game against China at 10 p.m. on the 19th, but if he beats Japan and takes first place in the group, there is a high possibility that he will face an easier opponent in the tournament.

This competition also serves as the final qualifier for the 2024 Paris Olympics.

Up to 3rd place wins a direct ticket to Paris, and the 4th place team must win the intercontinental playoffs to go to Paris.
