The South Korea U-24 football team, led by Hwang Sun-hong, will take on Japan in the final of the Hangzhou 2022 Asian Games on Sunday at 9 p.m. ET at the Huanglong Sports Center Stadium in Hangzhou, China.
Korea is led by Lee Kwang-yeon in goal, with Park Kyu-hyun, Park Jin-seop, Lee Han-beom and Hwang Jae-won in the back line. Baek Seung-ho-hwa and Jung Ho-yeon were in the midfield, while Jung Woo-young, Lee Kang-in, and Ko Young-joon were in the second line. Cho Young-wook will play up front.
South Korea will be looking for a third consecutive Asian Games title in Hangzhou, a feat no other country has accomplished. Hwang Sun-hong will be aiming for his third consecutive gold medal, following Incheon in 2014 and Palembang in Jakarta in 2018.
The last time the two Koreas met in Jakarta, it was in the final. The Asian Games team, coached by Kim Hak-bum, won the final against Japan 2-1 thanks to back-to-back goals from Lee Seung-woo (Suwon FC) and Hwang Hee-chan (Wolverhampton). They were determined to keep the good momentum going this time around.
However, Japan opened the scoring in the first minute of play. Korea’s right flank broke down and a cross came in, which Japan’s Uchino finished with his right foot to give Japan the lead.
