‘Unscared’ Daejeon, 11 people sparked, pouring 16,000 pans with oil
Daejeon was not scared in front of the champion. It belongs, but I don’t think there’s a better way to describe it than this.
Daejeon Hana Citizen, led by coach Lee Min-seong, won 2-1 at Ulsan Hyundai in the 7th round of the Hana One Q K League 1 2023 held at Daejeon World Cup Stadium at 4:30 pm on the 16th. In Daejeon, Lee Jin-hyeon scored the first goal in the 9th minute of the first half, and Lee Hyun-sik shook the net in the 1st minute of extra time in the first half. In the 18th minute of the first half, Rubikson scored an equalizer for Ulsan, but there was no additional goal.
Daejeon did not back down against Ulsan. Ulsan, as the ‘defending champion’ and the current No. 1 team, used a strong squad and good offensive development, but suffered from the pressure of the match from the beginning of the first half. The ball turned sideways and did not easily extend.
It was Daejeon, which joined the K-League 1 as a promoted team this season, but the players were not discouraged. Daejeon coach Lee Min-seong hinted at what he emphasized to the players after the victory, saying, “I ordered the players to never get down and press from the front.”
The spectators poured oil as the players fired sparks. On this day, 16,359 spectators entered Daejeon. The early opening goal raised the mood, and the home stadium was set on fire as they took a 2-1 lead just before the end of the first half.
It was a virtuous cycle created by players and spectators. The performance was good, so the crowd reacted, which made the players go one step further. There was also plenty to see. At the end of the second half, goalkeeper Lee Chang-geun made a series of super saves, and the atmosphere reached its peak. 안전놀이터
For Ulsan coach Hong Myung-bo, the chance to set up a golden pagoda of 7 consecutive victories after the opening was lost. However, after the game, he said, “Both teams played a good game. It was a very fun game,” and said, “The game Daejeon showed will be a good precedent for the K-League.”
Both teams faced off with clean performances. In the 21st minute of the second half, Daejeon defender Kim Hyeon-woo collapsed due to muscle spasm in front of Won Won-suk, where Ulsan fans gathered. Ulsan fans who were being dragged booed, but Daejeon veterans Oh Jae-seok and Joo Se-jong put their hands together and apologized, and soon responded with applause.
The number one condition for attracting spectators to the stadium is victory and performance. Daejeon, which achieved promotion after 8 years, is achieving a major premise that will fill the stadium with fans at least at the beginning of the season. Retention is now the goal. Can the spreading flame burn without being extinguished?
