The Korean men’s soccer team’s quest for a podium finish at the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games has been given the green light. Uhm Won-sang (Ulsan), who was injured in the semifinal against Uzbekistan, participated in a light training session on Saturday (June 6).
Hwang Sun-hong’s men’s soccer team will face Japan in the tournament final on Sunday afternoon. It will be the second consecutive time they have met their rivals in the final. As it is their last match, they will be looking to go out with a bang.
Uhm Won-sang, who was ruled out of the match after suffering an injury against Uzbekistan on April 4, participated in training a day before the match to minimize the number of changes in the attacking lineup.
Uhm Won-sang showed up for the team’s final training session at the Huanglong Sports Center Auxiliary Stadium in Hangzhou, China. She stretched on the track outside the field before getting down to business.레고토토
Afterward, she did some light running around cones set up on the grass. However, she warmed up more carefully than her teammates, minimizing her running movements.
After her run, she exchanged passes with her teammates. After going down in the semifinals in a back tackle by Uzbekistan’s Ibrohimhalil Yuldashev, she complained of ankle and shin discomfort, but there was no sign of any leg problems in today’s training.
It’s good news for Hwang Sun-hong, who is looking to win his third straight title. He was stretchered off the field, and coach Hwang was cautious, raising the possibility of a power leak. Luckily, the team’s training on the day showed promise for the final.
Uhm Won-sang is an attacker with great speed. She is a key resource that can shake Japan’s flanks. If Uhm Won-sang can regain her full fitness by the final day, Japan will be looking to win the tournament’s first three consecutive titles.
