[STN뉴스] Reporter Hyeong-ju Lee = Korea has almost escaped the burdensome warning trouble.

Korea, led by coach Jurgen Klinsmann, won 2-1 after a fierce overtime struggle against Australia in the 2023 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Asian Cup Qatar quarterfinals held at Al Janoub Stadium in Al Wakrah, Qatar at 0:30 a.m. on the 3rd. Korea advanced to the semifinals and Australia was eliminated from the competition.

Victory that day was the most important, but there was something else just as important. It was a warning trouble. In this tournament, a player who receives two warnings in the group stage and round of 16 will miss one game. Those who received a warning were Son Heung-min, Kim Min-jae, Cho Kyu-seong, Park Yong-woo, Lee Ki-je, Hwang In-beom, Oh Hyun-gyu, Lee Jae-seong, Lee Kang-in, and Kim Young-kwon.

Therefore, while focusing on beating Australia, we had to play in a way that would avoid receiving warnings as much as possible. The warning was reset before the semifinals, so all I had to do was endure this game.

However, only one player, Kim Min-jae, was unable to participate in the semifinals due to an unfair warning. In the 45th minute of the second half, when we were down 0-1, the Australian player wasted time by not handing over the ball during a Korean free kick situation. A small scuffle broke out when Kim Min-jae tried to retrieve it, and he gave a warning about it. It was an unfair situation.

In the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) 2023 Qatar Asian Cup Round of 16 match between Saudi Arabia and Korea held at the Al Rayyan Education City Stadium in Qatar on the 30th (local time), Cho Gyu-sung scored an equalizer in the second half and coach Jurgen Klinsmann gave tactical instructions to Son Heung-min. there is.

The game ended without any further warnings. Warnings for 9 players except Minjae Kim were reset. It will not be easy to play in the semifinals without defensive leader Kim Min-jae, but one hurdle has been overcome.
