[GOAL LIVE] Director Seol Ki-hyun’s number of wins… Threeback failed, but ‘victory’ was taken

Director Seol Ki-hyun’s three-back card failed, but resulted in victory.

[골닷컴, 창원] Reporter Choi Dae-hoon = Gyeongnam FC manager Seol Ki-hyun attempted a three-back in the match against Daejeon Hana Citizen, but unfortunately it failed. However, the number of matches that went back to failure resulted in ‘victory’.

Gyeongnam won the home match of the 2022 Hana One Q K-League 2 round 33 against Daejeon 2-1 at the Changwon Soccer Center at 7 pm on the 17th. With this victory, Gyeongnam added three points and moved to fifth place (41 points) in the league in place of Asan in Chungnam.

Gyeongnam started the game difficult by conceding a goal to Leandro in the 4th minute of the first half, but in the second half, they showed good performance and won 2-1 against ‘Kangho’ Daejeon thanks to consecutive goals from Thiago and Ko Kyung-min.

Manager Seol Ki-hyun came out with a three-bag against Daejeon, who placed 3rd in the league. It was the game of coach Seol Ki-hyun, who usually uses the 4-4-2 formation and plays offensive football using tall strikers based on accurate kicks.

In a press conference before the match, coach Seol Ki-hyun said, “Players like Willian and Leandro are good at counter-attacking. There is,” he said, explaining the background for changing his tactics ahead of the Great War.

In this way, Gyeongnam formed a midfield that led to Kim Se-yoon, Castro, Lee Kwang-jin, Mo Jae-hyun, and Lee Jun-jae, along with the three-backed by Park Jae-hwan, Kim Young-chan, and Kim Myung-jun. Since Thiago and Eliardo, the tall twin towers of Gyeongnam, which boast high height, were located at the forefront, Director Seol Ki-hyun’s idea seemed appropriate.

Unfortunately, the match went against the wishes of coach Seol Ki-hyun. Gyeongnam, who allowed a goal in the first 4 minutes of the game, had a difficult time developing the attack. Aside from the momentum going to Daejeon, Gyeongnam’s pass was very inaccurate.

Lee Kwang-jin, who was usually in charge of playmaking with Lee Woo-hyuk, was not very good, recording an 82% pass success rate, probably because Gyeongnam’s midfield was pushed back in the midfield fight against Daejeon. Mo Jae-hyeon, who took on the role of Lee Kwang-jin’s partner, was not able to launch a cool attack as usual, probably because it was not the right clothes for him, and was sluggish with Lee Kwang-jin with a pass success rate of 81%.

Gyeongnam managed to keep the pass and shoot several times, but there were hardly any threatening scenes throughout the first half. In the end, the first half ended with a one-point lead from Daejeon.

At the beginning of the second half, director Seol Ki-hyun returned to the back with Lee Min-ki and Lee Woo-hyuk, excluding Kim Se-yoon and Park Jae-hwan. Then Gyeongnam showed a performance opposite to that of the first half like a lie. Daejeon didn’t seem to be able to adapt to Gyeongnam’s change in tactics, and Gyeongnam almost scored an equalizing goal at the beginning of the second half. Eventually, Thiago scored a penalty in the 24th minute of the second half and Ko Kyung-min scored in the 38th minute of the second half.

After the match, manager Seol Ki-hyun admitted that the three-back card had failed. However, thanks to Seol Ki-hyun’s number of wins, Daejeon could be shaken, and thanks to that, we were able to secure a victory from an unsuspecting opponent.

Manager Lee Min-seong said that he did not properly respond to Gyeongnam’s change in tactics, implying that he was responsible for the defeat. The three-back card that coach Seol Ki-hyeon drew in the match ended in failure, but the result was a victory.
