Kuwait draws with Bahrain… Hwang Sun-hong tops group with win over Thailand

Kuwait, who lost 0-9 to Hwang Sun-hong in the first match of the men’s soccer competition at the Hangzhou Asian Games, drew with Bahrain in the second match.

As a result, Hwang Sun-hong Ho needs only to beat his second opponent, Thailand, to clinch the top spot in Group 1 and advance to the Round of 16 after two games.

Kuwait drew 1-1 with Bahrain in the second leg of the tournament’s Group E match at the Jinhua Sports Center Stadium in China’s Zhejiang province on Wednesday afternoon, thanks to Salman Muhammad’s dramatic free kick in the 29th minute.

It was a hard-fought point for Kuwait (1-1), who had conceded nine goals to Hwang Sun-hong’s men on the 19th.

Meanwhile, Bahrain (2-0-2), who conceded in stoppage time in their previous match against Thailand to miss out on victory, were unable to defend their lead in this match and settled for a draw.

This means that if Hwang Sun-hong wins the next match against Thailand, he will have six points and a goal difference of four points with Bahrain. In this case, 카지노사이트 even if Hwang loses and Bahrain wins in the final Group E match, the standings of the two teams will not change.

The winner of Group E would advance to the round of 16 and face the runner-up in Group F, which includes North Korea, Indonesia, Kyrgyzstan, and Chinese Taipei.

This will be a different path for Hwang than his predecessor Kim Hak-Bum, who reached the round of 16 after finishing second in his group at the 2018 Jakarta-Palembang Asian Games.

Kim’s 6-0 victory over Bahrain in the first round was overshadowed by a shock loss to Malaysia in the second round (1-2), which led to a quarterfinal encounter with powerhouse Uzbekistan, which he narrowly won 4-3 in overtime to reach the quarterfinals.

After a 0-0 first half, the balance was broken in the seventh minute when Bahrain’s Hassan Ali rattled the net with a surprise strike from the right flank of the penalty area.

With the game seemingly in hand, Bahrain conceded in the 29th minute through Kuwait’s Muhammad.

From the back of the penalty area, Muhammad struck a free-kick into the bottom corner of the net to pull Kuwait back from the brink of defeat.

In the dying minutes of the match, as the tie grew closer, the impatient Bahraini players began to engage in rough behavior, leading to intense group nerves between players from both teams.

There were shouting matches on the bench, on the field and in stoppage time when Kuwait’s Faisal Alsahati tugged on his jersey and Farnair Almesaeid, unable to contain his anger, struck Alsahati in the back of the head with an elbow and was sent off. 슬롯게이밍

Hwang to lead Hong Hyun-seok, Seol Young-woo against Thailand…

With one win away from reaching the round of 16 at the Hangzhou Asian Games after topping their group, Hwang Seon-hong will lead ‘A’ squad members Hong Hyun-seok (Ghent) and Seol Young-woo (Ulsan) against Thailand.

Head coach Hwang Sun-hong has named two players in his starting lineup for the second Group E match of the tournament against Thailand at the Jinhua Sports Center Stadium in Zhejiang, China, on Wednesday afternoon.

Hong Hyun-seok is expected to partner captain Baek Seung-ho (Jeonbuk) in the midfield to support the attack.

Seol Young-woo will protect the back alongside Hwang Jae-won (Daegu), Park Jin-seop (Jeonbuk), and Lee Jae-ik (Seoul Eland).

Hong Hyun-seok and Seol Young-woo were called up by national team coach Jürgen Klinsmann ahead of the Asian Games and played in the September A-match schedule, only taking the field late in the first match against Kuwait.

Up front will be striker Park Jae-yong (Jeonbuk), who came on in the second half of the Kuwait game and got a taste of goal.

Ahn Jae-joon (Bucheon), Ko Young-joon (Pohang), and Uhm Won-sang (Ulsan) are the other K League strikers who will join Park in attacking the Thai goal.

The goalkeeping gloves will be worn by Lee Kwang-yeon, the goalkeeper of the K League 1 Gangwon FC.

‘Ace’ Lee Kang-in (Paris Saint-Germain), who arrived in Hangzhou this afternoon and finally joined the team, was left off the bench.

Earlier in the day, Kuwait and Bahrain drew 1-1, giving Hwang a chance to top the group and secure a spot in the round of 16.

A win over Thailand would take them to six points, and a loss in the final group game would not change their position in the standings with Bahrain (two points). 토토사이트

In his first start in 12 days, KIA’s Lee Yi-ri gives up 5 runs in 1⅓ innings due to pitching anxiety

KIA Tigers left-handed hard-throwing pitcher Lee Yi-ri took the mound for the first time in 12 days, but struggled with his pitches, leading to an early exit.

Lee started the game against the visiting Hanwha Eagles of the 2023 KBO at Hanwha Life Eagles Park in Daejeon on Nov. 21, but was pulled after giving up five runs (four earned) on two hits and three wild pitches in 1⅓ innings.

Lee, who was also selected to represent the Hangzhou Asian Games, made his return after being dropped from the first team roster due to a blister on his finger after the LG Electronics game on Sept. 9.

The first inning was a crisp start.

Lee retired Hanwha’s top three batters – Lee Jin-young, Choi In-ho, and Noh Si-hwan – on swinging strikes as KIA scored the first two runs.

Kim Kyu-sung hit a solo home run in the top of the second to give KIA a 3-0 lead.

However, in the bottom of the second inning, Lee suddenly started to falter.

After giving up a walk to Nick Williams and a hit by pitch to Chae Eun-sung, Lee was hit by an infield single from Kim Tae-yeon to load the bases.

After giving up a double to Jung Eun-won, who came in to pinch-hit, Lee induced Lee Do-yoon to ground into an infield single with runners on first and second, but the KIA infielders made a bad play on the play to tie the game at 3-3.

Unable to settle down, Lee walked the next batter, Choi Jae-hoon, and was eventually replaced by Yoon Jung-hyun.

KIA then scored two runs on a catcher’s fastball and a single to Hanwha’s Choi In-ho, increasing Lee’s liability to five runs.

Lee, who didn’t even finish the second inning but threw 45 pitches, had a top velocity of 147 kilometers per hour.

Ryu Joong-il, the head coach of the Asian Games team, who traveled to Daejeon and watched Lee’s pitching closely, is expected to be in deep trouble. 파워볼

AVC bronze medal in Hangzhou…Jung Jeong-seok “I watch and reflect every day”

The Korean men’s volleyball team’s ‘gun’ Jeong Ji-seok boarded the plane to Hangzhou with the bronze medal from the Asian Volleyball Confederation (AVC) Challenge Cup 2023.

The team’s goal was to put the bitter experience of being swept by Bahrain in the semifinals of the tournament in July behind them.

The team’s fifth-place finish at the Asian Championships in August shows how desperate Jeong is to showcase Korea’s volleyball prowess at the Hangzhou Asian Games.

On Nov. 21, Jeong led South Korea to a 3-0 straight-sets victory over Cambodia in their Group C preliminary round match at the Linping Sports Center in Hangzhou, China.

After being benched the day before due to back pain, Jung was not at full strength, but he gritted his teeth and scored the most points for both teams (11).

“I’m very upset that we didn’t perform well at the AVC Challenge Cup and the Asian Championships,” said Jeong, who was interviewed after the game. “I brought the bronze medal back to the athletes’ village and hung it on the front door to remind myself every time I look at it.”

He said the loss to India the day before was compounded by his absence from the court.

“It’s a feeling I’ve never experienced even with my own team. (The Asian Games were postponed for a year and we’re finally here,” he said, adding, “It was frustrating that I couldn’t just voice my desire.”

When asked what motivated him to fight through his injury, he immediately replied, “Because I’m a national team member.”

“Even though I took medicine this morning, (the pain) started to rise in the third set. I felt a little bit of pain when I bent my back to spike,” he said, but credited the good setters for trusting me and setting me up well.

With the loss the day before, the team lost the top spot in their group and were unable to avoid a bad draw. However, the players’ sense of purpose hasn’t changed.

“We were told that if we beat Cambodia, we would have to beat Pakistan, Qatar, and Iran (according to the bracket odds),” says Jeong, “so we said to each other, ‘It’s good. These are the opponents we need to beat to win the gold medal anyway,'” he said.

Veteran setter Han also emphasized confidence.

“The first set was tough today, but if the players believe in themselves a little more, they will play better,” Han said. “That’s the most important thing because a small difference in the moment can make the difference between a point and a mistake.”

After the previous day’s match, he told his juniors, “I thought it was going to be tough, but it’s just here now. We can do it no matter what, so don’t worry and believe in each other,” he said. 토토

Son-Heung-min-Holland-Ferguson…three hat tricks in one day for the first time in 28 years in the EPL

For the first time in 28 years, three players scored hat tricks on the same day in the English Premier League (EPL).

South Korean soccer icon Son Heung-min (Tottenham), current top striker Elling Holland (Manchester City), and Irish “God” Evan Ferguson (Brighton), born in 2004, are the main characters.

Son scored goals in the 16th, 18th, and 21st minutes to lead Tottenham to a 5-2 victory over Burnley in the fourth round of the 2023-2024 EPL at Turf Moor in Burnley, England, on Feb. 2 (local time).

Holland also rattled the net in the 13th and 25th minutes at home to Fulham on the same day, completing his hat-trick in stoppage time by finishing off a grounded cross from Sergio Gomes.

Behind Holland’s brace, Manchester City cruised to a 5-1 victory.

Ferguson was also on fire at home against Newcastle United.

After tasting a goal in the 27th minute, he rattled the net in the 20th and 25th minutes of the second half to complete a 3-1 win for Brighton & Hove Albion.

There has only been one previous occasion in the EPL where three hat tricks were scored on the same day, according to soccer record-keeping company Opta.

Robbie Fowler, Alan Shearer, and Tony Yeboah, who played for Liverpool, Blackburn Rovers, and Leeds United, scored a hat trick at the same time on September 23, 1995.

At the time, Liverpool beat Bolton Wanderers 5-2, Blackburn beat Coventry City 5-2, and Leeds defeated Wimbledon FC 4-2.

Son Heung-min repeated his hat trick of goals from last season to lead Tottenham to their third straight win. It was the fourth hat trick of his EPL career.

Manchester City also moved into sole possession of first place at the top of the table with an opening four-game winning streak.

With six goals in four games, Holland has moved to the top of the scoring charts. It was Holland’s fifth hat trick in the Premier League since last season.

Holland also scored 36 goals last season, setting the EPL record for most goals in a season and winning the title of top scorer.

Ferguson, who got the new season off to a flying start with a goal just before the end of the opening game against Luton Town (4-1), added three more goals to move into second place behind Holland. 안전카지노사이트

Rookie Hyo Joon Jang tied for second at LPGA Portland Classic 3R…

Rookie Hyo Joon Jang, 20, is tied for second place after the third round of the Portland Classic on the U.S. Women’s Professional Golf (LPGA) Tour ($1.5 million purse).

Jang carded 11 birdies against one bogey for a 10-under 62 on the third day of the tournament at Columbia Edgewater Country Club (par 72, 6,467 yards) in Portland, Oregon, USA.

With a midday total of 17-under 199, Jang moved up 23 spots in the standings to share second place with Channetee Wannasan (THA). They are one stroke behind leader Megan Kang (USA).

Jang, who moved to the United States at age 15, earned a spot on the LPGA Tour this season after finishing 10th on the LPGA’s secondary tour, the Epson Tour, last year.

While she hasn’t won on the Epson Tour, she has two runner-up finishes and ranks second in the division with 215 birdies.

Jang opened her third round with a blistering front nine that included six birdies in her first seven holes.

After making his only bogey on the ninth (par-4), Jang reeled off five birdies in the second half.

He chipped in for birdie at the 11th (par-4), dropped back-to-back long birdie putts at the 13th (par-3) and 15th (par-4), and sank a 4.5-meter putt at the 18th (par-4).

The 10-under par total is the lowest round of the tournament for Jang on the LPGA Tour.

Jang has struggled in seven events this season, missing the cut three times and withdrawing once. Her best finish was a tie for 61st at the Mizuho Americas Open in June.

According to the LPGA, Jang has been dealing with back pain that has kept her out of many tournaments.

“It was a day where everything went smoothly, from my driver to my irons to my putting,” Jang said, “I think the birdie on the last hole will be memorable, and I want to praise myself for not letting go and working hard until the end,” she reflected.

“I think the fact that I had to take a break for about two months because of my back was a turning point for me, and it gave me a springboard to work harder,” she said.

Playing in the same group as Kim Hyo-ju, he said, “I was so nervous to play with her because I admire her so much. It was so good and fun,” he recalled.

Other South Koreans to finish in the top 10 were Lee Im-hyang in a tie for 16th (11-under par 205) and Lee Jeong-eun in a tie for 23rd (10-under par 206).

Kim Hyo-joo was two strokes off the pace, combining three birdies and a bogey on the day to finish in a tie for 28th (9-under 207).

Leader Kang maintained her first- and second-round gains with a six-under-par 66 for the third straight day to move into sole possession of the lead. This gives her a green light to win back-to-back titles after winning the CPKC Women’s Open last week. 먹튀검증

Hanwha’s Moon Dong-ju makes last appearance before AG…

Hanwha Eagles native ace Moon Dong-ju will end the regular season with a three-day start.

This comes after he reached his career-high of 120 innings pitched to prevent injury.

Up until this point, Moon had pitched 114⅓ innings in 22 games with an 8-8 record and a 3.62 ERA.

After tonight’s game against the LG Twins at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul, the team will travel to Seosan Stadium for about three weeks to prepare for the Hangzhou Asian Games.

Moon is seen as a resource to protect the starting mound for a national team whose offense has been weakened by the injury departure of Lee Jung-hoo (Kiwoom Heroes).

“His pitch count could be around 100 pitches,” Hanwha coach Choi Won-ho told reporters, adding, “We will be flexible depending on the pitch and the game.”

“There’s no reason to keep him until the last 100 pitches, and there’s no reason to take him out early if he’s pitching well,” he explained.

The second-year fireballer’s longest inning in a game was eight innings against the NC Dinos in June.

In that game, Moon shut down the NC bats for two hits and no runs while striking out seven with a fastball that topped out at 158 kilometers per hour. He didn’t walk a single batter and was efficient with 90 pitches.

With plenty of time to rest after the game, it will be interesting to see if Moon can follow up his stellar performance with a complete game shutout.

“He’s not just throwing blindly hard (as before), but he’s controlling his strength and weakness and his delivery has improved a lot,” Choi said of Moon. 파워볼사이트

KT gets a boost…Kang Baek-ho likely to join first team next week

The KT Wiz, who are chasing the first-place LG Twins, are getting some key reinforcements.

Outfielder Kang Baek-ho (24), who has been away due to mental issues, will return.

“After today’s second-team game, I decided to call second-team coach Kim Ki-tae (to discuss the timing of his return),” KT manager Lee Kang-cheol said when asked about Kang’s return ahead of the team’s upcoming game against the Kiwoom Heroes of the 2023 Baseball World Series at Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul on Wednesday. “I think it would be good if he plays from the day after tomorrow (when the team begins a three-game series against the LG Twins).”

“I think we can use him as a pinch-hitter for now, and then use him (as a starter) when a spot opens up,” Lee said.

Kang Baek-ho has been extremely up and down this season, and hasn’t played well since suffering a mental trauma in June.

He briefly returned to the first team before being dropped again in late July.

After recovering, he went 1-for-4 in the Futures League against Sangmu on July 1 and 1-for-2 against Sangmu on July 2.

However, Kang is likely to remain a pinch-hitter for the first team for a while.

The designated hitter spot will be filled by Park Byung-ho, who is suffering from a sore calf, while the outfield is dominated by Kim Min-hyuk, Choi Jae-dae, and Anthony Alford.

Kang Baek-ho is expected to be utilized as a joker in the second half of the game when a ‘one-hitter’ is needed.

KT also has some reinforcements. Shortstop Kim Sang-soo is back after being sidelined with an ankle sprain.

KT plans to play the three-game series against LG with full strength.

KT has announced a full-strength lineup for the three-game series against LG. The team also announced three key pitchers, William Cuevas, Wes Benjamin, and Ko Young-pyo, as starters.

Second-place KT trails LG by 5.5 games through two days. 토토사이트

Kim Hyo-Joo ‘2 strokes back’ for second runner-up finish of LPGA season

Kim Hyo-Joo (김효주) used a scary back nine to claim her second runner-up finish of the season.

The South Korean carded seven birdies and no bogeys for a 7-under 65 in the final round of the Ladies Professional Golf (LPGA) Tour’s Freddie Mac Scottish Women’s Open ($2 million purse) at Dundonald Links (par-72) in Ayrshire, Scotland, on Sunday (July 7). With a final total of 13-under-par 275, Kim finished in a tie for second place, two strokes behind Celine Boutier (FRA – 15-under 273). It was Kim’s second runner-up finish of the season and seventh top-10 finish, following her victory at the ShopRite Classic in June.

With the final major of the season, the AIG Women’s Open, set to begin on Tuesday at Walton Heath Golf Club in Surrey, England, Kim is well on her way to earning her first victory of the season in a major.

Kim, who began her fourth round in a seven-shot tie for ninth place, made her first birdie of the day at the par-5 third before dropping another shot at the par-5 fifth. She added a birdie at the eighth (par-4) to reach 3-under for the round. The second round was just as hot. He added a birdie at the 11th (par-3), followed by back-to-back birdies at the 13th (par-4) and 14th (par-5) to move into second place. He parred the next three holes, but birdied the 18th (par-5) to finish in a tie for second.

Kim, who was playing with a sore foot, said, “I just put it down and played. “I set a goal to shoot 4-under par, but I’m happy that I did better than that,” she said. “I will continue the good feeling in the next tournament (the AIG Women’s Open),” she said, “but most importantly, I will try to improve my physical condition and finish with a good score in good shape.” 먹튀검증
