Jeju beat Suwon 2-0 and escaped their 4th straight loss... ‘Green light’ to remain in K League 1

Seoul lost 2-1 to Gangwon

Professional soccer K-League 1 Jeju United beat 'bottom place' Suwon Samsung, escaping from a slump of 4 consecutive losses, and gave the green light to 'remain in the 1st division'.

Jeju won 2-0 in the home game between Suwon and Hana One Q K League 1 2023 Final B Round 34 held at Jeju World Cup Stadium on the 22nd, led by back-to-back goals from Kim Geon-woong and Yuri Jonatan.

9th place Jeju (38 points), who recently lost 4 games in a row and had no wins in 7 consecutive games (1 draw, 6 losses), widened the gap to 7 points with 10th place Suwon FC (31 points), which had played one less game.

As the Maginot Line of K League 1, which can avoid the promotion playoffs (PO) with K League 2 teams, is 9th, Jeju increased its chances of remaining in the first division with today's victory. 온라인카지노

On the other hand, 'last place' Suwon (25 points) failed to accumulate points, and the shadow of 'relegation to the second division' became even darker.

Jeju scored first with a promised set play in the 3rd minute of the first half.

When Haines sent a right corner kick low toward the goal, Choi Young-jun slightly changed direction from the right side of the goal area and sent the ball toward the penalty arc, and Kim Geon-woong shook the goal net with a left-footed shot without delay.

Jeju replaced Kwak Seung-min with Yuri Jonatan in the 23rd minute of the first half, and this substitution led to an additional goal.

In the 26th minute of the first half, Yuri Jonatan jumped up from the left side of the goal area and scored with a header when Lee Ki-hyuk crossed from the right side of the penalty area.

Yuri Jonatan held a goal celebration 3 minutes after entering the field.

Suwon tried to open Jeju's goal in the second half, but suffered a permanent defeat due to their chronic lack of finishing.

At Seoul World Cup Stadium, 7th place FC Seoul (50 points) won 2-1 over 11th place Gangwon FC (26 points).

Gangwon, who failed to win for the fourth time in four games (2 draws, 2 losses) due to the loss on this day, remained in an uneasy 11th place, one point behind Suwon, the lowest ranked team.

The initial attack was led by Seoul.

In the 6th minute of the first half, Ki Sung-yueng's powerful mid-distance gun headed straight for the goalkeeper, and Na Sang-ho and Willian targeted Gangwon's back space several times, but the finish was disappointing.

In the 31st minute of the first half, Lee Si-young's right-footed shot from the left side of the penalty area slightly missed the right side of Gangwon's goal.

Gangwon-do, who were on the defensive, attempted a counterattack with Gabriel and Gallego at the end of the first half, but to no avail.

Seoul, which finished the first half scoreless, finally scored in the 7th minute of the second half.

In the 6th minute of the second half, Ki Sung-yong won a free kick in front of the penalty arc, and Na Sang-ho's right-footed shot as a kicker hit the defensive wall, deflected slightly, and went into the right side of Gangwon's goal.

Seoul gave up an equalizer to Gabriel in the 31st minute of the second half during a counterattack by Gangwon, but in the 34th minute of the second half, 'veteran striker' Ji Dong-won scored a header and won the game.

British Power Analysis Agency Helps African Teams [sport]

British power analysis agency helps African teams with soccer game ‘Football Manager’

There has actually been a case where the popular soccer simulation game ‘Football Manager’ was used to help strengthen the African national team.

On the 16th (local time), the British daily Guardian introduced the case of Jack Coles, a power analyst in the English Professional Football Championship (second division), who voluntarily cooperated with the Guinea-Bissau national football team in West Africa.

Coles said that while playing Football Manager, he learned that there were many players from all over the world who had dual citizenship due to reasons such as their parents' immigration.

Coles told the Guardian, "At first, I was looking into the relationship between Curaçao and the Netherlands, and then I realized that there are a lot of people with multiple nationalities."

He said that he discovered Guinea-Bissau while looking for the country that would benefit most from gathering players from all over the world. 바카라사이트

In fact, the Dutch territory of Curaçao has recently significantly strengthened its national team by taking advantage of the dual nationality system of the International Federation of Football Associations (FIFA).

According to FIFA regulations, if a player has no history of playing for the adult national team, he or she may, subject to conditions, play for a national team formed by a soccer association of another nationality.

Coles is said to have contacted the Guinea-Bissau Football Association through the recruitment and employment platform LinkedIn and offered to hand over the data he had obtained through Football Manager and the list of players he had contacted.

The Guinea-Bissau Football Association expressed doubts as to why a British man with no connections would provide help for free, but soon accepted Coles' offer, the Guardian reported.

Football Manager is a game where gamers become managers and manage a team.

Gamers select players, organize and train coaching staff, and create tactics down to the smallest detail before playing the game.

Almost all aspects of running a soccer team are included in the game, including fighting with star players and team owners and communicating with supporters who get angry when their performance drops, and has been loved by soccer fans since the first installment of the series was released in 1993.

In particular, the accurate implementation of tens of thousands of players, even those in countries on the outskirts of soccer, with dozens of abilities, including nationality, physical condition, and soccer skills, is considered the 'highlight' of this game.

Kohl's utilized this database.

Guinea-Bissau, a former Portuguese colony with a population of 2 million, is ranked 106th in the FIFA rankings.

From the 1994 Confederation of African Football (CAF) Nations Cup to 2015, they failed to make it to the preliminary round, but from 2017 to this year, they made it to the finals for four consecutive competitions.

Frederic Mendy, who played as a foreign player for Ulsan Hyundai and Jeju United in the K-League in 2016 and 2017, played the field wearing a Guinea-Bissau uniform.

Coles said the subsequent process was a tedious task.

After verifying the player through Football Manager, the agent's contact information is contacted through LinkedIn, etc.

Most of the time there was no response, but there were cases where people were contacted and asked what Coles had to say.

Coles explains that many of them were reluctant to join the uncompetitive national team, but as a few showed interest, it became easier to persuade other players to use them as a precedent.

The representative example cited by Coles is Carlos Mane, born in 1994.

Having played for Sporting (Portugal), Stuttgart, and Union Berlin (Germany), he represented Portugal in his age group, but failed to advance to the adult national team.

Mane, who eventually chose the Guinea-Bissau national team, made his debut in a match against Sierra Leone on the 12th of last month, playing 93 minutes and leading the team to a 2-1 victory.
