China’s ‘golden generation’ of soloists…South Korea’s freestyle heyday, what’s the secret?

The latest from the Hangzhou Asian Games. After winning gold in the men’s 800-meter freestyle relay, the swim team used solid teamwork to stop China’s dominance and break Japan’s record. Moments later, they’re back in the hunt for another medal 굿모닝토토.

Reporter Choi Jong-hyuk reports from Hangzhou.


Ji Yuchan stopped China’s dominance in the 50m freestyle.

Some called it a surprise gold medal.

[Ji Yuchan/Swimmer, Men’s 50m Freestyle Gold: I’m short, so I can turn faster than everyone else, and I start as fast as I can, so I have the advantage of momentum…]

I was able to go out with an explosive start and sprint away from the side lane resistance.

The men’s 800-meter freestyle relay was able to break Japan’s Asian record and win because they didn’t rely on one star performer…

[Lee Ho-joon / Men’s Freestyle 800m Gold: I think he did a good job for me and Sun-woo in the preliminaries, so we were able to run a stronger race in the final].

I had a strategy.

Until the World Championships in July, the race order was Hwang Sun-woo Kim Woo-min Yang Jae-hoon Lee Ho-joon, but I came out with a ‘surprise tactic’ to change Yang Jae-hoon to the front and Hwang Sun-woo to the back.

[Lee Jung-hoon/Swimming team coach: Jae-hoon was psychologically uneasy because he kept trying to protect himself if he was in the middle, so he was psychologically uneasy because he was trying to protect himself if there was a little gap, so we just need to come in together, so we can come in one second apart, so let’s go for number one].

We analyzed each player’s style and psychology, and it worked. Yang Jae-hoon held his own among the Chinese and Japanese powerhouses, Lee Ho-joon pulled away, Kim Woo-min widened the gap, and Hwang Sun-woo took over.

After a strong start, middle and long-distance standout Kim Woo-min struck gold again a short time later in the 1500m freestyle.

Kwon Soon-woo apologizes for ‘unmannerly controversy’ “I sincerely regret and reflect, and will think deeply about the weight of ‘Taeguk-mark’ as a national team member”

Kwon Soon-woo (Dangjin City Hall) has apologized for his ‘bad manners’ controversy.

Kwon lost 1-2 (3-6 7-5 4-6) to Kassidit Samrej (636th-ranked Thailand) in the second round of the men’s singles competition at the Hangzhou 2022 Asian Games at the Hangzhou Olympic and Sports Center in Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province, China on Friday (July 25). Kwon Soon-woo, who came through the first round in straight sets, dropped to his knees in the first game of his singles match.

Furthermore, he smashed his racket in anger after losing to Samrez. Not only did he slam it once or twice, but he also hit a bench chair several times. After shaking hands with the umpire, Samrez approached Kwon to shake his hand, but Kwon ignored him. Later, as Kwon Soon-woo was leaving the stadium, he turned toward Samrez and did not shake his hand.

This was covered by foreign media and spread like wildfire. On the date of the controversy, the Korea Tennis Association said, “I went to the training center of the Thai team and apologized to the opponent and told him to play well. The opponent also said it was okay, and they resolved it well.” 무지개토토

However, the controversy didn’t die down, and Kwon wrote a personal apology, saying, “Immediately after the game, I acted in a disrespectful manner that I should not have done as a national player. I sincerely apologize to all the people who support the national team and the spectators at the stadium. “I would also like to express my sincere apologies to Mr. Samrez, who may have been offended by my disrespectful behavior. I am sincerely remorseful and reflective. As a national athlete representing my country, I will deeply consider the weight of the Korean flag and reflect on my actions to become a responsible athlete.”

YSKM, who played against the Korean team, says, “I took a picture with ‘Zeus’ and talked to him. ‘Faker’ is…”

Invictus Gaming top laner Chau “YSKM” Chow Shu-tak, who competed for Hong Kong at the Hangzhou Asian Games, expressed his disappointment in the loss to South Korea.

Hong Kong was unable to overcome a bottom lane deficit against South Korea in their opening Group A match of the Group Stage at the 19th Hangzhou Asian Games at the Hangzhou Esports Center Auxiliary Arena in Hangzhou, China on Friday (July 25).

The most notable player on the Hong Kong squad is Chow “YSKM” Shu-tak. The LPL’s Invictus Gaming (IG) player has endeared himself to fans this year with his spectacular entrance rituals. After spearheading his team’s winning streak at the beginning of the LPL Summer, he didn’t fare as well in the second half of the champion pool, where he ran into problems.

Citing Kang “TheShay” Seung-rok (Weibo Gaming) as a role model, Chow Shu-tak took out Fiora on the day as a tribute to “TheShay”.

He also hoped to play against T1’s Zeus Woo-je on the international stage, which was fulfilled at the Asian Games. “It’s unfortunate that we lost against Korea, but we will help them win so that we can compete next time,” Chow Shu-tak said in an interview with Chinese media at the Asian Games Mixed Zone, “I hope the Chinese team can avenge us.”

“We took pictures and talked, but it was very difficult to understand why Koreans were taller than me,” he said, adding, “I couldn’t take pictures of ‘Faker’ Lee Sang-hyuk because there were many people around him. Every day at the restaurant, there were people lining up to take pictures with him.” 메이저사이트

“If I can go to the League of Legends World Championship (Rold Cup) later on, I’ll get revenge on the Koreans,” he vowed after the match, which effectively ended the 2023 season.

Sabre final: another family feud! Goo Bon-gil tries to win his 4th consecutive title vs. Oh Sang-wook tries to fight back

Living legend Koo Bon-gil will attempt to win his fourth consecutive Asian Games title. Koo Bon-gil, who has never lost an individual final, will battle Oh Sang-wook for gold.

Koo Bon-gil (Korea Sports Promotion Agency) reached the final of the men’s sabre individual event at the Hangzhou 2022 Asian Games on Friday at the Hangzhou University of Electronic Arts Gymnasium in Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province, China. He will try to win his fourth consecutive Asian Games sabre individual title. His opponent is Oh Sang-wook (Daejeon City Hall), whom he met five years ago.

Koo Bon-gil won 15-10 against Kuwait’s Yousif Alsamran.

Alsamran controlled the early game. The score went down to 1-5, but as if to say, ‘I’ve taken care of the four-point deficit,’ he scored five points to turn it around.

In the process of making it 9-7, he hit the back of his opponent’s hand, causing him to lose his sword. Koo immediately made an apologetic gesture, but there were no concessions in the match. He landed the next attack, and the next, and the next, to win 11-7. In the process, a nervous battle ensued with Alsamran.

Koo Bon-gil has won three consecutive gold medals in the men’s individual sabre event, from Guangzhou 2010 to Jakarta-Palembang 2018.

In the history of the Asian Games, there is no other fencer like him. In total, Koo has won six medals at the Asian Games, five of which are gold. Three individual golds and two team golds. The other is a silver in the team event. Koo has made it to the finals every time he’s competed.

The 34-year-old veteran still has one goal in mind. Gold. “I’ll do my best to win gold,” she said when she arrived in Hangzhou.

In the quarterfinals, he faced China’s Shen Qianfeng in a close match. He was down 10-14, but quickly tied the score at 14-14, and finished off the upset drama with a final attack. It was a dramatic finish for the Asian Games favorite.

Before Koo Bon-gil, Oh Sang-wook (Daejeon City Hall) was the first to reach the final, defeating Iran’s Muhammad Rabbari Koyaki by fall.

Oh also reached the final at the last Asian Games, but had to settle for a silver medal behind Koo.

Like Koo, he has his sights set on gold. “My goal is to win gold in the individual and team events,” said Oh. We lost in Jakarta-Palembang and only got a silver medal, but this time we will do our best to manage our physical condition so that we can win the gold.” 토토사이트

His bid for gold went well. Oh defeated Uzbekistan’s Aimuratov Musa 15-11 in the quarterfinals.

In the semifinals, Oh was in a tight match early on, but he didn’t give up the lead easily. He took the lead at the 10-point mark and never looked back.

Meanwhile, fencing sabre, which Oh Sang-wook and Koo Bon-gil competed in, is the only sport that allows slashing attacks, unlike foil and epee. The entire upper body, including arms and head, can be attacked. Because of the slashing attack, the handle is characterized by a hand guard.

South Korea has won a total of 122 men’s and women’s medals at the Asian Games until the last edition in Jakarta-Palembang. China is second with 124, not far behind. Japan is third with 66.

’14th even with Pochettino’ Chelsea lose 0-1 at Villa, ‘humiliated’ by first PL 6G win in 23 years

Chelsea are off to their worst start to a season under new manager Mauricio Pochettino.

“Chelsea’s appalling data reflects their poor start to the season,” The Athletic, a British publication, reported on Thursday (Aug. 25), adding that “the appalling numbers surrounding Chelsea at the moment speak for themselves.”

Chelsea were outnumbered and outplayed in their 2023/24 Premier League 6th round match against Aston Villa at Stamford Bridge in London, England on April 24, losing 0-1.

After a 0-0 first half, Chelsea were reduced to 10 men in the 17th minute of the second half when defender Marlo Guisto was sent off for a direct challenge. Guisto made a dangerous tackle on Villa defender Luca Digne’s ankle, and the referee immediately produced a yellow card.

However, the video assistant referee (VAR) was on hand and, at the request of the VAR room, the referee moved off the touchline to review the footage of Guisto’s tackle. After reviewing the footage, the referee decided that it was not a foul that should have resulted in a caution, canceled the yellow card, pulled out the red card, and sent Guisto off.

Outnumbered and outplayed, Chelsea ultimately conceded a late 27th minute goal to striker Ola Watkins on the counter-attack, dropping the three points at home to Villa in a 0-1 defeat.

With the win away from home, Villa jumped to sixth place in the league (W4 D2 L12), while Chelsea remained in 14th place with just five points (W1 D2 L3) from six games.

Since the start of the season, Chelsea has already lost three of their six league games. Chelsea’s only league win of the season was a 3-0 victory over promoted Luton Town in the third round, and they have since drawn one and lost two of their last three league games, including a loss to Villa.

Last season was Chelsea’s worst ever, as they finished 12th in the league, missing out on European qualification and finishing outside the top 10.

In the 2022/23 season, Chelsea made two managerial changes, starting with the sacking of Thomas Tuchel, in an attempt to turn things around, but both failed. Graham Potter, who had led Brighton to success, was brought in ambitiously, but he was sacked after failing to fulfill his contract due to poor results, and club legend Frank Lampard, who was brought in as a fireman, failed to turn the club’s fortunes around.

Unwilling to repeat the tragedy, Chelsea overhauled its squad and coaching staff ahead of the new season. First, they handed the reins to Mauricio Pochettino, who has extensive Premier League experience.

Pochettino has proven his leadership skills in the past with successful stints at Southampton and Tottenham Hotspur. In the 2018/19 season, Pochettino shocked everyone by leading Spurs to the UEFA Champions League final for the first time in the club’s history. Pochettino began managing Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) in January 2021, before taking a year off ahead of the 2022/23 season when he was sacked in July last year and returned to the Chelsea sidelines.

Since Pochettino’s appointment, the Blues have spent an astronomical amount of money on the transfer market. According to Sky Sports, the Blues have spent a whopping £419 million on 12 new signings this summer. They even set a new Premier League transfer record when they spent £115 million to sign Ecuadorian midfielder Caicedo.

The problem is, despite all the spending, Pochettino’s early season results have been less than stellar. After drawing 1-1 with Liverpool in the opening round of the 2023/24 Premier League season, Chelsea lost 1-3 at West Ham United in the second round. They then recorded their first win of the season with a 3-0 victory in the third round of the league against Luton Town, who were promoted to the Premier League for the first time in the club’s history.

However, Chelsea failed to capitalize on the momentum following the win. A 0-1 loss to Nottingham Forest in Round 4, a 0-0 draw at Bournemouth in Round 5, and a 0-1 defeat at Villa in Round 6 have left the Blues with no chance of breaking into the top half of the table.

“Terrible” is how The Athletic described Chelsea’s current situation. After the Villa game, the publication pointed out that “Chelsea have failed to score a goal in 13 Premier League games since entering 2023, more than any other team.”

“For the first time since the 2000/01 season, Pochettino’s Chelsea have won just one game in their opening six Premier League matches, and it’s also the first time they’ve lost three in their opening six games.”

Of course, Pochettino has his own excuses for the current situation. The Blues’ first-team squad is currently sidelined with more than a dozen injuries at the start of the 2023/24 season, meaning Pochettino hasn’t had access to his best 11 since the start of the campaign.

Currently, a number of first-team players have been sidelined with injuries, both major and minor, including Leicester’s Leigh James, Wesley Fofana, Trevor Chalobah, and Christopher Nkunku. Most recently, 2004 Belgian midfielder Romeo Rabia, who joined the club for £58 million this summer, suffered an ankle injury and faces a possible long-term absence with a muscle tear in his ankle joint.

The loss of Nkunkwo, in particular, was devastating for Chelsea. The 1997-born French striker scored 16 Bundesliga goals for RB Leipzig last season, tying for the league’s top scorer with Werder Bremen’s Niklas Fühlkrug (Borussia Dortmund).

After winning the Bundesliga’s top scorer title, Nkunku made his Premier League debut in June when he joined Chelsea in a €66 million deal. Nkunkwo arrived at Chelsea with a lot of expectations, and his performances in pre-season friendlies have kept fans excited ahead of the season 스포츠토토.

Nkunkwo played in all five of Chelsea’s pre-season friendlies, scoring a total of three goals. With a sharp eye for goal in the friendlies, Chelsea fans were eager to see what he would do in the official games.

However, Nkunkwo suffered a knee injury against Dortmund in the final friendly before the start of the season. Nkunku, who started the friendly against Dortmund in August in Chicago, USA, went down on the field in the 19th minute of the first half with a strained left knee.

Ntunkwo, who was immediately substituted, was taken to the hospital for further examination. Fans and the club hoped it wasn’t a serious injury, but unfortunately, Nkunkwo went under the knife with a damaged meniscus in his left knee and will be out of action for up to four months.

With Nkunkwo, who was expected to be the mainstay of the team, out for an extended period of time, Chelsea got off to a slow start to the season as their goal-scoring problems eventually became apparent. Excluding the three goals against Luton Town, Chelsea have scored just two goals in their opening five league games.

“The players have to show their performance on the pitch, so we have to try to give them all the support they need to boost their confidence,” Pochettino said after the game, as the goal drought continues.

“The performance is good, not great, but good, and we are missing goals,” he said, adding, “I will now start again tomorrow to prepare for the next game and hopefully we can score in the next game.”

Chelsea will next face Brighton & Hove Albion in the third round of the 2023/24 English Football League (EFL) Cup on April 28 at 3:45pm. It will be interesting to see if the Blues can find the confidence and finishing touch they need to bounce back.

After Brighton, the Blues will face a pair of relatively easy games against Fulham on October 3 and Burnley on October 7.

’11 wins in the first half to 0 in the second half’ Outside pitcher finally pitches out of the bullpen…Yoon’s final warning message: “Make your start on Oct. 2”

Finally, a bullpen pitching session.

LG pitcher Plutko has completed his rehabilitation and is ready to make a full comeback. Manager Yoon Kyung-yup informed Plutko to prepare for his start against KT on October 2.

On the 23rd, Plutko joined the first team training at Jamsil Stadium and pitched out of the bullpen. He threw 26 pitches that day to check his physical condition.

Coach Yeom said, “Plutko will be ready to start against KT on October 2. I told him to pitch at that time,” said Yeom. “I don’t see any problems. I saw him pitching in the bullpen, so there’s no problem. He’s ready to pitch tomorrow,” he said of Plutko’s bullpen performance.

Plutko plans to throw one inning in a scrimmage before starting against KT on Oct. 2.

Plutko was the No. 1 starter in the first half. After going 15-5 last year, Plutko went 11-1 with a 2.21 ERA in 17 appearances in the first half of the year. It was the best start in the league. He was second in wins and third in ERA in the first half. He was a top-three pitcher with NC Peddy and Doosan Alcantara.

Plutko, who had won 10 straight games and 15 in a row by the end of June, suffered his first loss of the season on July 1 against KIA. He picked up his 11th win on July 8 against Lotte, and then took two weeks off, including the All-Star break. Plutko didn’t miss a beat in the rotation in the first half, throwing 102 innings to offset Kelly’s struggles.

However, things didn’t go well in the second half of the season. His first start was pushed back when it was rained out, and on July 25, he pitched a six-inning, three-run quality start against KT, but took the loss.

The team acquired starting pitcher Choi Won-tae in a trade with Kiwoom, and Choi entered the game in Flutco’s turn to solve the starting gap 메이저사이트.

At the time, Yeom said, “If you have a cold in the future, I will give you the highest penalty. It can create a crisis for the team. If the starting pitcher doesn’t take care of himself and can’t protect the rotation, it could cost us a game or two. The responsibility of a professional athlete is not just to play baseball well,” he said emphatically. (Plutko’s cold was later confirmed to be COVID-19)

On August 26, Plutko was pulled from the game against the Changwon NC after throwing four innings (one run). He was removed due to thigh discomfort, and a subsequent medical examination revealed a left pelvic bone contusion. At the time of the injury, he was expected to be out for “four to five weeks.”

It’s almost four weeks. Plutko is being too cautious with his conditioning during his rehabilitation. Athletes who are blessed with their bodies can adjust them to 100 percent for fear of recurring injuries, but it’s difficult to give the impression that they are ‘killing themselves’.

When asked about Plutko recently, coach Yeom Kyung-yup said, “I told him to get fit as soon as possible and come back. He must come back in early October. He should make two or three appearances at the end of the regular season and enter the postseason.” “If he doesn’t do that, we’re not going to use him in the postseason at all,” he said, sending a strong warning message.

Plutko’s season ended prematurely last year due to biliary symptoms at the end of the regular season. He rehabbed and prepared for the postseason, but he started Game 2 of the playoffs without throwing a single pitch in a practice game. The results were disastrous. Six runs (four earned) in 1⅔ innings.

Given the bad precedent, I’m hoping to pitch at least two games at full strength before the postseason this year. If the Kelly-Plutko one-two punch is healthy and pitching well, they will have a better chance of winning the Korean Series.

“I’m ready to play” 2G 13 goals Hwang Seon-Hongho and Song Min-Kyu are back…and Lee Kang-In is a bonus!

“The coach asked me if I could play in the next game, so I said yes.”

South Korea’s Asian Games squad, led by Hwang Sun-hong, kicked off training at 8 p.m. (local time) on Wednesday at Jinhua No. 1 Middle School in Jinhua, China.

After securing first place in Group E with a 9-0 victory over Kuwait in the first match and a 4-0 win over Thailand in the second, Hwang’s team will face Bahrain in the third match at the Jinhua Sports Center Stadium on Thursday.

There were no injuries in the two-match sweep. That’s good news for the Asian Games team, which had to play seven games in a short period of time.

There”s more good news. Song Min-kyu”s recovery.

Song Min-gyu warmed up by himself during a training session on April 18. During the 15 minutes of open training time given to reporters, Song Min-gyu ran on the field by himself. A Korean Football Association (KFA) official said, “Song Min-kyu has been doing recovery training,” and explained that the injury was not serious enough to prevent him from playing, but he did not practice with the team.

On the 22nd, he was grouped separately with Lee Han-beom, Kim Jung-hoon, Min Sung-joon, Choi Joon, and Park Kyu-hyun for a brief warm-up. Of course, there was Lee Kang-in.

Goalkeeper Kim Jung-hoon, Min Sung-joon, Song Min-kyu and Lee Kang-in have yet to play in a match, while Lee Han-beom and Park Kyu-hyun started in Game 1 and were rested in Game 2. Choi Jun came on as a late substitute in Game 2 after being rested in Game 1. These are the players with the least amount of playing time.

However, on this day, Song joined the team for training. In particular, Song practiced rondo (stealing the ball) drills with the “first team” players, which included Seol Young-woo, Cho Young-wook, Park Jin-seop, Choi Jun, Park Jin-seop, and Baek Seung-ho.

Song Min-kyu is one of Hwang Sun-hong’s key offensive resources with his excellent burst and teammates. He made a name for himself with the Pohang Steelers in the 2020 season, scoring 10 goals and adding six assists in 27 league appearances, and is currently playing for Jeonbuk Hyundai in the 2023 season, scoring six goals and adding two assists in 25 league appearances.

In the first and second legs, Hwang Sun-hong scored 13 goals without Song Min-kyu. Jung Woo-young and Cho Young-wook recorded hat tricks and multi-goal games in the first leg, while Baek Seung-ho, Uhm Won-sang, Park Jae-yong, Hong Hyun-seok, Uhm Won-sang, and Lee Jae-ik scored goals. Ahn Jae-joon scored a goal for the second straight game.

“The coach also asked me if I could play in the next game, so I said yes,” Song said. “I wanted to play, but when I talked to him, he said I shouldn’t overdo it and play in full physical condition, so I was more patient and watched the game.”

“As a striker, you have to have the desire to score goals and you have to be confident. If I get to play another game, I’ll definitely do my best to score a goal,” he said, adding that he was eager to score.

With Uhm Won-sang and Jung Woo-young already a threat from the flanks, Song Min-gyu’s addition could be a big help in the tight schedule of the tournament. 메이저사이트

More good news. Lee Kang-in has joined the team training. He’s not a “bonus,” as the title suggests, but after traveling 21 days to join the squad, he’s expected to make a brief appearance as a substitute in Game 3.

Meanwhile, Song Min-kyu and Lee Kang-in practiced side-by-side as a team. They could start or come off the bench against Bahrain on the 24th.

“Tottenham need to sign striker”…Son Heung-min’s new partner is ’17-goal’ Brazilian sensation

Tottenham Hotspur have set their sights on a new striker.

“Tottenham have entered the race to sign Marcos Leonardo, 20, from Santos in a bid to bolster their attacking line,” Spanish outlet Fichajes reported on Thursday.

Tottenham have suffered a major power leak this summer. Harry Kane, the team’s leading scorer until last season, left for Bayern Munich, leaving a gaping hole in the offense.

Kane’s absence was significant. Tottenham manager, Enze Postecoglou, identified Thierry Henry as the team’s new striker, but he hasn’t been able to produce enough goals to satisfy.

The solution was to play Son Heung-min up front. In his first appearance as a striker in the fourth round of the league against Burnley, Son scored a hat trick and emerged as the hope of the forward line.

The need for a striker hasn’t gone away. “If I was a Tottenham fan, I would want to sign a striker right now,” Gland international Gabriel Agbonlahor said in an interview.

“If Spurs are going to be in the top four of the league, it’s going to cost them. It’s not possible without a top-class striker.”

Leonardo has emerged as a potential target. According to the report, Spurs are considering him as an attractive option to bolster their forward line 토토사이트.

Leonardo is considered a striker with a lot of potential for future growth. He proved his potential last season with Santos, scoring 17 goals in 36 games across all competitions.

A move cannot be ruled out. “Santos know that they can make a lot of money on Leonardo’s transfer. He will leave the door open for a move,” the outlet analyzed.

‘New face Johnson-Choi Joon-yong pulp’ KCC wins practice match over Spellman-Bae Byung-jun split in Jungkwanjang

KCC wins scrimmage against Jeonggwanjang.

The Busan KCC Aegis won 102-94 in a scrimmage against the Anyang Jungkwanjang Red Boosters at Anyang Gymnasium on April 22.

Both teams played most of their main players, but as it was a practice game, the focus was on strengthening the process and organization rather than winning or losing.

KCC was missing Ragan-ah and Lee Seung-hyun, who were called up to the national team, as well as Lee Ho-hyun, who suffered a minor injury. Jung Hyo-geun was also ruled out with a minor injury, and Lens Abando, who arrived on the day, only did some weight training and did not play.

KCC managed to pull out the win despite the absence of Ragan, with new face Alize Johnson playing a lot of minutes. Forming a one-two punch with Choi Jun-yong, Johnson used his speed, scoring ability, and shooting prowess to make his presence felt. Choi Jun-yong dunked like meat on water, while Heo Woong, Jung Chang-young, and other players did their part. 레고토토

KGC also got some good shooting from Omari Spellman, who has been improving his form since returning from the Lebanese national team, playing around 20 minutes. Veteran shooter Bae Byeong-jun, who re-signed with the team this season, and captain Jung Jun-won also played well, but were unable to prevent the team from losing.

KCC started with Song Dong-hoon, Jung Chang-young, Heo Woong, Choi Jun-yong, and Alize Johnson, while Jung Kwan-jang started with Park Ji-hoon, Bae Byeong-joon, Jung Jun-won, Lee Jong-hyun, and Spellman.

Both teams started the game with Choi Jun-yong and Bae Byeong-joon as the outside shooters, and then Spellman opened up the scoring with Johnson not far behind.

While the outside support was active for both teams, KCC gained a narrow advantage as Heo Woong continued to score points. Jung Kwan-jang tried to keep up with KCC’s pace despite Bae Byeong-jun’s efforts. KCC’s transition game, led by Alize Johnson, paid off and they ended the first quarter with a 27-21 lead.

In the second quarter, Jung Kwan-jang started to pull away with three-pointers from Bae Byeong-joon and Choi Sung-won, but KCC was rejuvenated by Johnson’s dunk after a give-and-go play with Heo Woong and a dunk from Choi Jun-yong. With Johnson and Choi shining, KCC closed the half with a 50-41 lead.

In the third quarter, KCC’s Johnson-Junyong combination continued to be potent.

Johnson went to work inside and out first, and Choi responded with a three-pointer to extend the lead to 15 points. Johnson responded with a long-range floater and showed off his fluid dribbling as Chung answered with a three-pointer from Spellman. With the opponent’s defense collapsing, KCC ended the third quarter with an 80-64 lead.

The fourth quarter started with the lineup of Heo Woong-Ijinwook-Jung Chang-young-Choi Jun-yong-Johnson and Choi Sung-won-Go Chan-hyuk-Jung Jun-won-Kim Chul-wook-Monroe. At the beginning of the quarter, Jung’s offense was on full display, and the gap was quickly reduced by Jung’s outside shooting.

However, KCC fought back with Choi Jun-yong as a fireman. Jung Chang-young then added to the scoring, bringing the lead back to double digits, and it was too much for KCC to overcome. Kelvin Epistola and Kim Chul-wook also scored in the remaining minutes as both teams continued to play aggressively.

‘Ronaldo multi-goaler’ Alnasr beats Al Ahli 4-3 for fifth straight league win

Saudi Arabian professional soccer’s Al Nasr defeated Al Ahli, led by a multi-goal performance from ace Cristiano Ronaldo, to extend their league winning streak to five games. Ronaldo remained the league’s top scorer. 토토사이트

Al Nasr defeated Al Ahli 4-3 in a seven-goal thriller at home in the seventh round of the Saudi Pro League 2023-24 season at King Saud University Stadium in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, on Wednesday.

Al Nasr, who had dropped two games after opening the campaign, extended their winning streak to five games with the victory. At 5-2-2 (15 points), Alnasr moves into fifth place. Al Ahli is also 5-2.

Ronaldo was the star of the show. Ronaldo scored his eighth and ninth goals of the season to extend his lead in the Saudi League. He missed out on a hat trick, but he was the difference maker.

Ronaldo opened the scoring just four minutes after kickoff. He took a pass from Sadio Mane and rattled the net with a left-footed shot from the left side of the penalty box to the far post. It was a precise left-footed strike, even with visibility reduced by the fireworks that went off after kickoff.

Ronaldo was left holding his head in disappointment four minutes later when his shot from an empty net hit the left post.

The rest of the game was a slugfest. Alnasr made it 2-0 in the 17th minute on a header from Andersson Talisca, but Altrincham responded with a goal from Frank Kessier in the 30th minute.

Alnasr made it 3-1 before Talisca scored in first-half stoppage time.

Al Ahli pulled one back five minutes into the second half through Riyad Mahrez’s penalty kick, but Alnasr Ronaldo hit back immediately. Just two minutes after conceding, Ronaldo beat a defender in front of the arc before slotting home with his left foot.

Alnasr came from behind to concede a goal to Al Ahli in the second half, but held on to their one-goal lead to secure the win.
