Daegu FC had a 2-2 draw in the 27th round of the “Hana One Q K League 1 2023” away match against FC Seoul at the Seoul World Cup Stadium on the 19th. Daegu (8 wins, 11 draws, and 8 losses) failed to win six consecutive games. After the game, coach Choi said, “The players worked too hard. Thank you. I lost a point too fast. He didn’t seem to give up even when he lost an additional point. He called for perseverance and grit. He came to Seoul and won one point. Edgar also scored. I don’t think it was bad,” he said. Daegu had a 3-4-3 formation. Lee Keun-ho, Cesinha and Ko Jae-hyun formed a three-top. Hong Chul, Park Se-jin, Lee Jin-yong, and Hwang Jae-won formed the waist. Cho Jin-woo, Hong Jung-woon, and Kim Jin-hyuk formed a three-back. Goalkeeper gloves were worn by Oh Seung-hoon.
Veteran Lee Keun-ho started and scored a valuable equalizer. Coach Choi said, “Lee Keun-ho is a player who doesn’t need words. I didn’t send it out because it was a close call. His attitude and condition at the training ground were the best. Of course, it’s good to score. I did it like Geunho. What is regrettable is that what would have been like if it was Keunho, who was three to four years younger. The same is true of Cesinha. It’s a tough fight this year. I think not only Geun-ho but also veterans such as Lee Yong-rae should do more. It will balance you. Young players will also improve. I’m grateful,” he said. For the first time in a while, Cesinha-Edgar union collaborated on a goal. Director Choi said, “This is a scene that should have been shown. I’ll ask for more. I can’t rebuke them because they didn’t try not to score. I do my best. They are grateful players. We have 11 games left. “I think we will continue to make it,” he praised. Daegu will face Jeju United on the 26th. 토토
