“Kicked in the face, but didn’t even give a warning”: Chinese media outbursts anger at referee Ko Hyung-jin

The Chinese national team (ranked 73rd in FIFA) is in the first half against Lebanon (107th in FIFA rankings) at 8:30 p.m. on the 17th (Korea time) in the second Group A match of the 2023 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) at Al-Tumama Stadium in Doha, Qatar.

Ahead of the match, Chinese media were worried. This is because the referee of China’s VS Lebanon was Ko Hyung-jin of South Korea. Both the standby and VAR referees were also made up of Korean referees.

There is a reason why Chinese media have been frustrated. This is because China’s referee Marning took charge of the match in the showdown between Korea and Bahrain on the 15th, generously giving yellow cards to Korean players. On this day, a total of five South Koreans were warned, including Park Yong-woo, Kim Min-jae, Lee Ki-je, Cho Kyu-sung and Son Heung-min.

Chinese media’s concerns became a reality. A dizzying situation occurred in the 14th minute of the first half. Lebanon’s Mansour kicked the ball from behind with his head. Later, Khamis reached out and tried to clear the high-rising ball. In the process, Khamis’ stud hit Dai Wai-chun in the face. Dai Wai-chun collapsed. 토토사이트 순위

However, referee Ko’s decision was offside. He declared offside fouls by China in the previous process. At the same time, VAR was activated for Kamis’ foul play. However, the VAR office did not consider the foul as a foul, and the situation changed.

The Chinese media were furious at this. “Dai Wychun was kicked in the face by the opponent, but the referee didn’t even give him a yellow card,” China’s Soho said. “The referee declared offside and checked VAR to see if there was a red card, but offside was maintained.”

Fans expressed their reactions. They complained about the decision, saying, “I kicked my face with a kick. I’m going to destroy my face,” “I almost ruined my face,” and “No way. There’s no yellow card?”

In addition to the scene in question, referee Ko did not blow a whistle unless it was a big foul. Referee Ko took out a warning to Zhang Yuning of China in the 30th minute of the first half. Meanwhile, the two teams are fiercely confronting each other, but they are continuing the first half without scoring a goal.
