Seong-wook Jin and Gabriel. The existence of transfer students in the two summers is making Seongnam FC coach Lee Gi-hyung reborn from ‘the older brother who wants to win’ to ‘the older brother who wins’, which is his original nickname.
Seongnam won 2-1 in the home game against Jeonnam Dragons in the 24th round of the ‘Hanawon Q K League 2 2023’ held at Tancheon Sports Complex on the 29th, with Jin Seong-wook and Gabriel’s consecutive guns. Seongnam, who became Cheonan City FC’s first historical win in the league just before, laughed in the home room 104 days after Cheonan’s victory (2-0 win) on April 16th. With 7 wins, 8 draws and 8 losses (29 points), they moved from 9th to 8th place.
The ‘victory heroes’ are Jin Seong-wook, who joined on loan from Jeju United this summer, and Brazilian striker Gabriel, who transferred completely from Ansan Greeners. The two, who improved the quality of Seongnam’s forefront, collaborated for victory on this day as well. In the first minute of the kickoff, Gabriel put in an exquisite penetrating pass that pierced the space behind Jeonnam’s defense, and Jin Sung-wook took over and scored the first goal. And in the 44th minute of the first half, when Jeonnam and the post-Cheonnam team were sent off, Gabriel received an additional goal from Jung Han-min’s pass. In the 30th minute of the second half, Jeonnam Lee Gyu-hyeok scored a comeback goal, but they could not pursue it any further.스포츠토토
After going scoreless in the first two games in July, Seongnam has scored eight goals in the last four games. Average of 2 goals per match. This is because Jin Seong-wook and Gabriel perfectly melted into the attack. In the match against Busan on the 16th (3-2 win), Jin Sung-wook was responsible for two goals alone, including the winning goal, and announced the value of existence. Although he lost in Cheonan (2-3 loss) on the 23rd, Gabriel gave Lee his trust by recording one goal and one assist. And on this day, he dominated the ground again with one goal and one assist.
With Jin Seong-wook, who has a lot of experience, such as the Olympic national team, stirring up the front line, and Gabriel actively going back and forth between the center and the side, serving as a passer or solver, Seongnam’s offense is evaluated to have changed to a new level.
Until now, ‘Lee Ki-hyeong-ho’ was unable to accumulate as many points as he wanted due to the line injury of frontline resources and lack of decisiveness despite his fighting spirit. The two transfer students are literally playing a role like rain in a drought. Seongnam will also participate in earnest in the K-League 2 mid-to-higher competition, which is getting hotter and hotter.
