Korean soccer player Hong Hyun-seok’s goal silenced a stadium full of Chinese home fans for a moment. After beating China, the team will play Uzbekistan for a spot in the final tomorrow (Nov. 4).
Chinese soccer was rough from the start, with fans booing every time our players touched the ball.
However, in the 18th minute of the first half, the Korean national team easily took control of the game thanks to this scene.
Hong Hyun-seok, who got a free kick, curled it with his left foot and scored a picturesque goal.
He put his finger to his mouth in celebration, and the 50,000 Chinese fans were stunned into silence.

Hong Hyun-seok, who made a name for himself with his ‘overhead kick’ in Belgium, has played a lot at the Asian Games, orchestrating the midfield, sometimes providing support, sometimes solving problems himself.
Not only does he read the game well, but he also scored goals against both Kyrgyzstan in the round of 16 and China in the quarterfinals, raising expectations for the semifinals.
Next up is Uzbekistan, who Hong says “I think they’re the strongest because they play like Europe,” but he’s also confident that “we can beat them.”
