Suwon defeated Daegu FC 1-0 in the round of 16 of the 2023 Korea Football Association (FA) Cup at Suwon World Cup Stadium on Thursday. Suwon, the reigning FA Cup champions (five times), advanced to the quarterfinals of the FA Cup for the eighth consecutive year. Suwon will meet Incheon United, who defeated Gyeongnam FC, on March 28.
Kim Ju-chan opened the scoring in the 26th minute when he calmly slotted home a cross from Kim Bo-kyung with his right foot. The goal proved to be the game-winner. It was also Kim’s first professional goal. Kim has yet to score in eight league games this season. After the game, he said, “My brothers and the coaching staff were very willing to work together. I’ve always liked Suwon since I was a kid and wanted to come here. I can’t describe how good it feels to score my debut goal.” 메이저사이트
Kim, who was born in 2004, has been getting opportunities to play for the U-22s, but hasn’t seen much playing time. He has played 216 minutes in eight league games, with the most being 46 minutes. On this day, he played 72 minutes, including 27 minutes in the second half. Kim said, “As a player, I’m naturally greedy. I will not stay here and become a player who grows.”
Kim’s position is that of a flanker. “When I play on the side, the coach emphasizes movement with the midfielders and side defenders. In practice, he tells us that we have a higher chance of scoring if we have a lot of numbers in the box, so I tried to penetrate into the box even when scoring.”
