Team K-League defeated Spanish La Liga giants Atletico Madrid, and Se Jing-ya was pleased with the team’s performance after facing big league players in the second 45 minutes.
Team K-League pulled off a come-from-behind 3-2 victory over Atletico Madrid at the Seoul World Cup Stadium at 8 p.m. on Aug. 28. The team struggled with the individual skills and tactics of their highly-ranked opponents, but came from behind in the second half to turn the game around in extra time 토토사이트.
Team K-League conceded an early goal to Toma Lema in the 13th minute of the first half and were outnumbered throughout the first half. However, starting goalkeeper Lee Chang-geun made a series of saves to keep them in the game. After Anton’s equalizer in the fourth minute of the second half tied the game, Team K-League looked for a comeback, but it didn’t come easily. Instead, they conceded a goal in the 40th minute to Carlos Martin. However, they kept attacking until the end, and Palocevic converted a penalty kick in the 44th minute, and Lee Soon-min scored a mid-range goal in extra time to secure the win.
Daegu FC ace Sejingya, who came on at the start of the second half, did not disappoint with his performance in the K League. He led the attack alongside foreign players such as Zeca up front and Hayes and Jeros on the flanks, and helped Anton equalize with an accurate free kick.
Speaking in the post-match mix zone, Sejingya was upbeat: “I’m very happy to be playing for Team K-League. It was a great experience playing with Atletico Madrid. I had an assist today, and I was hungry for a goal, but it wasn’t enough. It feels good to have this opportunity to showcase Korean soccer and all the players who play in Korea.”
“I know that Atletico Madrid has a lot of good players and is a good team, so it was an opportunity to show how Korean football should be played in attack and defense. It was a game where my players and I were able to take a step forward.”
It was Sejingya’s second K League All-Star selection after his 2019 performance against Juventus. “I’m happy to play in two All-Star games,” he said. However, I think my last game was a little better than this one because I scored a goal. The K League players are all very good players, so I think we showed the fans a good game. I didn’t score a goal against Atletico Madrid, but I made an assist, so I think I played a good game this time as well.”
After the game, the team exchanged jerseys. “I didn’t get to swap with the player I wanted, but I got to swap with Molina. When I get home to Brazil, I’m going to frame it and put it in a frame,” he said.
As for Griezmann, who he had expressed interest in before the game, “He’s too good to mention. I wanted to come on in the first half, bump into him, fight with him, pass to him, get a feel for the flow of the game, but I was a little disappointed that I didn’t get to do that. As a player who played in the World Cup, it was great to see the skills, the tempo, the one-touch, two-touch,” he said, expressing his delight at seeing him play in front of him.
