Moon Kyung-gun, who recorded his first clean sheet in the starting match, turned the ball to the fans.
Sangmu Kim won 2-0 thanks to consecutive goals from Lee Myeong-jae and Kim Ji-hyun in an away game against Chungbuk Cheongju FC in the 2R ‘Hanawon Q K League 2 2023’ held at Cheongju Stadium on the 4th.
The player who received attention in the game that day was gatekeeper Moon Kyung-geon. With 7,000 spectators packed in, he could have felt the pressure, but he was responsible for the back gate with stable saving and defense coordination, and helped the team to win without a goal.
After the match, Moon Kyung-geon said, “I never did well alone. The 10 players in front of the goalkeeper played really hard and I think we were able to win.”
The start of the game on this day had a great meaning for Moon Kyung-geon. This is because it was his debut match in Gimcheon after his enlistment on June 13 last year. Not only that, but it was a K-League appearance in 490 days since the appearance in Ansan on October 31, 2021. It is also his first clean sheet in a starting match if you expand his K-League career.
Regarding this, Moon Kyung-gun said, “It was my first K-League appearance in a year and a half. Trusting his colleagues, he was not nervous. He thought that as a goalkeeper, if he plays well, he will play well.”
“After enlisting, there were seniors, and there were many good goalkeepers. Many good players such as Kang Hyeon-moo and Kim Jun-hong came in as his successors. He is competing in good faith, so I think he will be able to grow further as a player,” he added.
There was another reason why the debut match in Gimcheon was special to Moon Kyung-gun. Moon Kyung-gun said, “Despite the away game, the cheering from the fans was really loud. Even when I was opposite him, I could hear all the cheering. He was able to win thanks to the fans who came all the way and supported him. Thank you very much.”
Gimcheon, who played two games, is in second place in the K-League 2 with two consecutive wins. Moon Kyung-gun, who served as vice-captain this season, is determined to run toward ‘undefeated’ with his seniors.스포츠토토
Moon Kyung-gun said, “The goal is to remain undefeated until the sergeants are discharged. After playing two matches, he became more confident that he could do more. We will do our best to show fans a fun and thrilling game. We ask for your support at the stadium.”
Meanwhile, Gimcheon will take a break for a week and play the ‘Hana One Q K League 2 2023’ 4R away match against Busan I-Park at 1:30 on March 19 at the Busan Asiad Main Stadium.
