As the final Group F match, which will determine Hwang Sun-hong’s Asian Games Round of 16 opponent, approaches kick-off, the starting lineups for the matches between Kyrgyzstan and Chinese Taipei and North Korea and Indonesia have been released.
Kyrgyzstan and Chinese Taipei will meet at 5 p.m. on Thursday (June 24) at the Jinhua Sports Center Stadium in Jinhua, China, in the third match of the Hangzhou 2022 Asian Games Men’s Football Group F competition. Chinese Taipei, which sits third in the group with a 1-1 record and three points, will look to defeat last-place Kyrgyzstan, which has lost two straight games, to claim the top spot in the group and advance to the round of 16.
Chinese Taipei comes into the game with a 3-6-1 record. Chiu Yu-hung will be in goal, with Hsiang-chu-ming, Wang Yi-yu, and Pang Li-peng forming the back three. Tou Hsiao-hsieh, Lin Ming-wei, Wu Yanshu, Yu Yao-hsing, and Wen Chih-hao form the midfield. Chen Pouliang starts up top and looks to score.
Kyrgyzstan will line up in a 5-3-2. Artem Priadkin pulls on the goalkeeping gloves. Adillet Nurlan, Eralman Akilbekov, Bayaman Kumarbai, Nurbol Baktybekov, and Aslan Bekverdinov make up the defense. Adillet Kanibekov, Irakimbek, Nurmat, and Ernas Avilov combine in the midfield, with Atay Ilyichbek and Maksat Aligulov as the two up top.
At the same time, the match between North Korea and Indonesia will take place at the nearby Zhejiang Normal University East Stadium. With North Korea currently sitting atop Group F, Indonesia in second and Chinese Taipei in third, all three teams have a chance to finish second in the group. The runner-up will meet Hwang Sun-hong in the round of 16. Here’s what to expect from the final Group F match.
North Korea will line up in a 3-4-3. Kang Joo-hyuk will be in goal, while Jang Kook-chul, Kim Kyung-seok, and Kim Yu-sung will defend. Ri Il-sung, Kang Kook-chul, Baek Jung-sung, and Kim Kook-beom form the midfield, while Kim Bum-hyuk, Ri Jo-guk, and Kim Kook-jin are the front three.
Indonesia’s counterpart will be a 4-4-2. Hernando Sutarjadi in goal and Andi Nugroho, Rizki Ramadhani, Robbie Darvis, and Alfeandra Santosa in defense. Donny Famungkas, Lachimat Irianto, Muhammad Muslihuddin, and Sharyan Abimanyu make up the midfield. Up front, Maulana Bikri and Ranai Rumakiech will look to score.
The Asian Games group stage rankings will be determined by points, goals for, goals against and goal difference, with fair play being taken into account if all else is equal.
There are two ways for North Korea to face us: first, North Korea would have to lose to Indonesia by two goals, and Taiwan would have to win 1-0 over Kyrgyzstan. This would leave all three teams (Indonesia, North Korea, and Chinese Taipei) with the same six points, but Indonesia would finish first in the group due to goal differential and goal difference, while North Korea would finish second due to a one-goal advantage over Chinese Taipei. If North Korea loses to Indonesia by one goal, first and second place will be determined by the result of Indonesia’s fair play score. 메이저사이트
In Taiwan’s case, assuming North Korea wins 1-0 against Indonesia, it only needs to win by at least two goals to advance to the Round of 16 in second place on goal difference. In this case, Hwang Sun-hong’s Round of 16 opponent would be Taiwan. Taiwan wins and North Korea and Indonesia tie.
