Overwhelming Donghyun Kim, Jinkyu Kim, Youngjae Lee… ‘Ku Ka Mo’ of ‘Real Gimcheon’
The midfield of ‘Real Gimcheon’ was overwhelming.
Managing Director Kim Cheon drew 2-2 with Seongnam FC in the 12th round of the ‘Hanawon Q K League 2 2023’ held at Tancheon Sports Complex at 6:30 pm on the 7th. With one point, Gimcheon maintained second place in the league.
Compared to other K-League 2 teams, Kimcheon is a team that boasts an overwhelming squad. Members of the main or semi-state level in each team are selected for the Sangmu through fierce competition. There are players who have experienced not only the K League 1 but also the national team. In the match against Seongnam, Cho Young-wook, Lee Young-jae, Dong-hyeon, and Lee Sang-min were on the starting list. To the extent that resources such as Kang Yun-seong and Won Doo-jae sit on the bench.
For this reason, Gimcheon’s nickname is ‘Real Gimcheon’. It is a nickname that combines Real Madrid and Kimcheon, the prestigious Spanish La Liga and world-class clubs. Real Madrid is famous for its star squad, and it is also a nickname that came about because Kim Cheon’s squad is just as splendid as Real Madrid. Like Real Madrid, most of Kimcheon’s individual skills are top-notch in the K-League 2. The same goes for Kim Dong-hyeon, Kim Jin-kyu, and Lee Young-jae, who were in charge of Gimcheon’s midfield in the Seongnam game.
It’s a combination that reminds me of Real’s ‘Kkamo’. ‘Kcamo’ is named after Toni Kroos, Casemiro, and Luka Modric, who were in charge of Real’s midfield when they spent their golden years playing for Real and helping the team win three consecutive victories in the UEFA Champions League (UCL). I mean. The individual skills of the three players were also world-class, and the team play was never pushed back no matter which team they faced.
This is the current Gimcheon Jungwon. Kim Dong-hyeon, Kim Jin-gyu, and Lee Young-jae were players who always took starting positions or were midterms at Suwon FC, Jeonbuk Hyundai, and Gangwon FC before enlisting in Sangmu. It was the core of the K League 1 team, and the three players currently playing in the K League 2 are not pushed against any team.
In the match against Seongnam, Gimcheon’s midfield was particularly strong. Kim Cheon’s midfield, composed of Kim Dong-hyeon, Kim Jin-kyu, and Lee Young-jae, played a major role in bringing about the initiative by winning the midfield battle 메이저사이트against Seongnam perfectly. Lee Young-jae and Kim Dong-hyun coordinated the game with sharp passes and stable game management skills, and Kim Jin-gyu played a role as a link in the attack by moving around the field. Kim Dong-hyun scored a wonder goal with a powerful shot in the 14th minute of the second half. The Seongnam midfielders were struggling against the three players in the Gimcheon midfield.
Of course, since soccer is a team sport, the majority of cases lead to good results when the tactical ability of the manager and the sum of the players match. However, as much as the team play, the individual skills of the players cannot be ignored, which is why soccer and Gimcheon, where each player has excellent skills, are scary. Although they won a draw, Kim Cheon showed why they are called the ‘ecosystem destroying species’ of K League 2 in the match against Seongnam.
