The difference in skill was clear. South Korea cruised to victory over China. Another frustrating game for China, who felt the difference in quality between Korea and China.
South Korea cruised to a 3-0 victory over China at the Shenzhen Universiade Sports Center in Shenzhen, China, at 9:00 p.m. ET on Sunday (Sept. 21) in the second round of Group C of the 2026 FIFA North American Football Confederation (FIFA) World Cup Asia Pacific Second Qualifying Round. South Korea took the lead in the 11th minute through Son Heung-min’s penalty kick, before Son added a second in the 45th minute and Jung Seung-hyun scored the winner in the 42nd minute.레모나토토 주소
I was also satisfied with the game because we played with a lot of freedom after taking an early lead. China’s Sina Sports quoted journalist Han Bing as saying on the 22nd, “There was a big difference in quality between us and Korea.”
Han Bing said on his social media account, “The difference in power was still evident,” adding, “Even if Korea’s offense was not strong, defensive mistakes led to goals. Korea’s defense has always been a problem, and a stronger team would have been able to take advantage of those chances, but there was nothing China could do about it,” he said, cleverly taking a dig at Korea, but also pointing out that China couldn’t do anything about it.
Locally, the mood in China is that second place is a realistic goal for China after the loss to South Korea. Since beating South Korea is a near-impossible task, it is more realistic to finish second in the group after beating Thailand and Singapore. After two rounds, South Korea leads Group C with 6 points, followed by Thailand (3 points), China (3 points), and Singapore (0 points).
