Attention in the opening game of ‘Hanawon Q K League 2 2023’ between Seoul E-Land and Chungbuk Cheongju held at Mok-dong Sports Complex on the 1st was focused on E-Land’s uniform number 9 Bantoan.
Van Toan is an active Vietnamese national striker, signed a two-year contract with E-Land as a free agent ahead of this season, and proudly started as an offensive midfielder in a 4-2-3-1 formation that day.
And in order to support his ‘favorite disciple’ Van Toan, former Vietnamese coach Park Hang-seo visited the Mokdong Stadium and watched Van Toan play from start to finish. Coach Park, who met domestic reporters at halftime, laughed and told an anecdote, saying, “Ban Toan is always a player with a bright and positive mindset. During his time in the Vietnamese national team, he had me do dirty jobs like snacking.” I hope that more Vietnamese players will come to Korea this year.”
Bantoan, who entered the K-League for the first time on this day, blocked opponent midfielder Peter’s dribble with a tackle using speed at the moment, and also drew an opponent’s foul in a dangerous area with a bold breakthrough. 먹튀검증 However, it was not easy for Bantoan to shine in a game where E-Land, which welcomed coach Park Choong-gyun as the new command tower, showed poor tactical perfection. Van Toan was replaced by Kwak Seong-wook in the 35th minute of the second half without scoring a shot and retired to the bench. Director Park sent a cheering message, saying, “It’s not something you adapt to overnight. I will perform better when the weather is hot.”
The main character of the game was different. It was a trio of foreigners from Cheongju, Chungcheongbuk-do, a new team that participated in the pro this year. Brazilian striker Paulinho opened the scoring with an assist from Australian midfielder Peter in the 8th minute of the first half. Brazilian striker Jorge, who assisted Moon Sang-yoon’s additional goal in the 5th minute of the second half, scored the third goal himself with a cannon ball mid-range in the 18th minute counterattack. E-Land belatedly pursued with consecutive goals by Bruno in the 25th minute and Tsubasa in the 30th minute of the second half, but it was not enough time to catch up with all three goals that had occurred earlier. Chungbuk Cheongju, a new team led by coach Choi Yoon-gyeom, made their K-League debut with a wonderful victory with a 3-2 Pellescore.
