1 minute, 25 seconds Read

The whistle blew to signal defeat.

Suwon Samsung’s Lee Sang-min burst into tears after conceding a penalty kick for an illegal tackle.

On the 21st, the bottom-ranked Suwon Samsung met the top-ranked Ulsan Hyundai at Suwon World Cup Stadium.

As expected, the game was fiercely contested. Ulsan took the lead and Suwon followed suit.

In the 39th minute of the second half, the score was tied at 2-2.

Lee Sang-min, a defender, failed to clear a cross into the box perfectly and made a deep tackle on Ulsan’s Seol Young-woo. The referee wasted no time in awarding a penalty kick.

Lee held his head in his hands, looking devastated. It was a fatal mistake.

Ulsan’s Martin Adam lightly rattled the net to put Ulsan back in front, 3-2.

Substituted in the 44th minute of the second half, Lee knelt down on the bench and blamed himself.

When the final whistle blew, he burst into tears.

Coach Kim Byung-soo, as well as senior players such as Yeom Ki-hoon and Yang Hyung-mo, hugged and comforted him. Supporters Grand Bleu also comforted him by shouting “Don’t cry” instead of reprimanding him.토토사이트

Coach Kim Byung-soo said, “You don’t have to cry. He is only 20 years old. It may be difficult for him to overcome this situation, but he is a player with good skills, so I hope he will grow up mentally from this incident.” “It’s best to forget about it,” he said. Lee could be back in the starting lineup for the next FA Cup. There is no time to sit around and cry.”

Growing pains for any rookie. It happened to Lee Sang-min, too.

Fans hope that today’s hot tears will be the foundation for the future.
