'High-five' goal ceremony South Korea's Ahn Jae-joon, third from right, celebrates with teammates after scoring a goal to make it 2-0 in the first 20 minutes of their group stage match against Thailand at the Hangzhou Asian Games on Nov. 21. Ahn scored a goal for the second straight game, following his first against Kuwait on Sept. 19. With the 4-0 win, 스포츠토토맨 South Korea booked their place in the round of 16 with a second straight victory.

South Korea, which is attempting to win a third consecutive Asian Games men's soccer title for the first time in its history, has advanced to the round of 16 after two group games. It's not often that Korean soccer has won two consecutive games in a major tournament - the World Cup, Olympics and Asian Cup - to avoid the "what if" of a third round matchup.

South Korea, coached by Hwang Sun-hong, won their second men's soccer group game at the Hangzhou Asian Games 4-0 against Thailand in Jinhua, Zhejiang province, China, on Nov. 21. The two wins, which followed a 9-0 first-leg victory over Kuwait on Sept. 19, gave the Koreans six points and secured them a spot in the round of 16 regardless of the outcome of their final group game against Bahrain on Sept. 24. 토토사이트 South Korea were also drawn in the same group as Bahrain at the 2018 Asian Games in Jakarta-Palembang, where they cruised to a 6-0 win, with Hwang Eui-jo scoring a hat-trick.

Earlier in the day, the two teams drew 1-1 in the Kuwait-Bahrain match in the same group. Bahrain (two draws) has two points, while Thailand and Kuwait are tied at one point apiece with one draw and one loss. The four best performers from the 12 first- and second-place teams in each of the six groups will advance to the round of 16.

South Korea broke the game open early, scoring four goals in the first half, starting with Hong Hyun-seok's first goal in the 15th minute. Ahn Jae-joon in the 20th minute, Uhm Won-sang in the 39th, and Lee Jae-ik in first-half stoppage time rattled the net. Ahn and Uhm Won-sang found the back of the net for the second straight game. After recording nine shots (seven on target) in the first half, Korea dominated the game, holding Thailand to just one shot on target.

Lee Kang-in joins Hwang Sun-hong Lee Kang-in (left), who joined the South Korean national soccer team on Nov. 21, chats with national coach Hwang Sun-hong on the bench before the team's match against Thailand on Sunday. Lee did not play against Thailand.

Lee arrived in Hangzhou this afternoon and joined the squad, but did not play against Thailand. He wasn't even named on the substitutes' list and watched the game from the stands behind the team's bench. 스포츠토토 He smiled and waved to the crowd as they chanted his name. Before the match, he was caught on camera talking to Hwang alone on the bench.

Lee traveled to Hangzhou after playing the first leg of the UEFA Champions League group stage match between his club Paris Saint-Germain and Dortmund (Germany) in Paris, France, on Tuesday. The match marked Lee's return to the field after nearly a month of rehabilitation from a thigh injury. With an early berth in the round of 16, South Korea could afford to save Lee for the third round. It's likely that Lee will either sit out the third match against Bahrain or come on as a substitute to check his fitness.

North Korea won its second straight game in Group F with a 1-0 victory over Kyrgyzstan on Sunday. Kim Kook Jin scored the opening goal in the 20th minute and held on for the win. North Korea needs only a draw against Indonesia in the third leg to advance to the round of 16. Host China also made it two wins in a row, beating Myanmar 4-0 in their second Group A match. 고스톱
