먹튀검증 A ceremony for the injured captain touched the fans.
Seongnam FC suffered a 1-2 upset loss to FC Anyang in the 15th round of the Hana OneQ K League 2 2023 at Tancheon Sports Complex at 6:30 p.m. on Nov. 27. Seongnam’s unbeaten run took a hit and they remain in seventh place in the standings.
They started well, taking the lead with a goal from Lee Jong-ho, but gradually gave up the offense. When they counterattacked with Chris, he committed a dangerous foul on Lee Chang-yong, which resulted in a direct red card. Outnumbered, they conceded consecutive goals to Kim Dong-jin and Park Jae-yong in the second half and eventually lost 1-2.
Despite the loss, the ceremony for Shim Dong-woon was touching. Shim was named captain of Seongnam this season, leading the team and looking sharp on the flanks. His kicking ability has been a great weapon for Seongnam. A consistent performer, Shim started the last match against Ansan Greeners but went down with an injury in the 27th minute and was replaced by Jeong Jung-min.
He was later diagnosed with an anterior cruciate ligament tear. “We were going to give him two more weeks to see if he’s out for the season, but unfortunately, it’s been concluded that he can’t play anymore,” said a Seongnam official.
Even before the game, the announcers in the stadium showed their support for Shim Dong-woon. After scoring his goal, Lee Jong-ho ran to the Seongnam bench and picked up the jersey with Shim’s number 11 on it. His teammates joined him for the ceremony. They shared the joy of scoring with the captain who wasn’t on the field.
While Kim Dong-jin and Park Jae-yong stole the spotlight with their stunning ceremonies, Lee Jong-ho’s ceremony for Shim Dong-woon was just as poignant and cool.
Meanwhile, Seongnam was left with a gaping hole in their flanking attack due to Sim Dong-woon’s injury and Chris’ ejection. In the post-match press conference, coach Lee Ki-hyung said, “Our players are neither exceptional nor inferior. Kim Won-jun, Jeon Sung-soo, Shin Jae-won, and others are waiting in the wings. They are training hard and improving their physical condition. So I don’t think there will be a big problem with the vacancy,” he said.
