Veteran tall striker Park Eun-seon (36, Seoul City Hall), who tasted an A-match goal for the first time in 9 years in the previous evaluation match against Zambia, exploded with multi-goals in the second match.
While recording an assist with his unique physical height, he made a proper impression on coach Colin Bell, who had a fight with the strong players in the World Cup.
Park Eun-seon scored a goal in the 34th minute of the second evaluation match against Zambia held at Myr Stadium in Yongin, Gyeonggi-do on the 11th, leading the team to 2-0.
Taking advantage of Zambia’s defense line up, Park Eun-seon, who was aiming for space in the back, ran alone to the penalty box when a long pass came over from the rear, tricked even the goalkeeper with a trick, and gently pushed the ball toward the empty goal post.스포츠토토
In the 8th minute of the second half, Hong Hye-ji (Hyundai Steel) lifted the ball in the center circle and dropped it in front of Lee Geum-min, who overcame the competition with the two defenders and rushed. Lee Geum-min connected it with a sharp right-footed shot to make it 3-0.
One goal and one help was not enough, but in the 44th minute of the second half, he jumped up a cross from the right side in a corner kick situation and shot it down with his head, completing a 5-0 victory.
With this, Park Eun-sun added the 19th and 20th goals in her 42nd A match.
With the goal in the first half, Park Eun-seon broke the record for the oldest scorer in an A-match in women’s soccer, which was set four days ago.
On the 7th, she scored a goal to complete a 5-2 victory in extra time in the second half of the match against Zambia at the World Cup Stadium in Suwon.
With this goal, which came about 9 years after the Asian Cup semifinal match against Australia in May 2014, Park Eun-sun won the honor of the oldest female scorer, surpassing Cho So-hyun (Tottenham, 34 years, 287 days).
Park Eun-seon, who gained her momentum, scored two goals in her second match, extending her record to 36 years and 107 days by four days.
Park Eun-seon, who was once a ‘top player’ in the front line, but she has not been on her national team since the 2015 Women’s World Cup, has recently increased her presence under coach Colin Bell.
In July of last year, she was first called up by Bell ahead of a friendly against Canada, and since then she has consistently been on the call-up list.
This two-game match against Zambia became the stage for Park Eun-sun’s ‘showcase’.
In the first game against Zambia, which was introduced in the second half, Park Eun-sun took control of the air with excellent physical power and proved its effectiveness as a ‘joker’, and coach Bell sent Park Eun-sun as a starter that day.
It is to check the performance of Park Eun-sun, who is starting out, with the World Cup in mind, in which she will have to face the world’s strongest players in terms of her physique and athletic ability.
In fact, Park Eun-seon overcame most of the aerial competition against the Zambian defense that day and kept her right to attack, and showed her striker’s ‘instinct’ by attempting to penetrate the back space in time for a cross or long pass.
In particular, in the second half of the set piece, he shook the net with a header with a high RBI, proving its use in various situations.
The recent ‘chemistry’ (breathing) with director Bell is also good.
After finishing his last game 1, coach Bell praised Park Eun-sun, saying, “Park Eun-sun completely changed the game today.”
Then Park Eun-seon also responded, “Thank you to Coach Bell. It’s an honor for me to join the national team for the first time in a while and for giving me the opportunity, and I’m going to work harder.”
