With the victory, South Korea tied up a 9-0 victory over Kuwait in the first round, and with two wins, it confirmed the group’s first place and advance to the round of 16 at an early date without playing against Bahrain in the third round.
An interesting scene came out around the 6th minute of the second half of the game. Central defender Park Jin-seop stepped up as a kicker to kick a corner kick and continued to hesitate without kicking the ball as a kicker. It was a very strange scene, and when the referee went to Park Jin-seop and gave him a yellow card, Park Jin-seop stepped down without kicking a corner kick.
This was an intentional yellow card. Park Jin-seop, who received a yellow card in the match against Kuwait, intentionally received a yellow card to take advantage of the rule that if he becomes two warnings during the tournament, he cannot play the next game. As a result, he will not be able to play against Bahrain in the third round, but instead, he will not matter if he receives a yellow card in the round of 16. Since he has already confirmed the top spot in the group, Park Jin-seop was deliberately given a yellow card to come out of the tournament game without a risk of warning than in Game 3.
Park Jin-seop also admitted through the media after the game that he intentionally received a yellow card. KBS commentator Lee Young-pyo was the one who predicted Park Jin-seop’s behavior in advance. Lee Young-pyo, a member of the committee, said during the extra time of the first half, “If we have 4-0 room like this, Park Jin-seop’s card can be an opportunity to rob us.
Later, when Park Jin-seop really intentionally received a yellow card, Lee Young-pyo, a member of the committee, added, If you go to the tournament enough to take a yellow card on purpose and take a break from a game, each card is really precious. He is also a member of the committee, Lee Young-pyo, who predicted yellow card operations in advance.
