Right after scoring a goal against Gyeongnam FC, Chungnam Asan striker Song Seung-min hugged and shared joy with the youth players. There was a story behind the goal ceremony with youth players who were not teammates.
Song Seung-min 스포츠토토scored an additional goal in the 13th minute of the second half when the score was tight 1-1 in the 9th round of the Hana 1 Q K League 2 2023 held at Asan Yi Sun-shin Sports Complex at 1:30 pm on the 23rd. Song Seung-min’s additional goal did not lead to victory. This is because just before the end of the game, Gyeongnam Park Min-seo gave up a run and the game ended 2-2.
Song Seung-min, who met with the reporters after the match, expressed deep regret, saying, “I’m so sorry. It was a match that I caught, but it ended in a draw. It feels like I lost.” However, even though his own score was overshadowed, Song Seung-min was pleased to say it was an “unforgettable day”.
There was good reason. Song Seung-min shook Gyeongnam’s net that day by finishing the ball that Park Min-seo tenaciously passed in front of the gate with a neat shot. Song Seung-min, who was looking toward the bench with a bright smile, soon pointed somewhere with his finger and ran.
The final destination for Song Seung-min was next to the bench where the Chungnam Asan U-18 players who were in charge of the stretcher were seated. Song Seung-min enjoyed the joy of hugging the youth players. A goal ceremony with youth players in charge of the stretcher, not with fellow players. It was a first-time sight that aroused curiosity.
Song Seung-min said, “I was warming up because the coach told me to prepare for the second half, but the youths who were in charge of the stretcher next to me said, ‘Hyung, make sure to score a goal when you go in.’ I’ll score it. What should I do?’ Then he said, ‘I’ll score a goal and come to us.’ That was the state of promise,” he explained the background of the special goal ceremony.
On the day of the game, the promise of an impromptu goal ceremony came true like a lie. Song Seung-min, who was amazed, said, “But the goal really went in. It became a reality in about 10 minutes.” After scoring the goal, Song Seung-min said, “I ran to keep my promise, but even the youth kids were amazed and said, ‘This really happens.’ It was a great experience for them, and I think it will remain in their memory for the rest of their lives. Of course, it was a special goal that I will remember for the rest of my life, “he said, saying that it was a meaningful day thanks to him.
Song Seung-min continued, “Unfortunately, the game ended in a draw, so we didn’t have time to talk separately.
Song Seung-min, who usually enjoys reading, brought books to the stadium on this day without fail. The title of the book is <The person who can eventually do anything>. I think it’s a perfect phrase for Song Seung-min, who kept his promise with youth players.
