Unlike other weekly weekend updates/roundups, J-league roundups will be sporadic.
|Kim Min-Woo, Kim Min-Hyeok, Baek Sung-Dong, Choi Seung-Kuen
Sagan Tosu vs Gamba Osaka – Game that featured 5 Koreans, Baek Sung-Dong shined the brightest by scoring the game winner. Sagan Tosu defeated defending Champion & treble winner Gamba Osaka 1-0.
Kashima Antlers vs Shonana Bellmare – Rough start to the season for Kashima and Hwang Seok-Ho. HSH played the full 90 mins but his poor marking at the end cost the team as Ailson headed the game winner for 2-1 Shonan Bellmare win.
Kashiwa Reysol vs Vegalta Sendai – Kim Chang-Soo played the full 90 mins in 1-1 draw.
Kawasaki Frontale vs Vissel Kobe – Jung Woo-Young, captain of Vissel Kobe, played the full 90 mins in 2-2 draw.
|Kim Nam-Il, Hwang Jin-Sung
|Lee Yong-Jae, Cho Min-Woo
Cerezo Osaka vs Omiya Ardija – Kim Jin-Hyeon, current #1 GK for Korea and Cerezo Osaka played the full 90 mins in 3-1 win.
Consadole Sapporo vs V-Varen Nagasaki – Gu Sung-Yun should be unfamiliar to many (if not to everyone). Recently selected to represent KNT U-22/23 team for Olympic Qualifiers, he played the full 90 mins against Lee Yong-Jae (won gold at Asian Games). Nagasaki won 1-0 thanks to an assist from Lee Yong-Jae.
Ahh, and here’s a pic of cool TIFO from Consadole Sapporo supporters.
Kyoto Sanga vs Jubilo Iwata – Kim Nam-Il played full 90 mins in 2-0 loss.
