‘Incheon goal is to win,’ declares coach Cho Sung-hwan, “I’m all-in no matter who the quarterfinal opponent is”

Incheon United are heading to their first quarterfinal in eight years as they aim to win the FA Cup. Head coach Cho Sung-hwan hasn’t hidden his desire to win 안전놀이터.

Cho’s side defeated Suwon Samseong 3-2 in the fifth round (quarterfinals) of the 2023 Hana OneQ FA Cup at their home stadium, Incheon Football Stadium, on Nov. 28, thanks to a multi-goal performance from Chun Sung-hoon.

With the win, Incheon reached the quarterfinals for the first time in eight years after finishing as runners-up in 2015, their highest-ever FA Cup finish. Incheon had set a season goal of winning the FA Cup this year, and reaching the semifinals pushed them even further toward that goal.

Coach Cho also weighed in on the result. “I don’t want to discuss the performance or the number of goals,” he said, “It was a game we should have won. Now we will focus on recovery for the next game,” he said, expressing satisfaction with the victory 토토사이트순위.

Cho did not attach any significance to the defensive mistakes that were exposed in the game. “Throughout the season, there are individual and team mistakes,” he said, “and I think the players themselves know better. They shouldn’t repeat it,” he said, calling for individual improvement.

Incheon, who have always been a favorite of Suwon, were able to pull off the upset thanks to a multi-goal performance from Cheon Seong-hoon. Chun rattled the net twice in his return after nearly two months out with a calf injury.

Coach Cho said, “Chun’s goals are encouraging, but his match fitness is still lacking. I think he will help us a lot in the league based on today’s game,” Cho said, adding that he hopes he can get fitter.

With the addition of Incheon, the FA Cup quarterfinals have become even more competitive. With teams like Jeonbuk Hyundai and Pohang Steelers still performing well in the league, it will be a tough challenge.

“We will go all-in because we want to win the title no matter who our opponent is,” Cho said, “We have a bridgehead to the title by advancing to the quarterfinals. It doesn’t matter who the opponent is, it’s all about us.”
