Ahn Jae-jun was the hero of the match. Ahn drew a penalty in the fifth minute of the second half as he broke into the penalty box. The ball hit the arm of an opposing defender who was blocking him, and after a video assistant referee (VAR) review, a penalty kick was awarded. Ahn stepped up to take the spot kick and aimed for the left side of the goal. The ball sailed past goalkeeper Lee Sang-wook and into the net. Bucheon then added a late goal from Park Hyung-jin in the 40th minute to secure a valuable victory.
Speaking in the post-match mix zone, Ahn said, “Gimpo is a very difficult team to play against. They are definitely solid and play a lot. I’m happy that we won by two goals to nil against Gimpo, who are unbeaten and have conceded the fewest goals. It was physically difficult because of the hot weather, but we did a good job with our preparation.”
Ahn Jae-jun scored from the penalty spot for the first time in his three-year K League career. He showed his determination to finish, and his teammates gave him the opportunity. When asked about it, Ahn said, “That’s right. It’s the first time. The original kicker was Nilsson Junior, and (Lee) Jung-bin could also kick. Previously, I drew the penalty and gave it to Karyl, but this time I said I wanted to kick it. My brothers said yes, so I was grateful for the opportunity. It was my first time in the K League, but I’m not bad at taking penalties, so I took it confidently.”
On this day, Bucheon invited the families of the players to the stadium. The players held hands with their families as they entered the pitch. At halftime, there was also a family event. Ahn’s mother, who participated in the event, delivered a message of support for her son’s goal in the second half.
“My parents and relatives came,” Ahn said. They come to the stadium almost every home game, but today was different because they escorted me and walked on the pitch with me. It was motivating,” he said. When he shared his mother’s message of support, she replied, “I saw your picture in the halftime event. I’m glad you made it. I would have been scolded if I didn’t,” he laughed.
Ahn’s league record this season is six goals and three assists in 13 games. The goal moved him within one goal of top scorer Lewis (Gimpo, seven goals, two assists) and into a tie for the league lead in attacking points with Lewis and Andrigo (FC Anyang, four goals, five assists). “Being at the top of the league makes me greedy,” Ahn said. When I get a chance to score, I try to be more aggressive. My primary goal is 15 attacking points. I hope to reach it soon.”
