Al-Shabab’s Kim Seung-kyu suffers 4-goal defeat against Al-Nasr
Conceded two PKs to Ronaldo…and one to Mane.
By Park Dae-rae Reporter = Al-Shabab’s Kim Seung-kyu, who is on the verge of joining Jürgen Klinsmann’s national team, conceded back-to-back goals to superstars such as Cristiano Ronaldo and Sadio Mane in a 0-4 defeat.
Al-Shabab suffered a heavy 0-4 defeat away to Al-Nasr in the fourth round of the Saudi Pro League 2023-2024 season at KSU Stadium in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, on Tuesday (April 30).
The result drops Al-Shabab to 17th place out of 18 teams in the league with two draws and two points this season. Al-Nasr, on the other hand, rebounded with two straight wins after two losses to move up to sixth place.
Kim Seung-kyu started in goal for Al-Shabab. Kim saved a right-footed shot from Alnasr Brozovic in the ninth minute of the first half when the score was 0-0, but the Alnasr offense was unable to capitalize.
With the score still 0-0 in the 12th minute, a handball foul by Al-Shabab awarded Al-Nasr a penalty kick. Ronaldo stepped up to take the kick, fooled Kim Seung-gyu, and rattled the net.
In the 38th minute, Kim Seung-gyu added another goal from the penalty spot. Ronaldo dribbled inside the penalty box to draw a foul. Kim Seung-gyu read the direction of Ronaldo’s penalty kick but couldn’t touch the ball.
Down 0-2, Al Shabab conceded another goal in the 40th minute. After receiving a pass from Ronaldo, Mane leaned in and hit a powerful direct shot with his right foot that Kim Seung-gyu failed to defend.
Kim also conceded a goal to Sultan Al Ghannam in the 35th minute of the second half when the score was 0-3.
Despite making a few saves on the day, Kim was unable to overcome the sending off of his teammate Banega and the overall decline in team performance.온라인카지노
This is the second time Kim has conceded four goals in a game since moving to the Saudi League in July last year. Kim gave up four goals against Al-Ahfatech on Dec. 26, right after the World Cup in Qatar last year, as the team lost 1-4.
The South Korean goalkeeper will play a league match against Alkalis, which features former national teammate Jung Woo-young, three days from now before traveling to England to play in Cleethorpes’ two September A matches.
