Seoul E-Land 4 - 0 Chungju Hummel : Recap

With just Goyang to play away from home in this first round of fixtures Seoul E-Land had one last chance to get a home win in the opening quarter of their season. They took it in style against a Chungju team that in all honesty were totally outclassed from start to finish.

Seoul looked the brighter team straight from kick-off and the ever-busy Tarabai was causing them problems with his pace and movement up front. Bobby Cullen, brought in at the expense of Lee Jae-an for this one, was also seeing a lot of the ball although his cutting edge was lacking and his final ball was leaving a bit to be desired. The same could not be said of Kim Young-keun on the other side of the park who was playing a stormer and in the end earned the Man of the Match award with involvement in three of the four goals.

The win did come at a cost though with Carlyle Mitchell being stretchered off in the first-half. A subsequent photo of his ankle in a cast suggests he may be missing for at least a few weeks. Other than that though it was a fairly textbook performance from E-Land with good performances more or less all round. Kim Jae-sung was included as a makeshift right-back and did a sterling job in the role although both full-backs played more as midfielders at times and at points it was two at the back for E-Land. Against better teams that tactic might be exposed but against Chungju they were never particularly troubled.

The goals game in a twenty minute spell either side of half-time and left Chungju looking a bit punch drunk by the end of it.

Punch 1 - Nice work on the left flank and Kim Young-keun floats a ball right onto Joo Min-kyu's head. He nods it home. Chungju look a bit surprised but they shake it off and get back into the fight.

Punch 2 - Joo and Kim combine once again on the left and Kim get's his second assist of the night with a lovely curled low cross onto Tarabai's toe. Chungju look wobbly on their feet now.

Punch 3 - Five minutes later it's a body-blow for Chungju as Kim Jae-sung breaks into the box and cuts back a crisp delivery that Chungju defender Noh Hyung-goo can only deflect into his own goal. Chungju hit the canvas but just about manage to get back on their feet before the referee calls it.

Knockout - Chungju are staggering around the ring looking like Rocky taking a beating from Dolph Lundgren at this point and it only takes 2 minutes for them to be dumped back on the deck. It's Young-keun again with the through-ball and this time Kim Chang-wook latches on to it only to be sent to the deck himself. Tarabai knocks in the penalty and it's all over. Chungju are out for the count.

The win takes E-Land up to 4th in the table while Chungju drop back down to bottom following Gyeongnam's away win at Gangwon. It also means that SEFC's last 4 games have seen 21 goals in total. If you want entertainment there's no better team to follow.

Man of the Match - You could give it to anyone in the Seoul team really. Officially it went to Kim Young-keun for his three assists and can't complain about that. I may have just edged it to Tarabai for his two goals and his constant threat to the opposition.
