Technical support issues
Pohang won the FA Cup for the first time in 10 years since 2013 thanks to Hong Yoon-sang's goal with Kim Jong-woo's come-from-behind goal even after giving up the first goal and a 1-2 lead in the 2023 Hana One Q FA Cup final at Pohang won the FA Cup for the first time in 10 years since 2013.
In fact, Pohang played at home, but until the beginning of the second half, it seemed to be behind Jeonbuk. Pohang, which gave Song Min-gyu the first goal in the 16th minute of the first half, was dragged 1-2 when Gustavo scored a penalty kick in the 5th minute of the second half.
However, Pohang, which tied the game 2-2 with Zeka's goal in the 28th minute of the second half, rose to the top four minutes later, with Kim Jong-woo's come-from-behind goal followed by Hong Yoon-sang's wedge goal.
Coach Kim Ki-dong finally lifted the trophy in the second final after taking the helm. Coach Kim Ki-dong, who has been in charge of Pohang since 2019, reached the final of the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Champions League in 2021, but lost to Al Hilal (Saudi Arabia) 0-2 to finish second.
Coach Kim, who attended the press conference after beating Jeonbuk and celebrating the championship, said, "It's my first championship since I became a coach. I'm glad it's a moment I've always dreamed of," he said. "I looked at it calmly and happily with my father's heart because the winners are not me but the players."
Coach Kim's mercenary skills shone behind Pohang's victory. Coach Kim excluded Shin Kwang-hoon and Kim In-sung in the 10th minute of the second half, trailing 1-2, and put in Hong Yoon-sang and Shim Sang-min, and in the 30th minute of the second half, he scored an equalizer, but brought in Zeka, who looked tired, and let Lee Ho-jae run.
Pohang, which strengthened its mobility through replacement, later plagued Jeonbuk's defense and eventually scored a come-from-behind goal and a wedge goal, making it 4-2 to virtually confirm its victory.
