Tiger Fight, October 21. The two South Korean referees specially invited by the Chinese Football Association have arrived in Suzhou and Dalian. They are likely to make their debut in tomorrow's game.
According to some domestic media reports, the focus of Beijing Guoan’s battle against Shandong Luneng tomorrow will not be enforced by local referees, but by South Korean referee Jin Xikun.
As early as 2018, Jin Xikun came to the Super League four times in law enforcement games, including three Super League matches and one FA Cup match. Coincidentally, two of these four games are Luneng and two are Guoan.
In the two games of Beijing Guoan where Jin Xikun was the referee, national security had the last laugh. In the league against Hebei China Fortune, Guoan beat its opponent 6-3. In the Football Association Cup against Shanghai SIPG, although Guoan lost 1-2 in regular time, he defeated his opponent 5-4 in a penalty shootout to advance.
On Luneng's side, Jin Xikun can be said to be their "catastrophe". In the league between Suning and Luneng, Jin Xikun sent off with a red card to relax at the end of the game, and the two sides finally drew 1-1. In the game against Evergrande, Jin Xikun counted a goal from Evergrande that was suspected of fouling as effective. At that time, when Jin Jingdao broke through from the right side, Li Xuepeng had a hand hitting Jin Jingdao’s face, which prevented Luneng’s attack. Jin Xikun did not give a penalty and Hengda counterattacked and scored. This triggered dissatisfaction from Luneng. In the final match, Luneng 1-4 fiasco.
This season, Kim Hee-kun also has a major controversy and penalty when he enforces the Korean domestic league. In the 15th round of the K1 League this year, Kim Hee-kun enforced the game between Suwon Samsung and Ulsan Hyundai. In the 83rd minute, Kim Hee-kun turned a blind eye to the obvious handball foul in the Suwon Samsung penalty area, which made Ulsan Hyundai very angry. They believed that this outrageous penalty ruined their victory. In the end, the game ended 0-0. Ulsan Hyundai In the standings, it was also caught up by Jeonbuk Hyundai.
