FC UNITED of MANCHESTER ACADEMY ’A’ TEAM 2 YONG-IN FC (SOUTH KOREA) 2
FC United of Manchester’s Academy ’A’ team drew 2-2 with Yong-in FC from South Korea in an international youth friendly match on the Broadhurst Park 3G on Wednesday afternoon.
After an evenly-matched opening quarter, the touring South Koreans opened the scoring on 19 minutes when FC United failed to clear their lines properly, and LIU, JAE-HYUK was on hand to steer the ball into the unguarded net.
Eight minutes into the second half, and JACK WARD grabbed an equaliser for the home side when he took advantage of good build-up play on the left by Jack O’Leary before scoring comfortably.
The industrious visitors weren’t finished yet, however, and on 58 minutes, the lively JANG HYEOK restored Yong-in FC’s lead with a lofted shot from close-range .
That looked like it might be the end of the scoring, until four minutes from time when STEVE AFFLECK smashed the ball home through a crowded goalmouth to give FC United’s academy team a thoroughly deserved equaliser.
Yong-in FC now play Stalybridge Celtic on Friday whilst FC United of Manchester now look forward to the visit of Crewe Alexandra Youth on Wednesday 24th Augsut 2016 (Kick-off 1.30 p.m.)
