Goalkeeper Yu Sang-Hun saved three spot-kicks as FC Seoul beat Pohang Steelers, a South Korean football club based in North Gyeongsang, 3-0 in a dramatic penalty shoot-out after 210 minutes of play to reach the AFC Champions League semi-finals on Wednesday (Aug 27).
It was then that Yu emerged the hero for the hosts at the Seoul World Cup Stadium.
Let's check out these brilliant saves:
The first save: Penalty taken by Pohang Steelers' captain, Hwang Ji-soo.
The second save: Penalty taken by Kim Jae-Sung
The third save: Penalty taken by Park Hee-Chul
Kim Jin-Kyu also missed a penalty for FC Seoul but Everton Santos, Osmar Barba and Mauricio Molina converted for the 2013 runners-up to send them through to the last four once again.
FC Seoul will face either defending champions Guangzhou Evergrande of China or Australia’s Western Sydney Wanderers in the semi-finals with the first leg in Seoul on Wednesday (Sept 17).
