Cong Phuong was given a slot in the starting line-up. Park Hang-seo made his appearance in the stadium seating to watch the game.

Cong Phuong received praises and encouragement

Incheon United head coach explained his reason for launching Cong Phuong to the starting lineup:

"He performed very well in the training sessions so he deserved to have a chance to play. Initially, I planned to send Cong Phuong into the field in the second half but the Moon Chang-jin had some health problems, leading to my decision in giving Cong Phuong a chance in the starting lineup."

Losing to Pohang Steelers made Incheon keep being rooted at the bottom of the table with only 6 points after 11 matches. This was the second consecutive match Incheon United had to suffer in K-League since Lim Joong-yong coached the team.

The upcoming match would be a tense challenge to Lim Joong-yong side who set to have an away game against Daegu (4th place on the table) in the next round. Daegu was the team trounced Incheon 3 – 0 right on Incheon’s den in the first leg.
