'Volleyball Empress' Kim breathes a sigh of relief: "We can't repeat last year's mistakes"

![](https://files.readme.io/310503b-image.png) After a thrilling come-from-behind victory in the first round of the Women's Professional Volleyball Playoffs, "Volleyball Empress" Kim Yeon-kyung (Heungkuk Life) let out a deep sigh as she walked into the interview room. It was a clear indication that the match was physically and mentally challenging. At the same time, there was also a sense of relief that she had won a difficult match. Heungkuk Life defeated Jeong Kwanjang 3-1 (22-25 25-13 25-23 25-23) in three sets in the first round of the Professional Volleyball Jeong Kwanjang 2023-24 V League Women's Playoffs (PO) at the Incheon Samsan Gymnasium on Nov. 22. Heungkuk Life, which finished second in the regular season after battling Hyundai E&C for the lead until the very end, has a 100 percent chance of qualifying with a win. In the 17 previous Women's POs, every team that won the first round has advanced to the championship match. The path to victory was not easy. They had a shaky start to the match, dropping the first set. With the score tied at 1-1, the third set was a close one, 16-22, but they pulled off a dramatic comeback to win. On the day, Kim contributed 23 points, the second most on the team after foreign player Willow Johnson (registered name Willow - 25 points). But it was her defense that really stood out, as she collected a team-high 25 digs, including four that went directly to the setter. Her defense saved Heungkuk's life at crucial moments. "We could have easily won today, but we gave up the flow and made it difficult," Kim said in a post-match interview. "We cheered and encouraged each other and overcame the crucial moments, and our concentration came alive at the end to win the match." Kim credited Willow, the team's top scorer, for the victory, saying, "The whole team's mood has improved since she came," and praised Willow, saying, "I think she knows that all the players are looking at her, and she's trying harder to improve the atmosphere." In truth, the offense didn't go well. The setter's toss was long, making it difficult for even Kim Yeon-kyung to execute the offense perfectly. "We practiced a lot of situations where the ball falls out of the net," Kim said, "but my toss wasn't very good today, so I think I need to work on it more. I think we need to prepare more for the second game as there are some things that worked well in training but didn't work in the match." After a day's rest, Heungkuk Life will play the second leg of the playoffs on April 24 in Daejeon, home of Jeonggwanjang. In the history of the playoffs, the team that wins the first leg has advanced to the championship game 100% of the time. However, Heungkuk Life has a painful memory of last season's championship match against Korea Expressway Corporation, when it lost three straight games after winning the first two games. So they decided not to believe in odds or statistics. They're also wary of the slightest hiccup. "We'll have to stay nervous and play well until the end," Kim said, adding, "The second game is an away match, so it will be most important to set the tone early on. We need to show our ability to finish right away," Kim emphasized. "I think this year will be different from last year. In last season's championship game, the road construction was too good and we lost our nerves in the third game," he said, adding, "We can't repeat that again this year, so we will prepare well and finish cleanly." <https://www.totosafeguide.com>

Goh Woo-seok minors, Matsui cheers...San Diego awaits KBO's best closer

![](https://files.readme.io/6bbb9b6-image.png) Yuki Matsui, 29, one of the top left-handed closers in Japan's professional baseball, signed with San Diego before the offseason, and he was celebrating in the dugout early in the second game of the 2024 Major League Baseball World Tour Seoul Series at Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul, South Korea, on Wednesday. The team's bats had pounded Yoshinobu Yamamoto (26, Los Angeles Dodgers) for five runs in the first inning. Watching from the dugout, Matsui raised his arms, cheered, screamed, and congratulated his teammates. Fellow Japanese pitcher and national team junior Yamamoto was sweating it out on the mound, but on this day, he was clearly the enemy. In contrast, Go Woo-seok (26, San Diego), who was watching the same scene from the dugout, was overjoyed, but his whole demeanor quickly turned heavy. He tried not to show it, but it was a big shock for him to be left off the opening day roster. The Padres announced their 26-man roster for the season opener against the Dodgers on Tuesday, and Go Woo-seok, who traveled with them to the Seoul Series, was not on it. He continued to practice with his teammates but was not allowed to play. Both players signed with San Diego ahead of the season and were expected to anchor the team's bullpen. Matsui was one of the best closers in Nippon Professional Baseball, and Gowseok was arguably the best closer in the KBO. There were even speculations that either of them could be the team's closer. However, the opening day odds were mixed. Go, who signed a two-year contract with San Diego, has a minor league veto next year, but not this year. Unlike Koo, who spent the first two days with a dark look on his face, Matsui made his major league debut. Matsui pitched ⅔ scoreless innings in Game 1 on the 20th and ⅔ scoreless innings in Game 2 on the 21st. His pitches weren't the cleanest, but he worked out of trouble and didn't give up any runs. It was a nerve-wracking start, but in a way, he got over the hump of his first start. Now Matsui can relax a little bit and get ready for the next game. On the contrary, Koo now awaits a trip to the minor leagues. There is some speculation in the local media that he will be sent to Double-A instead of Triple-A. It's not because he's not good enough for Triple-A. What San Diego is looking for from him now is not his performance in the minors, but his body and his pitches at 100%. They don't even expect 120 percent. If he gives them what he has, I'm sure he'll be good enough for their bullpen. If that's the case, it's better to send him to Double-A and let him focus on his pitches in isolation. It makes sense. San Diego manager Mike Shields said it was a very difficult decision to send him down. But it's better to give him time to get back in shape now, and at some point, he envisions him coming back fully and finishing the season. I've made sure to convey that to him. He left South Korea again, promising to improve in all areas. "It was a tough decision to leave him off the roster for the game in Korea, and he handled it very professionally," Schildt said ahead of Game 1 on Tuesday. Again, it was a tough decision, a tough conversation, but he handled it very well," he said, adding, "We have some depth in the bullpen, and that was a big part of the decision." Schildt was quick to point out that Kouzuk's preparation for the season was slower than other players due to contractual and other issues, and that was one reason he didn't catch up to the others. It wasn't his fault, he said, it was the environment. "We are confident that he will help us at some point," Sylt said. "He just has to continue to work through the process, continue to work on his mechanics, continue to work on his command, continue to work on getting all his pitches to work together. If we do that, he'll be back to help us," he said, hoping for a healthy return. <https://www.totopick.pro>

Bellingham "Dyer is better than Upamecano!" → Chuameni "Please...not really" debate

![](https://files.readme.io/cd0e729-image.png) Real Madrid players debate whether Eric Dier or Dayo Upamecano is a better player. "Real Madrid stars have argued over Bayern Munich players," German outlet FCBinsider reported on April 22. Aurélien Chouameni said: "We talked about Dybala and Upamecano. Jude Bellingham spoke about Dyer and I spoke about Upamecano," the report said. Bellingham praised Dyer. Bellingham said, "Dyer is an unbelievable guy. He's better than Upamecano," to which Chuameni replied, "No, no, no. No, please, no, no," Chouameni replied. Bellingham backed his England teammate Dyer, while Chouameni backed his French teammate Upamecano. Dyer is a longtime Tottenham Hotspur center back. Dier first came to prominence as a defensive midfielder. His good physicality and kicking ability made him influential in the middle of the park and earned him a call-up to the England national team. However, when he moved to center back, his problems became apparent. Dyer's slow feet and poor judgment became Spurs' weaknesses. As Dyer continued to start, the Spurs defense was shaky at every turn. The arrival of Enze Postecoglou this season has narrowed Dyer's role. Postecoglou has used Micky van der Vaan and Cristian Romero as his first-choice center backs, with Dyer on the bench. Even when van der Vaan and Romero were injured at the same time, he used a fullback instead of Dyer. Dyer's chance came. Bayern Munich, in need of reinforcements at center back and defensive midfield, signed him on loan. Dyer was expected to be a backup, but recently he even pushed Kim Min-Jae out of the starting center back role. However, he still looked shaky defensively. Upamecano has been considered a good center back since his time at Leipzig. He has good athleticism, speed, and physicality to compete with his opponents. He"s also very good on his feet, which is why many teams were interested in signing him. The winner of the bidding war was Munich. In the 2021-22 season, Upamecano wore the jersey of Munich. Upamecano was a solid defender for the Bavarians, but he made some costly mistakes in the second half of the season. With the arrival of Kim Min-Jae to Munich this season, many expected Upamecano to be relegated to the bench, but he was chosen by Thomas Tuchel and has flourished as a starter. <https://www.oncasinosite.net>

'Finally unleashing the potential?' Yokichi has a new ally

Michael Porter Jr. is on fire. The Denver Nuggets defeated the New York Knicks 113-100 in the 2023-2024 NBA regular season at the Pepsi Bowl Arena in Denver, Colorado, on Sunday (Feb. 22). Denver's one-two punch led the team to victory. Nikola Jokic and Michael Porter Jr. Jokic was his usual self, scoring 30 points, grabbing 14 rebounds, and dishing out 11 assists. Porter Jr. on the other hand, was nothing short of amazing. Porter Jr. scored 31 points and grabbed eight rebounds, the most of any player in the game. What made his performance so impressive was his efficiency. Porter Jr. made 13 of his 16 field goals, showing tremendous accuracy from deep. He missed just 3 of 6 three-pointers and was 10 of 10 from two-point range for a 100 percent success rate. The chemistry between Porter Jr. and Jokic was incredible on this night. There were several plays where Jokic would grab a rebound and make a pinpoint pass to a sprinting Porter Jr. for an easy bucket. There were also times when Porter Jr. was the ball handler himself and played 2-on-2 with Jokic. After getting a feel for the game with mid-range shots and fast break points, Porter Jr. exploded for three-pointers. It was a perfect game that made you wonder if Jokic and Porter Jr. have ever been this good together. What makes Porter Jr.'s performance even more inspiring is that it was against New York. Tom Thibodeau's New York is one of the best defenses in the NBA. Against such a team, Porter Jr. had a dominant performance. But the celebration was short-lived, as Denver suffered a setback. Jamal Murray left the game with an ankle injury. The injury appeared to be serious, which is a huge blow for Denver as they are in a tight race for the top of the standings. This made Porter Jr.'s performance all the more important. Denver has an overwhelming offensive weapon in Jokic, but the rest of the team is more of a role player. Murray and Porter Jr. are the only players outside of Jokic who can create cracks in the offense. With Murray expected to be out for the foreseeable future, the onus is on Porter Jr. to step up. On a positive note, Porter Jr. has been playing very well lately. In nine games in March, Porter Jr. is averaging 19.6 points and 6.2 rebounds on 57% shooting from the field and 48% from three-point range. He's averaging nearly 20 points per game, but he's also very efficient. His 48% three-point shooting percentage is among the best in the NBA. Efficiency has been a consistent weakness for Porter Jr. Early in his career, Porter Jr. frustrated Denver fans with his poor shot selection and random long-range attempts. But this season is different. Porter Jr. is taking more easy shots off of Jokic's passes, and he's attempting fewer uncontested shots. Denver is the defending champions, having won the NBA title last season. Denver was led by Jokic and Murray. Add to that the contributions of bench players like Aaron Gordon, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, and Bruce Brown, and you have the perfect combination. This season, it's still going strong. The reigning MVP, Jokic, is healthy, and the role players are still there. Add to that Porter Jr. at full strength, and it's a scary thought for opposing teams. But for Denver fans, it's a dream scenario. Denver currently sits in second place in the Western Conference with no games in hand on the Oklahoma City Thunder. The battle for first place is crucial to the MVP race. It's a head-to-head matchup between Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and Jokic. Both players are coming from behind, so the team standings will likely determine the MVP. Will Porter Jr. be able to fill Murray's void and help Jokic win the MVP award? <https://www.sportstoto.link>

North Korea-Japan match "to be referred to FIFA" will not be held on Sept. 26...forfeiture possible

![](https://files.readme.io/7070685-image.png) The North Korea-Japan match has been canceled after North Korea abruptly canceled its home game. The ball is now in the court of the Federation Internationale de Football Association (FIFA). The Asian Football Confederation (AFC) announced on its official website on March 22 (KST) that "the Group B match between North Korea and Japan in the second qualifying round of the 2026 FIFA Confederations Cup North America, Asia, scheduled to be played on March 26 will not be played as scheduled due to unforeseen circumstances." No specific reason was given. "This decision was taken in consultation with FIFA and relevant stakeholders after being informed by the North Korean Football Association on Tuesday of the need to move the match to a neutral venue due to unavoidable circumstances," the AFC said. "The matter will now be referred to the relevant FIFA committees. We will provide further updates in due course." Originally, the match was scheduled to take place at the Kim Il Sung Stadium in Pyongyang on the 26th. However, there was a problem when the North Koreans suddenly announced that they would not be able to host the home game. They didn't even give an exact reason. North Korea's head coach Shin Young-nam was also reticent, saying at a press conference after the team's 0-1 loss to Japan on Nov. 21, "I don't want to talk about the future at this time." According to Japanese media, North Korea cited measures to prevent the spread of severe hemolytic streptococcal disease (STSS), which has been on the rise in Japan. However, there is a lot of confusion because the STSS outbreak in Japan is not that serious. Unexpected variables threw Japan into disarray. The team had planned to immediately travel to Beijing, China, on the 22nd and then fly to North Korea, but that all fell through. For now, the team is staying in Japan and training. The Japanese players are handling the situation calmly. According to Japan's Goal.com, veteran fullback Yumo Nagatomo said, "The mindset is the same. No matter where we play, we just have to look ahead again, including today's challenges," while Takumi Minamino said, "This is the first time something like this has happened. But we knew it was possible," said Takumi Minamino, who added, "Playing in Pyongyang will probably be the most difficult." Japan's head coach Hajime Moriyasu said, "We just have to accept the reality and prepare as best we can. I don't know where and how we will play in the future, but we will focus on the recovery of the tired players and their physical condition to prepare for the next match." The AFC had initially pushed for a neutral venue. "Normally, it's the responsibility of the host country to choose a neutral site," secretary general Dato' Windsor John told AFP on Wednesday. But if they are unable to do so, the AFC will select a neutral site. The match will be played as scheduled." In the end, however, the match will not be played on the 26th. Depending on FIFA's decision, the match could be postponed to the next A-Match period in June or North Korea could be awarded a forfeit. Japanese media outlets, such as Sanking, are weighing in on the possibility of a forfeit, saying that it would be difficult to play another match in June. North Korea's reckless behavior has caused problems not only for Japan, but also for the AFC and FIFA. This isn't the first time North Korean soccer has caused a stir. Late last month, North Korea was scheduled to play Japan at home in the final Asian qualifying match for the Paris 2024 Olympic women's soccer tournament, but the match was moved to Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, after Pyongyang announced it would not be able to host the event. Meanwhile, Japan was the laughing stock in the third match of the second qualifying round between North Korea and Japan in Tokyo, Japan, on June 21. Ao Tanaka's goal in the second minute of the first half gave Japan a 1-0 victory. Japan moved to the top of Group B with three wins from three games (9 points), while North Korea remained in third place with one win and two losses (3 points). <https://www.majortotosite.top>
