With pre-season now behind us the first competitive outing for Hite Jinro FC is in the KFA Cup 1st Round. Cue magic of the cup;
Also before we start, we have no connection to the Hite Jinro company or any real world football team, this is purely for fun and on Football Manager 2017.
KFA / Korean FA Cup 1st Round
The draw for the first round of the KFA Cup (Korean FA Cup) wasn’t bad but it could have been easier. We drew Joongdong High School away, High School sides in FM17 at least are pretty tough and so we knew it wouldn’t be an easy game. The main 90mins were back a forth leading to extra time and finally penalties. After 10 perfect penalties each the pressure told and we won sending the 480 traveling fans wild and booked our spot in the 2nd round.
Here are the video highlights of the game including the winning penalty;
