Gen MZ athletes enjoy training…the problem is the ‘turf variable’

A day before the quarterfinals, the players walked lightly onto the training field for a final warm-up.

Lee Young-jun, the tall striker, is carrying a large speaker with his own music.

The team is tired from the hard work of the quarterfinals, but the upbeat music lifts their spirits.

[Lee Ji-han, U20 National Soccer Team: “(Lee) is playing a role (in raising the mood), and it’s important that the mood always stays good, so we talk about fun things to keep the mood up as much as possible.”]

During the two-team training sessions, the team worked on quick offensive transitions and counterattacks, as well as tactics to exploit Italy’s weaknesses on the flanks.

Compared to the quarterfinals, which were played on two days’ rest, the team will have three days off before the semifinals, so they are in good shape.

[Lee Seung-won, U-20 national soccer team: “I’m thinking that if I (as captain) can be seen to sacrifice more for the players, better results will follow.”]

However, the pitch was potholed in places and Kim called it the worst grass of the tournament.

Unlike us, who had to quickly adapt to an unfamiliar surface, Italy had played the round of 16 at this stadium before.

The players who dreamed of repeating the miracle their seniors performed four years ago are now aiming for greater heights.
