Ahead of the Asian Games, Eom Won-sang (24, Ulsan Hyundai) expressed his determination.
On the 15th, Um Won-sang faced reporters at the NFC (National Football Team Training Center) in Paju and said, “Like all players, it is an honor to come to the national team. During the short call-up period, we have to show what the coach wants.”
On this day, head coach Hwang Seon-hong called 24 K-League players under the age of 24 who can participate in the Asian Games. Although the K-League season is in full swing, there are few opportunities to keep pace until September when the tournament is held. It is also a plan to share team tactics at this convocation. This is also the reason Song Min-kyu (Jeonbuk Hyundai) and Cheon Seong-hoon (Incheon United), who are injured, also joined.
Eom Won-sang said, “(Coach Hwang) doesn’t seem to want anything from the K-League players. All players know that the call-up period for the Asian Games is short. He said, “I think the coach sees unity with the players as the main focus.”
Um Won-sang’s 2nd line is considered the best among the Asian Games teams ever. In addition to K-League players such as Song Min-kyu, Ko Young-jun (Pohang Steelers) and Um Ji-seong (Gwangju FC), Lee Kang-in (Mallorca) is likely to join. Eom Won-sang, born in 1999 and the oldest member of the Asian Games national team, said, “The young players are doing very well. I have to use my strengths well,” he emphasized.카지노사이트
In particular, there are several members of the 2019 U-20 World Cup. Eom Won-sang said, “It is true that the players are good and know the play they like. Since the roster has changed a lot, it is important to understand the tendencies of all players. Players can change in the Asian Games, so it is important to unite with new players.”
The Asian Games are sometimes evaluated as a ‘failure’ if they do not win a gold medal. For players, it can be a bit of a burden. Korea won the gold medal at the 2018 Jakarta-Palembang Asian Games. Um Won-sang said, “It is not in a position to compare with the team five years ago. There are many good players in this team, and they are doing well within their team,” he said. “Korea is a strong team in Asia, and I rather like this pressure. If we follow the path of our seniors while enjoying it, there will be results.”
