Kim Jin-soo got off with an injury and was selected as a replacement… Preparing for Uruguay on the 28th
Seol Young-woo (Ulsan), who was selected for the first soccer team in his life, showed his will not to miss the opportunity that came to him.
On the afternoon of the 26th, Seol Young-woo, who entered the Paju NFC (National Football Team Training Center), met with reporters before training and promised, “I will make the most of my strengths and become a new option for the national team.”
When Kim Jin-soo (Jeonbuk), the main left-back of the national team, left due to a back injury in the warm-up match against Colombia (2-2 draw) on the 24th, coach Jurgen Klinsmann (Germany) selected Seol Young-woo as a replacement.
This is the first time that Seol Young-woo, who was born in 1998 and has been on the soccer team for each age group, has been on the adult national team.
Seol Young-woo said, “When I came to the professional league, my goal was always the national team. I saw and learned a lot from players who were on the national team, such as Jin-soo hyung, (Kim) Moon-hwan hyung (Jeonbuk), and (Kim) Tae-hwan hyung (Ulsan) on the right.” An opportunity came to me unexpectedly due to my brother’s injury. I wish him a speedy recovery. Also, as a glorious opportunity has come to me, I want to seize it.”
The day before, he went to his team’s morning training and heard about the summons from Ulsan coach Hong Myung-bo. He said, “Just hearing the story made my hands tremble and sweaty. I couldn’t tell if it was real or not,” causing laughter.
He continued, “The director said, ‘Don’t show off as a countryhead, don’t be nervous, do what you do. If you want to do something, you can’t do it, so just do what you do.'” 온라인바카라
The left side where Kim Jin-soo is missing is a place the national team needs to fill.
In the match against Colombia, Kim Jin-soo was injured and Ki-je Lee (Suwon) was substituted, but the side collapsed and he gave up 2 goals to the opponent.
Seol Young-woo said, “There will be soccer that the newly appointed coach wants, so it is important to follow it.
He expressed his aspirations, “I can play a defensive role well from behind, and being able to help my midfielders in linked play is my strength. I want to make the most of it.”
The soccer team, joined by Seol Young-woo, will continue to warm up in the Paju NFC and play the second match in March against Uruguay at the Seoul World Cup Stadium at 8:00 pm on the 28th.
