Active corporal, ‘early discharge’ with 1 win… “I can’t get in touch with my comrades”

Shooting Monster’ Cho Young-wook is the only ‘active soldier’ in Hwang Seon-hong. He was promoted to corporal on the 1st to celebrate Armed Forces Day. His expected discharge date is July 14, 2024.

However, if you win just one game, ‘early discharge’ is possible. Hwang Seon-hongho will play the final against Japan at the Huanglong Sports Center Stadium in Hangzhou, China on the 7th. According to the Military Service Act, if an athlete ranks 3rd or higher in the Olympics or 1st in the Asian Games, he or she can serve as an “arts and sports personnel” instead of military service.

Is that why? There has been less contact from the ‘comrades’ who are currently serving in the military with Cho Young-wook. Cho Young-wook, who met in the common press area after the semifinals against Uzbekistan on the 4th, said, “What’s really surprising is that I got a lot of calls before the national team arrived. We talked a lot (about the Asian Games). But after we won well, I got a call. “There is none,” he said with a laugh.

Cho Young-wook is one of Hwang Seon-hong’s key players in this tournament. Manager Hwang Seon-hong’s strategy was completed by his ability to be closer to a 10th striker than a traditional 9th ​​striker. Not only is he putting pressure on the opposing goalkeeper throughout the game, but he is also demonstrating his ability to link up with Eom Won-sang and Jung Woo-young, who have been working together in the age-group national team for a long time.

He is also second on the team with three goals, focusing on his pressing and linking while also putting his shooting ability to the fore. He has already achieved the three goals he set as his goal before the tournament.

Coach Hwang, who was unable to summon Oh Hyun-gyu (Celtic FC), the starting striker for the under-23 national team, due to his team’s circumstances, said when announcing the final entry, “The position I was most worried about was striker.” When Oh Hyun-gyu failed to be selected, he considered selecting Joo Min-gyu as a wild card. However, as Cho Young-wook has established himself, he is boasting powerful offense, scoring 25 goals in 5 games. His 25 goals are even more valuable given that he played most of the game against dense defences.

When Jo Young-wook was told that he achieved his goal with three goals, he said, “Maybe I should have scored five goals… Anyway, the team is currently winning well and has reached the finals, so if a goal is needed, of course I should score a goal, but I am not sure what I can do to help the team win. “We have to think about it first,” he said.토토사이트

As if in a script, Korea’s opponent in the finals was decided to be their ‘rival’ Japan. Hwang Seon-hong-ho remembers being defeated 0-3 by Japan in the quarterfinals of the AFC Asian Cup in June last year. It was doubly shocking in that Japan was competing under the age of 21 at the time. Not only Lee Kang-in but also Jo Young-wook were on the national team.

Jo Young-wook said, “Of course, revenge is necessary, but honestly, even if it’s my first time seeing it, all I can think of is a situation where I have to win at all costs. In my head, the only thing I can do is win. I’m trying to think about how I can win and how I can prepare.”

He continued, “(The game) is on Saturday. I think the chicken restaurant owners in Korea will be very happy,” and “In some ways, I think a good game has been set. The players are also confident because they have overcome the hurdle well. It is the Korea-Japan match, the final. “I’m going to give it my all because I have one step left. I need to win, and all I can think about is winning,” he said, raising his voice.

According to the Korea Football Association, on the 5th, the day after playing against Uzbekistan, Hwang Seon-hong had a lunch of pork belly and broiler sauce at a Korean restaurant in Seoho-gu, and then did recovery training at the hotel starting at 5 p.m., focusing on foam rollers and walks. .

Since the 1951 New Delhi Games in India, when men’s soccer was adopted as an official event in the Asian Games, Korea has won the title five times (1970, 1978, 1986, 2014, 2018) and holds the record for the most wins (Iran four times). If they win this tournament after winning the 2014 Incheon Asian Games and the 2014 Jakarta Palembang Asian Games, they will become the first team in Asian Games history to win three times in a row.
