Four years ago, the U-20 World Cup was a showcase for Lee Kang-in (Mallorca). Wearing the number 10, which stands for ace, he led Korea to the U-20 World Cup runner-up and was even awarded the Golden Ball.
Time flies and a new generation heads to the finals of the U-20 World Cup. The ace number 10 uniform belongs to Bae Jun-ho (Daejeon Hana Citizen) in this national team, where coach Kim Eun-joong takes the baton and aims to create another myth.
Bae Jun-ho is a supernova that gives a pleasant shock this year. Even at the young age of 20, he has established himself as a key resource leading a blast in the early season. Bae Jun-ho, who has already experienced the professional stage through K-League 2 last year, is gradually improving after playing 7 K-League 1 matches with his skills, not the U22 compulsory allotment this season.
In the national team by age group, he was treated as an ace early on. Last March, at the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Asian Cup, where Kim Eun-joong obtained a ticket to the U-20 World Cup finals, he showed off his tactical understanding and individual skills, freely moving between the sides and center. With the World Cup ahead, Bae Jun-ho, who has been the most consistent in real life, is receiving great expectations.
From the uniform number, it shows Bae Jun-ho’s position in the national team. Bae Jun-ho, who proudly wore number 10 and trained at the Paju National Football Team Training Center (NFC) on the 7th, said, “I have a desire to do well in the World Cup. I plan to play more aggressively and boldly than usual.”
If Lee Kang-in was the ace four years ago, now he is Bae Jun-ho. Comparison is unavoidable. Bae Jun-ho said, “I don’t know if I can do it like Lee Kang-in, but I will definitely have a role to play.” 먹튀검증
Ahead of the World Cup, I am carefully listening to the advice of my older brothers. Bae Jun-ho said, “Since I’m on a big stage, people around me cheer me on a lot. Kim Hyun-woo, who participated in the World Cup four years ago, gave me advice on the atmosphere at the stadium, and Joo Se-jong and Lee Jin-hyun told me to work hard as usual. Lee Min-seong The director also told me to do well and come back.”
Kim Eun-joong prepares for a quiet rebellion just as the national team did four years ago. Coach Kim Eun-joong said, “Passing the group stage is the first goal,” but did not hide his confidence, saying, “If we prepare well, we can achieve good results.”
Bae Jun-ho showed Ace’s aspirations, saying, “I don’t feel pressure about my grades four years ago. I haven’t talked about my goal with my colleagues, but I personally want to go to the semifinals.”
