Right fullback Kim Tae-hwan (34) of the Korean national soccer team is proud of Seol Young-woo (25), a junior in the same team.
After the national team evaluation match against Uruguay held at the Seoul World Cup Stadium on the 28th, Kim Tae-hwan met reporters in the Mixed Zone and shared his thoughts about Seol Young-woo, his junior with the national team.
In response to the reporter’s question, “Sul Young-woo left a message of thanks for taking good care of him,” he said, “He is a very capable younger brother. He began to brag about his junior, saying, “I’ve noticed him since he was a rookie.
Seol Young-woo is not a player with a lot of experience in the national team, having played 17 matches in all age groups as well as the Universiade representative.
Nonetheless, he was rejected by manager Jurgen Klinsmann. When Kim Jin-soo (Jeonbuk) left due to a back injury, he was summoned after watching the K-League for a short period of time.
Kim Tae-hwan, who has watched him grow as a senior on the team, did not hide his feelings as a senior, saying, “I didn’t say this to the player before, but I’m so proud and proud.” “Working out with the same national team itself seemed a little (impressive) to me,” he couldn’t continue.
This was Seol Young-woo’s first call to the A national team. Unfortunately, he was unable to play.
Kim Tae-hwan said, “This is the first time. I think I will continue to come (to the national team) in the future. If you show good performance here, you will continue to be selected,” he said, emphasizing that the future of his juniors is bright. 안전놀이터
The appearance of the junior is admirable, but the result of the match is disappointing. He looked back on the match that day, losing 1-2, saying, “It’s a pity that we couldn’t win in front of a large crowd.”
Playing side by side with attacker Lee Kang-in from now on and left fullback Lee Ki-je on the other side, he praised Lee Kang-in as “a very good player” and said, “He helped me to play well from behind.”
