Hwang Eui-jo (30, FC Seoul) is off to a bad start in the national soccer team under coach Jurgen Klinsmann (58). Can Hwang Eui-jo, the only one among the three strikers who did not get a chance against Colombia, play an active role against Uruguay?
The Korean national soccer team, led by coach Klinsman, will play a home match against Uruguay in the March A-match evaluation match at Seoul World Cup Stadium at 8:00 pm on the 28th.
The national team, which drew 2-2 in the evaluation match against Colombia held at Munsu Soccer Stadium in Ulsan on the 24th, returned to the Paju NFC (National Football Team Training Center) on the 26th after a break and began training in preparation for the match against Uruguay. It is a rematch with Uruguay about four months after meeting at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. At that time, Korea drew 0-0.
On the 27th, the day before the game against Uruguay, coach Klinsman held a pre-game press conference at the NFC in Paju, saying, “I am still cautious about mentioning any changes.”
The players who were unable to play against Colombia desperately need to play against Uruguay to prove their performance in front of the new national coach Klinsman. And one of the most desperate players is Hwang Eui-jo, who was once the main striker of the national team. 스포츠토토
From the launch of Paulo Bentuho in September 2018 until just before the World Cup in Qatar in November 2022, the main character of ‘Bentuho’s most goals’ was Hwang Eui-jo (15 goals in 38 matches). Based on these performances, Hwang Eui-jo, who firmly maintained the national team’s undisputed one-top start, also shone in Bordeaux of the French Ligue 1, which was his team at the time. He scored a total of 29 goals in three seasons at Bordeaux, breaking the Ligue 1 Asian record for the most goals held by Park Joo-young (25 goals).
