The Korean national under-20 (U-20) soccer team led by coach Kim Eun-joong arrived at Incheon International Airport on the afternoon of the 14th. Kim Eun-joong recently achieved the splendid feat of finishing fourth at the 2023 FIFA U-20 World Cup held in Argentina.
It is the 3rd and 4th place in the history of Korean men’s soccer in a FIFA-sponsored competition. It is the first time since the 1983 U-20 World Cup in Mexico and the 2002 Korea-Japan World Cup.
Until the tournament, there was not much interest in Kim Eun-joong. This is because he did not have a ‘national ball’ star level player. In the 2017 U-20 World Cup, there were Lee Seung-woo and Baek Seung-ho. Since Lee Kang-in played in the 2019 U-20 World Cup, even before the tournament, the U-20 national team received a lot of attention.
In addition to Kim Eun-joong, there were Bae Jun-ho, who was already recognized as a big prospect in Daejeon Hana Citizen, and Kim Ji-soo, who was receiving attention from Premier League Brentford, but there were more fans in Korea who did not know about the existence of the two players. As a result, there was an underestimation of Kim Eun-jeung-ho as the valley generation.
It was only that they did not receive external recognition, but the potential of the players confirmed through this tournament was great. It was coach Kim Eun-joong who led the players to demonstrate their full potential. Coach Kim Eun-joong created a ‘one team’ through players who had little to no professional experience yet. He formed a realistic strategy and led to the 4th round through tactics that brought out only the strengths of the players.
Director Kim Eun-joong said at the welcome event held at Incheon Airport’s 2nd Transportation Center, “Our players did not receive much attention until the start of the competition. However, through this competition, the players proved it. “He praised the performance of the players more than himself.
Director Kim Eun-joong took care of his disciples until the end. He said, “This is not the end. I would like to see him play many games by winning the competition with himself and his seniors after returning to his team. I hope the players will grow a lot for the future of Korean football. Leader I want to say thank you as a player. I don’t think there’s anything better than saying thank you to the players.”
