Hwang In-beom (27) is determined to make ‘new history’.
Klinsmann’s men will face Jordan in the quarterfinals of the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Asia Cup Qatar 2023 at the Ahmad Bin Ali Stadium in Al Rayyan, Qatar, on Sunday at 0:00 a.m. ET. It is the last gateway to the final.
Hwang In-Beom has been a key midfielder at the tournament. He started all five matches from the group stage to the quarterfinals, scoring one goal.
Hwang In-beom was “provoked” by a Middle Eastern reporter at the official press conference a day before the game. “Korea has conceded eight goals in this tournament, is it possible to win the title? Also, what is your defensive solution for tomorrow’s game without Kim Min-jae?” the reporter asked.
Hwang In-bum replied, “History is meant to be written. If you want to say that we can’t win because we conceded eight goals, I want to tell you that you’re wrong. We conceded goals, but we also scored a lot of goals. I don’t think our defense will be shaken by Minjae’s absence in tomorrow’s game. I know how good the players behind her are. No matter who goes out, we’ll show up and we want to show that we’re a team that can smile at the end despite conceding a lot of goals.”
When asked about the pressure of winning, Hwang said, “Pressure is something that soccer players have every game, even if it’s not a tournament. It’s a privilege as a player to feel such a situation. I don’t have a big problem. I believe in my teammates and coaching staff, and I will try to repay the fans for their faith. I hope to repay them with good results.”
Inbum Hwang made a mistake in the last match against Australia that led to a goal. “I’m not thinking about the goal or the mistake. Mistakes are part of soccer and we need to look at what led to the goal, but 카지노사이트 like the coach said, I don’t want to dwell on the past. When this tournament is over, I’ll look at the old footage and try to improve as a player. I’ve already forgotten about the previous matches and am only focusing on the next one.”
Hwang also thanked his teammates. “I am learning and feeling so much from this tournament. I’m glad I didn’t play individual sports. I made big and small mistakes during the competition, just like everyone does. I’m proud of the players for letting me do this interview, and I’m glad I chose soccer, a team sport, so I can rely on them so I don’t feel lonely. If someone makes a mistake, I will set an example on the field so that they can rely on me,” he concluded.
