Coach Kim Eun-joong of the Korean national under-20 soccer team, which was caught in Italy, encouraged the players by saying, “Although I was disappointed with the result, the players did well.”

At a press conference after the 2023 FIFA U-20 World Cup semi-final against Italy held at La Plata Stadium in Argentina on the 9th, coach Kim said, “I led the game well as I prepared, but it was a disappointing result as I could not score at the chance. It seems to have come out,” he said.메이저놀이터

Korea lost 1-2 that day and was unable to advance to the final and was pushed back to the 3rd and 4th place matches. Kim Eun-joong, who dreamed of recreating the glory of the 2019 Poland U-20 World Cup, stopped just before the final, just before he reached the final and runner-up for the first time in a FIFA men’s competition.

Coach Kim said, “As we approached the second half, our players’ concentration and stamina were superior, so we created a good opportunity.”

However, coach Kim put his regret aside and expressed his gratitude to the players who played their best. He said, “The players devoted more to the team than anyone else and poured out more than 100%,” and “the players did their best until the end, but I think they showed tears because they were sorry. He continued, “The players must have been very upset because they participated in the competition without receiving high expectations, but they did not express themselves even to the coaches and came this far with only one goal, and they proved their worth on the playground. I want to applaud them because they poured everything in.”

Putting the frustration of reaching the final behind, Kim Eun-joong-ho now dreams of a lasting beauty in the 3rd and 4th place matches against Israel. Coach Kim said, “The players will be mentally tough, but since the 3rd and 4th place matches are our last matches, we will try to finish well. I will recover well and play a game without regrets.”
