Bae Jun-ho (20, Daejeon), the ace of “Kim Eun-joong-ho,” who was highly praised by the enemy, won the 2023 FIFA U20 World Cup 3 against Israel.・We strengthened our will to win in the 4th place match.
Bae Jun-ho met with reporters at the Estancia Chica training ground near La Plata, Argentina on the 11th (Korean time), the day before the 3rd and 4th place match, and said, “I didn’t make it to the finals that I was aiming for, but I won the last remaining 3rd place match and won the bronze medal. I will return,” he said.메이저사이트
South Korea will play against Israel at La Plata Stadium in La Plata, Argentina on the 12th at 2:30 am for the 3rd and 4th place match of the 2023 FIFA U20 World Cup Argentina.
Kim Eun-joong, who had not received much attention before the tournament, broke expectations and achieved the result of advancing to the semifinals for the second consecutive time following the 2019 Polish tournament. This is the first record in an Asian country.
Unfortunately, Korea, which lost 1-2 in the semi-final against Italy, is now aiming for third place with a final victory over Israel.
Bae Jun-ho was praised not only by the fans who visited the stadium for his best performance in the semi-finals, but also by his opponent, the Italian coach. Italian coach Carmine Nunziata drew attention at a press conference after the game, saying, “Jun-Ho Bae is a very good player.”

He said, “I had an injury in the beginning, but my physical condition has improved and my stamina has improved, so I am playing the game I want on the pitch.”
Due to his performance against Italy, he has been in the spotlight a lot. He is foreshadowing the birth of a new star with his good looks and outstanding soccer skills. If Cho Kyu-seong (Jeonbuk) became famous through the 2022 Qatar World Cup, it is said that the best excavation of Kim Eun-joong in this tournament is Bae Jun-ho.
When asked if he felt his popularity, he said, “I don’t really feel that much, but I feel it little by little because fans and acquaintances have contacted me a lot.”
Bae Jun-ho, who showed off a fantastic dribble breakthrough that drew cheers from the crowd in the semi-finals, looked back on that time and said, “A lot of Korean fans came and applauded every single play. I am so grateful and my confidence increased a lot during the game.”
Even when asked that the opponent’s concentration check is expected, he put on a relaxed expression. Bae Jun-ho said firmly, “If I have opponents flocking to me, other players will be able to play more comfortably.” “That is also a problem I have to overcome.”
The last opponent of the U20 national team is Israel. Israel, the runner-up in last year’s U20 European Championships, boasted formidable strength, beating Japan in the group stage, Uzbekistan in the round of 16, and Brazil in the quarterfinals. Israel lost 0-1 to Uruguay in the semi-final.
He said, “(Israel) is a very good team similar to ours,” he said. He added, “Personally, I will add strength to scoring by breaking through the side from the side.”
Bae Joon-ho promised to reap the beauty of the end through the final victory remaining.
He said, “There is a big difference between 3rd and 4th place. I’ve come this far, but I talked to my friends that it would be a pity if I placed 4th,” he said. “We will unite as one and prepare well.”
Furthermore, Bae Jun-ho emphasized, “I think we must win no matter how the opponent has come up. I am confident enough.”
The short but intense ‘coach’ Kim Doo-hyeon’s first coaching experience was successful enough.
Jeonbuk announced on the 9th that they had appointed Dan Petrescu (55), a Romanian soccer legend, as Jeonbuk’s 7th manager.
Jeonbuk announced, “We are appointing Romania coach Petrescu, who has rich championship experience and a high level of understanding of Asian football, as the new manager.”
Based on his brilliant player career and experience as a leader in Asia, coach Petrescu will start rebuilding as the second foreign coach in Jeonbuk’s history.
As a result, the role of acting manager Kim Doo-hyun will end with the Gangwon FC away game on June 11th.
Acting Kim temporarily took over the baton that former manager Kim Sang-sik had voluntarily resigned on the 4th. Kim Doo-hyun, who had all his previous coaching experience, rose to the position of acting manager and quickly began training the team.
He quickly shared his philosophy on position selection with the squad and clearly defined the role of each position, further enhancing the squad’s understanding of tactics.
He also raised Baek Seung-ho from 3rd to 2.5th to 2nd and gave him an offensive role, and the results were amazing.
Starting with Acting Kim’s first game, a 1-1 draw at FC Seoul, Jeonbuk won their first win in the agency system with a 3-0 win at Suwon Samsung.
After the match against Seoul, Jeonbuk led an amazing turnaround with 5 wins, 2 draws and 1 loss in 8 matches, including the FA Cup Paju City Football Team. Excluding the FA Cup victory, 4 wins, 2 draws, 1 loss, and 14 points in 7 games were swept, and it succeeded in leaping from the bottom to the middle ranks.
The ranking close to the relegation zone is 7th (7 wins, 3 draws, 7 losses, 24 points), the same number of points as Gwangju, 6th place based on the last 17 rounds. Final A entry is right around the corner.
Above all, Acting Kim rode the flow perfectly as Hyundai won 2-0 in the Derby in the 16th round of the league against Ulsan Hyundai. Kim’s stock price soared even more as he brought the frustrating flow to Jeonbuk with a second half substitution and defeated his rival.
Acting Kim resembles Xabi Alonso, an up-and-coming coach in Europe, in many ways. The two built a reputation on the professional stage and national team as midfielders during their playing days.
Acting Kim went through Suwon Samsung, Seongnam Ilhwa, and after renting to West Bromwich Albion (England), he completely transferred and experienced the Premier League stage.
While at the above clubs, Alonso received guidance from masters such as Jose Mourinho and Carlo Ancelotti, and Acting Kim also worked with top domestic coaches such as Kim Ho, Kim Hak-beom, and Cha Bum-geun as a player.
Just as Alonso joined Bayer Leverkusen midway through the 2022/23 season and led the team from the relegation zone to the upper-middle ranks and to the semi-finals of the UEFA (European Football Federation) Europa League, it is natural that Kim’s next move will also raise expectations. Due to the performance shown in Jeonbuk, it has already emerged as a priority for the next K-League club manager.
Acting Kim is currently completing P-level leadership training. It is highly likely that the stock price will rise with a new manager for sale this summer or this winter ahead of the next season.
