Soccer player Jo Hyun-woo revealed the behind-the-scenes story of the last World Cup in Qatar.
On the 13th, Cho Hyeon-woo appeared on the YouTube ‘Chun-su Lee’ channel. On this day, he had a meal with Lee Chun-soo, a former soccer player, and had conversations on various topics.
When Lee Chun-soo recalled the time when he was a member of Ulsan Hyundai and asked about the team’s current situation, Cho Hyun-woo said, “I’m still very good. Since the coach is such a good person, the players try to unite as one, and sometimes try to share (information) together.”
When Chun-Soo Lee said, “I don’t think it will be easy for one person to control multiple players,” Hyeon-Woo Cho explained, “But there is not a single player who hates the coach.” In response, Chun-Soo Lee jokingly said, “I might hate players who don’t play,” and Hyun-Woo Jo laughed, saying, “I think I should ask (to my colleagues) again.”
Regarding the World Cup in Qatar, Cho Hyun-woo said, “I went very well. The arena was also cool. I went with my family, but I didn’t even know it was summer,” he said, expressing his impressions of visiting the site.
Referring to the match against Ghana on November 28 of last year, Chun-Soo Lee said, “When we conceded two goals in the first half, there was an evaluation that the defensive line was too far behind. When asked if it was intended, Jo Hyun-woo replied, “That’s right. I was aiming for it,” he replied. 토토사이트
Cho Hyun-woo said, “I re-watched the matches during the four years of preparing for the World Cup. But the line was up,” he said. “About a week before the first World Cup match, the coach said while training in Qatar. Whether the line will be raised or lowered is something the players have adjusted with the coach for several days.”
“The reason we lowered the line was because we said, ‘The ball is coming down anyway, so let’s come down and enter the zone,’” he added.
When Lee Chun-soo asked, “I must have thought a lot about wanting to run, how did you feel at that time?” Cho Hyun-woo said, “Looking back now, I have no regrets. Every game I thought I would play and prepared. That’s why I have no regrets. Anyway, the choice is up to the director,” he confessed.
The Korean national team finished second in Group H at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, and succeeded in advancing to the round of 16 in the second round of the 2nd away World Cup in 12 years. However, in the round of 16 match against Brazil, they lost 1:4.
