It’s a murderous schedule.
National soccer team fullback Seol Young-woo (Ulsan Hyundai) is playing a non-stop schedule. He was named to the national team led by coach Jurgen Klinsmann and played full-time in two consecutive international matches (Wales and Saudi Arabia) in September. He will now join the Asian Games team led by coach Hwang Seon-hong.
It’s a killer schedule. Seol Young-woo headed to Cardiff, England on the 4th after playing K League 1 against Gwangju FC on the 3rd. He played full-time as a starter in the A match against Wales on the 8th and Saudi Arabia on the 13th, and was immediately called up to the Asian Games national team on the 14th after returning to Korea. It’s a schedule that would be strange if you weren’t exhausted from a long-distance flight, full-time participation, and jet lag in just 10 days.
In contrast, Hong Hyun-seok (KAA Henter), who was named to the A team and Asian Games national team lists along with Seol Young-woo, returned to Korea on the 9th after the Wales game and joined the Asian Games national team’s training in Changwon in advance.
It was different from Coach Klinsmann’s explanation immediately after the A-match roster was announced. Coach Klinsmann said,온라인카지노 “After the Wales game, if there are no special circumstances such as injuries, physical condition, or performance of other players, we plan to cooperate so that the two players (Hong Hyun-seok and Seol Young-woo) can join the Asian Games national team as much as possible.” Even though there was no situation, we held on to Seol Young-woo until the end.
Seol Young-woo, who played against Wales and then against Saudi Arabia, looked a bit tired. He made a pass mistake or easily allowed a cross to the opposing attacker. He has maintained his position as the national team’s right fullback since making his A match debut in an evaluation match against El Salvador last June. He has been playing a difficult schedule this season, playing 29 games, including the league and FA Cup, not only for the national team but also for his own team.
Seol Young-woo joins the Asian Games national team as a wild card. He joins the national team without any chance of recovery and has to get back on his feet again. And two days later, on the 16th, he leaves for Hangzhou, China, the site of the decisive battle. In addition to the physical burden, the accumulation of fatigue was completely borne by the players themselves.
The Asian Games national team will play Group E against Kuwait on the 19th, Thailand on the 21st, and Bahrain on the 24th. Seol Young-woo’s accumulation of fatigue in a situation where he has to complete a tight schedule every two days is something that should raise concerns for Director Hwang.
