Cho Hyun-woo (32, Ulsan Hyundai) recalled a pleasant meeting with coach Andreas Köpke (61, Germany).
The Korean national soccer team, led by coach Jurgen Klinsmann (Germany), lost 1-2 in a friendly against Uruguay at the Seoul World Cup Stadium on the 28th. Manager Klinsman finished his first two consecutive matches with one draw and one loss.
After the game, Cho Hyun-woo said, “I am upset because I lost after conceding. But (from now on) I will do my best to prepare well so that I can block all incoming balls.”
Jo Hyun-woo, who kept the goal after wearing the Taegeuk mark for the first time in 8 months since July of last year, said, “I wanted to play without a circle today. (After Kim Seung-gyu) I didn’t think it was the second. As usual, he prepared well. I think whoever came out would have had a good game. I will make it a good experience and do better next time.”
Jo Hyun-woo recorded 3 saves throughout 90 minutes. In the first half, he deflected a volley from Federico Valverde (Real Madrid), and in the second half, he blocked a free kick from Joaquin Piqueres (Paumeiras) before conceding a second goal.
He said, “I don’t care which ball. I think that kind of save is necessary for our team to win. It’s unfortunate that we gave up two goals, but I’ll do my best in Ulsan.”
Cho Hyun-woo, who was the main goalkeeper at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, showed a spirited save show in the third group match against Germany. As a result, Korea caused a great change by beating Germany 2-0. This match is regarded as Cho Hyun-woo’s ‘game of life’.
Coincidentally, the new Koepke coach is from Germany. Cho Hyun-woo smiled and said, “You played,” and raised his hand up here (chin). He laughed at the prank and moved on,” the report said. Coach Köpke created a pleasant situation by pretending to hit.
Koepke, who was a world-class goalkeeper during his active career, coached several world-class goalkeepers, including Manuel Neuer (Bayern Munich) and Marc-Andre ter Stegen (FC Barcelona).
Cho Hyun-woo said, “It makes us more comfortable than other training methods. Just standing there is strong and has an aura. I will learn well and become a goalkeeper who can do better than Neuer.”
Seol Young-woo, a junior on his team, was called up to the national team for the first time. Jo Hyun-woo said, “It was really nice. Youngwoo is not worried because he is a player who can make it to the A national team. I hope you will support Youngwoo a lot in the future.” 메이저사이트
