“There is a burden of gold medal, but if you can’t stand it, you won’t be on the list.”
The under-24 (U-24) national team led by coach Hwang Seon-hong will conduct convocation training at Paju NFC from the 15th to the 17th. It is preparation for the Hangzhou Asian Games to be held in September. Originally, the Hangzhou Asian Games were scheduled to be held last year, but were postponed due to the aftermath of Corona 19. At the same time, the age limit was raised from 23 to 24.
Lee Jae-ik held a press conference. Lee Jae-ik is a member of the Under-20 (U-20) World Cup with good results and currently belongs to Seoul E-Land. Contrary to his boyish appearance, he boasted strong defensive skills and had a large fan base. He is full of potential to the point of advancing to Europe. He has a lot of experience, but he is still young. He seemed to want a higher place by entering the final roster for this tournament.
At the press conference, Lee Jae-ik said, “I will try to do well what I want to do during the short call-up period.” He continued, “During the call-up period, there was a mentally requested part of the defensive tactics. It motivates each individual as well. It is difficult to talk about 300 or 400 people, and everyone who is called up will do well.”
- The call period is short.
Know. So, this call is more important. It’s a good time to show your skills to the manager.
- It is the last age-specific tournament for U-20 World Cup members who performed well in Poland.
I think the national team by age group is meaningful. There is a sense of closeness between the U-20 World Cup players, but I will prepare by working with new players.
- Juniors are going to the U-20 World Cup.
Hwang In-taek, who plays together at E-Land in Seoul, went. When (Lee) Kangin played the U-20 World Cup, he said he would definitely win, and he went to the tournament with that mindset. I want to show that Korea is a strong team.
- What motivates you for the Asian Games?
Personally, I am highly motivated. I think I will be able to show myself again on the global and Asian stages. 안전놀이터
- There is a strong perception that the Asian Games are a failure unless they win a gold medal.
It’s a burden to have to win a gold medal. But if you can’t overcome the pressure, you won’t be on the final list.
- In a few months, overseas groups will join.
I think there will be good synergy, but I will do my best to bring out the organizational power as much as possible from the selected people.
