Kwon Chang-hoon (29, Kim Cheon), ‘Bread-hun’, received basic military training immediately after the 2022 World Cup in Qatar in December of last year. After training in a situation where his stamina fell, he returned to Gimcheon Sangmu and digested his winter training.
The name of training is the same, but the personality is 180 degrees different. It’s no wonder that it’s hard to be in 100% condition. In the case of Lee Young-jae, who went to the training center together, he did not go to the World Cup, so the speed at which he builds his stamina was different.
It was the same in the away game against Chungbuk Cheongju FC in the second round of Hana One Q K League 2 2023 held at Cheongju Sports Complex on the 4th. Lee Young-jae started the game and broke the net with a powerful left-footed mid-range shot in the 30th minute of the first half. Of the 7,035 spectators in the home opener, the cheers of the fans other than the away fans in Gimcheon were silenced.
On the other hand, Kwon Chang-hoon was on the waiting list and appeared as a substitute in the 5th minute of the second half. He drained the strength of Cheongju’s defense with his characteristic left-footed dribble and indirectly contributed to Kim Ji-hyeon’s additional goal from a penalty kick just before the end.
Kwon Chang-hoon expressed regret, saying, “I need time to build my body, but I haven’t been able to exercise for a month. Still, he only did what was given to him for the sake of his national defense duty.
This is Kwon Chang-hoon, who signed a six-month short-term contract with his parent Suwon Samsung in the German Bundesliga SC Freiburg in May 2021. In Gimcheon, military service ends in June. From July he has to find a new team. 바카라
It is Kwon Chang-hoon who stands at the crossroads between finding a new team to play on the domestic stage and advancing overseas. During winter training last month, he told reporters, “I want to re-enter Europe and compete in the World Cup finals again.” He showed a cautious attitude, saying, “(In July) it will be completely blank. I wonder if the results will come out as much as I do. If you look at the timing (contracts in the K-League or re-entering Europe), everything is the same, but it’s something to watch.” It is also true that the European challenge was weighted.
Of course, there are stimulants. Son Heung-min (31, Tottenham Hotspur), as well as Lee Jae-seong (31, Mainz 05), are very active. Kwon Chang-hoon expressed his will, saying, “Lee Jae-seong is really good. I think I can say that I will challenge (Europe) again rather than necessarily comparing with Lee Jae-seong.”
In order to attract European attention, it is important to re-enter the A national team. On the 8th, Jurgen Klinsmann, the new coach of the A national team, will enter the country and hold a press conference on the 9th. On the 20th, if the national team is to be convened for the two consecutive matches against Colombia and Uruguay, it must hold a press conference to announce the roster on the 13th. Considering the fact that Klinsman has not yet properly identified the players, most of those who participated in the Qatar World Cup are expected to be selected.
Kwon Chang-hoon is also not aware of this process. He did not hide his will to show his performance by working hard to board the Klins Mann, saying, “Since I was selected a week before the call, I wonder if I will see players (who can be selected in the US) from now on. I think I will check which players to select.”
