A street cheer will be held to support Kim Eun-joong-ho, who is writing miracles at the FIFA U-20 World Cup.
On the 7th, the Korea Football Association announced, “Seoul and the Red Devils will hold a group street cheer at Gwanghwamun Square to support our national team against Italy in the U-20 World Cup semi-final.”토토사이트
The U-20 team, led by head coach Kim Eun-joong, will face Italy at 6 a.m. on Friday (9 September) at La Plata Stadium in Argentina for a ticket to the U-20 World Cup final.
South Korea finished as runners-up four years ago, led by a special ace in Lee Kang-in, who won the U-20 World Cup Golden Ball. Kim Eun-Joong-ho was determined to replicate his older brothers’ mythology, but his lack of standout talent kept him out of the limelight. Few expected him to make it past the group stage and into the quarter-finals.
But Kim breezed through the group stage with a 2-1 win over European giants France, before beating Ecuador 3-2 in the round of 16 and Nigeria 1-0 in the quarter-finals to become the first Asian team to reach the semi-finals of two consecutive tournaments.
“I had no expectations, and I had a lot of concerns,” Kim said after the Nigeria game. I didn’t know much about the players, so it was heartbreaking that the players who hadn’t been in the spotlight couldn’t fulfil their potential.” “They were really sincere, and they followed me well. I think they’re fulfilling their potential now,” he says, tearing up.
Now, football fans have a chance to cheer on Kim as he tries to write a miracle on the other side of the world. Despite the early hours of the morning on a weekday, they can play alongside the young Taekwondo warrior, who is defying all odds to reach the final.
Gwanghwamun Square is expected to be awash in red for the first time in seven months after the Korea-Brazil World Cup Round of 16 match in Qatar last December.
