Our national team overcame the odds and filled the field with passion.
At the moment of victory in overtime, the coaching staff hugged each other.
Coach Kim Eun-joong, who hadn’t shown any emotion throughout the tournament, was unable to hold back tears at this point.

Choking back tears, the players doused Coach Kim with joy as he continued his difficult interview.
The national team was not met with great expectations and attention from the first call-up.
In 2017, the striker trio of Lee Seung-woo, Baek Seung-ho and the youngest, Cho Young-wook, stood out.
Unlike 2019, when Lee Kang-in, who was dubbed the ‘youngest’ and won the MVP, shone, there was no star player.
Despite being called the ‘valley generation’, Kim Eun-joong, nicknamed ‘Sharp’ as a player, created miracles with his sharp counter-attacks.
[Kim Eun-jung, head coach of the U-20 national football team: “Our players, who were not in the limelight, have potential…It hurt me to not be recognised, so I think I brought out the potential in them that they didn’t know they had.”]
Kim Eun Joong Ho’s propaganda is once again showing that no player is greater than the team.
