From ‘corporal’ to ‘early discharger’… Cho Young-wook “I am still a soldier, and the highest Taegeukgi was overwhelming”

From ‘corporal’ to ‘early discharger’… Cho Young-wook “I am still a soldier, and the highest Taegeukgi was overwhelming”

With the Asian Games gold medal, Jo Young-wook (Gimcheon Managing Director) will be ‘early discharged’.

The Asian Games men’s soccer team led by coach Hwang Seon-hong won 2-1 in the final against Japan in the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games men’s soccer team held at the Huanglong Sports Center in Hangzhou, China on the 7th. Achieved the feat of winning three consecutive competitions.

Cho Young-wook, who played the role of a front-line striker throughout the competition, was promoted to corporal on the 1st. A week after he was promoted, he was given the pleasure of being discharged early. In the final, Cho Young-wook showed concentration in the 11th minute of the second half and scored a comeback goal, setting the stage for victory.토토사이트

Cho Young-wook, whom I met after the game, was not entirely happy. Jo Young-wook said, “I didn’t report my discharge. He is still a soldier. “He did what he had to do,” he said calmly. When Jo Young-wook conceded the first goal two minutes into the first half, he quickly moved to the halfway line with the ball in the goal. He said, “I never thought, ‘I’m in big trouble.’ He thought he could do it if he kept his cool. He was unperturbed because he thought his colleagues felt the same way. “He thought about what he could do for the team,” he explained.

The national team sprayed water and cheered wildly after the victory was confirmed. And we sang the national anthem together while looking at the Taegeukgi at the highest point. Youngwook Cho said, “The players played music and danced. “I watched with satisfaction,” he said. “I am especially moved when I go to an international competition and hear the national anthem before the game. Our players were standing high and the Taegeukgi was at the highest point. “As a player, it was a good and heart-warming experience,” he emphasized.

Cho Young-wook will retire(?) from the age group national team after this tournament. He filled 85 games. Jo Young-wook said, “No matter how much I think about it, I think the finals are the most memorable. I feel good about finishing well. Now, Director Hwang also had a lot of faith in me. “It’s nice to return the favor,” he explained.

What kind of director was Director Hwang who worked with me? Cho Young-wook said, “What I heard a lot about before the game against Japan was not to doubt. He said that if he did what he did, he would win for sure. “So he became the driving force to get back up again even after conceding a goal.”

There were also mischievous questions directed at him. Coach Hwang has finished the Asian Games, but he will immediately begin preparations for the 2024 Paris Olympics. When Coach Hwang asked whether he would respond if Cho Young-wook was called back to the Paris Olympics, Cho Young-wook said, “That really won’t happen,” and avoided answering by saying, “I would be grateful if I had the opportunity to wear the Taegeukgi, but I don’t think I would.”
