‘Selected for the first national team A’ Seol Young-woo “Heung-min hyung is a celebrity… The shouts are louder than I thought”

Seol Young-woo shared his impressions of watching the first game of the national team from the bench.

Korea lost 1-2 to Uruguay in the second leg of the March FIFA A-match friendly held at the Seoul World Cup Stadium at 8:00 pm on the 28th. With this, Korea finished their 2 consecutive friendly matches with 1 draw and 1 loss. 

Seol Young-woo joined the national team as a replacement for Kim Jin-soo ahead of the game against Uruguay. It is the Taegeuk mark of the first adult national team. Kim Jin-soo was called off due to a back injury in the first match against Colombia last year. Seol Young-woo watched the national team game for the first time from his bench that day.

Seol Young-woo, who we met in the Mixed Zone, said, “It was my first time as a national team player, and the shouts were louder than I thought. It was fun, but I couldn’t run, but I was nervous at the same time.”

When Ulsan Hyundai coach Hong Myung-bo asked what he would say, he laughed, saying, “Where did you go?

As he was selected for the first national team, he is expected to participate in the next match. Regarding this, he replied, “It was an honor just to participate in the game as a team.

Still, thanks to my teammates, I was quick to adapt to the national team. Seol Young-woo said, “(Kim) Tae-hwan, (Kim) Young-kwon, and (Cho) Hyun-woo are all people who have been with the national team for a long time. If I had been alone, it would have been difficult to adapt, but the hyungs took me around and taught me from one to ten. Kang-in I was originally close with the younger players, so there was no problem adapting,” he said of the help of his older brothers.

I also had a new experience with the national team. Seol Young-woo admired, saying, “You don’t have to bring soccer boots to the stadium. They took care of everything. I just had to take care of my mental strength.” 메이저놀이터

Regarding the first training session with Son Heung-min, he said, “He is like a celebrity to me. I watched him stretching as a fan. I don’t know if there will be another opportunity next time, but it was an honor.”

Coach Klinsmann also encouraged Seol Young-woo. He said, “After the game, he told me to prepare well without injury because another opportunity will come in the future.”

Seol Young-woo is right-footed, but plays as a left-back for his team. He is also a possible resource on the right wing. When asked which seat he was comfortable with, he replied, “I’m comfortable with both. I think I’m more comfortable on the left now because I play on the left side of the team.”
