‘World Cup Fantastic Goal’ Baek Seung-ho, “I gained confidence and grew more”


Seung-ho, who left a deep impression with a fantastic mid-range shot in the round of 16 match against Brazil at the 2022 Qatar World Cup, announced that he had grown one step further by playing a lot in 2022.

For Jeonbuk Hyundai midfielder Baek Seung-ho, 2022 was special.

In February 2021, Baek Seung-ho, who left the European stage and joined Jeonbuk, jumped to the starting lineup from the K-League debut season and led Jeonbuk to 5 consecutive league victories, appearing in a total of 33 games, scoring 4 goals and 1 assist. He mainly played as a defensive midfielder, but also played the role of a chance maker based on his sophisticated kicking power, and also showed sharp kicking power in free kick situations. There was no game sense or physical problem that he was concerned about, and it naturally led to his return to the national team.

The 2022 season has grown one step further. He established himself as a key midfielder in Jeonbuk and scored 2 goals and 5 assists in 30 appearances in the 2022 season, and has now become an indispensable player in Jeonbuk. In addition, he gradually expanded his position in the national team and entered the World Cup stage of his dreams, and was put into the second half of the round of 16 against Brazil and fired a fantastic mid-range shot. Baek Seung-ho’s goal is considered one of the best in the World Cup in Qatar.

At the 2023 K-League Winter Field Training Media Camp held at the Jeonbuk Hyundai Clubhouse in Bongdong-eup, Wanju-gun, Jeollabuk-do on the 12th, Baek Seung-ho said, “It was an honor just to go to the World Cup. I got it. I did my best while training every day, and I was preparing well. The opportunity came and I was grateful that I scored a goal. It was a meaningful World Cup and I gained a lot of confidence. I have to prepare better this season.”

Next, Baek Seung-ho expressed his confidence, saying, “I have accumulated a lot of experience by playing more games than when I was in Europe. I have improved a lot in terms of game sense and physical strength. Since the coach is in the same position as me, I have learned a lot and have grown.”

– Impressions of the new season

Last year, unfortunately, we didn’t win the league, but this year, many good players came, so we want to show good performances in the K-League and the Asian Champions League. Personally, I want to show a better image, such as assisting.

-European re-challenge

Any player dreams of playing on the European stage. He scored a goal in the World Cup, but is currently focusing on Jeonbuk. If an offer comes, I will discuss it well with the club.

-What does the score against Brazil mean?

It was an honor just to go to the World Cup. I couldn’t play in the 1st to 3rd games, but since I went to the World Cup, I set a goal to participate. I did my best while training every day, and I was preparing well. The opportunity came, and I was grateful that I scored a goal. It was a meaningful World Cup, and I gained a lot of confidence. We need to prepare better for this season.

-What advice would you give Cho Kyu-sung?

I have nothing to advise. I told you my personal thoughts. It is important for Kyu-Sung to decide. There is also the position of the club. If the director wants it and the current time is good, it would be right to go in winter, but it is better to go when you want.

– Growing as a soccer player

I have accumulated a lot of experience by playing more games than when I was in Europe. I improved a lot physically and mentally. Since the director is in the same position as me, I learned a lot and grew.

-Spanish field training

It feels like going home. Colleagues ask a lot. It would be nice to be able to see Gyeonggi-do. I was close with the Barcelona first team physical coach. He talked about having a meal in Spain. I keep in touch because there are people I lived with. 메이저놀이터

– Asian Games Wildcard

I think not only me, but all the players who have not solved the military problem are aiming for it. It is natural to want to play in the Asian Games, but it is important to prepare well for the season.

– Appointment of the next coach of the national team

You showed good performance in this World Cup and produced results. I think the results were produced because Bento prepared with the same philosophy. If the next coach prepares with the same philosophy, I think there will be good results.

– Expected players I

am looking forward to all the players who transferred this year. Lee Dong-jun also played for the national team, and Amano played with him in the league. All of them are good players, so if you prepare well, there will be good results. -I only read articles about

the determination to face off against Ulsan .

I haven’t talked to Amano about anything. There will be the director’s position, and there will be Amano’s position. Since Amano is our player, we have to help him adapt.
