Klins Man-ho’s fierce competition as the main striker. The one who is most advanced in the beginning is none other than the “youngest” Oh Hyeon-gyu (22, Celtic).
It has become an unforgettable March for Hyungyu Oh. He was a preliminary member of the Qatar World Cup last year, but after manager Jurgen Klinsmann (59) took over the new helm, he was proudly named in the ‘Klinsmann 1st Term’ and participated in two A-matches in March. He played about 30 minutes against Colombia in Ulsan on the 24th and about 20 minutes against Uruguay in Seoul on the 28th. Unlike the two seniors, Cho Gyu-seong (25, Jeonbuk Hyundai) and Hwang Eui-jo (31, FC Seoul), who played as starters, Oh Hyun-gyu was substituted in both games.
However, it was Oh Hyun-kyu who received the best score. After the 1-2 loss against Uruguay, head coach Klinsman pointedly praised Oh Hyun-kyu when asked to evaluate the three strikers. Convinced that he could become a very good player, coach Klinsman highly praised him, saying, “Oh Hyun-kyu is a player who is very direct and wants to score goals. He has a hunger for goals. We will see what he will show in the future.”
Manager Klinsmann played as a world-class striker during his playing days. He drove a storm of goals at the World Cup and European Championships and led his homeland Germany to victory. It can be said that the eyes to see and evaluate the striker are more certain than anyone else. Since such a director praised him, Oh Hyun-kyu’s talent and potential for growth are quite high.
In fact, Oh Hyun-gyu showed off his presence by creating several threatening scenes in his two short appearances. Against Colombia, he broke through his opponent’s thick defense and fired a shot. He showed a destructive breakthrough and a calm finish, but the Colombian defender swallowed the regret as he kicked the ball in front of the goal. In the game against Uruguay, he even shook the net. In the 39th minute of the second half, even with the opponent’s defense in front, he peeled it off with a fantastic turning motion and fired a shot so powerful that the goal net was torn. It was such a perfect shot that even the Uruguayan center back and the opponent’s main goalkeeper, who are active on the European stage, had no time to block it.
However, Oh Hyun-kyu’s score was canceled through VAR. He was slightly ahead of the opposing defender in the process of catching the ball.
However, it was a game in which Oh Hyun-gyu gained a lot. He gained the confidence of not only coach Klinsman’s praise but also ‘I can do it’ and ‘just do it’. Oh Hyun-gyu said, “Even though I didn’t score a goal, I think I have more confidence. I want to improve more than I did before.” He praised that there was no. I had to make a goal, so there are some regrets, but next time I will definitely score an official goal. I want to present a goal to coach Klinsman and the people.”
Another strength of Hyungyu Oh is his humility. He showed good play, and even after receiving praise from coach Klinsman, he was cold-hearted unlike a young player. Rather, he pledged to grow even more. Hyungyu Oh said, “I think coach Klinsman’s compliment was too much. I want to receive and learn.” 토토사이트
In addition, Oh Hyeon-gyu emphasized that despite his busy schedule between Europe and Korea, “I was in good physical condition to the extent that I thought I was adjusting to jet lag. It was good to be able to play soccer in front of Korean fans.”
Finally, Oh Hyun-kyu said about the competition for the starting lineup, “I think there are definitely things to learn from each other because other strikers have gathered. I think I can improve further if I learn what I lack from my brothers and compete in good faith in the future.”
