Coach Seong-Hwan Cho, I hope Incheon will win the Young Player Award [sports]

COACH CHO SEONG-HWAN: “I HOPE INCHEON WILL WIN THE YOUNG PLAYER AWARD, BECOME THE TOP SCORER AND BE SELECTED AS ONE OF THE BEST 11 PLAYERS”





“If the home crowd reaches 10,000 people, I will think about a surprise event after the season.”

“I will not be arrogant like a rabbit… I will take one step at a time toward my goal.”

“I hope the Young Player Award, Top Scorer, and Best 11 will all come out in Incheon.”

Cho Seong-hwan, coach of professional soccer K-League 1 Incheon United, met with reporters prior to the 2024 season inauguration ceremony held at the Incheon Global Campus auditorium on the 25th and said, “The Manager Award is water.

“I think I’ve passed over,” he said with a smile, expressing his hope for his students to win titles. 카지노사이트

Coach Cho Sung-hwan said, “It’s already my 10th year as a coach, and I think the players will work hard and do well this season as well,” and especially looked forward to the performance of U-22 players Choi Woo-jin (20) and Park Seung-ho (21).

Coach Cho was also worried that Choi Woo-jin seemed to have fallen into the second-year jinx.

He said, “At first, I didn't know much about it and took on the challenge with passion, but these days, I think I'm finding soccer difficult as well.

Although he was concerned that it could be a second-year jinx, he added, “The offensive options are quite good.

He expressed his affection, saying, “If I improve my positioning ability and gain experience, I think I have the skills to be a good resource not only for Incheon's future but also for the A team.”

He also said, “I hope that many of Incheon's players will join the Olympic team or the A team.

“Individual development is ultimately the development of Incheon,” he said.

“Their void can be filled with good-willed competition from other players.”

Coach Cho set a goal of averaging 10,000 spectators with the ambition to enter Final A for the third consecutive year and stand tall as one of the Big Four along with Ulsan HD, Jeonbuk Hyundai, and Pohang Steelers.

Coach Cho said, “A good team doesn’t have ups and downs.

“We will maintain continuity without major fluctuations in both performance and rankings,” he declared.

“If we achieve an average attendance of more than 10,000 or have a full home crowd, we will think about a surprise event after the season”

Coach Cho, who set the goal of entering the Final A, said, He cautioned against the attitude of the ‘rabbit', referring to the ‘Rabbit and the Turtle'.

Director Cho said, “Like the rabbit, I will not look down on (the turtle) and be conceited, and will take one step at a time towards my goal, whether in good times or bad times.

“I will not be swayed by the surrounding circumstances, but will look ahead and aim for a big goal,” he pledged.

Incheon won 4 times and accumulated 12 points in Group G of the 2023-2024 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Champions League (ACL) group stage, but lost on goal difference to coach Choi Kang-hee's Shandong Taishan (China) and Yokohama Marinos (Japan).

They were pushed back and failed to advance to the round of 16.

Regarding the rumor that Group G was the ‘Group of Death' as ​​Shandong and Yokohama both advanced to the ACL quarterfinals, Coach Cho said, “As a coach, I reflect on my shortcomings in game management and player management.

If I face the same situation next time, “I will not repeat my mistake,” he said, looking at himself rather than blaming his bad luck.

Manager Cho, who expressed his sense of responsibility as a manager, also mentioned manager Jurgen Klopp, who recently announced that he would step down as manager of Liverpool, a famous English professional football club in the Premier League (EPL).

Coach Cho said, “I am not in the same position as Manager Klopp, but I fully understand how he feels.”

Referring to the K-League opening media day scheduled for the 26th, he said, “Every time I go to Media Day, I worry, ‘Will I be able to stand here again next year?' “It intersects,” he said, expressing the enormous burden he felt as a director.

Meanwhile, on this day, 1,402 fans filled the 2024 season inauguration ceremony in Incheon, expressing their expectations for the new season.

Captain Lee Myung-joo pledged, “I prepared well by sweating a lot in Thailand and Changwon, Gyeongsangnam-do.

I will prepare well for the remaining week and work hard to win the opening game.”

Incheon will play the opening match of the 2024 season against Suwon FC at Incheon Stadium on the 2nd of next month.

However, as Lux revealed a throwing problem, coach Dave Roberts made a decision.

In an interview with local media such as MLB.com on the 9th, Manager Roberts said, “Using Betts as a shortstop is a way to reduce our team’s runs lost as much as possible,” and added, “Using Lux, who feels psychological burden, as a second baseman is the most appropriate decision for the team.”

“For the time being, it is okay to view Betts as a ‘built-in shortstop.’”

In his MLB career, Betts played 8,121⅓ innings as a right fielder and only 98 innings as a shortstop.

He played second base for 713 innings.

Mookie Betts accepted Coach Roberts’ decision, saying, “Playing as the Dodgers’ shortstop is a huge burden, but it’s also fun.

He had 10 wins, 21 losses, 16 holds, 5 saves, and an ERA of 5.30.

Hwang Sun-hong What if I Can’t Kill Two Birds with One Stone [sports]

HWANG SUN-HONG WHAT IF I CAN’T KILL TWO BIRDS WITH ONE STONE




Hwang Sun-hong What if I Can’t Kill Two Birds with One Stone? Jeong Hae-seong “I will take Full Responsibility”

“If you ask me what I will do when the results are bad, I will take full responsibility as the chairman.”

In the end, Hwang Sun-hong, coach of the U-23 national soccer team, announced that the U-23 soccer team will be held in March during the A-match period (18) ~26th He was given the important responsibility of leading the A team. 카지노

Coach Hwang will lead the A team in the 3rd and 4th games of the 2026 North and Central America World Cup Asia 2nd qualifying round against Thailand on March 21st and 26th.

It is not a strange choice to entrust the leadership of the A national team to Coach Hwang, a ‘leader of the Football Association’, as it is urgent to appoint an official head coach right away.

He said that Lee Kang-in (Paris Saint-Germain), Jung Woo-young (Stuttgart), Hong Hyun-seok (Gent), Seol Young-woo (Ulsan), and Park Jin-seop (Jeonbuk), whom he coached at the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games, are currently playing for the A national team, so he will immediately lead the team.

It seems that there will be no major problems.

There are quite a few cases in other countries where one leader leads both the U-23 national team and the A national team as an official coach.

Hajime Moriyasu, coach of the Japan A national team, and Graham Arnold, coach of the Australia A national team, have held concurrent positions as U-23 coach for several years.

Not to go far, in Korea too, Coach Huh Jung-moo coached the Sydney Olympic team and the A team (January 1999 to September 2000), and Coach Pim Verbeek coached the Doha Asian Games and Beijing Olympic teams (July 2006 to July 2006).

(August 2007) He held the concurrent position.

However, the reason why the ‘temporary coach Park Hang-seo rumor’ was more prevalent than that of Coach Hwang before the official announcement was because the U-23 national team was facing a big task of advancing to the 2024 Paris Olympics finals.

The Golden Generation of Korean Swimming [sports]

The Golden Generation of Korean Swimming, Dividing the Golden Waters... “Next is the Paris Olympics”





At the World Aquatics Championships, 2 golds, 1 silver, and 2 bronze medals, the most since Park Tae-hwan in 2007, won a ticket to the Olympics, including diving.

The ‘renaissance’ of Korean swimming has begun. The 'golden generation' born in the 2000s, led by Hwang Sun-woo (20) and Kim Woo-min (22), achieved the best ever performance at the 2024 International Aquatics Federation World Championships, brightening the future of Korean swimming.

Korea ranked 8th with two gold medals, one silver medal, and two bronze medals at the World Championships, which ended in Doha, Qatar, on the 19th (Korean time).

This is the first time that Korea ranked in the top 10 at the long course world championships, which are regular Olympic standards. 카지노사이트

The previous highest ranking was 13th place (1 gold, 1 bronze) at the 2007 Melbourne Games, where Park Tae-hwan won gold in the men's 400m freestyle and bronze in the 200m freestyle.

In this competition, Korea swept five medals, the most ever, led by its golden generation.

Kim Woo-min won the men's 400m freestyle, giving Korea its first World Championship gold medal in 13 years, and Hwang Sun-woo performed a golden performance in the men's 200m freestyle.

The silver medal in the men's 800m relay was also a great achievement of this competition.

Kim Woo-min, Hwang Sun-woo, Lee Ho-jun (23), Yang Jae-hoon (25), and Yu-yeon Lee (23) won the silver medal with a time of 7 minutes 01.94 seconds, just 0.1 seconds behind China.

This is the first World Championships team event medal in Korean swimming history.

Valuable achievements were also achieved in areas other than management.

Kim Su-ji (25), who became the first Korean diving world championship medalist in Gwangju in 2019, added bronze medals in the women's 3m springboard and mixed synchro 3m springboard.

There were many athletes who did not win medals but earned precious qualifications to participate in the Paris Olympics.

Lee Jae-kyung (24) and Woo Ha-ram (25) in the men's 3m springboard, Shin Jeong-hwi (22) in the men's 10m platform, and Kim Na-hyeon (20) in the women's 10m platform won the right to participate in the individual event at the Paris Olympics through this competition.

Artistic swimming duet Lee Ri-young (23) and Heo Yun-seo (18) also won tickets to the Paris Olympics.

Many say that the golden age of Korean swimming has just begun.

This is because most of the players are in their early 20s and have the potential to grow rapidly as they gain experience in the future.

Sunwoo Hwang set a new world junior record with 1 minute 44.62 seconds in the men's 200m freestyle preliminaries at the 2021 Tokyo Olympics, where he competed at the age of 18, and advanced to the semifinals as first place overall.

In the finals, he failed to control his pace and finished in 7th place with a time of 1 minute 45.26 seconds, but he quickly improved thereafter and now stands at the top of the world.

Kim Woo-min, who was not eligible to participate in the individual event at the Tokyo Olympics, won the gold medal in the 400m freestyle after 2 years and 6 months.

The golden generation is setting its sights on the Paris Olympics to be held in July.

Since Australia, a freestyle powerhouse, did not participate in this competition, and England and the United States have second-level athletes, it is expected that a 'real match' will unfold at the Olympics.

Advice From 39-Year-Old Shooter Heo Il-young [sports]

Advice From 39-Year-Old Shooter Heo Il-young... “If you’re going to Shoot Without Confidence, Sit on the Bench”





A 28-point explosion, including 3 points and 5 hits against Samsung... Look at Taejong Moon’s record of playing until he was 43 years old.

Heo Il-young is ranked third in age in professional basketball.

Ham Ji-hoon of Ulsan Hyundai Mobis was born in 1984 and is the oldest player this season. 카지노

Next are Woo-seop Yang and Il-young Heo of Seoul SK.

Both were born in 1985, but Yang Woo-seop has an earlier birthday.

Heo Il-young has already become a veteran among veterans, but his ‘fingertips’ are still alive.

Heo Il-young, who left the team due to injury in early December last year, returned to the court this month.

He scored 17 points in the home game against Anyang CheongKwanJang on the 10th, and scored 28 points in the away game against Seoul Samsung on the 11th.

Janggi 3-pointer also hit 5 shots.

Heo Il-young, who is in his 15th season in professional basketball, expressed the idea that a professional player must step onto the court with confidence.

Heo Il-young, who met with reporters at Jamsil Indoor Gymnasium in Seoul immediately after beating Samsung 80-70, said, "I don't go in when I don't have confidence.

Whether I go in or not, I have to throw first. If a player can't throw, it's right to sit on the bench instead of running." He emphasized.

Heo Il-young said, “Now that I have more years of experience, I can see what other players are like.

Everyone can tell when they go in well and when they don’t,” and added, “There are players who are confident even though they didn’t go in, and there are players who are hesitant even though they made a shot before.

“I wish that wasn’t the case,” he said.

He added, "If you don't go in, you can go out (to the bench) and come back in and throw."

Heo Il-young chose his teammate Oh Jae-hyun as a player who shoots with confidence in practice.

Jaehyun Oh has been criticized for his weak shooting since he entered the professional ranks.

Unlike other players, he had a unique shooting posture in which he twisted his body to shoot, so he received many doubts as to whether he could correct it.

However, the player who participated in the All-Star Game 3-point contest as the ‘SK representative shooter’ this season was Oh Jae-hyun.

Oh Jae-hyeon won a ticket to the finals, which was given to only 4 out of 13 contestants in the 3-point contest preliminary round, and proudly got rid of the label of 'weak shooting.'

Heo Il-young praised Jae-hyeon, saying, "It seems like Jae-hyun has overcome (lack of confidence) well.

I can see that he has gained confidence when shooting in contests as well."

Regarding Oh Jae-hyeon's unique shooting posture, he said, "I don't care about posture.

Even in American professional basketball, there are many players who have poor shooting posture but are good at shooting," and repeatedly emphasized, "Confidence is important."

Heo Il-young, who only wanted to play until he was 40, is said to have revised his original goal.

He looks over the records of Taejong Moon.

Shooter Taejong Moon, born to an American father and a Korean mother, began playing in Korean professional basketball in the 2010-2011 season and played for 9 seasons until the 2018-2019 season.

He played until the age of 43.

Heo Il-young said, "As long as I take good care of my body, there will be no problem.

Even then, if I am competitive, I still have the desire to play." Heo Il-young said, "Now, I am no longer excluded from the team because I am older, as I used to be.

Coach (Jeon Hee-cheol) also said that he will not judge based on age." He said.

He smiled and said, "Honestly, it's hard. 스포츠 토토사이트

The day after the game, my whole body feels sore, starting from my waist.

If I don't get greedy and play without getting injured, there will be a team looking for me and I want to do that for one more year."

Oh Hyun-gyu, The Reason Saudi Arabia Conceded so few Goals [sports]

Asian Cup Oh Hyun-gyu "The Reason Saudi Arabia Conceded so few Goals? Because they haven't Played Against Korea yet"




“They say Saudi Arabia doesn’t concede many goals, but that’s because they haven’t met us yet.”

Korean national soccer team's striker Oh Hyun-gyu (Celtic) showed confidence heading into the round of 16 of the 2023 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Asian Cup against Saudi Arabia.

The national soccer team, led by coach Jurgen Klinsmann, trained at the Al Egla Training Center in Doha, Qatar, on the 28th.

Oh Hyun-gyu met with reporters prior to training and said, "All members of the national team are preparing for the Saudi match with one mind. 온라인카지노사이트

I will go into the game with the determination that it will be the finals," and added, "I have completed all preparations.

I will show it with my performance, not words."

There is a lot of criticism towards the national team, which has repeatedly performed poorly in the group stage.

However, Oh Hyun-gyu said that there was no problem with the atmosphere within the team.

He said, “(Son) Heung-min (Tottenham) is always positive.

“I especially try to cheer up the attackers and midfielders by saying nice things or joking with them,” he said.

“The youngest members also try to help create a good atmosphere.”

“If you look at it from the outside, there may be concerns about the team atmosphere, but we passed the group stage well and there are no major problems,” he said.

Saudi Arabia, led by Italian Coach Roberto Mancini, scored only one penalty kick in three group stage games.

He showed a solid defense, including giving up.

However, Oh Hyun-gyu was not very wary of Saudi Arabia's defensive ability.

Oh Hyun-gyu shouted, “We analyzed Saudi Arabia’s strength, and we can win if we just play the game we prepared.”

Korea's strikers are not playing their part in this tournament.

Cho Kyu-seong (Midtjylland), who started as a starter for three consecutive games, has blown away several easy scoring opportunities and is scoring only zero goals.

Oh Hyun-gyu, who appeared as a substitute in two games, also did not show much of an impression.

Oh Hyun-gyu said, “Even if I don’t score a goal, if the team wins, my scoreless score doesn’t really matter.”

He continued, "(Cho) Gyu-seong and I talked a lot with my brother.

There is definitely pressure on the strikers, but they need to score to be recognized," and added, "The coach also wants goals from the strikers.

Any situation can happen in front of the goal, so it's simple."

“I will play creatively and score goals,” he said.

The Asian Cup round of 16 match between Korea and Saudi Arabia will kick off at Al Rayyan's Education City Stadium at 1 a.m. on the 31st, Korean time.

Jamaican Players Advanced to Round 16 in Women's World Cup [sports]

Jamaican players who advanced to the round of 16 of the Women's World Cup declare boycott of national team




Jamaican players who advanced to the round of 16 of the 2023 FIFA Women's World Cup declared a 'boycott' of the national team, saying they did not receive proper compensation.

Some players who played in Jamaican uniforms in the Women's World Cup announced on the 21st (local time) through social networking service (SNS),

"All 23 players who participated in the World Cup decided not to play in the CONCACAF Women's Gold Cup qualifiers."

A statement was shared. 카지노

In this statement, the players condemned, "We have come to the conclusion that we have no choice but to take such a dramatic stance in order to end the unfair treatment by the Jamaica Football Association," and "We cannot fulfill the role we set out to play under the conditions created by the association."

The national team is about to play a home game against Panama on the 25th in the Gold Cup preliminary round, a regional competition.

The Jamaica Football Association announced the 23-player entry the day before, but did not select a single player who had experience in the Women's World Cup held last July.

The players criticized, "We had to endure poor communication and low-quality organization and management.

Receipt of prize money is increasingly being delayed," and "We were not properly rewarded for our historic performance at the World Cup."

Jamaican players advanced to the round of 16 for the first time in history at this year's Australia-New Zealand Women's World Cup.

They pushed 'strong' Brazil to third place in Group F, taking second place in the group after France.

Jamaica, which drew 0-0 with France in the first game of the group stage and defeated Panama 1-0 in the second game, boasted a 'salty defense' that drew 0-0 with Brazil in the third game.

Afterwards, they lost 0-1 to Colombia and withdrew from the round of 16, but in the 2019 tournament in France.

They reached the finals for the first time and made history by advancing to the round of 16 for the first time in four years.

In accordance with FIFA policy, all players on the team that made it to the round of 16 will receive $60,000 (approximately 80 million won) in prize money per person.

However, since FIFA distributes the amount to each association rather than to the players, there is a possibility that some associations experiencing financial difficulties may not properly distribute the money to the players.

The Jamaican women's national team had suffered a setback even before the World Cup, with players expressing resentment at poor treatment.

Last June, Jamaican players publicly criticized their country's association, saying they had not received allowances for national team games on time and that support was inadequate.

The mother of midfielder Havana Solon, who was worried that the association would not be able to raise funds to participate in the World Cup, even stepped forward to directly provide support through her fundraising site 'Go Fund Me'.
