Cho Hyeon-woo (31, Ulsan Hyundai) has a big dream. It is to block the ball in Europe, the center of world soccer trend. There was an opportunity after the World Cup in Russia, but it was unfortunately canceled. However, he wanted to help young players realize the dreams he had in his heart in the near but distant future. 메이저놀이터
Cho Hyun-woo became a star goalkeeper at the ‘2018 FIFA World Cup Russia’. At the time, Germany, which ranked first in the FIFA rankings, was also defeated without being able to break through Jo Hyun-woo’s animalistic save show. He had a chance to advance to Europe after the World Cup and was offered a direct sign by the German team, but unfortunately he did not advance.
He joined Ulsan Hyundai, a team competing to win the K-League, and maintained his best skills. The national team is also constantly selected and is gaining valuable experience in the best team. In mid-January, when the cold winter wind blew, Europe was still wriggling in the heart of Jo Hyun-woo, who met at the ‘2023 K-League Winter Field Training Media Camp’ and Ulsan Battery Training.
He is not talking about leaving Ulsan and challenging the European stage. If he retires in the distant future, he wanted to make the dream of the European stage a reality for young players by drawing a ‘big picture’. Cho Hyeon-woo said, “I felt a lot while playing for a long time, and I was worried about why Korean goalkeepers couldn’t advance to Europe,” he said about his future plans.
Although I couldn’t participate in the Qatar World Cup, I tried to engrave both the world-class system and atmosphere because I am interested in nurturing goalkeepers. In 2018, I felt and captured what I couldn’t see because I was concentrating on the game in Qatar. “I decided to do my best every day, whether or not I participated in the game. I had a good time without regret,” said Hyunwoo Jo.
Of course, every player wants to play in the World Cup. Since Bento coach pointed out Seung-gyu Kim as the first priority, he secretly hoped to wear gloves in the third match of the group stage. Cho Hyun-woo smiled, saying, “If we win 2 first, we might be able to play against Portugal at least once, but we were fierce until the end. Personally, I’m really sorry, but I have no regrets.”
You have big dreams and plans for the far future, but you have to focus on 2023. Jo Hyun-woo experienced both runner-up and championship after wearing the Ulsan uniform in 2020. Since I reached the top of the K-League, which I so longed for, I will challenge for a second consecutive victory this year.
