Daegu FC defender Hwang Jae-won is planning to get a big meal from Ko Jae-hyun, who delivered an assist.
Daegu defeated Daejeon Hana Citizen 1-0 in the 14th round of the Hana One Q K League 1 2023 held at Daejeon World Cup Stadium on the 20th. Daegu (20 points), who had won against Gwangju FC in the previous game, reduced the gap with 5th place Daejeon (21 points) to 1 point by running their first consecutive win this season.
The winning goal came in extra time in the first half. Hwang Jae-won, who participated in the attack, put a cross into the penalty box. The ball passed the Daejeon defense and passed to Ko Jae-hyun, who finished it calmly.
Ko Jae-hyun and Hwang Jae-won are young players that Daegu is proud of. The two players, born in 1999 and 2002, respectively, have already established themselves as the main pillars of the team. On the 15th, we also went to the U24 national team convocation training in preparation for the Hangzhou Asian Games. Daegu coach Choi Won-kwon expressed confidence in the two players before and after the match, calling them “Daegu’s treasure”.
Hwang Jae-won, who we met in the joint coverage area (Mixed Zone) after the game, said, “I was confident as a whole team because we won the first match against Daejeon. They seem to have led to victory. The performance was a little disappointing, but I persevered well like Daegu.”
The help on this day was Hwang Jae-won’s first attack point in the league this season. When asked about the first help, Hwang Jae-won asked if it was recorded as help, and said, “I wasn’t sure because the hyungs said it was refracted, and if it was refracted, it wasn’t recorded as help.” It was a pity that I didn’t come out. The first attack point was late, but I hope I can start from now and build up one by one.”
Then, he smiled, saying, “Especially, Jaehyun assisted Hyung’s goal, so I feel even more happy. Jaehyun hyung always buys beef for me, so he told me to give him some assists. Now it’s my turn to get one. I’ll have to look into beef omakase.”
Hwang Jae-won is working on a tight schedule this season. So far, he has played in all 14 league matches. All but one game were starts, and only one game was substituted out. In March and May, he also attended training for the national team by age group.
When asked about physical fitness, he explained, “I’m trying to be smarter by using my brain a little more. I’m also paying attention to eating and recovering. Eating well and taking an ice bath helps me recover from fatigue.”
There are no physical difficulties, but there are a lot of greed as well. Hwang Jae-won ranked second in the K-League 1 in terms of the number of sprints and distances that consume a lot of physical strength in the April K-League physical data rankings recently announced by the Korea Professional Football Federation. However, he regretted that he did not rank first, saying that he had to be active as a side defender. “Jaehyun hyung is ranked first in the number of sprints and distance. Jaehyun hyung is also in the top rank (3rd place) in the distance run. Actually, I thought I would be among the top in the distance run, but I didn’t have a name. I think I need to run harder.” I made up my mind. 스포츠토토
Motivation this season is certain. Participation in the Hangzhou Asian Games to be held in September. Hwang Jae-won, who was born in 2002, is not the main generation because it is a competition that can participate up to 1999, but looking at his recent league performance, he is in a situation where he can challenge enough. Hwang Jae-won said, “Since I’m a person, I’m a little greedy. I want to go. But when I played with the 99-year-olds at the national team call-up this time, there were definitely a lot of older brothers who did well. I think I need to practice more and more in the team. thing,” he said.
