Kim Eun-joong, who is in the group stage of the 2023 International Football Federation (FIFA) Argentina U-20 (under 20 years old) World Cup, received a good grouping.
The Korean U-20 soccer team led by coach Kim was included in Group F along with France, Gambia and Honduras in the 2023 U-20 World Cup group draw held in Zurich, Switzerland on the night of the 21st (Korean time). The U-20 World Cup will be held in Argentina from May 20 to June 11. It was originally scheduled to be held in Indonesia, but FIFA revoked Indonesia’s right to host this year’s U-20 World Cup last month as anti-Israel sentiment intensified in the Muslim country.
Korea was assigned to pot 2 in the pot organization based on the results of the previous five tournaments. Korea had a 67% chance of being in a group with Argentina or Uruguay in Pot 1, but avoided all of them and ended up in a group with France. It is fortunate that we avoided the ferocious cheering of Uruguay fans, close to host country Argentina.
Korea is behind France with 1 win,메이저놀이터 3 draws and 4 losses, but Honduras and Gambia posted 2 wins and 1 win respectively without a draw or loss in their opponents.
Kim Eun-joong will train at the Paju National Training Center (NFC) from the 24th to the 26th. Then, about two weeks before the tournament at the beginning of next month, they will be convened again and begin final preparations. Coach Kim said, “All the teams that have advanced to the World Cup are not easy opponents, so I think we need to prepare well from now on. The first goal is to advance to the tournament (Round of 16). It’s going to be an atmospheric battle,” he said.
