‘Lee Eul-yong’s second son’ Lee Seung-jun, surprised by the first Taegeuk mark…”I still can’t believe it”

Midfielder Lee Seung-jun (19, FC Seoul), wearing the Taegeuk mark for the first time, couldn’t hide his excitement.

The U-20 national team led by coach Kim Eun-joong will be convened at the Paju NFC on the 24th and continue training until the 26th. Through this convocation, the national team will start quenching the 2023 FIFA U-20 World Cup to be held in Argentina in May.

Kim Eun-jung-ho challenges to advance to the round of 16 in three consecutive tournaments. Korea reached the round of 16 at the tournament held in their country in 2017, and in Poland in 2019, Lee Kang-in (Mallorca), Oh Se-hoon (Shimizu), and Jo Young-wook (Gimcheon) took the runner-up.먹튀검증

Korea was placed in Group F with France, Honduras and Gambia. The worst was avoided just by avoiding the ‘host country’ Argentina or the ‘South American powerhouse’ Uruguay in Port 1. The first opponent will be France on the 23rd of next month at Estadio Malvinas Argentinas located in Mendoza, Argentina.

Lee Eul-yong (48), the second son of the general manager of the Yongin City Football Center, Lee Seung-jun, was also selected for the national team for the first time. Playing alongside his older brother Lee Tae-seok (21) on his team, he was called up by coach Kim Eun-joong.

After entering the NFC, he said in an interview with reporters, “It is an honor to be selected for the first time in the national team. Through this call-up, I will show you how to work hard and do well, so my first goal is to enter the final entry.”

▲ The following is a Q&A with Lee Seung-jun. 

– Do you have any advice from your father Lee Eul-yong or your brother Lee Tae-seok (FC Seoul)?

Since it is the first time for both of them, he said that the priority is to play with confidence and not be intimidated.

– What do you want to show on the national team?

I want to show my spirited side and my strong point, reckless side, in the arena. My strength is that off the ball movement is good when there is no ball. He also has confidence in defense and one-on-one fights, and has the tenacity to keep going even if things go wrong.

– How do you feel about being called to the national team for the first time?

It’s good because it’s my first selection, but I’m also nervous. I still can’t feel it. When you enter the training ground, you will feel it to some extent.

– Were you expecting to be selected?

I hadn’t thought about it at all. I couldn’t believe it at first. It was only when I saw the list posted on the Korea Football Association (KFA) Instagram that I realized a little bit.

– Manager Kim Eun-joong said that it would be nice if the players who didn’t get a chance show more of themselves.

That’s right. I didn’t get a chance, so I was convened this time. I want to use this opportunity to advance to the World Cup.
