Klinsmann won 3-1 against Bahrain in the first Group E match of the Asian Cup at Jasim bin Hamad Stadium in Doha, Qatar on the 15th (Korea time). Hwang In-beom (Zvezda) and Lee Kang-in (Paris Saint-Germain) scored and contributed to winning three points.
Seol Young-woo, who played both left and right as a side defender, also observed his performance.
Seol Young-woo played in the right side defense and played on the left side after replacing Lee Ki-je (Suwon) and Kim Tae-hwan (Jeonbuk).
“It would be a lie if I didn’t feel pressured because it was my first competition,” Seol said. “It was an honor to wear the national team uniform that I dreamed of since I was young, but I felt a lot of pressure. I felt a lot of pressure during the preparation process that I never felt before. I felt heavy today,” she said, adding, “I think we won because we all worked hard,” enjoying the victory.
Regarding the change in position, he replied, “I don’t know what kind of change the coach and the coaches tried to make, but they told me to change it when I was running,” adding, “There was no difficult situation because I could see both sides.” (Kim) Young-kwon came in in the second half, and it was comfortable because we were on the same team.”
Seol also expressed her team’s extraordinary commitment. After the match, players gathered together and had conversations with Son Heung-min (Tottenham Hotspur).
“The first game was going to be a tough one no matter what the opponent said, and it wasn’t as easy as expected. After the game ended, I had a tough game, but I was fortunate to have achieved the result I wanted,” Seol said.
Klinsmann, who got off to a good start by winning the day, will play his second group match against Jordan on the 20th.
