‘Practical sense concern’ Hwang In-beom “Always difficult European ‘away’ experience, will become more solid” [Cardiff SS site]

“It’s always hard to play away from home in Europe, and we’ll be tougher.”

South Korea national team midfielder Hwang In-beom토토사이트(Zvezda) started and played the entirety of the national team’s A match against Wales at Cardiff City Stadium in Cardiff, Wales, United Kingdom, on Monday morning (Aug. 8) before being substituted off in the 16th minute of the second half.

Speaking to the media in the Mixed Zone after the game, he said: “Wales were a good team, they were solid defensively. We struggled to create chances. The fact that we didn’t concede a goal will be good for us going forward. We’ll have to work on our attacking work and try to score with more precision.”

Clearly, away trials are not easy. It’s been more than five years since the national team last played an away trial in March 2018. While the Europeans don’t mind, the K-Leaguers have to deal with jet lag. “Away games are always difficult,” said Hwang In-beom. I don’t remember playing an easy game,” Hwang said, adding, “Some players are experiencing their first European trip. I saw them struggle a lot. There were also players who were not at 100 percent overall. When we play at home, we have the crowd cheering and chanting for us, which gives us more energy. I think we will become stronger through this experience.”

Hwang In-bum was at odds with his former club Olympiakos (Greece) over a transfer, and on May 5, he made a surprise move to Zvezda (Serbia). Despite this, Hwang was chosen by coach Jürgen Klinsmann to play in the midfield. It’s inevitable that he has some difficulties with his game.

“There are always difficulties when you play after a long time, and I tried to play until my physical condition improved as much as possible. I wanted to play easily and effortlessly,” Hwang said, but he also said, “I think I didn’t do enough to prepare in advance, and I need to find my physical condition as much as possible.”
