As the main players of our national team in the World Cup round of 16 head to Europe one after another after a short vacation, key midfielder Hwang In-beom (26, Olympiacos) will board a plane to Greece on the 16th.
Hwang In-beom’s side announced that Hwang In-beom would take an extra day off from his team and depart at midnight on the 16th instead of the scheduled 15th.
His teammate, striker Hwang Eui-jo, is due to head to Olympiacos on a different flight the same day.
Unlike Hwang Hee-chan (Wolverhampton) and Kim Min-jae (Napoli), who are the ’96 line’ heading to the battery training ground, Hwang In-beom plans to return directly to his team’s training ground to prepare for the league game.
As early as possible, he is expected to play an away game in the 14th round of the Greek Super League against Ioannina on the 22nd.
If an additional break is given in the field according to the forced march of the World Cup, it is possible to return in time for the home game against Asteras Tripolis on the 29th.
Hwang In-beom moved to Olympiacos from FC Seoul last summer and quickly melted into the team. He played a total of 16 matches, 11 in the league and 5 in the European Europa League, from the start of the season to the World Cup in a troubled atmosphere where the manager was replaced twice.
In this World Cup, Hwang In-beom started in all four matches, including Uruguay and Ghana in the group stage against Portugal and Brazil in the round of 16, helping Korea advance to the round of 16 for the first time in 12 years. He proved that he could work on the world stage and increased his chances of entering the big leagues he always dreamed of. 스포츠토토
Although he was injured in the second game against Ghana, his head was bleeding, but he impressed football fans by displaying his ‘fighting spirit’ by wearing a bandage and running.
After finishing the tournament after being defeated by Brazil, Hwang In-beom posted on his personal Instagram, “From the moment I first wore the A national team clothes, I was able to finish the tournament with great pride in the fact that I was rewarded to some extent for the efforts I made to stand on this stage. Thank you,” he said.
