Baek Seung-ho says he’s looking forward to facing Lee Kang-in, but urges him not to push himself too hard.
Team K-League defeated Atletico 3-2 in the ‘Coupang Play Series’ at Seoul World Cup Stadium at 8 p.m. on July 27.
온라인카지노The team that faced Atletico was made up of players who currently represent the K League. The team consisted of the Fan Eleven, who were selected by fan votes, and the Pick Eleven, who were selected by the coaching staff. The Fan Eleven consisted of Lee Seung-woo (Suwon FC), Na Sang-ho (Seoul), Lee In-gyu (Ulsan), Sejing-ya (Daegu), Baek Seung-ho (Jeonbuk), Bae Jun-ho (Daejeon), Anton (Daejeon), Seol Young-woo (Ulsan), Jung Tae-wook (Jeonbuk), Kim Young-kwon (Ulsan), and Lee Chang-geun (Daejeon).
When the game started, Atletico played a solid first half with tight defensive spacing. The Team K League forwards were looking for space to move the ball around, but the Atletico defense maintained a consistent gap and refused to give them any. Eventually, Atletico took the lead in the 13th minute of the first half when Toma Lema scored on a counterattack.
However, Team K League came alive in the second half. In the 15th minute of the second half, Anton equalized with a header from a free kick by Sejingya. Atletico took the lead in the 40th minute when Carlos Martin slotted home a pass from Angel Correa.
It looked like Atletico would win the game, but Team K-League fought back. In the 42nd minute, Palošević converted a penalty kick after Gerso was brought down. Then, in stoppage time, Lee Soon-min scored a right-footed mid-range shot to give Team K League a 3-2 victory.
Team K-League had a player with Spanish connections on this day. Seung-ho Baek played for Barcelona’s youth team and La Liga team Girona. Baek Seung-ho was introduced to Spanish soccer as a child, learning at the Barcelona academy, before moving to Girona in 2017 and making his La Liga debut.
The match against Atletico was especially special for Baek Seung-ho, who played the first 45 minutes and helped distribute the ball in the center of the field. When asked after the game if he could hear Spanish during the match, Baek Seung-ho said, “I’ve been speaking Spanish since I was a kid, so I could hear it well. I didn’t speak to the Atletico players for long, but I did speak to Alvaro Morata for a while when he protested. He protested that it was a corner kick, so I told him it was our ball,” he said, conveying the special feeling of playing against a Spanish team.
Meanwhile, after Atletico, Baek Seung-ho will return to his club Jeonbuk Hyundai to face Paris Saint-Germain (PSG). Jeonbuk and PSG will play a friendly at the Busan Asiad Stadium on March 3. The match will also feature a showdown with Lee Kang-in.
On the possibility of facing Lee, Baek Seung-ho said, “I hope (Lee) plays, and if he’s injured, I hope he doesn’t overdo it. It’s a great opportunity for Korea to play against a foreign team. I’m looking forward to it.” Lee suffered a hamstring injury in the preseason matches against PSG and Le Havre on Sept. 22, and spent most of the Japan tour rehabilitating, missing the match against Al Nasr on Sept. 25. While Baek Seung-ho was looking forward to facing Lee Kang-in, he was also worried about him. He was genuinely worried for his younger brother.
