In a tournament where Lee Kang-in, 22, was named the Most Valuable Player four years ago, another Taegeuk warrior stole the show.
Bae Jun-ho, 20, of Daejeon Hana Citizen, scored a goal and added an assist to lead South Korea to a 3-2 victory over Ecuador in the round of 16 at the FIFA U-20 World Cup in Santiago del Estero, Argentina, on Sunday (Sept. 2) to advance to the quarterfinals.
Starting on the left flank in a 4-2-3-1 formation, Bae scored two of the team’s three goals. But it wasn’t just his two goals that made him stand out. He led the South Korean attack with his individual skill and dribbling ability, as well as his creative passing, all while wearing the No. 10 shirt.메이저사이트
South Korea rattled Ecuador with their organized defense and counterattacks, and Bae was at the center of their tactics. In the 10th minute of the first half, Bae shined. During a counterattack, the ball was played to Bae. Bae Jun-ho used his upper body to beat one defender before sending a roving pass to Lee Young-joon in the penalty box. The ball left Bae Jun-ho’s feet and, like a ruler, found its way to Lee Young-joon, who rattled the Ecuadorian net with a chest-trapping right-footed volley.
