“That day 11 years ago was good, but…” Koo Ja-cheol sticks his tongue out at Lee Bum-young’s mad save
Suwon FC goalkeeper Lee Bum-young showed a spirited save, and Jeju United’s Koo Ja-cheol stuck out his tongue.
Jeju drew 0-0 without scoring in the home game against Suwon FC in the first round of Hana 1 Q K League 1 2023 held at Jeju World Cup Stadium at 2:00 pm on the 26th. Jeju showed a dominant appearance throughout the game, but the last shot was disappointing. In particular, he shook his head at opposing goalkeeper Lee Bum-young’s successive super saves.
In the match, Lee Beom-young recorded a total of 6 saves and secured Suwon FC’s goal. He showed his best performance by blocking all shots from Jeju foreign strikers Yuri, Kim Ju-gong, Koo Ja-cheol and Ahn Hyun-beom. Suwon FC coach Kim Do-gyun praised his performance, saying, “Thanks to Beom-young, we got a point.”
Kooja Railway, whom we met in the Mixed Zone, also talked about Lee Beom-young’s great success. He said, “Beom-young’s condition has completely improved. If I had to choose MVP today, I would have no choice but to pick Beom-young. He made so many saves.” He continued, “When I blocked the shootout 11 years ago, I was very reassured and happy with the same team, but today I was happy to see the opposing team blocking my ball and blocking all of our team’s shots, but I was also very sad.”
The match 11 years ago that Koo Ja-cheol mentioned was the quarterfinal match against Great Britain at the 2012 London Olympics. At that time, the game went into a penalty shootout after a draw until overtime, and Lee Beom-young’s save saved Korea to the semifinals. It was one of the decisive moments in winning the Olympic bronze medal by beating Japan in the 3rd-4th place match.
During the game, Lee Bum-young blocked it so well that Koo Ja-cheol also said that he had a separate conversation. He smiled and said, “Beomyoung blocked me so well, so I told him, ‘You have too much concentration.’ But I couldn’t help it.” It was the same back story as Eric Dyer said when the opposing goalkeeper blocked Son Heung-min’s shot too well in the match against Norwich City in the last round of the Premier League last season, when Son Heung-min was aiming for the top scorer. 메이저사이트
Just in time, Lee Beom-young appeared in the Suwon FC locker room. Koo Ja-cheol called Lee Beom-yeong to him and said, “You blocked it so well that we drew 0-0.” Lee Bum-young responded with a smile, saying, “Hyung, isn’t it time for me to do well too? I’ve been resting too much.”
The two veteran players, who have gone through all sorts of battles, parted ways after a light embrace, promising to play an active role this season. Before that, I did not forget to take a commemorative photo of just the two of us.
