Baek Seung-ho (Jeonbuk), captain of Hwang Seon-hong, who led Korea to the Asian Games gold medal in soccer, talked about the emotions he felt after winning the championship, saying, “I was constantly in tears.”먹튀검증
Baek Seung-ho cried and cried from the moment he won the Hangzhou Asian Games final against Japan at the Huanglong Sports Center Stadium in Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province, China on the 7th until the moment he stood on the podium. He cried, not at the level of ‘wailing’, but ‘popping’. He cried again in the arms of coach Hwang Sun-hong of the Asian Games national soccer team, who believed in him and selected him as a wild card and even gave him the captain’s armband. Colleagues around him comforted the ‘crying captain.’ There were also colleagues who did not know that Baek Seung-ho was a player who cried so much.
Usually, the captain’s role is to comfort crying players. However, it is different in Hwang Seon-Hong Ho. The captain is the most tender-hearted. The nickname he got from his frequent crying is ‘Crybaby Captain.’ When a colleague asked why he cried so much at the awards ceremony, Baek Seung-ho replied, ‘That’s how it is (I cry a lot).’ He admitted in a joint press area interview after the game that he “kept crying.”
Coach Hwang Seon-hong said of Baek Seung-ho, who was held tightly in his arms after the match against Japan ended 2-1, “Seung-ho must have been very emotional. He must have been desperate. I was desperate too. I believed in Seung-ho 100%. I cared about (media criticism). “I told him not to use it. If you think about it that way, wouldn’t I be a ‘killer guy’ too?” Baek Seung-ho said, “The coach trusted me and entrusted me as captain. Rather than worrying, I was excited and had fun, and I felt a sense of pressure and responsibility.
Baek Seung-ho played erratically in three consecutive games from the round of 16 tournament to the semifinals. This naturally led to criticism from the media. The burden of performance was added to the burden of being captain. Baek Seung-ho said, “Honestly, I did something wrong in the first and second scenes. But the third scene was unfair. I was upset and felt sorry for my teammates. I think it was intentional to shake things up.” Baek Seung-ho silenced the voices of criticism with his flawless performance that day.
Baek Seung-ho said before the competition that he hoped the Hangzhou Asian Games would be a turning point in his career. Baek Seung-ho, who received military service benefits for this win, said, “A lot of things happened. This competition was a good experience, and (as I said earlier) I hope it will be a turning point.” Baek Seung-ho went through many ups and downs during his time as a Barcelona youth player, including being disciplined by FIFA and failing to win an important tournament due to injury. As he was scheduled to enlist in the Armed Forces Athletic Corps at the end of the year, the military issue was quickly resolved.
The national team, which comfortably achieved its third consecutive victory in the competition, disbanded this afternoon after completing its long journey to the gold medal.
