[인터풋볼] Reporter Oh Jong-heon = Hwang In-beom energized the midfield with a great deal of activity.
The national football team of the Republic of Korea, led by coach Paulo Bento, defeated Cameroon 1-0 in the September match held at the Seoul World Cup Stadium at 8 pm on the 27th. With this, Korea finished 2 A-matches against Costa Rica (2-2 draw) and Cameroon (1-0 win) with 1 win and 1 draw.
This September game was an important event in many ways. This was the last ‘full’ inspection bringing together all the foreign players before the 2022 World Cup in Qatar to be held in November. We are also planning a domestic evaluation game at the beginning of November, but at the moment, it is difficult for foreign players to join because they have to spend their team’s schedule.
Also, this match against Cameroon was a virtual Ghana match. Korea will face Ghana in the second round of the group stage. Compared to Portugal and Uruguay, Ghana is Korea’s best opponent. Based on the game against Cameroon, it was necessary to check how to deal with Ghana.
First of all, Bento used a 4-2-3-1 formation against Cameroon. Heung-Min Son was in the lead, followed by Hee-Chan Hwang, Woo-Young Jung (Freiburg) and Jae-Sung Lee. Hwang In-beom and Son Jun-ho formed the midfield, and Kim Jin-soo, Kwon Kyung-won, Kim Min-jae, and Kim Mun-hwan worked together in the 400. Kim Seung-gyu kept the goal.
The general framework was the same as before. Son Jun-ho appeared in place of Jung Woo-young (Al Sadd), but he went deep at the back and was actively involved in the build-up. Hwang In-beom’s movements were a little different. The frequency of holding the center of gravity from the back has increased more than usual. In the past, the buildup that Jung Woo-young was primarily responsible for was shared by Son Jun-ho and Hwang In-beom.
In this regard, Hwang In-beom said, “This game was played with Junho (hand) hyung and two volanchi (two defensive midfielders). So, unlike the previous games, we played while keeping’ r center. It was a tactical part. “Since the number of times Hwang In-beom climbs forward has decreased, stability has been added to the build-up and defense.
However, Hwang In-beom didn’t just take a static move. In the second half of the 28th minute, the scene where he blocked the opponent’s counterattack with a game full of fighting spirit was very impressive. A Korean corner kick led to a Cameroon counterattack. Hwang In-beom, who was near the center circle, chased Ngamalu to the end and took the ball.
Hwang In-beom played full time against Costa Rica. And also played 90 minutes against Cameroon. Fans who visited the stadium cheered Hwang In-beom’s fighting spirit and the amount of activity in the middle of the second half amid the situation where he appeared in two games in a row. The two-volunteer check between the player whose main role is accumulating and Hwang In-beom brought good results as synergy was added appropriately.
