‘Papa Park’ Park Hang-seo, who returned to youth education… “We will open the horizon of grassroots football in Vietnam”

Park Hang-seo (64), former head coach of Vietnam’s national soccer team, who caused a sensation by instantly making Vietnam, a country on the periphery of soccer, a dark horse in Asia, is going to nurture young soccer talents locally. In January of this year, he put down the baton of the national team and put an end to his 5 years and 4 months of companionship, but he opened the second act of his relationship with Vietnam in the way of ‘nurturing promising players’.

Former coach Park held a press conference in Hanoi, Vietnam on the 30th and announced that he would open the ‘Park Hang-seo International Football Academy’ named after him. This is a youth soccer class for 300 children aged 7, 9, 11 and 13 years old.

The goal is to help Vietnamese children get access to the advanced youth football system and advance to the world stage. Director Park said, “I have received a lot of encouragement, support and love in Vietnam. The only thing I know how to do well is soccer, so I took up the challenge to repay with soccer,” he said. “In Vietnam, academy soccer has not developed much, but I hope that a new and powerful grassroots soccer system will be established through our academy.”

The reason why the word ‘international’ is included in the name is in the hope that children will get out of the fence of ‘Vietnam’ and acquire global competitiveness. In the future, it plans to create an overseas exchange program to provide talented players with opportunities to realize their dreams on a wider stage. Former coach Park emphasized, “Vietnam must also have international competitiveness so that it can rise to the top of Asia and, by extension, become one of the world’s soccer powerhouses.”

However, it does not directly teach children. Director Park Jeon runs the academy, and Shin Jong-young, a Korean director, is in charge of directing the scene. Instead, Vietnamese coaches and assistants, who were personally selected and taught by Park, are in charge of educating children.

There were some noises before the academy was established. Recently, several fraudulent crimes impersonating ‘Park Hang-seo Soccer Academy’ have occurred in various places in Vietnam, and parents have suffered financial damage. The academy plans to take action to help the victims.메이저놀이터

Former director Park stepped into the ‘training of dreamers’, but he did not completely leave the scene. When asked whether he would return to the managerial position in the future, he said, “I think it has been verified in Southeast Asia. If the environment or conditions are right and a suitable team appears, I have an idea to take on the challenge.”

In October 2017, former coach Park, who was appointed as the head coach of the Vietnamese national football team, raised the national team from 130th to 92nd in the FIFA rankings, emerging as a ‘national hero’. Thanks to his caring leadership, he is nicknamed ‘Papa Park (Park’s father)’ locally. As if reflecting his high popularity, more than 100 people, including Vietnam Football Association officials and local reporters, gathered at the press conference on the 30th to cheer for his new start.

Tran Quoc Tuan, president of the Vietnam Football Federation, did not hide his expectations, saying, “The establishment of the academy will contribute to deepening friendship and cooperation between Korea and Vietnam.” Mai Duc Trung, head coach of the Vietnamese women’s national soccer team, also said, “I hope that through Park’s challenge, promising Vietnamese soccer players will grow and play an active part in the national team in the future.”

SSG virtually completed the idea of ​​an extended entry for 5 players, including rookie outfielder Kim Jung-min

 SSG Landers has virtually completed the composition of the expansion entry (a measure to temporarily expand the first-team entry at the end of the season) that will take effect from September 1st.

According to the expansion entry, an additional 5 people can join the existing 28 people, so it is possible to pack an entry of 33 people.

SSG coach Kim Won-hyung, who met with reporters at SSG Landers Field in Incheon on the 31st, said, “We have almost completed the idea of ​​an extended entry.”안전놀이터

Coach Kim said, “Including Kim Min-sik (catcher) and Oh Tae-gon (outfielder), Kim Jung-min (outfielder) and Kim Joo-han (pitcher)” are coming up. ” he said. Director Kim added, “Kim Jung-min is a resource capable of great defense and large runners.”

Catcher Kim Min-sik and infielder and captain Oh Tae-gon were notified of going to the 2nd team on the 18th due to rest and sluggishness, and returned to the 1st team in two weeks.

The notable names are outfielder Kim Jung-min (19) and pitcher Kim Joo-han (30), who joined in the 3rd round of SSG this year. Kim Jung-min only played 6 games in the 1st team this year, but in the Futures League (2nd team), he was active with a batting average of 0.251 (54 hits in 215 at-bats) and 2 homers, and was selected as a Futures League All-Star.

Kim Joo-han did not have a first-team appearance record this season, but he recorded 3 wins, 7 holds, and an average ERA of 3.09 in 32 appearances in the Futures League.

On the other hand, the expansion entry is a measure to temporarily expand the 1st team entry in order to allow players who are usually in the 2nd team to participate in 1st team games and gain practical experience. is being implemented in

“You get stronger in extreme situations”… ‘Woo-hyeon Second Coming’ Hyundai Steel, 11 consecutive losses in the dramatic regular league ‘golden achievement’

Incheon Hyundai Steel dramatically achieved 11 consecutive victories in the ‘Hyundai Steel 2023 WK League’.

In the women’s unemployment soccer WK League, Hyundai Steel is the ‘absolute leader’. Hyundai Steel, which boasts a lineup with national team-level resources, did not miss the regular league championship from 2013 to last year.

The same goes for the championship match, which went directly to first place in the regular league. In the last five years, Gyeongju KHNP threatened its position as it came up, but it was Hyundai Steel that lifted the championship trophy. Anyway, winning is an abbreviation for Hyundai Checheol, ‘Uh Woo-hyeon’ is not a word that came out for nothing.

This season has been a bit lackluster. Until last season, he showed off the aspect of an ‘absolute powerhouse’ by achieving an unprecedented ‘integrated 10 consecutive losses’ throughout the ball game, but was anxious in the beginning. There were many times when it was not possible to form elite members due to the selection of the national team and injuries. Hyundai Steel, which was running at the top of the regular league, was nowhere to be found. In the 3rd to 6th rounds, Suwon FC Women (0-1), Hwacheon KSPO (0-2), Sejong Sports Toto (1-2), and Gyeongju KHNP (1-2) lost in a row, winning four consecutive losses.

At one time, it was placed in the awkward position of ‘fifth place’. In the meantime, Suwon FC and Hwacheon KSPO competed for the lead.

However, it gradually turned on the stretch. Hyundai Steel, which ended its losing streak with a draw with Seoul City Hall in the 7th round and ran for 5 consecutive wins and accumulated points without a ‘loss’, has settled into the top ranks.

On the 29th, the long-awaited final match of the WK League regular season was held. 3rd place Hyundai Steel (39 points) faced 7th place Seoul City Hall (21 points), and 1st place Hwacheon KSPO (40 points) faced 2nd place Suwon FC (39 points). Even if Hyundai Steel won, if Hwacheon KSPO defeated Suwon FC, a come-from-behind victory was impossible. In addition, if Suwon FC won, it was a situation where we had to compare the goal difference and the number of goals scored.

Hyundai Steel seized the opportunity to win early. Starting with Jang Seul-gi’s opening goal in the 47th minute of the first half, Jeong Seol-bin’s multi-goal, Son Hwa-yeon, Jang Seul-gi, and Choi Yu-ri scored consecutively in the second half to win 6-0.스포츠토토

The match between Hwacheon KSPO and Suwon FC was fierce. Hwacheon KSPO took the lead with Moon Eun-joo’s goal in the 23rd minute, but Suwon FC’s Moon Mi-ra equalized in the 37th minute. And six minutes later, they even managed to turn the corner, and seemed to be getting closer to the championship. However, in the 23rd minute of the second half, Hwacheon KSPO Lee Soo-bin scored an equalizer and the game ended in a 2-2 draw.

Hyundai Steel, which accumulated 42 points, won the regular league championship for 11 consecutive years. Hyundai Steel director Kim Eun-sook said, “I told you not to rush it. Anyway, the opportunity came, so I said let’s grab it. We felt again that we become stronger when we come to extreme situations. heaven helped It was rather thrilling in the part that no one expected our victory,” he said with a smile.

Now is the postseason. In November, Hwacheon KSPO and Suwon FC, who placed 2nd and 3rd in the regular season, will play a playoff match. The winner faces Hyundai Steel, who went directly to the championship match, for the championship cup, going back and forth between home and away.

“Oh my gosh… I need to go see the pitching coach soon.” Manager Lee Seung-yeop grows worried

“I feel like I’m being pushed too far.”

The 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League match between Doosan and LG scheduled at Jamsil Baseball Stadium in Seoul on the 30th was canceled due to heavy rain soaking Jamsil. It was canceled two days in a row following the previous day (29th). In the yard where the remaining game schedules have already been announced, canceled games pile up. The worries of the Korea Baseball Organization (KBO) as well as the managers of each team deepen.안전놀이터

The same goes for Doosan coach Lee Seung-yeop. While conducting a dugout interview with reporters ahead of the game on the 30th, a notice of cancellation of the game appeared on the electronic board. Director Lee said, “Oh… After spitting out a short sigh, he left the words, “I have to go see the pitching coach soon.”

This is because we cannot help but talk about the starting rotation due to ongoing cancellations. The command tower said, “Now we have to play some games. Of course, taking a break isn’t bad, but it’s pushed too far. There is also rain in the forecast this weekend. If you do it wrong, you may have to play 8 games next week. Of course, I can’t help the rain falling, but shouldn’t I do it now?” he complained. Doosan is scheduled to play a double header with Samsung on the 9th of next month.

Director Lee, who left Dougout after the interview, announced the selection on the 31st as Kwak Bin after much thought. The order numbers to be followed are also planned to be gradually determined through additional consultations.

Gwangju Lee Soon-min, Dan Gwangju, marks the first Taegeuk mark in the goal net of AT Madrid

A late tag warrior was born in Klins Manho’s 2 consecutive A-matches in Europe in September. The main character is Lee Soon-min (29), a midfielder for Gwangju FC in the professional soccer K League 1.

Lee Soon-min was named in the September European expedition list led by coach Jurgen Klinsmann.

An unknown player with no representative career in that common age group got a chance to work with star players such as Son Heung-min (Tottenham) and Kim Min-jae (Bayern Munich) who are on the European stage.

Born in 1994, Lee Soon-min led Gwangju’s promotion from K-League 2 (2nd division) last year and is also active as a key midfielder in K-League 1 (1st division) this season.

Due to his steady performance, last month he was selected for the K-League All-Star “Team K League” and participated in a friendly match against Atlético Madrid (AT Madrid, Spain) in Coupang and scored the winning goal.

He was also selected for his A national team and is having the best year of his football career, wearing the Taegeuk mark for the first time in his life.메이저사이트

Lee Soon-min is expected to compete with Park Yong-woo (Al-Ain) for the position of defensive midfielder in the national team.

In addition, it is true that it is not easy to get a chance to play as there are other outstanding competitors such as Hwang In-beom (Olympiacos), Lee Dong-gyeong (Ulsan), and Hong Hyeon-seok (Ghent).

However, coach Klinsman expected that Lee’s selection would bring a new change to the national team.

Coach Klinsmann said, “Lee Soon-min is a player who has been consistently active in the K-League. The selection of these new players will be the beginning of a change to achieve the goal of winning the Asian Cup.”

Although it was short, if Lee Soon-min shows his performance in the match against AT Madrid, there is a possibility that he will be competitive in the national team.

In addition, the selection of Lee Soon-min is a stimulus to other players active in the K-League.

Lee Soon-min, also known as a singing soccer player, is a ‘rapper’ who works under the stage name ‘wero’. He drew attention for his hip-hop performance at the K-League Awards Ceremony held at the end of last year.

For Lee Soon-min, who mainly tells his own stories in his songs, the first Taegeuk mark in his life can be a good material.

Through the Gwangju club, Lee Soon-min said, “I’m happy to be able to achieve the honor of being the first Taegeuk mark in a team called Gwangju.” He expressed his determination.

‘There is no baseball on the 29th’ Jamsil rival confrontation canceled… All 5 games of ‘Pouring Rain’ were canceled 

 The match between Doosan Bears and LG Twins at Jamsil Rivals was canceled due to rain.

Doosan and LG were scheduled to play the 11th game of the season between the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO league teams at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul on the 29th. However, due to the aftermath of rain from the morning of the day, I had to take a day off.메이저사이트

On this day, heavy rain poured down in the metropolitan area from the morning. Why did Typhoon Haikui affect the Korean Peninsula as it moved north? At 3:00 PM, 3 hours and 30 minutes before the start of the game, the rain seemed to have subsided at Jamsil Stadium, but after a while, it started to drizzle again, and even with the start of the game imminent, the rain poured down and the game was eventually canceled.

The match was very important for both teams. Doosan fell to 6th place after suffering a ‘Losing Series’ in 3 consecutive matches with SSG Landers last weekend, and LG Twins also recorded a ‘sweep loss’ in 3 consecutive matches with NC Dinos on the weekend, and was chased by 2nd place KT Wiz by 4.5 games. . However, as the game was not held, they were able to take another day off.

Due to the influence of rain across the country on this day, it will be held at five stadiums: Gwangju (NC-KIA), Incheon (Kiwoom-SSG), Daejeon (Lotte-Hanwha), Suwon (Samsung-KT), and Jamsil (Doosan-LG). The match was canceled indefinitely. In the case of Gwangju, Munhak, Daejeon, and Jamsil, the canceled matches on this day were scheduled later because there was no reserve day, and the Suwon (Samsung-KT) match was held on September 19th.

Meanwhile, on the same day, the KBO announced the remaining game schedule, and the schedule was confirmed with the goal of ending the season on October 10th. However, as a series of rainy weather cancellations occurred, depending on the situation, it was possible to play the game after October 10th.

‘As expected, money is the best’ Crazy annual salary of ‘Spain’s biggest prospect’ who went to Saudi Arabia, earns 14.3 billion a year!

Gabri Beiga, who shook off Naples’ attention and went to Saudi Arabia, will receive a huge salary.

French media ‘French Football Weekly’ said on the 27th (Korean time), ‘Gabri Beiga will receive a huge salary increase after joining Saudi Arabia’s Al Ahli. Beiga reports that he will receive 30 million euros (approximately 42.9 billion won) for a three-year contract in the Arab world.’

Veigar is an all-weather midfielder who can play as a central, flanking, and attacking midfielder. He has good fundamentals, good ball control, and great off-the-ball movement, so he has a very aggressive nature.스포츠토토

Veigar made his debut for Celta Vigo in 2020 and has been a regular since the 2022/23 season as a substitute for Bryce Mendes. He showed great performance as a starter and recorded double-digit attack points, and several big clubs sent love calls due to his performance.

Since March, several top teams such as Liverpool, Arsenal, Chelsea, Real Madrid, Barcelona, ​​etc. have been attached and have actually pushed for a transfer, but no team has been able to pay his expensive transfer fee. Napoli have been actively sticking since August, and according to Romano on August 12th, the relationship between Celta Vigo and Napoli is almost over.

However, Al Ahli, who was targeting Napoli’s Zielinski, jumped at Veigar immediately after Zielinski announced that he would stay and paid Veigar’s buyout. Napoli offered 36 million euros (approximately 51.6 billion won) and an annual salary of 2.2 million euros (approximately 3.1 billion won), but Saudi Arabia offered a buyout of 40 million euros (approximately 57.3 billion won) and eventually succeeded in recruiting.

The choice was met with mixed criticism from Real Madrid’s Toni Kroos, who also played in Spanish La Liga, and the salary made Veigar more than the top midfielders in the world.

There were no WBC sequelae. 18 times in QS and 16 times in QS+. 12 consecutive QS-7 consecutive QS+. Now I follow Ryu Hyun-jin

Will Ko Young-pyo be able to catch up with Ryu Hyun-jin?

KT Wiz Young-pyo Koh’s quality start march continues. He’s still a long way off, but he’s getting closer to his record.

Ko Young-pyo started in the home game against the KIA Tigers held at KT Wiz Park in Suwon on the 24th and threw 99 balls in 7 innings, scoring 6 hits, 1 walk, 1 walk, 5 strikeouts and 2 runs (1 earned). This is the season’s 18th quality start (QS, 6 or more starting innings and 3 earned or less) and 16th quality start plus (QS+, 7 or more starting innings and 3 earned or less). He also continued the great record of 12 consecutive QS and 7 consecutive QS +. 12 consecutive games QS is the most KT club record.

The QS record for consecutive games is held by Ryu Hyun-jin of the Hanwha Eagles. Following 2009 and 2010, he achieved QS in 29 consecutive games. In terms of a single season, 23 consecutive games in 2010 are QS. In the current situation, which has come to the end of the season, Koh Young-pyo cannot break the QS record for the most consecutive games in a season. However, if he can continue QS until next year, he might be able to expect a great record.

He is more focused on the ‘plus’ when he stops with 7 or more innings and 3 earned runs or less.

16 QS+ is an overwhelming first place. Second place is David Buchanan of the Samsung Lions and Raul Alcantara of the Doosan Bears, number 10. This means that there are only three pitchers who have achieved QS+ 10 or more times so far.

The most QS+ in a season is 33 times, recorded by Jang Myeong-bu (Sammi Superstars) in 1983. Recently, a starting pitcher has made about 30 appearances, and to break Jang Myung-bu’s record, he has to do QS+ in all appearances. The 2nd place in the history is 23 times recorded by Lee Sang-hoon of the LG Twins in 1995, Daniel Rios of the Doosan Bears in 2006, and 22 times by Hanwha Eagles Ryu Hyun-jin in 2010 are tied for 3rd place.안전놀이터

Koh Young-pyo can stand shoulder to shoulder with Ryu Hyun-jin if he does QS+ 6 times in the future.

Consecutive games QS+ is also a record worthy of challenge. The most consecutive games QS+ in a season were 12 games recorded by commentator Jeong Min-cheol in 1994, when he was with the Hanwha Eagles. In 2010, Ryu Hyun-jin recorded QS+ twice in 11 consecutive games, and in 2008, Lotte Giants Son Min-han recorded QS+ in 10 consecutive games. If you record QS+ in 5 consecutive games in the future, you will set the record for the most tie in the season.

Ko Young-pyo’s remaining appearances are highly likely to be around 8 if he goes through a normal rotation. If he consistently raises QS and QS + in the remaining games, he will surely make his name in history.

Some of the pitchers who competed in the WBC this year suffered from aftereffects, but Koh Young-pyo quickly brushed it off in the early stages. Koh Young-pyo, who has set many QS and QS+ scores, recorded 10 wins and 5 losses this season with an ERA of 2.45. He is tied for 5th in wins, 5th in earned run average and 6th overall in 139⅔ innings pitched.

‘Goal~goal~goal!’ Anyang proves former killer, jumps to 3rd place!

‘Goal, goal, goal!

A powerful one-two punch followed by three uppercuts. The opponent was already in a groggy state. This happened until the fourth minute of the second half. FC Anyang once again confirmed their status as the ‘Jeonnam Killer’ this season, defeating the Jeonnam Dragons 3-1. After conceding two goals in the first half and then a wedge goal early in the second half, Jeonnam couldn’t find any pace. Valdivia’s goal came in the 26th minute of the second half, but it wasn’t enough to turn the tide.

Anyang won 3-1 in the 28th round of the Hana OneQ K League 2 2023 at their home stadium, Anyang Sports Complex, on the 27th, thanks to goals from Yago and Joo Hyun-woo in the first half and a wedge goal from Bruno in the fourth minute of the second half. With the win, Anyang has now won all three matches against Jeonnam this season, and with the three goals and three points, the team jumped up three spots in the standings, overtaking Gyeongnam FC (42 points) for third place on goal difference.스포츠토토

Before the game, it was expected to be a close contest. It was a matchup between fifth-ranked Anyang and sixth-ranked Jeonnam, and Jeonnam was coming off a 2-1 victory over league leader Gimcheon in their previous match. The managers of both teams practically predicted an all-out war to win the ‘six points’ match.

However, when the kickoff whistle blew, Anyang took control of the game. Anyang was fresh off a two-week break, so their fitness was strong, and they took the lead in the 16th minute. Yago, who started on the right flank, made an aggressive move and made a quick run from the right to the center. He then took over Bruno’s pass in the center and scored the first goal.

As Jeonnam reeled from the goal, another goal came, this time from veteran Joo Hyun-woo, who shook the Jeonnam goal. After receiving a pass from Yago in the center, Joo broke through the box and calmly scored past the opposing goalkeeper. The first half ended 2-0.

However, the rejuvenated Anyang’s offense continued early in the second half. In the fourth minute of the second half, Bruno scored again, this time with an assist from Yago. After receiving a corner kick from Joo Hyun-woo, Yago sent in a cross that Bruno slid in to make it 3-0. Jeonnam was completely in a groggy state. Jeonnam managed to escape defeat in the 26th minute of the second half when Valdivia converted a free kick into an exquisite goal. Jeonnam played with all their might until the sixth minute of stoppage time, but they were unable to open the Anyang goal any further.

Batter possessed chameleon pitch… Ryu Hyun-jin’s ‘Monster’s Color’

“Veteran crafty, throwback lefty.”

This is what Toronto Blue Jays manager John Schneider called Ryu Hyun-jin (36, Toronto). That means he’s clever on the mound and handles hitters well.

On the 27th (Korean time), Ryu Hyun-jin started in the 2023 Major League Cleveland Guardians home game held at the Rogers Center in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, and recorded 4 hits (2 homers), 5 strikeouts and 3 runs (2 earned) in 5 innings. He did not give up a single walk. 70 pitches (49 strikes). Using Ryu Hyun-jin’s good pitch as a stepping stone, Toronto won 8-3 and escaped the recent three-game losing streak. Ryu Hyun-jin continued his three-game winning streak after the Chicago Cubs game on the 14th. He underwent left elbow ligament joint surgery at a not small age and returned to the big leagues after 14 months. This is why director Schneider is surprised.

Ryu Hyun-jin cooked Cleveland’s batting line with clever pitching that controlled the strength and weakness. His highest velocity of his fastball was 146km/h, but he took away the opponent’s timing by throwing a mix of a changeup and a curveball with a large drop. After 2 outs in the top of the 4th inning, he took a strike against Andres Jimenez with a curve at 68.1 miles per hour (109.6 km) for the first pitch, induced a foul with a cutter at 85.1 miles per hour (137 km), and then missed with a curve at 64.6 miles per hour (104 km) in the third pitch. The highlight was the swing strikeout. It was a 64.6 mph curve that was more effective than a 100 mph (161 km) fastball.

Coach Schneider said in an interview with local newspapers such as the Toronto Line after the game, “(Ryu Hyun-jin’s pitching) was amazing and efficient. He had good control and I thought he was really great,” he praised Ryu Hyun-jin, saying, “He has excellent judgment on his pitch and batter’s movement, and he can adjust his speed like the best pitcher in the league.” Regarding the change of Ryu Hyun-jin, who had a low number of pitches in the top of the 6th inning due to a series of fielder errors, he explained that “because we have good options in our bullpen.” Lee Mi-mi Garcia, who got on the mound after Ryu Hyun-jin went down, gave the first hitter a ball that hit her body and gave up one point, but all the other three batters struck out.안전놀이터

Ryu Hyun-jin said through an interpreter, “I am satisfied because all pitches are going well overall,” and “the most important thing is that I can do what I did today because my body is healthy.” Regarding rookie second baseman Davis Schneider, who made a big success with 3 hits, 1 walk, 3 RBIs and 3 runs on the day, including the final home run, he said, “After coming up from the minor leagues, he has been doing well for our team in all aspects of offense, defense and running.”

Ryu Hyun-jin, who won 3 wins (1 loss) in the season, had an average ERA of 2.25. On that day, 41,924 full spectators entered the Rogers Center to confirm the health of team ace Ryu Hyun-jin. Toronto is currently competing for the American League wild card with 71 wins and 59 losses (0.546 win rate).
