Seoul World Cup Stadium on the 20th of last month. Right wingback Ahn Hyun-beom (28, Jeju United) possessed Gareth Bale. As soon as the speed was set on fire, the side of the opponent, FC Seoul, collapsed.
Ahn Hyun-beom, who created only one chance with explosive speed, assisted Yuri Jonatan’s opening goal and sat down. It was the moment when the advantage of Ahn Hyun-beom, who dominated the right side in the 2023 season, led to the attack point.
Ahn Hyun-beom revealed his greed for the national team to the reporters he met after the game. He trembled, saying, “Reporters write me to pretend to be deceived and pick one.” As such, Ahn Hyun-beom’s recent skills are well-reputed in the K-League. It was evaluated on the spot that he had a pace worthy of being selected for the national team, and he nodded that an opportunity would come someday.
Finally, Ahn Hyun-beom wears the Taegeuk mark. On the 5th, Jurgen Klinsmann, coach of the Korean national soccer team, announced the 23 players who will participate in the A-match evaluation match against Peru (16th, Busan) and El Salvador (20th, Daejeon) in June. Manager Klinsmann’s division selected players that he personally checked after traveling around the country and abroad for about two months.
Ahn Hyun-beom also got a chance to make his A-match debut through coach Klinsman. The word of mouth that ‘doing well in the league’ was definitely important. Regarding the selection of Ahn Hyun-beom, coach Klinsman said, “I haven’t seen the game in person yet.” Perhaps, the recommendations of advisor Cha Du-ri and coach Michael Kim, who are easy to identify domestic players, are strong.
Director Klinsman immediately sees Ahn Hyun-beom with his own eyes. “I’m thinking of watching the game myself this Saturday,” he said. Just in time, Jeju is playing the leading Ulsan Hyundai away game, so it is perfect to check Ahn Hyun-beom’s competitiveness.
Ahn Hyun-beom’s strengths are clear. It is the highest dollar (hit and run) in the K-League. It is difficult to control Ahn Hyeon-beom when he accelerates. He is an attacking wing-back, so he shows off his excellent ability to break down the opponent’s flank along with midfielders and wing-forwards. Coach Klinsman also identified him as a “one-on-one strong and reckless player” and expressed his willingness to watch carefully to see if he could crack in the on-the-ball situation, saying, “Lee Kang-in is like that. It feels good as a manager to see an aggressive player.”안전놀이터
Ahn Hyun-beom is confident. He said with a loud voice that he was “born” in terms of speed, “I’ve known that I was fast since I was young. I tried to use my strengths well.
Hearing the news of being selected for the national team, Ahn Hyun-beom tightened his soccer shoes even more. Through the Jeju club, he pledged, “If I join the national team, I want to show what I can do well. I think I was selected because I have advantages that are different from others. I want to show my ability.”
