Korean national team defender Kim Ji-soo (Seongnam), who finished fourth in the FIFA U-20 World Cup, pledged to continue growing with this tournament as a starting point.

Korea, led by coach Kim Eun-joong (44), lost 1-3 to Israel in the 3rd and 4th place matches of the 2023 FIFA U-20 World Cup held at La Plata Stadium in La Plata, Argentina on the 12th (Korean time).

On this day, Korea gave up the opening goal to Israel’s Ran Binyamin in the 19th minute of the first half, and Lee Seung-won (Gangwon) succeeded in a penalty kick in the 24th minute of the first half, five minutes later, returning the match to the starting point. However, Omer Senior in the 31st minute of the second half and Anan Carlyle in the 40th minute of the second half conceded consecutive goals, and eventually knelt down.

He said, “Playing on a stage like this itself became an opportunity for me to grow as a player. I was grateful to be able to play in front of a large crowd while keeping pace with good players.”

He continued, “I want to go to a bigger stage while playing this World Cup,” and said, “I want to become a player who makes my team do well rather than personal goals.”
