Hwang Seon-Hong-ho, amidst China quarterfinals, is expressing his peak confidence, stating that he can win it all
In a press conference before training on April 26 at the Jinhua Sports School Training Center in China, Jeonbuk Hyundai striker Park Jae-yong (21), who is from South Korea, said, “I think the atmosphere is really good because we won all three games (in the group stage).”
Korea earned top place in the group and advanced to the round of 16 after defeating Kuwait 9-0 in the opening match and Thailand 4-0 in the second match. In the third game, they defeated Bahrain 3-0 and went on to clinch the group stage without giving up a goal.

The country lost to both North Korea and Indonesia but triumphed over Taiwan 4-1 in the third match and defeated Indonesia on goal difference to finish second in the group and move on to the round of 16.
Jaeyong Park scored one goal while playing as a substitute against Kuwait and then another goal while playing as a replacement against Thailand and Bahrain to aid the squad to three victories in a row.
Jaeyong Park said, “Personally, I feel a bit disappointed that I wasn’t able to score many points, but since this is the real start, I want to play with the team as a priority rather than scoring.”
He also emphasized, “Scoring always seems to be the fate of strikers,” and “If the opportunity comes, I want to turn it into a good opportunity and go higher and make the Korean people happy.”
This group stage was scheduled to compete with 23 countries divided into 6 groups of 4 countries, but Syria and Afghanistan, which were in Group C, withdrew from participation ahead of the competition, reducing the number to 21 countries.

North Korea, participating in an international competition for the first time in five years, also emerged as a dark horse by passing Group F in first place.
When asked which team among the countries participating in the round of 16 the players are picky about, Jaeyong Park expressed confidence, saying, “Rather than wondering who will be picky, I think we are an opponent that we can beat if we do what we do, so we are not making too much of a fuss.”
When asked if he had ever watched the group stage matches played by other teams, he said, “I watch almost all of them on my cell phone, and people often talk about ‘who is stronger’ in the media, such as Uzbekistan or their home country, China. But I don’t really care.” raised it
