“It’s a mindset to enjoy rather than burden.”

Yang Hyeon-jun (20) was named to the under-24 soccer team training list led by coach Hwang Seon-hong and was summoned to the Paju National Training Center (NFC) on the 15th.

This competition is foreshadowed as a ‘previous second-line competition’. The Asian Games were originally scheduled to be held last year, but were postponed due to Corona 19. As a result, the age of participation has been expanded to include players under the age of 24, not 23, and opportunities are open to players born in 1999.

Lee Kang-in (Mallorca), Yang Hyun-jun (Gangwon FC), Go Young-jun (Pohang Steelers), Um Ji-seong (Gwangju FC), Jung Woo-young (Fraivupk), Song Min-gyu (Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors), and Eom Won-sang (Ulsan Hyundai) were added. A large number of players who were said to be the best in the league were herded.

Prior to training on the 16th, Yang Hyeon-joon, who met with reporters, said, “Even if I think about it, it is not easy. If I appeal my strengths to the coach more and show the image I want while adapting to the team little by little, I think I will be able to go through the competition,” he said. “There are so many good players. It’s fun to train together. It is an opportunity to grow a lot while competing here.”

Yang Hyun-joon appeared like a ‘comet’ when he received the K League 1 Young Player Award last season. However, he has slowed down a bit this season. At the beginning of the먹튀검증season, he suffered ups and downs to improve his performance as he left due to a fractured nose bone.

Yang Hyun-joon said, “Since there is a game during the week, the sense of the game is rising. He is better than at the beginning of the season, but he thinks he is still lacking. I have to improve my physical condition and help the team more.”

The outside gaze looking at Yang Hyun-joon is full of ‘anticipation’. He said, “At the beginning, there was a lot of pressure, but now I am trying to enjoy it. If I don’t do well under pressure, I think I’ll remain a mediocre player,” he said. “I try to focus only on the game. Inwardly, he thinks ‘no big deal’. He seems to enjoy it because he does it with the mindset of doing it as usual. He has more expectations when playing against good players. There is more responsibility than burden,” he emphasized.

The convocation training is as short as three days. You have to appeal to the best that you can show. Yang Hyun-joon said, “You emphasize aggressive movement and speed. “I think I need to appeal more to what I have,” he said with a laugh, “The Asian Games roster has not yet been decided. I don’t think I showed all my good looks in the league, so I want to show more. That way, I think he can play an active part even if he goes to the competition,” he said with strength. kkang@sportsseoul.com
