‘Ace’ Bae Joon-ho leads Kim Eun-jung-ho to the quarterfinals…the most divine moment in the K League

Kim Eun-Joong-ho was the ace in the hole in the K League.

Bae Jun-ho (Daejeon Hana Citizen, 20) led the South Korea Under-20 soccer team to the quarterfinals of the U-20 World Cup. He had a slow start to the tournament, missing time due to injury, but showed his true colors in the crucial first stage of the tournament.

Bae started against Ecuador in the round of 16 at the FIFA U-20 World Cup 2023 at the Santiago del Estero Stadium in Argentina on June 2 at 6 a.m. ET, scoring a goal and adding an assist to help Korea advance to the quarterfinals with a 3-2 victory.

Starting on the flank, Bae made his presence felt in the 11th minute. He attacked from the left side and delivered a sharp cross to Munjeon instead of passing to the flank. Lee Young-joon (Gimcheon Commerce), who dug into the back of the defense, chest-trapped Bae Jun-ho’s cross and connected with a right-footed shot for the first goal.

Eight minutes later, Bae Jun-ho took matters into his own hands. After a throw-in, he met Park Chang-woo’s (Jeonbuk Hyundai) straight pass from the right flank with an exquisite right-footed trap. He then broke down the opposing defense and goalkeeper in the center of the penalty box with a painting run, and rattled the net with his right foot. It was the perfect example of Bae’s talent.

Bae Jun-ho continued to play at the center of Kim Eun-jung-ho’s attack until he was replaced by Cho Young-kwang (FC Seoul) in the 37th minute of the second half. Despite conceding a late goal after Bae Jun-ho’s departure, the match ended with a 3-2 victory for South Korea. After the match, FIFA said, “Bae Joon-ho was outstanding as South Korea advanced to the quarterfinals.”

The performance was even more significant as it shook off the disappointments of the early stages of the tournament.

Bae Jun-ho has been the most consistently called up since Kim Eun-jung-ho’s inauguration, playing as an ace early on, with his number 10 symbolizing the ace. Especially this season, his second year as a professional and first in the K League 1, he was a starter for his club. With his brilliant passing and individual skills, he was quickly recognized as one of the top divinities in the K League. He was also virtually the only player in the tournament to make regular appearances in the K League. This was the reason why he was the favorite ahead of the U-20 World Cup 메이저사이트.

However, injuries seemed to catch up with him. He started the first group game against Honduras, but was subbed off early in the second half due to the effects of the injury, and then came on as a substitute against the Gambia in the round of 16.

Fortunately, as time went on, he shook off the injury and his performance slowly improved, and it was in the round of 16 match against Ecuador that his talent shone through. Not only did he set up Lee Young-joon for the opening goal, but his second goal, which he scored himself, showed his unique flair.

The presence of a fully fit Bae Joon-ho has also been a boost for Kim Eun-jung-ho, who is the only Asian player still in the tournament. Frontline striker Lee Young-joon (Gimcheon Commerce) has two goals and one assist, while Kim Yong-hak (Portimonense) and Lee Seung-won (Gangwon FC) have also been steady. With the addition of ace Bae Joon-ho, Kim’s spear is even sharper.

Bae told the Korea Football Association shortly after the game, “I had a lot of injuries, so I felt sorry for my teammates. I thought about playing hard rather than doing well, but there were good results.” “After I was substituted, I trusted my friends and teammates and cheered them on. No matter who my opponent is, I will do my best to prepare well and show a good game like I have been doing so far.”

Kim will face Nigeria in the quarterfinals at the same Santiago del Estero Stadium that hosted Ecuador at 2:30 a.m. on May 5. If they beat the Nigerians, they will play the winner of the Italy-Colombia match for a spot in the final.

‘Leadoff man’ Kim goes 2-for-4 with a double and a walk…10 stolen bases for second straight year

San Diego Padres leadoff hitter Ha-Sung Kim turned in a multi-hit performance to help his team win.

Kim went 1-for-4 with a home run, a walk, two runs scored and a stolen base in the leadoff spot against the Miami Marlins on Sunday at Marlins Park in Miami, Florida. His season batting average remained at .241 and his OPS increased slightly to .717.

Kim worked a full count against Miami starter Jesus Luzardo in his first at-bat of the game in the top of the first inning, but struck out swinging on a six-pitch 97.8-mile-per-hour fastball.

Kim led off the fourth inning with an 0-2 count and took a 96.8 mph (155.8 km/h) fastball high on the body for a two-run double to left field. It was San Diego’s first hit of the day. Kim followed it up with a daring steal of third base. It was his 10th stolen base of the season, marking the second consecutive year he has reached double digits in stolen bases, dating back to last month’s 29th game against the New York Yankees. He later came home to tie the game when Fernando Tatis Jr. hit a ground-rule double.

After singling to left field with the bases loaded in the top of the fifth, Kim completed his multi-hit game in the top of the seventh when he calmly drew a walk with runners on first and second. He came home on a ground-rule double by Tatis Jr. for his second run of the day. 토토사이트

San Diego scored seven runs in the sixth inning alone to take the 10- win, avenging a close loss the day before.

There is no Ohtani in Korean baseball. Only sulpan remains. Taegeukmark is…

In Korean baseball, there is no otani, no glory. There’s only a drinking game. Taegeuk-mark is…

“Morally and humanly, there is no one to serve as a role model. It’s hard to find the best in the world in terms of skill, but in terms of humanity…I’m ashamed and sorry for my fellow baseball players.”

This is part of a conversation I had with a former national team legend after the WBC late-night drinking scandal. As he says, Korean baseball has no icons anymore. Its international performance has long since plummeted, and the only thing that remains is the drinking scandal.

Kim Kwang-hyun, Lee Yong-chan, and Jeong Chul-won apologized in tandem ahead of their one-day games at Incheon SSG Landers Field and Changwon NC Park, respectively, revealing that they were the ones responsible for reports of late-night drinking incidents during the WBC tournament.

Earlier, a media outlet and a YouTube channel reported that some players who competed in the World Baseball Classic (WBC) on March 30 had consumed alcohol in Tokyo, Japan, where the first round of the tournament was held.

Three players bowed their heads in public three days after the report. However, overall public opinion hasn’t changed much. The players’ claims that there were no bars or female hostesses are hard to believe, and even if they were true, the public’s reaction is that they behaved in a way that is not acceptable for a national team member.

It is very painful to see the public viewing this as a moral hazard for the entire baseball world and the national team, not just the deviation of a few players. However, it is a reaction that should not be overlooked.

When we look at the reactions of many members of the baseball community, baseball fans, and the general public after the drinking scandal during the WBC, it seems that the players’ apologies and truth-telling are not what really matter. One cannot help but feel that Korean baseball has lost something important.

As many of us witnessed at the WBC, Japan’s baseball team rallied around an ace in Shohei Ohtani (LA Angels) to win the championship. His dedication to “Samurai Japan” has been an inspiration to Japanese baseball fans and the public, as he is one of the world’s best “idoru players,” a type of hitter and pitcher who plays in Major League Baseball.

Before and during the tournament, he and Darvish Yu (San Diego), the team’s top staff member, took on the role of leaders, rallying the players and speaking humbly but confidently about their goals in front of the media.

At dinners and team meetings organized by Ohtani and Darvish, the Japanese team nodded in agreement as they listened to the confidence-boosting and motivational words of the two. The Japanese people and baseball fans felt the same way, especially when Ohtani celebrated his championship-clinching save in the final game, which many consider to be one of the greatest moments in WBC history.

It was frustrating and enviable to watch the Japanese, as well as the Australian and Czech teams, who were considered weaker than us or on the fringes of baseball, play their best from the qualifying to the quarterfinal rounds. Especially, they talked about their dreams, hopes, and happiness throughout the tournament, even in semi-professional environments where they couldn’t focus on baseball.

While watching the stark contrast between them and the Korean national team, the reporter couldn’t help but feel bitter and sad. There was an inexplicable feeling of anguish and resentment, but at the same time, I kept hoping for a miracle. 스포츠토토

As a third party, I accompanied the team throughout the tournament with a highly subjective, one-sided support, encouragement, and love or hate. I’m sure many baseball fans felt the same way.

However, it was the saddest and hardest thing for me, both professionally and personally, to watch the reactions of the Korean people and baseball fans who were deeply disappointed after watching the outcome of their expectations once again turn out to be a disaster. I felt even more helpless because I read and sympathized with the frustration contained in their disappointment.

On the one hand, it was a disappointing result for an individual who was nothing, but I thought that the national team, who wore the flag and gave their all, must also be very frustrated and discouraged. I tried to empathize with their feelings. But in the end, the efforts and hearts of “us” were betrayed in the end.

Considered one of the best baseball players in the world, Ohtani has never been a cliché throughout his career, and has always maintained a sincere and exemplary demeanor, which is why he is not only a representative of Japanese baseball, but also an icon of Japanese sports.

From his youth, he read a lot of books and set goals for himself to become one of the best players in the world, and even now that he’s a superstar, he hasn’t gotten used to the responsibility, which is why he is the pride of Samurai Japan and the pride of the Japanese people.

In the absence of cheers and sweat, what is left? Who would be happy to watch a world where only ugliness remains?

Instead of being able to see the beautiful world, why should baseball fans have to see their intimate and tainted affairs that they don’t need to know. Not only this time, but this year, baseball fans had to hear about all kinds of incidents and accidents before baseball-related news.

I wonder if they missed out on something so important. Watching the national teams of other sports, seeing how they have grown up, and watching the baseball world in light of the current level of consciousness in Korea, another question comes to mind.

What does the flag mean to them, to Korean baseball?

Goldglover at 15% odds, colleagues “look up to”…proved $11.8 billion in value in one year, “exceeded expectations”

Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Kevin Kiermaier, who won the American League Gold Glove in 2015, 2016, and 2019, surprised everyone with a no-hitter.

Kiermaier started in center field and batted eighth in the lineup against the Milwaukee Brewers on Sunday (Feb. 2) at Rogers Centre in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, and went hitless in four at-bats.

Kiermaier, who had been hitting in the triple digits this season, was silent against Milwaukee. Instead, the three-time Gold Glove winner allowed his fellow starters to get the job done. 메이저사이트

“Kiermeyer made a masterpiece,” MLB.com wrote, “racing 92 feet in 4.7 seconds to snag a fly ball as it headed toward the right-center field track. It’s hard for even the best athletes to make a catch like that, but Kiermeyer did it at a speed of 30.4 feet per second north of the plate.”

It happened in the second inning, with Toronto up 3-0. Starter Kevin Gausman threw a 96.5 mph four-seam fastball on six pitches to Andrew Monasterio with two outs in the inning. Monasterio batted, and the pitch was hit to right-center field.

It looked like it was going to clear right-center field, but center fielder Kiermeyer chased the pitch with tremendous speed and threw himself at it. The pitch went right into Kiermeyer’s glove. According to MLB.com, he had a “15 percent chance of catching it.”

While he didn’t produce a hit or an RBI, Hosmer helped his team win the game. Gausman, who picked up his fourth win of the season, acknowledged that. “I saw a lot of plays like that when I was in Baltimore,” he said after the game, “so I have a lot of respect for Keirmeier. I’m glad he did it for me now.”

“Kiermeyer, who signed a one-year, $9 million deal in the offseason, has exceeded all expectations with his versatility,” MLB.com wrote.

‘Gambia have packed their bags’ as Uruguay join South America in U-20 WC quarterfinals

Seven of the eight tickets to the quarterfinals have been finalized. South America is in very strong form.

The Uruguay Under-20 National Team won their FIFA U-20 World Cup 2023 Round of 16 match against The Gambia 1-0 on Sunday (Feb. 2) at Estadio Unico Madre de Ciudades in Argentina.

Uruguay entered the round of 16 in second place in Group E with a 2-1 record in the group stage. The Gambia had two wins and one draw. They entered the tournament as the top seed in Group F.

토토사이트 Both teams experienced a first-half sending-off. In the 17th minute of the first half, Gambia’s Mansour Mbiyi left the field for a red card. In first-half stoppage time, Uruguay’s Luciano Rodriguez was shown a red card. The tense ‘0’ balance was broken in the second 20 minutes. Uruguay’s Andersson Duarte converted a pass from Alan Maturo into the net. There were no more goals. Uruguay won 1-0.

Israel-Brazil, Colombia-Italy, and USA-Uruguay have been drawn for the quarterfinals. Nigeria will face the winner of South Korea-Ecuador. South America dominates. Brazil, Colombia, and Uruguay have reached the quarterfinals in consecutive years. The tournament was originally scheduled to be held in Indonesia. However, due to religious and political reasons, the tournament was moved to Argentina less than 100 days before kickoff.

Setter Hwang Seung-bin “I’ll prove my worth” as ‘KB’s No. 3 player’

Setter Hwang Seung-bin is now KB Insurance’s No. 3 player.

KB Insurance and Woori Card conducted a trade on the 25th. KB Insurance released outside hitter Han Sung-jung and acquired setter Hwang Seung-bin. For Hwang, it’s the first time he’s changed uniforms in a season.

Born in 1992, Hwang was selected by Korean Air with the fifth pick of the first round in the 2014 rookie draft. However, he struggled to establish himself as the starting setter. There was veteran Han, and in 2019, another veteran, Yoo Kwang-woo, moved to Korean Air. Despite this, Hwang Seung-bin was immediately labeled as a powerhouse setter.

Eventually, Hwang was traded to Samsung Fire in 2021. Given the opportunity, Hwang played 33 matches and 126 sets in 2021-22, the most since his professional debut. Just a year later, he was traded again and donned a Woori Card jersey. In 2022-23, he was named captain and played 36 matches and 140 sets. He also ranked second in the league in sets (10.3 per set).

Hwang Seung-bin’s fourth team in the V-League is KB Insurance. Hwang joined KB Insurance on July 26 and began training with the team. “I will prove my worth,” he said in a call with The Spike on the 29th.

This is his third move. Hwang Seung-bin was not happy about it either. He said, “I changed teams again in one season. Honestly, I thought, ‘Is this really a good thing? However, as coach Shin Young-cheol told me, I thought it was right to go to an environment where I could play volleyball better.”

Hwang continued, “Up until now, while playing volleyball, I used to try small and large things on myself during training. For example, I would try to find a style that suits me well by making changes that only I can recognize, such as a slightly different hand shape or a different foot step. At the same time, get the feel for it. I try to find the tosses that I was confident with,” he concluded.

A move is always new. You have to adapt to new teammates, plays, and team atmosphere. “The first time is always awkward,” said Hwang Seung-bin. But since I’ve done it twice, I don’t think it will be too difficult. In fact, when I moved to Samsung Fire, I needed quite a bit of time to adjust, but with Woori Card, that time was shortened,” he said, adding, “(Jung) Min-soo and I talked a lot, (Han) Gook-i was after the army, (Baek) Kwang-hyun and I have been together for a long time at Korean Air, Samsung Fire, and Sangsung, and (Hwang) Kyung-min was also at Samsung Fire.” He also introduced KB Insurance’s strong support team 메이저놀이터.

KB Insurance was also relieved. This is because their starting setter, Hwang Taek-ui, joined the Korean Armed Forces this year. The team has Shin Seung-hoon, born in 2000, and Park Hyun-bin, born in 2004, but neither has played a full season as a starting setter. They have potential, but the risks are obvious. The addition of Hwang Seung-bin to the KB Insurance roster balances out the setters.

After joining the team, Hwang spoke with head coach Hoo In-jung. “He told me to have fun. He told me that the setter is the one who runs the game, so I should have fun and play volleyball.”

KB Insurance re-signed foreign player Bijena this year. “When I was at Korean Air, I was with Bijena for a couple of months after I left the business,” said Hwang Seung-bin about Bijena and Hwang Kyung-min, who played the main role in the previous season. “At that time, Bijena was injured, so we didn’t get along, but I’m personally looking forward to it. She is not a player who covers the setter’s ball. I think I’ll be able to play more comfortably. I’ve also played with Kyung-min at Samsung Fire. I think we’ll be able to match up well.”

KB Insurance was led by Hwang Taek-ui for seven consecutive seasons. Hwang Seung-bin is also familiar with Hwang’s style: “He has a pretty fast toss. The team colors are also focused on speed. I’ll have to adapt to that. I don’t think it will be too difficult,” he said confidently.

Hwang Seung-bin will continue to wear the number three jersey. Until university, he was assigned the number 2. Korean Air’s No. 2 was Han, so Hwang Seung-bin has worn No. 3 since his professional debut. However, KB Insurance’s number 3 belonged to Shin Seung-hoon. “For me, number 3 is a symbolic and special number. Luckily, Seung-hoon said he would make a concession. He said it was insensitive and he was sorry, but he was grateful. I think I should give him a small gift,” he said with a wry smile.

“First of all, I want to integrate well into the team, I want to play fun and interesting volleyball, and I want to prove my worth,” said Hwang Seung-bin. Hwang Seung-bin’s new challenge has begun.

It’s varsity time again…and captain Park has a lot on her shoulders

It’s national team time again. The task at hand is to restore the pride that was shattered last year.

Led by head coach César Hernández González (Spain), the Korea Women’s National Team is in full training mode in Turkuye, the host city of the FIVB Volleyball Nations League 2023 (VNL) Week 1 tournament. Korea will open the tournament on June 1 (KST) with a first-round match against Turkiye, followed by Canada (June 2), USA (June 3) and Thailand (June 4). The team will then travel to Brazil and Suwon for the second and third weeks of competition.

South Korea suffered an embarrassing 12-game loss at the VNL last year. Kim Yeon-kyung, Kim Soo-ji (Heungkuk Life Insurance), and Yang Hyo-jin (Hyundai E&C), who were part of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games fourth-place finish, returned to the tournament, but it was humiliating to fail to pick up a single point.

Park Jung-ah (Pepper Savings Bank), the captain of this year’s team after last year’s team, will be especially determined. She can’t let her fans down again. Moreover, the atmosphere of the first VNL is of utmost importance this year, as there will be a series of major international competitions such as the Paris 2024 Olympic Qualifiers and the Hangzhou Asian Games.

“This year, I want to come back with a smile on my face,” Park, who showed confidence in a recent public interview at the Jincheon Athletes’ Village, told reporters before departing for Turkuye on the 22nd. “Last year, there were many young players who were new to the international stage. I’m sure they will have grown a little more through last year’s experience.”

안전놀이터 The biggest change from last year is the expansion of the staff. Broadcast commentator Han Yumi was appointed as the varsity coach, and Kim Yeon-kyung is helping the juniors as an advisor. “I’m getting a lot of help,” Park said.

Park has been working tirelessly since last year. Called up to the national team right after the end of the 2021-2022 V-League season, she was voted captain for the first time and had a packed schedule that included the VNL and World Championships. He struggled to rescue the team from its slump, but was unable to prevent the worst losing streak of his career. As a result of his hard work, he contracted shingles at the beginning of the 2022-2023 V-League season and struggled for a while. After slumping in the middle of the season, he proved his worth on the big stage in the playoffs and championship game, leading Korea Express to the top. All that energy took its toll on his body.

After the season, he became a free agent (FA) and took a break to wear a Pepper Savings Bank jersey at the highest level. But less than a month later, he was called up to the national team. “It’s true that there’s a lot of pressure, but it’s unavoidable, so I’m determined to overcome it,” he said.

Fateful Game 7…Tatum “I’ve never been this excited”, Butler “We have to win”

It’s come to this, and now this one game will determine the ultimate winner 먹튀검증.

The Boston Celtics and Miami Heat will meet in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals at 9:30 a.m. ET on March 30.

The series is tied at three games apiece, but the mood is completely in Boston’s favor. They were down 3-0 through three games, but then won three straight from games four through six.

What’s more, the venue for Game 7 is Boston’s home, TD Garden. Boston ace Jayson Tatum said, “I still can’t believe it. I’ve never been so excited to go back to Boston in my life.”

Especially in Game 6, when Derrick White’s buzzer-beating putback miraculously won a game they thought they’d lost. As Jaylen Brown recalled, “White came out like a bolt of lightning and saved the game. It was an unbelievable movie.”

Boston is looking to make history. The Celtics are only the fourth team in NBA history to take a best-of-seven playoff series to Game 7 after losing three straight. However, the previous three teams all lost in Game 7.

Miami, which had made it this far as the No. 8 seed in the East, panicked. From a chance at a sweep to a reverse sweep, the team’s one-two punch of Jimmy Butler and Bam Adebayo faltered badly on offense and gave up the lead.

Butler said, “If I had played better, we wouldn’t have gone to Game 7. It’s totally my fault. I’m going to play well in Game 7. We’re going to win,” he said.

‘We’re going to miss KIM,’ Coach Ten Haag fumed… “Opportunity gone. Must invest aggressively”

In the wake of news that ‘oil money’ Newcastle have entered the race to sign Kim Min-jae (27, Napoli), Manchester United (United) manager Eric ten Hagh (53) has urged the club to “invest”.

“Mourinho insists the club must invest in the summer if they are to compete for trophies next season,” British media outlet 90min reported on Tuesday.

United finished the 2022-2023 English Premier League (EPL) season in third place. That was better than their sixth-place finish the previous season. With their momentum back, United’s goal is to win the league next season.

“The club is moving in the right direction, but we need to bring in players to take it to the next level,” Van Gaal told the media after the EPL final against Fulham on Sept. 29 (a 2-1 United win).

“There has to be a huge investment (in the summer transfer window),” he said, “We still have a long way to go. If you want to compete for trophies, you have to invest. If you don’t, you’ll lose out to other clubs. “If you want to compete for trophies, you have to invest, otherwise you will be behind other clubs.” He emphasized that he wants to invest heavily and win the title next season.

At the center of United’s summer transfer plans is the acquisition of a new number nine. According to 90min, the Red Devils want to sign one of Harry Kane (Tottenham), Victor Osimhen (Napoli), Dusan Blagojevich (Juventus), or Lautaro Martinez (Inter Milan).

In addition, the outlet adds that defender “Kim Min-Jae is also being linked with a move to United.”

Even Van Gaal is urging United’s hierarchy to invest heavily. If the club is passive, they could miss out on players who are on their radar.

Until recently, United were strongly linked with Kim Min-jae. However, amidst the uncertainty of a possible sale, the club is suddenly in danger of losing the lead to ‘oil money’ Newcastle.

The Red Devils will need to solidify their defense next season. With first-choice defender Harry Maguire becoming an “automatic door” due to his sub-par defense, a defensive transplant has become a necessity. The Sun recently reported that United would be willing to pay a buyout to bring in Kim Min-Jae.

However, Newcastle, who are well-funded, are also keen to sign the rare ‘monster’ defender. They are as active as Man United because money is not an obstacle.

After stints in the Korean K League 1, Jeonbuk Hyundai and the Chinese Super League, Kim made the move to Fenerbahçe in 2021.

In just one season with the club, Kim won the Italian Serie A title. He helped the team reach the top. Led by a solid defense, Napoli won the Scudetto for the first time in 33 years, since the 1989-1990 season with the late Diego Maradona.

“Newcastle are reportedly fans of ‘the world’s best center back’ Kim Min-jae,” according to the Newcastle-based newspaper Jordi Boot Voice, which recently reported that Newcastle are keen to trigger his buyout clause. European soccer transfer expert Fabrizio Romano echoed the sentiment, saying that Newcastle are pushing to sign Kim. The situation is far from reassuring for United, who have been leading the race to sign the player 메이저놀이터.

In the meantime, United’s ‘commander-in-chief’, Van Gaal, has been urging the club to ‘invest heavily’.

Why is Ronaldo going to Japan this summer for the first time in eight years? To promote a product he’s endorsing?

Cristiano Ronaldo (38, Al Nasr) will visit Japan.

“Ronaldo has decided to visit Osaka, Japan at the end of July,” Japanese media such as Sports Hochi reported. It will be his first visit to Japan in eight years. Ronaldo will also participate in an event where he will meet 200 fans by lottery 안전놀이터.”

Ronaldo’s reason for traveling to Japan is to promote a product he is modeling. Ronaldo is an ambassador for a Japanese brand of body-worn exercise aids.

“I’m going to Japan for the first time in eight years. I’m going to Japan for the first time in eight years to tell them how great the new product I’m promoting is. I want everyone to experience this belt. I’m looking forward to meeting the Japanese fans.”

Ronaldo is still feeling the wrath of South Korean fans after he did not play in a match during Juventus’ visit in 2019. A group of angry fans filed a lawsuit to return their tickets.

Ronaldo faced South Korea for Portugal at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, but was held scoreless after a lackluster performance. Hwang Hee-chan’s goal in extra time gave South Korea a 2-1 victory over Portugal. Ronaldo has even been mocked for returning the favor with his poor performance against South Korea.
