Kim Eun-joong finished the tournament in 4th place after losing 1-3 in the 2023 U-20 World Cup 3rd place match against Israel held at La Plata Stadium in Argentina on the 12th (Korean time).

Captain Lee Seung-won (Gangwon), who recorded 7 attack points with 3 goals and 4 assists, surpassed Lee Kang-in (Mallorca, 2 goals, 4 assists), the best player in the tournament four years ago. Lee Young-jun (Gimcheon), Bae Jun-ho (Daejeon), Kim Yong-hak (Portimonense), Choi Seok-hyeon (Dankook University), Kim Ji-soo (Seongnam), and Kim Jun-hong (Gimcheon) each left a strong impression through their roles.

Coach Kim predicted that these players would lead Korean soccer. In an interview with FIFA+ after the match, he expressed his anticipation, “I hope he will continue to play a role in the future of Korean football.”

Most of the players will return to the stage of the professional soccer K-League. Bae Jun-ho, who plays for Daejeon Hana Citizen, is expected to return to the team and play in the first division. Lee Young-jun, FC Seoul Kang Seong-jin, Jeonbuk Hyundai Park Chang-woo and Kang Sang-yoon, K-League 2 Seongnam FC Kim Ji-su and Gyeongnam FC Lee Chan-wook are also expected to be given opportunities to play right after returning to Korea.

In addition to these players, there is a possibility that other players will be given a chance to participate in the K-League game in a flash to celebrate the achievements of the U-20 World Cup. It is expected that he will be able to get more opportunities to participate in the K-League only when he shows impressive performance in this match.

The Asian Games in Hangzhou in September and the Paris Olympics in July next year are competitions that Kim Eun-joong can stare at. The key is whether Lee Seung-won, Bae Jun-ho, Lee Young-joon, Kim Ji-soo, etc. can catch the attention of director Hwang Seon-hong.

There is also the possibility of boarding the Klinsmann. Coach Jurgen Klinsmann showed interest in the under-20 national team from the time he took over as Korea A national team coach.

Coach Klinsman also mentioned the achievements of Kim Eun-joong on the day of the A match in June and said, “We need to give players opportunities to play and grow them.” During the A-match period in September, Kim Eun-joong will be unexpectedly selected for Klinsman, and he may go to the Qatar Asian Cup in January next year.

As Kim Eun-joong drew the world’s attention by advancing to the semifinals, the door to advance to the overseas stage could be opened. While Kim Yong-hak and Lee Ji-han (Freiburg) are already playing in Europe, several players, including Kim Ji-soo, who is considered the second Kim Min-jae, can advance to European clubs.

Kim Eun-joong, who finished the competition, is scheduled to enter Korea through Incheon International Airport on the 14th. Kim Eun-joong is expected to share the joy of advancing to the semifinals with Korean soccer fans through his celebratory event.
