Is the old museum famous?... Jo Gyu-seong, Asian Cup, recent poor performance of his team, desperate for the ‘eldest’ child?... Joo Min-gyu aims for debut goal before debuting in A match: “I will put my head down and run”


Who will be in charge of the front line of the Korean national soccer team, where former goal scorer Hwang Sun-hong is temporarily taking charge?


Korea will play the third round of the 2026 North and Central America World Cup Asian region second qualifying round against Thailand at Seoul World Cup Stadium at 8 p.m. on the 21st.


One of the positions in this national team that attracts the attention of soccer fans is the frontline striker. 카지노사이트


Given that coach Hwang Seon-hong of the U-23 national team, who is temporarily leading the A national team, was a leading striker for the national team during his active career, attention is focused on which player he will bring to the forefront in the two-game series against Thailand this month.


From the looks of it, it appears that 'late national team member' Ju Min-gyu (Ulsan) is challenging the stronghold of Cho Kyu-sung (Midtjylland), who has established himself as a top striker since the 2022 Qatar World Cup.


Cho Gyu-seong entered the Danish league this season and is scoring 10 league goals.


However, his recent performance is not very good.


After the opening, he scored in the first three consecutive games and was praised as 'Cho Kyu-sung, as expected', but his momentum seems to have waned since the start of the second half of the Asian Cup and league.


Cho Gyu-seong returned to his team after the Asian Cup and only scored one goal, missing penalty kicks twice, and the scorer he scored for the first time in a long time before joining the team was a penalty kick.


His performance in the Asian Cup was also evaluated as disappointing compared to his high expectations.


In the Asian Cup, Cho Gyu-seong played over 60 minutes on average in a total of 6 games, including 3 group matches and 3 matches in the round of 16, quarterfinals, and semifinals, playing as a starter in 4 games and as a substitute in 2 games.


However, his first and last Asian Cup goal was a header goal scored just before the end of the game in the round of 16 against Saudi Arabia.


The reason why the national team was criticized for its performance and scoring ability throughout the Asian Cup period was because it did not score as many goals as expected due to a lack of goal-making power.


Coach Hwang Seon-hong needs to show a ‘changed national team’ by achieving a huge and complete victory against Thailand, a powerhouse in Southeast Asia.


It is not a bad choice to place Joo Min-gyu at the top in order to revamp the atmosphere of the national team, which has been criticized for its poor performance.


Also, Joo Min-gyu's desire to play in the A match may be stronger than anyone else's.


Ju Min-gyu, who had never played for the national team for his age group, wore the Taegeuk flag for the first time in his life at the age of 33.


Joo Min-gyu, born in 1990, is the oldest member of the national team along with Kim Young-kwon, but is the eldest member of the national team (eldest + youngest) in that he has no national team experience.


There is no disagreement about Joo Min-gyu’s goal-scoring ability.


Joo Min-gyu is the best goalscorer in K-League 1, scoring 56 goals over the past three seasons.


During that time, he was the top scorer twice.


In the 2022 season, he was tied with Cho Gyu-seong (Jeonbuk at the time) with 17 goals, but unfortunately fell behind in playing time and only came in second place.


At the press conference announcing the national team roster, Coach Hwang Sun-hong expressed his expectations for Joo Min-gyu, saying, "No player has scored more than 50 goals in the K-League over the past three years.


There is no need for further explanation."


Joo Min-gyu, the eldest member of the team, who had been continuously neglected by the national team coaches Paulo Bento and Jurgen Klinsmann, pledged to show off his fiercest toes than anyone else in the A match, saying, "I will think of myself as the youngest and play with my head down."


When Joo Min-gyu plays against Thailand on the 21st, he will also set the record for the oldest A-match debut ever (33 years, 343 days).


Ju Min-gyu, who made the miracle of the Taegeuk mark a reality, now plans to hit the ground with the goal of scoring a debut goal in his A-match debut.
