By Hounche Chung with Korea Republic
Korea Republic manager Shin Taeyong has lifted utterly a few eyebrows with initial formations and astonishing call-ups in a array of friendlies in a rave to a finals. So it was not formidable to expect that there would be another component of warn when he submitted a starting choice for a Group F opener opposite Sweden.
However, Jo Hyeonwoo’s inclusion in a starting XI came as a bigger startle than a fact that manager Shin opted for an attack-minded formation. In fact, a 26-year-old had usually warranted 6 caps before drifting to Russia. And as his pack No23 suggests, he is a third-choice goalkeeper, a position that frequency gets a possibility to play in a vital tournament.
“I didn’t realize we was going to start until a manager told me only before a game,” Jo told FIFA. “But we wasn’t unequivocally surprised, since all a goalkeepers, including myself, are always prepared to play whoever gets a possibility to. It was illusory to paint my nation on a universe stage, though I’m contemptible that a diversion has finished this way.”
