Why Bae Jun-ho (21), who was called up to the national soccer team, returned early

There was a reason why his team Stoke City (England) returned Bae Joon-ho (21), who was called up to the U-23 national soccer team, early. Bae Joon-ho took the lead in winning the team by accumulating important assists from the first game of the league, which resumed after the A-match break.

Bae Joon-ho was substituted in an away game against Hull City in the 39th round of the 2023-24 English Championship (part 2) held at MKM Stadium in Kingston upon Hull, England on the 30th (Korea time), and recorded the team’s decisive goal assist at the end of the game. It was his fourth assist and sixth point of attack (two goals, four assists) in this season’s league.

He directly proved why he wanted to return early.

Bae was deployed to the ground in lieu of Saad Haxavanovic at 26th minute in the second half when his team was leading 1-0. Three minutes into extra time in the second half, he caught the ball in front of the arc, beat the opponent team’s defenders with superb individual skills, and handed the pass to Kiyana Huber, who was empty on the right side. Huber connected Bae’s pass with a right-footed non-stop shot to cool down the opponent’s net. It was a joint goal that sealed the victory.

Earlier, Bae Joon-ho was first selected for the U-23 national team, which is preparing for the final qualifying round for the 2024 Paris Olympics during the last A match, but returned early at the request of his team ahead of the 2024 Western Asian Football Confederation (WAFF) U-23 Championship final. It is unusual for a player who is called up to the national team to return early at the request of his team, and on the same day, Bae Joon-ho recorded an important assist from the first game of his return, proving directly why his team wanted his early return.

The highest rating of any talk city player

In addition to this assist, Bae displayed his presence despite his limited playing time by not only playing offensive roles, including 100 percent success rate (nine times), creating chances twice, and crossing once, but also strengthening his skills defensively, including two successful tackles (67 percent success rate) and three wins (43 percent) against the ground ball. As a substitute in the 26th minute of the second half, he also received a seven-point rating. This is the highest rating among 토토사이트 players who replaced him on the day.

Stoke City, which added Josh Lowrant’s first goal and Bae Jun-ho and Huber’s joint goals, recorded 44 points (12-8 draws and 19 losses), elevating its ranking to 17th out of 24 teams. Once falling into the relegation zone, the team now has a chance to advance to the mid-ranking position. The gap with Huddersfield is five points shorter. If the team continues its recent three wins and two losses, it is expected that it will be able to achieve Stoke City’s goal to remain in the club for this season. Of course, Bae Jun-ho is at the center of the gap.

He is playing the role of Bae Jun-ho’s ace.

After leading Korea to the semifinals at the 2023 FIFA U-23 World Cup, Bae Jun-ho left Daejeon Hana Citizen to advance to the European stage amid Stoke City’s strong love call.
