The South Korean national soccer team, led by interim coach Kim Do-hoon, will play its sixth Group C match against China at the Seoul World Cup Stadium at 8 p.m. on Tuesday. Two days before the match, Hwang In-beom (Zvezda) praised Bae Joon-ho ahead of a training session at Goyang Stadium.

Hwang In-beom expressed his expectation toward Bae Joon-ho, saying, “As a soccer player, I have much better abilities and capabilities than myself,” adding, “I’m still young, and I’m a player who will grow several times more than now.”

Bae Jun-ho, born in 2003, made his professional debut in 2022 with Hana Citizen in Daejeon, which was then a member of K League 2. He showed his potential by scoring one goal in eight league games in his first season.

In 2023, he showed further development and displayed stellar performance on any stage. At the FIFA U-20 World Cup, which ended in June last year, he led Kim Eun-joong’s advance to the semifinals. He also scored two goals in 17 matches in the K-League 1, which he played with Daejeon, and achieved his dream by moving to Stoke in the English Championship (second division league) in August that year.

It was his first season in Europe, but he scored two goals and five assists in 38 games, helping his team escape the relegation zone. In recognition of his performance, he was named the club’s player of the year by fans and even earned the nickname the “King of Stokes.”

Kim selected Bae ahead of the A-match this June. “I dribble aggressively,” Kim said of Bae, “I expect him to show a very good performance in the soccer that I want to play.”

Lee Jae-sung (Mainz) also praised Bae Joon-ho, saying, “It’s already beyond me considering my age,” adding, “I hope we share and learn what we need.”

Bae Joon-ho proved his value. In the last match against Singapore, he made his A-match debut as a substitute in the 25th minute of the second half. He then scored his debut goal by changing the direction of Park Seung-wook’s cross in the 34th minute of the second half.

After the game, head coach Kim applauded, saying, “After training together, I judged him to be a player with great potential, and I’m looking forward to the future,” adding, “I think the part that keeps moving without letting go of the ball signals to fans that a new type of player has appeared.”
