‘I’m rooting for Stuttgart, too’…Jung Woo-young AG’s hat-trick in first leg → Spotlight on German kicker

Jung Woo-young scored a hat trick to lead South Korea to a dominant win in their first match at the Asian Games.

South Korea cruised to a 9-0 victory over Kuwait in their first men’s football Group E match of the Hangzhou 2022 Asian Games at the Jinhua Sports Center Stadium in Jinhua, China, on Monday (Sept. 19). Jung Woo-young scored a hat trick, Cho Young-wook recorded a multi-goal performance, and Baek Seung-ho, Uhm Won-sang, Park Jae-yong, and Ahn Jae-joon scored relay goals as South Korea cruised to its first win at the Asian Games.

German media outlet Kicker highlighted Jung Woo-young’s performance in the first game of the Asian Games on Tuesday. ‘Jung Woo-young had a breakthrough start to the tournament for South Korea,’ Kicker wrote. Stuttgart is without him. Nowadays, people in Stuttgart are looking forward to the Asian Games in China. Jung hopes to win a gold medal with the Korean national team and receive military service benefits. “In South Korea, you can only receive military benefits if you have made a special contribution to the country,” said Jung Woo-young, who started the Asian Games with a bang. South Korea won 9-0 against Kuwait, and he was a big part of that. If South Korea advances to the final, Jung will miss Stuttgart’s game until early October. He noted that it’s a “bearable absence considering the possibility of military service.

As the number of Korean players playing in Europe increases, so does the interest of European clubs in the issue of Korean players’ military service. In July, Kicker reported, “Jung Woo-young’s transfer fee is 2.8 million euros (about 4 billion won). If he receives military service benefits, the transfer fee will rise to €4 million ($5.7 billion). If Jung is forced to serve in the military, he will have to leave Stuttgart without fulfilling his contract. It was also reported that the transfer talks between Stuttgart and Freiburg had been delayed due to Jung’s military service. The German Bundesliga player moved from Freiburg to Stuttgart ahead of the season, with the clubs reportedly disagreeing on a transfer fee depending on whether or not Jung Woo-young would benefit from military service.

Jeong impressed in South Korea’s first match of the Asian Games against Kuwait. He opened the scoring in the third minute with a right-footed shot after breaking down the left side of the penalty area. He then made it a two-goal game in the 45th minute with a calm right-footed strike after penetrating the left side of the penalty area. Jung completed his hat-trick in the third minute of the second half, finishing in front of goal after Cho Young-wook’s shot was saved by the opposing goalkeeper. 먹튀검증

South Korea, who are looking to win their third consecutive men’s soccer title at the Asian Games, will play Thailand in their second match of the tournament on Nov. 21 after a convincing win over Kuwait in their first match of the tournament. Paris Saint-Germain’s (PSG) Lee Kang-in, who has been named to the Asian Games squad, made his return from injury after a month’s absence when he came on as a substitute in the first leg of the 2023-24 UEFA Champions League Group F against Dortmund on Tuesday. After the match, Lee is expected to return to action as he joins the Asian Games squad.
