Hangzhou Asian Games soccer gold medalist Ahn Jae-jun (Bucheon FC) put his team on the stage for promotion to the first division. Attention is being paid to whether he can become the protagonist of a dramatic promotion drama.

Bucheon, with Ahn Jae-jun as a starter, won 4-1 against Jeonnam Dragons in the 39th round home game of 'Hana One Q K League 2 2023' held at Bucheon Stadium on the 26th.

With this win, Bucheon, who recorded 57 points from 16 wins, 9 draws, and 11 losses, overtook 6th place FC Anyang (54 points) and secured 5th place and advanced to the K League 2 semi-playoffs.

Bucheon can only be promoted to the first division by winning the semi-playoff against Gyeongnam FC, ranked 4th in the league, and defeating Gimpo FC, which is ranked 3rd, and then defeating the top 10 teams in the 1st division in the final stage, the 'promotion play-off'.

It's a thorny road, but there is hope. This is because 22-year-old rookie striker Ahn Jae-jun showed off his good condition by scoring a hat trick in the final match against Jeonnam.

He led the team to victory by scoring three goals in the 15th minute of the second half of the game when the score was 1-1. He sent Bucheon fans into a frenzy by hitting the net in the 15th and 32nd minutes of the second half, and in the 8th minute of extra time. In counterattack situations, he showed off his ability to overwhelm the opposing defenders and succeeded in scoring repeatedly.

He debuted as a professional in Bucheon in 2021 and is growing rapidly. After appearing in 19 games in his first year but not scoring a goal, he improved his form by scoring 4 goals in 24 games last year and recording 11 goals and 4 assists in 22 games this year.

He also helped win the gold medal at the Hangzhou Asian Games. He was selected for the Asian Games national team led by coach Hwang Seon-hong and played in all matches, scoring one goal each against Kuwait and Thailand in the group stage.

There is a high possibility that he will also be selected for the Paris Olympic team next year. He also participated in an evaluation match (3-0 win) against the French under-21 national team held in France on the 21st.

He expressed his will to be promoted to the first division. In an interview published in the November issue of the Korea Football Association (KFA) Technical Report & Magazine ONSIDE, he said, “If we play well in the remaining league games and advance to the playoffs, I think we will be able to finish with better results than last year,” and “The goal is promotion.” “However, it is still in the process, so if I overcome the situation in front of me well, I think I will be where I want to be.”

There is also the intention to challenge the European stage after leading the team to promotion. He said, “I have a dream to further prove myself on a big stage like Europe. “I also want to go to the national team A,” he said. “I think challenge is important in the end.” “I will show you that I am a player who will not settle for the present and will continue to strive and challenge myself to reach higher heights,” he said. 카지노사이트
