After pulling on the national team’s jersey for the first time at the Women’s World Cup, forward Chun Ga-ram (21-Hwacheon KSPO) has vowed to win gold at the 온라인카지노 Hangzhou Asian Games.
“It’s been a year since I was first called up to the national team and stood in this position,” Chun said on Friday morning at the National Training Center (NFC) in Paju before the first training session for the women’s team at the Hangzhou Asian Games. “I’ve learned from being called up consistently, and I’ve experienced growing pains from the World Cup and other events, and I want to make sure I don’t waste that time and grow further.”
At the FIFA Women’s World Cup Australia-New Zealand in July and August, she was one of the “young bloods” of the national team, along with 2000-born Chu Hyo-joo (Suwon FC) and 2007-born mixed-race player Casey Eugene Fair (PDA). She made her first start in the final group game against Germany (1-1 draw) and impressed.
Last year, she garnered attention for her outstanding performance at the U-20 World Cup and was selected by KSPO with the first pick in the WK League Women’s Rookie Draft.
“Even though I’m young, I wanted to show good form and help women’s soccer,” Chun said. “I also wanted to give courage to players who are younger than me.”
“At the World Cup, I realized that I had to give it my all to win. I tried my best, but I wasn’t good enough, and I’ll make up for it in the future.”
Having watched the entire Women’s World Cup, which ended with Spain’s victory, Chun said, “I was envious and thought they were amazing. There were a lot of young players like me, so I learned a lot from them.”
“I don’t know what the future holds, but if I were to go out again, I don’t want to go through the pain I went through this time,” she said, emphasizing that she wants to be a player who feels the responsibility of representing her country and continues to grow.
Finally, on his goals for the Hangzhou Asian Games, he said, “Gold. I also want to score the final goal in the final as a striker.”
Meanwhile, the Korean women’s soccer team is in Group E at the Asian Games, facing Myanmar, the Philippines, and Hong Kong.
