they had a bloody overtime battle with Korea in the quarterfinals (Korea won 4-3),
drew 1-1 in the Olympic team evaluation match held in Hwaseong in September of last year.
Even within the formidable Uzbekistan team, the ‘number 10’ that Ko Young-Jun mentioned as a player to watch out for is the attacking midfielder Jalolidinov, born in 2002.
Dzhalolidinov, who plays for Uzbekistan’s Lokomotiv Tashkent,
is an attacking midfielder who also has experience playing on the Russian stage.
In this tournament, he scored the winning goal to make it 2-1 in the second group match against Hong Kong.
Ko Young-jun participated as a member of the Olympic team in last year’s Hwaseong warm-up match and faced Zalolidinov, who was also a starter for Uzbekistan.
Coincidentally, at the time, two players played wearing number 10 for both teams.
Ko Young-jun explained, “Zalolidinov was the team’s ace and seemed to be playing a pivotal role.”
Ko Young-Jun, who scored one goal in the third group match against Bahrain and contributed to the victory by appearing as a starter in the quarterfinals against China,
is looking forward to showing his performance in the remaining two games.
He emphasized, “Uzbekistan feels like an active and strong team in evaluation matches and this tournament.
