He was also the crown prince of Bentu Lake. Hwang In-beom, who played a major role in advancing to the round of 16 at the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar as a midfielder for the Korean national soccer team, was close to the world level in terms of records.
The Qatar World Cup ended with the coronation of Lionel Messi. The month-long journey ended with a lot of stories to tell. The final match between Messi and Kylian Mbappe, which was hot, was also a hot topic, and Morocco’s blast in the semifinals also became an unforgettable record.
On the 19th, global soccer statistics company ‘Opta’ released various data by announcing the World Cup Opta Review Pack. 안전놀이터 In addition to basic information such as players’ shots and shots on target, this data also included detailed information such as the ball carrying distance for each player, the number of chances created, and the pass success rate in the opponent’s half.
There were notable records. It was data that summarized the number of forward passes for all players who participated in this World Cup, and Hwang In-beom’s name was there. Hwang In-beom succeeded in passing forward a total of 24 times in 4 games, including the round of 16, and ranked 9th overall. Portugal’s Bruno Fernandez is one notch below Hwang In-beom, and world-class midfielder Kevin De Bruyne is in 14th place. Fernandez succeeded in the same 24 forward passes as Hwang In-beom, but he was ranked lower than Hwang In-beom in the rankings as he played in the quarterfinals and played a total of 5 games.
I nod my head when I think of the play Bentuho showed in this World Cup. Hwang In-beom was called the crown prince of Bentuho and served as a lubricant for the national team’s midfield. He fully demonstrated his ability to escape pressure through individual skills against world-class players, and energized the attack with bold passes. In particular, there were many threatening scenes with passes aimed at forward Son Heung-min and Cho Kyu-seong. One of the reasons Bentoho was able to fight shoulder to shoulder with world champions in this tournament is that Hwang In-beom firmly protected the team’s back in both offense and defense.
This kind of performance also became the target of the opposing team’s vigilance. Brazilian captain Thiago Silva said at a press conference ahead of the round of 16 match against Korea, “Player 6 is fast and impressive in passing.” It is proof that Hwang In-beom’s quick and bold pass was seen as a weapon worthy of vigilance even in the eyes of a veteran Brazilian defender who has gone through all sorts of battles.
Meanwhile, after taking a short break in Korea after the World Cup, Hwang In-beom departed for Greece, where his team Olympiacos is located, via Incheon Airport on the 16th.
