National football team players who play in European leagues went back to their respective teams. The team arrived in Korea on December 7 after the group exited the World Cup in the round of 16.
Jeong Woo-yeong, Jung Woo-young, and Kim Seung-gyu went straight to their clubs. On the other hand, the rest of the Taeguk Warriors returned to Korea. According to National Football Team betting fans, President Yoon Suk-yeol invited coach Paulo Bento and the team to a banquet on December 8. It is a celebratory banquet for reaching the round of 16.
Hwang Hee-chan spent less than a week in Korea before he flew to Spain, where the Wolverhampton Wanderers are playing. Also, he missed two group-stage matches due to hamstring issues. However, during the last group-stage match, he scored the winning goal against Portugal.
National Football Team Players after World Cup
Hwang scored in injury time to earn him the Player of the Match award. The late goal was not only a personal achievement for Hwang but also good news for Wolverhampton. According to sports betting odds experts, Hwang became the first Wolves to score in a World Cup match since Ron Flowers in 1962.
People who bet on football celebrated Hwang’s first-ever World cup goal. He joined the team in November after a challenging year with the Wolves. Also, he has struggled to score in the Premier League since February 24.
A year before the start of the World Cup, Hwang was not part of the roster. Also, he was not part of the bench in the Wolves’ defeat against Arsenal last November 12. However, his season could have a different ending if he regains his form in the Premier League.
