“If you are confident, your attack points will follow”

National team goalkeeper Na Sang-ho (27-Seoul) is determined to show the confidence he gained in professional soccer’s K League 1 in the two June A matches against Peru and El Salvador.

“Coach Jürgen Klinsmann likes me to be aggressive,” Nasangho told reporters before the national team’s training session at Gudeok Sports Complex in Busan on Thursday. It’s my personal goal to be good at penetrating space and breaking through one-on-one,” he said.

Nasang-ho’s goal-hunting ambitions in the highly competitive national flanking line are backed up by his ‘career-high’ K League 1 performance. He recorded six assists in September 2021 (34 games) and four assists in 2022 (32 games), and this year he has already poured in eight goals and two assists in 18 games. At this rate, he’s on pace to win the K League 1 Most Valuable Player (MVP) award.

“If you have confidence, attacking points will follow,” he says confidently.

Na Sang-ho is determined to use his weapons, his excellent speed and dribbling breakthroughs, to attack Peru in the exhibition match on the 16th.

“I’m always ready,” he said. My goal is to become more competitive with challenging thoughts in the national team,” he said. “The confidence I gained after playing the World Cup in Qatar last year has followed me to the K League 1 and is leading to my attacking points.”

Na is also looking forward to synergizing with fellow national team goalkeeper Hwang Eui-jo, who plays for FC Seoul.안전놀이터

“I’ve played well with my brother Hwang Ui-jo in the K League 1, so I want to show something similar in the national team, and we’ll show the chemistry we’ve been working on for the past six months,” he said.

Striker Cho Kyu-sung (25, North Korea), who also participated in the interview, said, “I’ve been in great form lately. If I get a chance to play, I want to score goals.” “I want to move abroad this summer and I’m preparing for it,” Cho said, adding, “I don’t think there are any offers yet. If I prepare myself step by step, I’m sure a good opportunity will come.”
