He only played one more A-match, but in that short period Oh Hyeon-gyu (22, Celtic) achieved rapid growth.

On the 24th, Oh Hyun-gyu was put in as a substitute in the second half of the game against Colombia held at Ulsan Munsu Soccer Stadium, increasing his A-match record to 2 matches. Last year, right before the World Cup in Qatar, he made his thrilling debut with the A national team in an evaluation match against Iceland in Hwaseong. The match was tied 2-2. Ace and “captain” Son Heung-min (31, Tottenham) scored multiple goals. Oh Hyun-gyu ran for 30 minutes. At the end of the second half, he had a decisive goal opportunity and fired a shot, but the opposing defender cleared the ball in front of the goal, swallowing regret.

Oh Hyun-gyu was안전놀이터 different. He has become more confident in his play. For good reason. He only added 1 A match, but in the meantime, a lot of things happened to Oh Hyeon-gyu. His team changed from Suwon Samsung in the professional soccer K League 1 to Celtic (Scotland), and he gained valuable experience by playing as a reserve member in the Qatar World Cup. Using this as a stepping stone, he proudly put his name on the ‘1st Klins Manho’ and announced that he had grown one step further.

Oh Hyun-gyu said, “I made my A-match debut in Hwaseong and played a national team game after a long time. I was happy to be able to play in front of many Korean fans. Thank you for sending me as much support as Celtic.”

When he was a reserve member for the World Cup, Oh Hyun-kyu was strongly motivated. He set a goal to play alongside his national team brothers on the pitch. Oh Hyun-kyu expressed his pride, saying, “I watched the World Cup game from outside the stadium, but I imagined playing with my brothers. It is an honor just to play together. . It won’t happen if you put your mind to it. It was possible because of constant sweat. Oh Hyun-kyu looked back, saying, “During that period, I tried not to waste time. I tried to maximize what I could do well.”

In addition, Oh Hyun-gyu said, “It is a pleasure to come to the national team and receive a uniform number. I want to keep the uniform.” In the game against Colombia, Oh Hyun-gyu played an active role wearing the number 26 shirt.

As much as the Qatar World Cup, the transfer to Celtic was a big turning point for Oh. Oh Hyun-gyu, who made his way to Europe through the transfer market last winter, quickly adapts to the team and is active as a clear offensive option. He grew rapidly as he gradually increased his playing time. It is a part that he himself feels. He has already scored his 2nd goal in the league and his 3rd goal in the season. Oh Hyun-kyu drew attention by scoring a fantastic diving header goal in a league match against Hibernian on the 19th, just before the national team was called up.

Oh Hyun-kyu said, “I think I’ve become more confident after playing in Europe. European defenders are physically strong, but I don’t avoid them and bump into them. I feel that I’ve become stronger in that. Compared to Oh Hyun-kyu in Suwon Samsung (previously debuting in A match), Oh Hyun-kyu said. I think Celtic Oh Hyun-gyu has become stronger,” he said confidently.

He emphasized, “The Scottish League defenders are strong. Celtic is a strong team in the league, but the opposing team gives 120% to catch us. We have to do more than that. I am doing my best.”

Oh Hyeon-gyu is also gaining a lot from the Korean national team. In particular, he is learning various experiences and know-how under coach Jurgen Klinsmann (59), a former world-class striker. Oh Hyeon-gyu explained, “The striker is asked to do something selfish in a good way. I want to do what I can do well.”

Now, the focus shifted to the friendly match against Uruguay to be held in Seoul on the 28th. Oh Hyun-kyu said, “If I am given a chance, I will pour out 120%. I will try to show a better appearance in the next game.”
