Defender Jang Hyeon-soo (32), who played for the Korean national soccer team, will face Real Madrid in the final of the FIFA Club World Cup.
Saudi Arabia’s Al-Hilal, to which Jang Hyun-soo belongs, defeated the South American champion Flamengo (Brazil) 3-2 in the semi-final held in Morocco on the 8th and advanced to the final. Spain’s Real Madrid beat Al-Ahli (Egypt) 4-1 in the semifinals held on the 9th.
Al-Hilal and Real Madrid face off on the 12th in Morocco over the Club World Cup trophy.
Jang Hyun-soo won a gold medal at the 2014 Incheon Asian Games and became eligible for special military service. He also played as a defender for the national team at the 2018 World Cup in Russia. He was also a strong player in the national team in Bentoho, but at the end of 2018, it was revealed that he had manipulated the documentary evidence of volunteer activities to be completed as an artistic sports agent, and his national team qualification was permanently disqualified. 안전놀이터
Jang Hyun-soo was excluded from the national team and moved to Al-Hilal in the Saudi League in 2019, leaving the attention of domestic fans. He participated in the match between Paris Saint-Germain and Al-Nassr-Al-Hilal joint team held last month and stepped on the ground with Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, and soon contributed to the team’s advancement to the Club World Cup final.
Al-Hilal is the third Asian Football Confederation (AFC) club in history and the first Saudi team to reach the final of the Club World Cup. Reuters reported that Al-Hilal players received a bonus of about 500 million won. The Al-Hilal players will receive an additional bonus if they beat Real Madrid to win the title.
