"The WK League is not well known. Still, there are many WK League players on the team, but I want to show that I can do well on the world stage."
Women's business soccer WK League also held an awards ceremony late last year.
It is the first year-end awards ceremony of the WK League, which was launched in 2009.
In the meantime, female players watched with envy as male players were recognized for their performance and contributions during the season through the K-League awards ceremony.
Choi Yu-ri (Incheon Hyundai Steel), who scored 10 goals in the 2022 season, stood tall as the “best striker” at the long-awaited first awards ceremony.
Yuri Choi (Incheon Hyundai Steel), who received the 'Attack of the Year Award', was called by coach Colin Bell and succeeded in stepping into Australia, where the 2023 FIFA Women's World Cup will be held.
Choi Yuri, who met with reporters at the Campbelltown Sports Stadium on the outskirts of Sydney, New South Wales, Australia on the 23rd, said that she was keeping an eye on the movements of strikers representing each country.
Choi Yu-ri said, "When I see this kind of movement, I think 'I wish I could do it next time'.
“There are a lot of really good players. The moves of the players who show their ability to score are memorable."
Among the 23 players selected by manager Bell, the number of strikers is the highest.
There are 9 players.
From Park Eun-seon (Seoul City Hall), a veteran who has already participated in the first World Cup for 20 years, to Casey Eugene Fair (PDA), the youngest among 736 players in 32 teams participating in this tournament.
In addition, Ji So-yeon (Suwon FC), Lee Geum-min (Brighton), and Jang Seul-gi (Incheon Hyundai Steel) are also players who can show a sharp appearance from the front.
It is said that he was recognized as the best striker in the WK League, but competition in the national team is inevitable.
Choi Yu-ri said, "When I started convocation training at the Paju National Team Training Center (NFC), there were many players including young players. At that time, I felt the fierceness of the competition more." "There are many competitive players.
To those players , I am learning," he said.
In response to the question of which player she was inspired by, Choi Yu-ri laughed and said, "You can't learn from (Park) Eun-seon's heading. he replied.
She added, "We're focusing on things like dribbling, shooting, and ability to produce offensive points. We talk a lot with each other."
Yuri Choi's strength is her vigorous activity in the front.
When he turns the ball against the opponent's defender, he does not give up and pursues until the end, which stands out.
Yuri Choi said, "In coach Colin Bell's 'high-intensity soccer', you have to do a lot of sprinting and high-intensity running." Yuri Choi said,
"I will press Colombia to the end.
At the same time, I will try to overcome the opponent's pressure and even score points." It is the same for the entire Bellho that burns fighting spirit.
Choo Hyo-joo (Suwon FC), who is the fastest among the defenses and is used by Bell in various positions, expressed her determination to block the opponent's ace.
The most notable player in Colombia is Linda Caicedo (Real Madrid), a new striker born in 2005.
Hyo-joo Choo played as a defensive midfielder in the second half of the evaluation match against Haiti on the 8th and defended Mondesir Nerilia (Montpellier), who scored the opening goal.
Caicedo is known as a player who enjoys quick, reckless breakthroughs.
Depending on the game, there is a possibility that Hyo-Joo Choo will play the full defense again this time.
When asked if there was anything he wanted to say to Kaise-do, Hyo-joo Choo showed confidence, saying, "I will tell you, 'We are preparing well, so do what you are good at.'"
