Look at me when “Last Call” rings! Jung Jae-hee, Pohang as the man of extra time!


The Pohang Steelers have been on the rise in the early stages. Led by Coach Park Tae-ha, Pohang is leading the league with four wins, one draw and one loss, and 13 points at the “Hana Bank K League 1 2024” that has finished its sixth round. Although the ranking is meaningless at this point, the “steel squad” is quite impressive as it has undergone significant changes and bleeding from the head coach to the team.
Pohang soccer is attractive because, above all, it is difficult to estimate the result until just before the end of the game. We can’t take our eyes off it until the extra time. Pohang scored nine points and four goals in six games, four of which came after 46 minutes in the second half. It scored only one goal in the first half and four goals in the regular time (1 to 45 minutes) of the second half. In response, soccer fans are applauding Pohang’s surprising moves by adding an interesting formula called “Taeha-drama.”

Everyone on the ground is shining, but it is Jung Jae-hee (30) who stands out. After skipping two games immediately after the opening due to injury, he is leading Pohang’s high flight by scoring three goals and one assist in four games.

Surprisingly, Jung Jae-hee’s “Showtime” as a wing-forward is extra time in the second half. On March 17, his first home game after returning from injury, he scored the final goal in the 48th minute in the second half of the game against Gwangju FC, and scored the first goal in the 47th minute in the second half in an away game against Jeju United (2-0 win) on March 30, after the break of the A match. He then scored a dramatic come-from-behind final shot in the 47th minute in the second half, when the score was 1-1 at an away game against Daejeon Hana Citizen on March 7. Another interesting fact is that he gave assist to Auberdan’s first goal right before the end of the first half at a home game (1-1 draw) against Suwon FC on Sunday. In other words, Jung’s instinct to attack flashed once the clock was past 45 minutes.

“We are not a strong team. We are still building teams. We were just lucky,” Park said after the match, but he showed no compliments to the players. “Jae-hee (Jung) has consistently scored valuable finishing goals for the team. Thank you very much. We are getting scores that we can look forward to until the end of the match,” Park said.
Of course, Jung Jae-hee is excited about the continued number of “theater goals.” Having played for FC Anyang (2016-2018) and Jeonnam Dragons (2019-2020), Jung is enjoying the most outstanding season in his professional career in 2022. If he continues his current pace, he will be able to surpass the 2022 season, when he recorded 10 offensive points (7 goals, 3 assists).

However, Jeong said, “I’m smelling more goals these days, so I won’t be greedy. I’m not fully in condition, and I need to take care of myself. It’s enough to play my part in every game humbly without getting injured.” 업소알바

The next match between Pohang and Chung Jae-hee will be FC Seoul led by coach Kim Ki-dong, who led Pohang until last year. I am already curious about the result of the Seoul-Pohang match at the Seoul World Cup Stadium on the 13th.
