Participated in 300 A-matches in 21 years. Lee 토토사이트Nam-yong (40, Seongnam City Hall), the infamous field hockey national team player, laughed and said, “I must be crazy about hockey.” At the same time, he lowered his body, saying, “Still, I only know 70% of hockey.”
In an interview held on the 2nd at the Seongnam Hockey Stadium in Gyeonggi Province, Lee Nam-yong recalled the FIH World Cup held in India last month and his 20-year career as a national team member.
On the 25th of last month, Lee Nam-yong played against the Netherlands in the quarterfinals of the International Hockey Federation (FIH) World Cup. It was his 300th game (45 goals) in his career. It has been 21 years since his A-match debut in September 2002. Lee Nam-yong said, “I lived crazy about hockey, which I happened to encounter in middle school.
Lee Nam-yong laid a decisive foothold in winning the penalty shootout with a 5-5 equalizer right before the end of the round of 16 against Argentina (ranked 7th in the world). Lee Nam-yong said, “Thanks to our solidarity and not giving up, we defeated the Olympic champion.” It was the first quarterfinal in 13 years since the 2010 World Cup. As Korea, which has poor infrastructure and lacks players, it maintained its pride as the best in Asia. Korea is the only Asian country in the quarterfinals this time.
Lee Nam-yong even wore the captain’s armband as the oldest player in this World Cup. Lee Nam-yong said, “My management is not easy at this age, but I sometimes had to say something I didn’t like while taking care of my juniors.” Lee Nam-yong, of course, took the lead. Lee Nam-yong said, “Training that is stronger than actual combat and meticulous self-management are in my body,” and “I still maintain my weight and body fat when I was young.”
