Kim Seung-gyu departed from Hamad International Airport in Doha, Qatar at 2:05 a.m. on Sunday (Korea time). He had to go on an operating table due to a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee during a team training session on the 18th.

Upon arriving at the airport, he still smiled. In a wheelchair, he crutched his way into the gate. His sister-in-law, brother-in-law, and nephew who were there also boarded a flight to Korea with him. Upon arriving in Korea, he will go to the operating table and concentrate on rehabilitation.

It is full of regrets. This Asian Football Confederation Asian Cup was Kim’s third attempt. At the 2015 Australian Championship, the first competition, he mostly stayed on the bench. At the 2019 United Arab Emirates (UAE), where he leaped to the starting lineup under former national team coach Paulo Bento, he played five games, allowing two runs and playing three clean sheets. This tournament also played the first Group E match against Bahrain on the 15th as a “solid starting member,” but he can no longer play with the team.

His teammates also have a lot of regrets. Lee Jae-sung said, “As a player, I know how fatal injuries are. That’s why I feel even more sad. I also had a lot of regrets that I couldn’t play in the last Asian Cup. This time, I’m upset that Seung-gyu got hurt,” adding, “I’ll do my best to motivate him.”

In particular, Son Heung-min, the “captain” of the team, delivered his condolences in a ceremony after scoring the first goal in the match against Jordan on the 20th. Son has been with Kim since the 2015 Australia Championship. “I am so sad that Seung-gyu is injured. As a team member, I feel very sorry for him.”

“I said goodbye to the players. I saw him off by pushing him all the way through the wheelchair. Heung-min was the spiritual supporter of Seung-gyu,” a KFA official said, expressing regret, “He said he was in really good physical condition for this tournament. I feel if I can win the championship.”

Jo Hyeon-woo (Ulsan HD) was sitting in Kim’s empty seat. He started the game full-time as a starting member in the match against Jordan. With Song Bum-keun as the backup goalkeeper, the KFA on Tuesday convened Kim Joon-hong (Kim Cheon, managing director) as its “training part” to lead the team to the semifinals of the U-20 World Cup.

Meanwhile, the Korean national soccer team led by Jürgen Klinsmann, who is aiming to win the title for the first time in 64 years, ranked second in Group E. It will play a final match against Malaysia on May 25 to confirm its advance to the round of 16.
