World Cup Surprise Star Cho Kyu-sung Fell into Best 11
Cho Kyu-sung (South Korea) was not a surprise star for the 2022 FIFA Qatar World Cup.
Britain’s “HITC” unveiled the Qatar World Cup surprise star Best Eleven on the 5th (Korea Standard Time). The formation was 5-4-1. Andreas Norfert (the Netherlands) was the goalkeeper. The Netherlands had a goalkeeper problem before the finals, but Norpert played well and relieved the worries. Norfert, who made his A-match debut in the World Cup, helped his team reach the quarterfinals.
Angelo Preciado (Equador), Alistair Johnstone (Canada), Hassan Al-Tambakti (Saudi Arabia), Harry Sauter and Craig Goodwin (Australia) were named in the defense. Preciado stood out as Ecuador’s right wingback. Johnstone played between center back and right fullback. Al-Tambakti made a brilliant contribution in defense when Saudi Arabia caught Argentina.
Sauter is the star Australia discovered. Sauter, who plays for Stoke City, has been sidelined for a long time due to injury and has made an impression by having an overwhelming advantage in the airball competition. Goodwin is a great defensive player in Australia with Sauter.
Sophian Amrabat (Morocco), Jehson Mendes (Equador), and Tyler Adams (USA) were deployed in the midfield. Amrabat has certainly taken centre stage in aggressive Morocco. His performance in the World Cup is so good that he is connected to big clubs. Mendes defended Ecuador’s midfield with Moises Kaisedo.
Adams is a midfielder who took over the captain’s armband instead of Christian Pulisic. Along with Yunus Musa and Western McKenny, he showed tremendous mobility in the midfield. This became an advantage of the U.S. and was also the driving force to advance to the round of 16.
The two top players were all Japanese players. Takuma Asano and Ritz Doan were selected. Asano scored a dramatic goal in the match against Germany with Japan’s “super serve” and became the main character of the unexpected. Doan also scored every important moment. Whether he was a starter or a substitute, he certainly played a good role as the spearhead of the Japanese attack based on his sharp breakthrough and forwardness.
