After the game, Inhabigyu said, “It was a pressure because it was the next game after Jeonbuk, but we were able to come back and win as a team. It was a very good game,” he said.
When the news of his elimination from the national team came up, he couldn’t hide his mixed feelings. In the national team roster announced on May 5, strikers Hwang Eui-jo, Cho Kyu-sung, and Oh Hyun-gyu were included, but he was left out.
Even though he was a top scorer under Bento, he was ignored. When Klinsmann came to Korea, the world’s top attacking coach saw him in action. Hwang Eui-jo and Cho Kyu-sung are in a slump.

“There are players in the K League who score more goals, but there is something about the striker position that we think is important,” Klinsmann said, indirectly referring to In-Joo. What does Klinsmann think he lacks in the qualities of a striker?
“Honestly, I’d be lying if I said I didn’t have high expectations. I had high hopes, but I was also disappointed. I didn’t have time to get drunk with disappointment. I had a game today, so I regrouped. Fans of other teams also contacted me and said they were sorry. I’m grateful for that. I will continue to work hard and not give up.”
With the arrival of attacking export Klinsmann, Inhabigyu had higher expectations than ever. “I need to score more goals on the field,” he said, “but I’m not sure how to do it. If I fulfill what coach (Hong Myung-bo) tells me to do, he will look at me favorably from the outside,” he said.
Unfortunately, Injongyu is focused on Ulsan’s two-game losing streak. “Whether you make the national team or not, there is always motivation. I came to Ulsan to win a lot of trophies. I think the national team is a bonus. I may or may not make it,” he said.
