January 30 News Yesterday, the Chinese Football Association announced the U24 men’s Asian Games team training list, of which the Hebei team
Teenager Zhang Wei was selected for the first time.
In an interview with “Sports Weekly”, Zhang Wei said that it is a supreme honor to be selected into the national title.
In July last year, before the U23 national team participated in the East Asian Cup in the name of the national football selection team, Zhang Wei completed a “team visit” in his hometown Qingdao.
Zhang Wei said: “My former team doctor happened to be in the team at the time, so I went to have a look at him and reminisce about the past.” But afterwards, most U23 national team players did not notice Zhang Wei’s unannounced visit.
Zhang Wei has never had any experience of a national brand before, so he is full of expectations.
Zhang Wei said: “Although I have not been selected for any national team, being selected for the national team is the highest honor for every player. It is a recognition of ability and experience. For the future, I am sure
I have yearning and expectations. I am still young, and I think this (unlisted for the East Asian Cup) has to do better for me. This is my sincerity, I cannot be satisfied with the status quo, and I want to strive for more
Today, Zhang Wei’s dream of being selected as a national brand has finally come true.
But Zhang Wei said privately that he was somewhat surprised.
Since the start of the second stage of the league last year, Zhang Wei has been plagued by frequent injuries and has missed more than ten league games of the Hebei team, and only scored one goal after ten rounds.
When relevant people told Zhang Wei that he needs to be prepared and may participate in the Men’s Football Asian Games training camp in early 2023, he was both surprised and happy.
Zhang Wei said: “I am always ready to face more challenges and difficulties, because I don’t know what I will face in the future. It is like this every day, and I must always be prepared.”
