A total of 8 teams including Ulsan Hyundai, Brentford B (England), FC Mittwillan, Lynby BK, FC Copenhagen, Bronby (Denmark), AIK Stockholm, Halmstad BK (Sweden), and 7 teams from the European 1st Division will participate. Dog teams compete. The teams are divided into two groups of four and play in the group stage, with the first place in each group competing in the finals.
Ulsan, which is trying to win its second K-League 1 title, started field training in the Algarve on the 22nd of last month. Ahead of the new season, Ulsan, which recruited midfielders Boyanich, Rubiksson (above Sweden), Esaka Ataru (Japan), and Joo Min-gyu, who was the top scorer, conducted physical and organizational training ahead of the match.
The Brentford B team, the opponent of this day, is the team where Romeo Beckham, the son of David Beckham, belongs.
Ulsan started most of the main players against the Brentford B team. Along with key players such as Martin Adam, Um Won-sang, and Jo Hyun-woo, the newly joined Ataru and Boyanic were brought into the game. Ulsan, who had their first real match in the winter field training, played a fierce match against the Brentford B team through various tactical changes.
It was not a normal situation. If Brentford B was in normal physical condition because it was in the middle of the season, Ulsan was in a different condition. Of course, a fierce game continued because Ulsan mainly had young players. 먹튀검증
