A year after the FIFA 2022 Qatar World Cup, 12 new players will compete in international competitions.
Jürgen Klinsmann, head coach of the Korean national soccer team, participated in the 2023 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Qatar Asian Cup announcement ceremony held at CGV Yongsan I’Park Mall in Yongsan-gu, Seoul on the 28th and unveiled the final 26.
Players who are playing in European leagues were included. Captain Son Heung-min (Tottenham Hotspur), Kim Min-jae (Bayern Munich), Lee Kang-in (Saint-Germain in Paris), and Hwang Hee-chan (Wolverhampton Wanderers) were also included. In addition, players who are active in Korean leagues such as Jung Seung-hyun (Ulsan HD), Kim Jin-soo (Jeonbuk Hyundai), and Lee Soon-min (Gwangju FC) were also listed.
It is the first international competition finals that Team A will have in about a year after reaching the round of 16 at the World Cup in Qatar in November last year. Paulo Bento, who led the national team at the time, brought great joy to Korean soccer fans by succeeding in the round of 16 by beating Ghana and Uruguay.
And a year later, Klinsmann chose 26 players to his liking after giving the team his own color. This is the Asian Cup squad, which has 12 players changed from the 26-man roster for the World Cup in Qatar. 랭크카지노
Hwang Ui-jo (Norwich City), who is suspected of shooting illegally, was excluded from the list. The Korea Football Association previously announced last month that it would not make the national team until Hwang Ui-jo is cleared of the charges. Hwang Ui-jo competed in good faith with Cho Kyu-sung (Mitwhelan) for the position of frontline striker at the World Cup in Qatar, but he will not be able to join the team at this Asian Cup due to unfavorable circumstances.
Instead, Oh Hyun-gyu (Celtic) joined Cho Kyu-sung. Under Coach Klinsmann, Oh has consistently been on the national team roster. During the Qatar World Cup, he became the 27th member to draw attention. At that time, Bento did not officially select Oh, but decided to accompany him to the World Cup. Oh accepted this silently, and he helped the team outside of the game and got credit for it. Now, he is a member of the Asian Cup.
