The peak of the hwarong was Jeong Sang-bin (Minnesota).

Hwang Seon-hong, the coach of the Korean Olympic team, revealed on Monday the final entry of 23 players who will participate in the 2024 Asian Cup of the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) in Doha, Qatar, in April. The upcoming event will also serve as the final qualifying round for the 2024 Paris Olympics. Sixteen teams will participate in the U-23 Asian Cup, with the top three advancing directly to the Olympics finals. The fourth place finisher is to have a playoff game with the fourth place finisher in Africa qualifying. Korea will compete with the UAE (16th), China (19th) and Japan (22nd) in Group B in that order. The Korean soccer team will try to advance to the Olympics finals for the 10th consecutive time since the 1988 Seoul Olympics.

Hwang, who temporarily led the A team as a firefighter, joined the Olympic team, his main job, without taking a break. Returning to Korea from Thailand on Sunday, Hwang met with other players in person at the Olympic team that won the title at the 2024 WAFF U-23 Championship. Led by senior coach Myung Jae-yong instead of Hwang, the Olympic team conquered Thailand, Saudi Arabia, and Australia in succession to win the title. Hwang immediately moved to somewhere with his coaching staff and started work on the final entry. He held a marathon meeting for two days and one night. Hwang already looked into the matches he played at the WAFF U-23 Championship, but he reviewed them again with the coaching staff who led the team there and selected players.

Most of the participants were players who had recently participated in the Western Asia Federation U-23 Championship in Saudi Arabia. Among the foreign players, Bae Joon-ho (Stock City), Kim Ji-soo (Brentford), and Yang Hyun-joon (Celtic) were called in. As the U-23 Asian Cup is not an official FIFA A match period, players cannot be forcibly picked out. They were Kim Min-woo (Dusseldorf) who made the final entry through cooperation from his team. What drew attention was the “K Mbappe” Jung Sang-bin. Recently, Jung was an ace player for the Olympic team and even scored a point in the match against France. However, he was troubled that it would not be easy to call Hwang, and he made the entry in a surprise move. One of the concerns of the Olympic team was offense, but the inclusion of Jung, who can play both front and side, has given a breather. 고수익알바

In addition, Umji Sung (Gwangju), Kang Sung-jin (Seoul), Hwang Jae-won (Daegu), Jang Si-young (Ulsan), and Kim Jung-hoon (Jeonbuk), who are active in the K-League, also joined the team. Among the participants, five members of the semifinals of last year’s U-20 World Cup in Argentina (Kim Ji-soo, Bae Joon-ho, Kang Sung-jin, Kang Sang-yoon, and Lee Young-jun) and three gold medal members (Kim Jung-hoon, Hwang Jae-won, and Ahn Jae-jun) participated in the Asian Cup in January this year.

Hwang plans to tour the K-League again over the weekend to check players’ performance and capability. From April, he is in full-fledged U-23 Asian Cup mode. Hwang, who will be convened in Korea again on April 1, will depart for the United Arab Emirates on April 5 and begin his final tempering in Dubai. He will play a practice match with a Middle Eastern team on April 9 and arrive in Doha, where the final qualifying round will be held on April 10. The schedule for overseas club players will be determined later.
