The competition for the starting position is still fierce.카지노사이트 There is a lot of change in the squad over the course of a year, so it is impossible to predict who will step on the pitch until the end. This is the story of the U-24 national team that is about to participate in the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games.
The U-24 national team, led by coach Hwang Seon-hong, will resume training for the Hangzhou Asian Games at the Paju National Training Center (NFC) from the 13th. The U-24 national team, which previously held its first training session at Changwon Sports Complex from the 4th to the 11th, will continue its training at Paju NFC after a day’s rest on the 12th before leaving the country on the 16th.
Coach Hwang directs both the U-24 and U-22 national teams. During this convocation period, the U-22 national team was competing in the 2024 Paris Olympics regional qualifiers and the 2024 U-23 Asian Cup qualifiers, so there were bound to be difficulties in coaching the U-24 national team. However, as the U-22 national team concluded its schedule with the match against Myanmar on the 12th, Coach Hwang plans to focus entirely on the U-24 national team.
Coach Hwang’s immediate task is to form the starting lineup for the U-24 national team. Hong Hyun-seok (Gent) joined the U-24 national team training from the 9th after being selected to the A national team, but Seol Young-woo (Ulsan Hyundai), who was also selected to the A national team like Hong Hyun-seok, and Lee Kang-in (Paris Saint-Germain), who was injured, are scheduled to join on the 13th. It is expected to be confirmed later. Since the team is not at full strength, Coach Hwang also expressed concern, saying, “We need to prepare for the first match of Group E of the Asian Games against Kuwait on the 19th with the players we have now (rather than with players who have not yet joined).”
The fact that the team has changed within a year is also a major concern. Among the players who participated in the U-23 Asian Cup in May last year, the resources that secured tickets to Hangzhou this time were Young-wook Cho (Gimcheon Managing Director), Young-jun Ko (Pohang Steelers), Kang-in Lee, Hyun-seok Hong, Jun Choi (Busan I’Park), and Seong-jun Min out of a total of 22. There are only 6 players including (Incheon United). Even considering that Eom Won-sang (Ulsan), Song Min-gyu (Jeonbuk Hyundai), and Jung Woo-young (Stuttgart) were called up to the national team A and were absent, about 60% of the players changed.
New faces such as goalkeeper Lee Gwang-yeon (Gangwon FC) and Kim Jeong-hoon (Jeonbuk), defender Lee Han-beom (Midtjylland), and striker Park Jae-yong (Jeonbuk) were selected by Coach Hwang. Expectations are high as they have enough power to win three consecutive Asian Games, but finding the optimal combination between them is an urgent priority. Coach Hwang said, “I hope the players can take their time preparing for the competition because only the coach can feel the urgency.”
