Hwang Seon-hong, who is challenging for the gold medal at the Hangzhou Asian Games (AG), has begun to compete in earnest.
The national under-24 (U-24) soccer team, which is preparing for the Hangzhou AG in September, will start convocation training at the Paju National Soccer Team Training Center (NFC) for three days from the 15th. It is during the K-League season, but since there was not enough training time before the tournament, the call was made with the cooperation of each club. Coach Hwang Seon-hong (55) plans to focus on sharing the team’s tactical direction, albeit for a short period of time.
Even though 토스카지노some of the key players such as overseas players could not join, the player base is quite thick. Players who come and go from the A national team are added, and players who have recently shown good performance in the K-League have also been newly convened. A large number of national team players under the age of 22 (U-22), the generation of the Paris Olympics next year, also challenged not only the Olympics but also AG participation. Head coach Hwang Seon-hong is in charge of both the U-24 national team, which will participate in AG, and the U-22 national team, which will participate in the Paris Olympics.
Song Min-kyu (24, Jeonbuk Hyundai), Eom Won-sang (24, Ulsan Hyundai), Cho Young-wook (24, Gimcheon Managing Director), and Lee Jae-ik (24, Seoul E-Land), who were included in the call-up list, were previously called by former coach Paulo Bento (Portugal). These are the resources that even boarded the national team A.
Song Min-gyu, who is recording 2 goals and 1 assist in Jeonbuk, is the first time to join Hwang Seon-hong. It is said that this call was made because coach Hwang wanted to meet him in person even though training was difficult because he was injured. Eom Won-sang was a resource that both Bento and Hwang Seon-hong wanted so much that he was selected for the A national team during the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) U-23 Asian Cup last year.
Rookies who have been showing good performances recently are also put to the test. Chun Seong-hun (23, Incheon United), who scored 3 goals in the last 4 games, and Park Jae-yong (23, FC Anyang), who scored 3 goals and 1 assist in the K-League 2, and two tall strikers over 190 cm were also called. Park Jae-yong is the first to board Hwang Seon-hong, and Chun Seong-hoon was also included in the call-up list twice in a row after being called up for the first time last March. Midfielder Jung Ho-yeon (23, Gwangju FC), who leads the Gwangju FC sensation, is the same case as Cheon Seong-hun.
A large number of U-22 generations who can participate in the Paris Olympics next year also stand out. Byun Jun-su (22, Daejeon Hana Citizen), Lee Tae-seok (21, FC Seoul), Hwang Jae-won (21, Daegu FC), and Jo Sung-kwon (22, Gimpo FC) first boarded the Hwang Seon-hong-ho when the Olympic team was called up, and then went through training for the AG team. widened the scope. Although they are two to three years younger than those born in 1999, who form the main axis of AG, their competitiveness has been recognized.
Koh Young-jun (22, Pohang Steelers), Yang Hyeon-jun (21, Gangwon FC), and Um Ji-seong (21, Gwangju), who were called to both the U-24 and U-22 national teams, must do their best to keep their position in the fiercer competition. Goalkeepers born in 1999, Go Dong-min (24, Gyeongnam FC), Ko Jae-hyeon (24, Daegu), Lee Sang-min (24, Seongnam FC), and Choi Jun (24, Busan I-Park) are the same.
As AG can receive special benefits for military service when winning a gold medal, the motivation of the athletes is bound to be particularly great. Foreign players such as Lee Kang-in (22, Mallorca) and Hong Hyun-seok (24, KAA Gent) are also aiming to participate in the AG, and the competition is expected to become increasingly fierce in the future. This internal competition can be a great boost to AG’s 3 consecutive gold medal challenges following the 2014 Incheon and 2018 Jakarta-Palembang (Indonesia) competitions. Hwang Seon-Hong-Ho is scheduled to have two evaluation matches overseas next month.
