The 22-man roster for the Hangzhou Asian Games in September has been announced.
Along with K League mainstays such as Uhm Won-sang and Song Min-kyu, overseas players such as Jung Woo-young and Hong Hyun-seok were included, and Lee Kang-in, who has been the most talked about player, made the list.
Although consultation with his club, Paris Saint-Germain, is required, the player’s will is strong, so we are hopeful.

“Lee Kang-in’s willingness to participate in the Asian Games is very strong. We had already agreed with Mallorca about his participation in the Asian Games, and I am very positive about it (with PSG).”
Wildcards have added to the solidity of the defense.
Jeonbuk’s Park Jin-seop and Baek Seung-ho, who have remaining military service obligations, and Ulsan fullback Seol Young-woo were selected.

“I think they are proven players in the K League, and I think they will play a big role as the center of the team.”
The attacking second line is literally saturated.
A whopping seven of the nine midfielders are attacking options.
But when it came to a legitimate striker, they were in deep trouble.
The team had been in contact with a number of candidates, including veteran Lee Min-kyu, to the point of delaying the roster submission announcement, but all fell through, 카지노사이트넷 forcing them to go with an existing member.

“I contacted all the strikers, including those who are overseas, and there is a part of me that was tweaking until the end because we still have Inhabigyu, but I think the strikers I chose now are second to none.”
The final 22 cannot be changed except for injuries, and roster changes can only be made right before the first game.
