Core members of Hwang Seon-hong's European team, including Bae Jun-ho (Stoke City), Yang Hyun-jun (Celtic), and Kim Ji-soo (Brentford), will participate in the men's soccer qualifiers for the 2024 Paris Olympics.

The Korea Football Association announced on the 29th the list of Hwang Seon-hong's U-23 national team members who will participate in the 2024 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Under-23 (U-23) Asian Cup to be held in Doha, Qatar from the 15th of next month.

This competition also serves as an Asian qualifier for the Paris Olympics.

Key overseas players, whose selection seemed uncertain as they belonged to overseas clubs, were named on the list. 스포츠 토토사이트

The names of Stoke City midfielder Bae Jun-ho of the English Championship (2nd division), Premier League (EPL) Brentford defender Kim Ji-soo, Scottish Celtic striker Yang Hyun-jun, and German Bundesliga 2nd division Dusseldorf midfielder Kim Min-woo were all included in the entries.

In addition, midfielder Jeong Sang-bin of Minnesota United, who did not play in the West Asian Football Federation (WAFF) U-23 Championship recently held in Saudi Arabia, was also included.

A representative of the national team said, “This is the final list for the Olympic qualifiers. We have completed discussions with the overseas teams, and Coach Hwang Sun-Hong has received a response from the overseas players' clubs that they will release the players. It has been confirmed that they will participate in the competition.”

However, the timing for overseas players to join the national team has not yet been determined.

First of all, 18 of the 23 players from the K League will meet first in the convocation training that will be held in Icheon, Gyeonggi-do from the 1st to the 3rd of next month.

The national team will leave for Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE), where a training camp is held on the 5th to undergo local adaptation training.

Next, they will enter Doha, Qatar, the site of the decisive battle, on the 10th.

The national team is hoping that overseas players will be able to join the Dubai training camp while it is underway.

Among the semifinalists of the U-23 World Cup held in Argentina last year, five, including Kang Seong-jin (Seoul), Kang Sang-yoon (Suwon FC), Lee Young-jun (Gimcheon), Bae Jun-ho, and Kim Ji-su, were included in the Olympic preliminary round.

The three men's soccer gold medal winning members of the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games held last year include Kim Jeong-hoon (Jeonbuk), Hwang Jae-won (Daegu), and Ahn Jae-jun (Bucheon).

There are two players, Kim Ji-soo and Yang Hyun-jun, who participated in the 2023 Qatar Asian Cup held earlier this year.
