“Plan for direct agreement with the club”…Director Hwang Seon-hong, who strives to summon overseas players including ‘climax’ Lee Kang-in

 Coach Hwang Seon-hong is working hard to summon overseas players.

The under-24 (U-24) national team led by coach Hwang Seon-hong will conduct convocation training at Paju NFC from the 15th to the 17th. It is preparation for the Hangzhou Asian Games to be held in September. Originally, the Hangzhou Asian Games were scheduled to be held last year, but were postponed due to the aftermath of Corona 19. At the same time, the age limit was raised from 23 to 24.

Due to the situation, only players playing in the K-League were called up. There was not enough time left until September, but there was not enough time to convene, train, and sort out the boulders, so it was convened after seeking understanding from the K-League clubs. Major players such as Yang Hyeon-jun (Gangwon FC), Song Min-gyu (Jeonbuk Hyundai), Um Ji-seong (Gwangju FC), Cho Young-wook (Gimcheon Sangmu), and Lee Jae-ik (Seoul E-Land) were selected after finishing the league schedule. Through tactical sharing and training, we plan to select players to take to the finals of the Asian Games.

Attention was focused on whether or not to call overseas groups. Oh Hyun-kyu (Celtic), Lee Hyun-joo (Bayern Munich), Hong Hyun-seok (Ghent), and Jung Sang-bin (Minnesota) are representative overseas players. Lee Kang-in cannot be left out. Kang-in Lee boasted his best form this season and has risen to become a top midfielder in the Spanish La Liga. He has been praised for eliminating his shortcomings and maximizing his strengths, and a transfer to a big club this summer is likely.안전놀이터

Since the Asian Games will not be held at the time set by the International Football Federation (FIFA), an agreement with the affiliated teams is required. We need to talk to each overseas team, including Lee Kang-in, in advance and reach an agreement. Regarding the related content, director Hwang Seon-hong expressed his will at a press conference held on the 15th, saying, “I have been to Japan and plan to go to Europe.

He also slightly revealed how to use Lee Kang-in. Coach Hwang Seon-hong said, “It’s hard to say overall. I’ve been thinking about how to use it. I’ve been really good on the side and it’s really improved compared to before. The key is how well I do in other positions. There’s a lot left until September (Asian Games finals) I will communicate well and play well, so that I can play in my favorite position.”

On the other hand, coach Hwang Seon-hong said that the competition for the second line where Lee Kang-in is located is very fierce. He also said, “It’s not strange no matter who gets off.” The best young guns active in the K-League and overseas players at the A national team level are lined up in the second line. When asked about the selection criteria, he replied, “It’s the ability to go as one team. It’s a tournament and it’s a short-term match. You have to go as one team. I’ll look at that ability first.”
