Instead of ‘injured’ Kwon Kyung-won, ‘German’ Park Kyu-hyun was selected for the first time for the A national team, and ‘detention’ Son Joon-ho maintained the list

The A national team, led by head coach Jürgen Klinsmann, will play a friendly match against Peru at Busan Asiad Main Stadium at 8 p.m. on the 16th and El Salvador at Daejeon World Cup Stadium at 8 p.m. on the 20th. Klinsmann previously announced the 23-man roster on the 5th. Compared to three months ago, there were six “New Face.” Park Ji-soo (Protimonense), Kim Joo-sung (Seoul), Ahn Hyun-beom (Jeju), Hong Hyun-seok (Hent), Won Doo-jae (Gimcheon) and Park Yong-woo (Ulsan) of the defensive line are new faces. In addition to Hong Hyun-suk, who plays in the Belgian league, K-League’s Ahn Hyun-beom and Park Yong-woo will be on board for the first time for the A national team. After the A match in March, Klinsmann and his coaches focused on European players. Coach Paolo Stringara met Park Ji-soo and senior coach Andreas Hairchoke met Hong Hyun-seok and confirmed their possibilities.

There has been a change in the Klinsmann team, which is trying to win its first victory. The Korea Football Association said on the 12th, “Kwon Kyung-won (Gamba Osaka) was excluded from the call-up list after injuring his ankle ligament during the J-League match on the 7th.” Instead, Jung Seung-hyun (Ulsan Hyundai), Park Kyu-hyun (Dinamo Dresden), and Moon Sun-min (Jeonbuk Hyundai) were selected as alternatives. Jung Seung-hyun’s selection was expected to some extent, but Park Kyu-hyun’s selection is unexpected.

Park Kyu-hyun was originally included in the Asian Games national team list led by head coach Hwang Sun-hong, but moved to the A national team after being called by head coach Klinsmann. Park Kyu-hyun is from Hyundai High School in Ulsan and immediately moved to Werder Bremen in Germany. He is a promising player who has been consistently listed on the national team by age as a multi-resource that can play left-back, center back, and defensive midfielder. Park Kyu-hyun, who played well on loan last season, chose to transfer to Dresden completely this summer.

Klinsmann’s center-back line will be completely changed compared to the A match in March, with Kwon Kyung-won excluded following Kim Min-jae (Napoli), Kim Young-kwon (Ulsan Hyundai), and Cho Yoo-min (Daejeon Hana Citizen). You have to experiment with a new face.

Not only the defense but also Moon Sun-min were newly selected. Moon Sun-min joined the national team for the first time in three and a half years since the East Asian Football Confederation (EAFF) E-1 Championship (East Asian Cup) in December 2019. Moon Sun-min has recently been very active in the K League and has been given another chance.

Son Joon-ho (Shandong Taishan), 메이저사이트 who was detained in China, continued to be included in the list. The Korea Football Association said, “Son Joon-ho has become virtually impossible to call up.” However, it will continue to be included in the list,” he said. Director Klinsmann said, “I wanted to tell you that we are 100% supporting Son Joon-ho. “We selected him with the intention of helping him as much as possible,” he said. The Korea Football Association sent Jeon Jin-jin, head of the management division, and a lawyer to China to understand Son Joon-ho’s situation. They returned home on the 4th. An official from the Korea Football Association said, “There was no income. Sohn Joon-ho, a private lawyer, was also reluctant to request an interview from the Korea Football Association. The Chinese Football Association also said, “There is nothing to tell.”

As a result, the Klinsmann called up 24 players, one more than 23. The Korea Football Association explained, “It is to prepare for the occurrence of injured players and to have room for player management.”

Meanwhile, Hwang Sun-hong, without Park Kyu-hyun, selected 27 players this time, and did not select a substitute because he could afford it.
