The under-24 men’s soccer team, which is challenging for the gold medal at the Asian Games in Hangzhou in September, had convocation training with only domestic players.
Coach Hwang Seon-hong also revealed his idea of how to utilize Lee Kang-in, the core of the national team.
Reporter Jung Joo-hee went to the training site.
During the short call-up period of 2 nights and 3 days, coach Hwang Seon-hong focused on sharing tactics.
Coach Hwang’s pick of the position with the most intense competition for boarding is flank midfielder, and
Lee Kang-in from Mallorca, Spain, is also active on the side, suggesting that the way Lee Kang-in is used can eventually become the ‘key’ of the final roster.
<Hwang Seon-hong / U-24 national soccer team coach> “(Lee Kang-in) is playing a lot in the side midfield now, and he has improved a lot compared to before, but how competitive he can be in another position is also key. I think it’s good, so that the player can play well and play in his favorite position…”
The striker position is still a concern.
Manager Hwang revealed that there are about 10 wild card candidates to be used for positions that are lacking.스포츠토토
He said that he would directly persuade his team to recruit Kang-in Lee and the wild card, and he said that discussions with coach Klinsman of the adult national team are also going well.
The national team, aiming for a gold medal at the Asian Games three times in a row following Incheon in 2014 and Jakarta in 2018, is determined to overcome the burden.
<Eom Won-sang / U-24 National Soccer Team> “It is true that Korea is a strong team in Asia, and I think it is good for us to feel pressure.”
The under-24 national team, led by coach Hwang Seon-hong, will have two rounds of evaluation matches abroad after convocation training again next month. This is Yonhap News
