Joo Min-gyu (Ulsan Hyundai)’s name was not mentioned again.
There was no ‘surprise selection’. The Korea Football Association announced the list of 16 players who will be training domestically in preparation for the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Asian Cup to be held in Qatar in January next year
but only familiar faces were on the list. The association explained, “It was made up of K-League players who are candidates for the final roster for the Asian Cup and some overseas players who are available for training during their break.” 먹튀검증사이트
Only Cho Kyu-seong (Midtjylland) was included as a striker. While Hwang Ui-jo (Norwich City)
who is suspected of ‘illegal filming’, cannot join the national team for the time being
there were many expectations that Joo Min-gyu (Ulsan Hyundai), the top scorer in K League 1 for the 2023 season, would be selected, but he was ignored again.
The final 26 players for the Asian Cup will be announced on the 28th.
Afterwards, the national team will move to the United Arab Emirates (UAE) on January 2nd to participate in field training and evaluation matches, and enter Qatar, the battleground, on January 10th.
The domestic convocation will be held only through indoor training at a hotel in downtown Seoul starting on the 26th. In addition to Cho Gyu-seong, overseas players such as Lee Jae-seong (Mainz), Hwang In-beom (Zvezda), and Jeong Woo-young (Stuttgart) were called up.
The association said that it will check the physical condition and fatigue of players during the convocation period and focus on maintaining their condition. This means that rather than selecting new players and making changes in tactics, etc.
domestic training will be conducted mainly with players who were on the national team under the Klinsmann system.
Even before the announcement of the national team roster last September, he said, “Honestly, I expect 0.1%. I’ve been so hurt so far that I just empty my mind and wait calmly.
He also expressed his honest feelings, saying, “Whether it works or not, I try not to be greedy.”
Joo Min-gyu has no ties to the national team. Even though he is the league’s leading goal scorer, he has not always been called up to the national team.
The last time he was named to the reserve list (50 players) for the 2015 East Asian Cup was under former coach Uli Stielike.
