Ahead of the upcoming Asian Games in Hangzhou in September, Hwang Seon-hong, head coach of the Korean national soccer team under the age of 23 (U-23), watched the opening match of the K-League 1 in person and began to carefully select the gems.
Head coach Hwang Seon-hong visited the Suwon World Cup Stadium to watch the opening game of the Hana 1 Q K League 1 2023 between Suwon Samsung and Gwangju FC on the 25th (Gwangju won 1-0). He carefully observed the players on the ground.
In 2023, Seonhong Hwang is busy. After the evaluation matches from March to June to September, the full-scale competition will begin in September.
Director Hwang Seon-hong has a painful schedule ahead of him. The Hangzhou Asian Games in September and the Asian qualifiers for the 2024 Paris Olympics (U-23 Asian Cup qualifiers) will be held at the same time. Dualization is inevitable.
Fortunately, the Hangzhou Asian Games age has been adjusted. According to the Korea Sports Council and the Korea Football Association on the 17th, people born in 1999 can join the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games, which will be postponed for a year and kicked off this year.
In other words, the age limit for players participating in the Asian Games limited to this tournament has been changed from the existing U-23 to 24 years old or younger (U-24). Three ‘wild card’ players who do not have age restrictions are heading to Hangzhou together. 스포츠토토
In addition, coach Hwang Seon-hong should also consider the 2024 Paris Olympics, which also has an age limit of U-23. The final line of players who will participate in the Asian qualifiers for the Paris Olympics (September 4-12), which will be held right before the Hangzhou Asian Games (September 23-October 8), are born in 2001.
