Hwang Hee-chan (Wolverhampton Wanderers), who was injured, could not confirm the call for an A match in March.
On the 18th, the Korea Football Association (KFA) revealed the schedule for overseas players to join the national team. The KFA said, “Hwang Hee-chan’s decision to join the team will be made after discussing injuries with his club.”
The Korean national soccer team, led by coach Jurgen Klinsmann, will have an A-match schedule in March against Colombia at Munsu Stadium in Ulsan on the 24th and Uruguay at Seoul World Cup Stadium on the 28th.
As it is the first A match since Klinsman took over as coach, most of the main players in the round of 16 of the 2022 Qatar World Cup join and make their first appearance. However, it is unclear whether Hwang Hee-chan will join.
Hwang Hee-chan’s team, Wolverhampton Wanderers coach Hulen Lopetigi, announced Hwang Hee-chan’s injury through a press conference on the 17th.
“The rest of the players are almost ready, but unfortunately Hwang Hee-chan was injured,” he said. “Hwang Hee-chan will probably be ready to play after the A-match break.”
During the World Cup, Hwang Hee-chan was unable to play against Uruguay and Ghana due to a hamstring injury suffered by his team. As a substitute in the final game against Portugal, he scored the winning goal to lead the round of 16 with the help of Son Heung-min in the 45th minute of extra time in the second half.
While Hwang Hee-chan’s joining is uncertain, the rest of the overseas players will join the national team normally.
The players entering the country early include Kwon Kyung-won (Gamba Osaka), Jung Woo-young (Al Sadd), Song Bum-keun (Shonan Bellmare), Son Jun-ho (Shandong Taishan), Hwang In-beom (Olympiacos), who entered the country on the 18th and 19th, and domestic players on the 20th. He entered Paju NFC at the same time as others. 먹튀검증
