fair to say that they are the ‘best golden generation’ in history. Players at all positions are comprised of the faces that will lead the future of Korean soccer. This is the story of the Korean national soccer team participating in the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games to be held in September this year.

This national team, led by coach Hwang Seon-hong, has on its roster not only players who are active in the K-League but also players who have debuted in European leagues and the adult national team.

Accordingly, opinions are being expressed everywhere that the possibility of winning a gold medal is higher than ever. If they win a gold medal, European players such as Lee Kang-in, Hong Hyun-seok, and Jung Woo-young will receive exemption from military service, and domestic players such as Baek Seung-ho, Song Min-gyu, Eom Won-sang, and Seol Young-woo will have a higher chance of advancing overseas.

If they fail to win the gold medal, all players except Lee Kang-in, who holds overseas permanent residency and can delay enlistment until the age of 37, will not be able to avoid military service. Baek Seung-ho and Song Min-gyu, who have already passed the rank of managing director, will enlist at the end of this year.

Although it is a desperate situation to win a gold medal for the future of Korean soccer, doubts about Hwang Seon-hong’s performance are growing among soccer fans.온라인카지노

The national soccer team lost 3-0 in the quarterfinals against Japan at the 2022 AFC U-23 Asian Cup held in Uzbekistan in June last year. The friendly matches that followed also produced disappointing results one after another. In particular, criticism continued that the game was played in a way that relied on individual players’ abilities and lacked detailed tactics.

Because of this, coach Hwang Seon-hong has a greater sense of responsibility to prove his skills in the remaining friendly matches. As it is predicted that the 2024 Paris Olympics to be held next year will also be dominated by players who played in this year’s Asian Games, more keen attention is being paid to coach Hwang Seon-hong.
