European clubs are ‘relaxed’ by South Korean players’ Asian Cup call-up…Reaffirming the elevated status

The national soccer team, led by head coach Jurgen Klinsmann (Germany), will focus on the 2023 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Asian Cup, which will be held in Qatar from January to February next year. South Korea, which has not won a championship since 1960, is trying to solve the problem of winning for the first time in 64 years with the best players ever, including Son Heung-min (Tottenham), Hwang Hee-chan (Wolverhampton), Kim Min-jae (Bayern Munich), and Lee Kang-in (Paris Saint-Germain, PSG).

The schedule for convening the Asian Cup has also been set. The list of 16 players for domestic training has been announced on Wednesday, and the team will hold physical training and physical condition checkups around Seoul on Wednesday. The team will confirm its final entry to the Asian Cup on Friday and depart for Abu Dhabi, the United Arab Emirates, on Jan. 2 next year. 온라인경마

However, the timing of European players’ joining has yet to be determined. According to the Korea Football Association, European players will join the national team around an exhibition match against Iraq on January 6 next year, but they are currently discussing with their respective teams about when to recruit players.

The Korean team is anxious for European players to join as soon as possible, but its teams are agonizing over the absence of Korean players from the Asian Cup. Tottenham is set to lose Son Heung-min, the most prolific scorer in its team. Son, who has led its team’s offense by scoring 11 goals in this season’s English Premier League, is highly likely to miss up to five matches during the Asian Cup, even if he joins the national team after playing at a home game against Bournemouth on Sunday. Tottenham manager Enze Postecoglou (Australia) also said on Wednesday that his task would be to improve his leadership while Son is away.

Wolverhampton is also concerned about losing Hwang Hee-chan. Wolverhampton has become the most prolific scorer in his team by scoring eight goals in the league this season, so he needs to find resources to replace Hwang during the Asian Cup as soon as possible. After a home game against Chelsea (2-1 win) on Monday, Hwang said that his team is still in discussions over the date of his selection as a national team player, but like Son Heung-min, chances are high that he will join the national team after a home game against Everton on Sunday.

Bayern Munich and PSG also have to fill the gap between Kim Min-jae and Lee Kang-in, respectively. German media outlet Bavarian Football expressed that “the biggest crisis for Bayern Munich this season is the period when Kim Min-jae is away to play the Asian Cup,” while French media Get French Football expressed concern about Lee Kang-in’s absence, saying, “Lee Kang-in’s transfer could have a big impact on the composition of PSG’s team.”
