Europeans born in 1999 Jung Woo-young and Hong Hyun-seok got a chance… Hangzhou AG men’s football age ‘upgraded’ to U-24

The Hangzhou Asian Games were postponed for a year due to corona, so all the players who suffered damage are expected to be saved. People born in 1999 can also join the men’s soccer team of the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games, which kicks off in September this year.

According to the Korea Sports Council and the Korea Football Association on the 17th, the Hangzhou Asian Games Organizing Committee recently announced that the age limit for men’s soccer players was ‘born after January 1, 1999’. In other words, the age limit for participating players was raised by one year from 23 to 24 years old (U-24).

The Asian Games men’s soccer has an age limit for players under the age of 23 (U-23). It’s like the Olympics. The same is true in that a maximum of three players per team can be included as wild cards without age restrictions.

The Hangzhou Asian Games were supposed to be held last year, but the tournament was postponed for a year due to the pandemic of the novel coronavirus infection (Corona 19). At the same time, much attention was paid to how to set the age limit for male soccer players. As a result, coach Hwang Seon-hong of the Korean under-23 national team, which is trying to win three consecutive Asian Games following Incheon in 2014 and Jakarta and Palembang in 2018, sighed. Because the range of choices is wide. This is enough to build the best power for your age group. 메이저놀이터

In particular, Hong Hyun-seok, who entered the Belgian league, is a player who has been playing on the European stage in good condition until recently. Hong Hyeon-seok, who moved to Henro this season, is adapting smoothly to the European stage, recording 8 goals and 6 assists in the official match.
