Park Jae-yong, who dreams of ‘the second Cho Kyu-seong’, selected Hwang Seon-hong… Should I go to Hangzhou, beating strong competitors?
Park Jae-yong is aiming for a surprise entry into the Asian Games final roster.
The Korea Football Association announced on the 8th that the under-24 (U-24) national team led by coach Hwang Sun-hong will conduct convocation training at Paju NFC from the 15th to the 17th, and also announced the convocation list. Originally, the Asian Games were scheduled to be held last year, but were postponed due to the aftermath of Corona 19. At the same time, the age limit was raised from 23 to 24.
Due to the situation,토토사이트 only players playing in the K-League were called up. Oh Hyun-kyu (Celtic), Lee Hyun-joo (Bayern Munich), Lee Kang-in (Real Mallorca), Hong Hyun-seok (Ghent), and Jeong Sang-bin (Minnesota) can also be summoned, but since it is a domestic training, K-League players are mainly selected and their skills will be evaluated through training. Key players such as Yang Hyeon-jun (Gangwon FC), Song Min-gyu (Jeonbuk Hyundai), Um Ji-seong (Gwangju FC), Cho Young-wook (Gimcheon Sangmu), and Lee Jae-ik (Seoul E-Land) were selected.
Park Jae-yong was there too. Park Jae-yong was born in 2000 as a striker. After attending Maetan Middle School and Anyang Technical High School, he received a priority nomination from FC Anyang and entered Incheon University. He left an impression while playing as a main gun at Incheon University and joined Anyang ahead of 2022. He played as backup Jo Nathan. While competing with Kim Ryun-do, he played 21 K-League 2 games (including promotion playoffs) and scored 2 goals. He was popular among Anyang fans as he was Anyang Seonggol youth.
This season, Park Jae-yong also played as Jonathan’s backup. Jonathan showed off his crazy form at the beginning of the season, so his playing time was inconsistent. Then, when Jo Nathan was kicked out for drunk driving, he started playing as a starter. There were many concerns, but Park Jae-yong did his part. He scored 3 goals in 9 league games, already surpassing last season’s tally. Based on his height, post play is an advantage, and he has a lot of activity, so he is trusted by coach Lee Woo-hyung.
His performance in Anyang led to Hwang Seon-hong being selected. Park Jae-yong has not been selected in the meantime, and there is no national team record by age. You should make an impression in this training. There are so many competitors. Chun Seong-hoon (Incheon United), who was also called up this time, is also on the list, but Lee Ho-jae (Pohang Steelers) and Heo Yul (Gwangju FC) are also competing. Although the possibility of convocation by solving military problems is low, Oh Hyun-kyu and Oh Se-hoon (Shimizu Pulse) can also be selected. All of them showed more than Park Jae-yong in their respective teams and national teams by age.
An official from the Korea Football Association said, “At the end of April, we submitted the first 50 preliminary entries. We will select 22 of them and submit them before the start of the tournament in early September.” It is noteworthy that Park Jae-yong, who saved the opportunity that came to him in Anyang, survived Hwang Seon-hong and became one of the 22 players.
If he beats the odds and goes to Hangzhou, he might be a little closer to one of his nicknames, ‘the second Cho Kyu-seong’.
