‘The direction of the wild card depends’ Director Hwang Seon-hong, ‘Going to Scotland’ to discuss Oh Hyeon-gyu’s selection

There is no time to rest. Hwang Seon-hong’s U-24 national team coach’s forced march continues. From the 15th to the 17th, coach Hwang held a mini-training with 24 players at Paju NFC. It was a choice to keep in step with the players even a little ahead of the Asian Games in Guangzhou in September. Coach Hwang focused on acquainting the players with tactical points in advance. He plans to call the players once again during the A match in June.카지노사이트

After completing his short schedule, Hwang boarded a plane to Scotland on the 18th. He is discussing the recruitment of striker Oh Hyeon-kyu (Celtic) with the Celtic club. Oh Hyeon-gyu is a key puzzle for Hwang Seon-hong, who is aiming for three consecutive gold medals in the Asian Games. Hwang Seon-Hong-Ho has a serious position imbalance. The 2nd line is literally the best ever. Song Min-gyu (Jeonbuk Hyundai), Eom Won-sang (Ulsan Hyundai), Yang Hyeon-jun (Gangwon FC), Um Ji-seong (Gwangju FC), and other players with national team experience are located. Here, there are ‘aces’ Lee Kang-in (Mallorca) and Jung Woo-young (Freiburg), who are likely to join the Asian Games final entry.

On the other hand, the front line is a different story. There are no clear strikers. Cho Young-wook (Gimcheon Managing Director) is difficult to classify as a clear ‘Number 9’, and Cheon Seong-hoon (Incheon United) Park Jae-yong (FC Anyang) Ahn Jae-joon (Bucheon FC) has a weak sense of weight. Head coach Hwang went to Japan and even checked ‘tall striker’ Oh Se-hun (Shimizu). It’s a good card, but I’m not particularly happy with it.

Oh Hyun-gyu is a card that can blow away director Hwang’s worries. Oh Hyun-gyu, who played a big role in Suwon Samsung in the 2022 season and was on the preliminary list for the Qatar World Cup, was recognized for his ability and proudly became a European player. He is slowly increasing his playing time at Celtic as well. In March, his preliminary ticket was lifted and he officially established himself as a member of the A national team. He boarded the first plane of the Klinsman and took a picture of his destructive power. Combining strength, height, and speed, Oh Hyun-gyu is the most ideal striker for the Asian Games national team, which has to face the opponent’s dense defense throughout the tournament.

The problem is borrowing. It is unlikely that Celtic will send Oh Hyeon-gyu when the competition begins in September. The season starts in September. The Asian Games are not compulsory selection competitions. If Hyun-gyu Oh had military problems, Celtic could welcome him with open arms, but Hyun-gyu Oh is already a ‘military’. In 2021, he completed his military service through the Armed Forces Sports Unit (Sangmu). With Oh Hyun-kyu as their next striker, Celtic will not want to miss the early part of his first full season at the Asian Games.

Hwang, who is well aware of this, decided to meet directly with Celtic. Coach Hwang will hold a meeting on the 19th, watch the match between Celtic and St. Mirren on the 20th, and return to Korea.

If Celtic refuses to hire Oh Hyun-gyu, the wild card composition will also be completely revised. Recently, coach Hwang submitted an entry of 50 players to participate in the Asian Games. This entry included 10 wild card candidates. Coach Hwang is considering using a wild card as a center back and central midfielder. If Oh Hyeon-kyu is selected, he is planning to use a wild card in addition to the goalkeeper or defense, but if not, it is inevitable to use it as a striker. It is a situation where the composition of the Asian Games entry itself can be changed, so Hwang’s trip to Scotland attracts attention.
