Jung Seung-hyun (Ulsan), Park Kyu-hyun (Dinamo Dresden), and Moon Sun-min (Jeonbuk) have been selected as substitutes for the men’s national soccer team led by Jürgen Klinsmann (Germany).

The Korea Football Association announced on the 12th, “Kwon Kyung-won (Gamba Osaka) was excluded from the call-up list due to an ankle ligament injury during a Japanese professional football game last week,” adding, “Instead, Jung Seung-hyun, Park Kyu-hyun, and Moon Sun-min were selected.”

The national soccer team led by head coach Klinsmann will be convened in Busan later in the day.

After that, they will play a friendly 안전놀이터 match against Peru at Busan Asiad Main Stadium on the 16th and face El Salvador at Daejeon World Cup Stadium on the 20th.

Regarding Son Joon-ho (Shandong Taishan), who is currently in detention in China, the Korea Football Association explained, “It has become virtually impossible to call him in, but he will continue to be included in the list.”

Son Joon-ho has been under investigation under criminal detention by China’s Liaoning Province public security authorities since the 12th of last month on charges of accepting non-state agents.

The crime of accepting non-state agents is a charge that applies to cases where civilians illegally receive property from others in connection with their duties.

Meanwhile, Park Kyu-hyun was originally selected for the Asian Games team, which will leave for China on the 12th, but was selected for the A team for the first time due to the decision.

The Asian Games national team, led by head coach Hwang Sun-hong, has decided not to make additional selections to replace Park Kyu-hyun because it has enough call-ups (27).
