Bucheon 2002 defender Son Seong-kwan named to Hwang Sun-hong’s Olympic team
Bucheon FC defender Myung-gwan Seo was called up to the Korean Olympic soccer team.
The Korea Football Association announced on the 22nd the list of convened Olympic teams in preparation for the first qualifying round for the 카지노사이트 Olympics and the AFC U-23 Asian Cup qualifiers to be held next month. This team is made up of only players under the age of 22. It is a call to prepare for the 2024 Paris Olympics first qualifying round and the 2024 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) U-23 Asian Cup qualifying round.
Seo Myung-gwan is a central defender born in 2002 who has been attracting attention since his days at Ajou University. His first steps on the professional stage came with his K-League debut in Bucheon. Seo Myung-gwan, who was used as a U-22 resource and played regularly, added stability to Bucheon’s three-back tactic with his composure and build-up ability uncharacteristic of a rookie.
In October of last year, following the call-up training for the Paris Olympic team, which was mainly composed of university players, in March of this year, Seomyeong-gwan was also selected for the Olympic team participating in the U-22 Doha Cup. Head coach Hwang Seon-hong, who leads the Olympic team, is keeping an eye on the signing hall.
The convocation training for the Olympic team will be held at the Changwon Soccer Center from the 28th to the 3rd of next month. Through this training, the final list for the U-23 Asian Cup qualifiers will be decided.
Seo Myung-gwan said, “I think he was able to be selected for the Olympic team because he continued to compete in Bucheon. I am grateful to the coach, coaching staff, and his colleagues and brothers for giving me the opportunity. I will do my best to train well so that he does not get hurt and go to the final selection.”
Bucheon is a team that recruits and nurtures young players with potential for growth together with coach Lee Young-min, a “prospect nurturing master”. The Bucheon club pledged, “We will do our best to become competitive so that young players in Bucheon can be consistently selected for the Olympic team.”
