In the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games men’s soccer scheduled to be held in September this year, players born in 1999 (24 years old) can also participate.
According to the Korea Sports Council and the Korea Football Association on the 17th, the Hangzhou Asian Games Organizing Committee raised the age limit for male soccer players to ‘born after January 1, 1999’.
In the Asian Games men’s soccer, up to the age of 23 (U23) can participate in the tournament. In the case of the 2022 tournament, as the holding was postponed for a year due to Corona 19, the participation of players born in 1999 became unclear. However, the organizing committee adjusted the age limit for those born in 1999 to take this into consideration. 먹튀검증
Representative players who can participate with this decision include Jung Woo-young (Freiburg), Song Min-gyu (Jeonbuk Hyundai), Eom Won-sang (Ulsan Hyundai), and Jo Young-wook (Kim Chun Sang-mu). All of them have been called up by coach Paulo Bento and have been named to the A national team. Hong Hyun-seok (Hent), who is rising in stock in Europe, was also born in 1999.
The total entry is 22 players including 3 goalkeepers. You can also draw up to 3 wild cards that do not have an age limit.
The Korean national team is aiming for a third consecutive victory in this tournament. 2014 Incheon and 2018 Jakarta-Palembang Asian Games achieved two consecutive victories, proving that they are the strongest country in Asia. If you win, you will be exempted from military service. For players born in 1999, this is the last chance to risk life and death. Previously, players who played in the K-League, such as Lee Seung-woo, Cho Yu-min, and Kim Jin-ya, were exempted from winning the 2018 tournament.
The Hangzhou Asian Games will be held from September 23rd to October 18th.
