Kim Ji-soo (Brentford), an overseas defender of the Olympic soccer team led by coach Hwang Seon-hong, will not be able to participate in the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) U-23 Asian Cup due to his team’s circumstances.

The Korea Football Association announced on the 8th, “Brentford (England), Kim Ji-soo’s team, who was included in the 23 entries to participate in the final qualifying round for the Olympics, informed us that it was impossible to select the player due to team circumstances.”

As center back Kim Ji-su, who is over 190 cm tall, has been considered a key resource for the Olympic team’s defense, coach Hwang Seon-hong’s concerns have deepened.

Wing striker Yang Hyun-jun (Celtic), who was expected to be at the forefront of Hwang Seon-hong-ho’s attack, was also ultimately canceled on the 5th due to opposition from his team.

The Korea Football Association selected Kim Dong-jin of Pohang Steelers in the K-League 1 professional soccer league as Kim Ji-soo’s replacement.

Central midfielder Kim Dong-jin, born in 2003, joined Pohang ahead of this season and debuted on the professional stage for the first time.

Appeared in 2 games this season.

Kim Dong-jin leaves for Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE) this afternoon and joins Hwang Seon-hong’s training.

Meanwhile, midfielder Baek Sang-hoon (Seoul), whose joining was uncertain, overcame a knee injury and played as a member of Hwang Seon-hong.

Baek Sang-hoon received the opinion that he can join the team as a result of his medical checkup this morning, and headed to Dubai on a plane late that afternoon.

The U-23 national team, led by coach Hwang Seon-hong, will participate in the 2024 AFC U-23 Asian Cup, which opens in Doha, Qatar, on the 15th.

The 1st to 3rd place teams in this competition will advance directly to the 2024 Paris Olympics finals, and the 4th place team will go to Paris to play a continental playoff against Guinea, the 4th place team in the Confederation of African Football (CAF) qualifiers.

If Korean soccer wins a ticket to Paris, it will achieve the great feat of becoming the first in the world to advance to the Olympic finals for the 10th consecutive time.
