Hwang Hyun-seok (Hent), a “second-choice attacking option” who started against Wales, will join Hwang Sun-hong for the Hangzhou Asian Games.

The Korea Football Association (KFA) announced on Aug. 8 that “Hong Hyun-seok,카지노who was called up to the A national team, has completed his transfer to the Asian Games squad and will return home after recovery training in Cardiff and join the training in Changwon on the evening of Sept. 9.”

Hong Hyun-seok, who was first called up to the national team in July’s A match and was a substitute in both matches, made his first career start in an A match. Starting on the right wing, Hong played 61 minutes before being replaced by Hwang Hee-chan (Wolverhampton) in the 16th minute of the second half.

Hong, who plays for Belgian professional soccer side Gent, scored his first and second Ligue 1 goals of the season last weekend to help his team to a 2-1 victory. It was Hong’s third goal of the season and second in the league. After scoring six goals and providing six assists in league play last season, Hong has two goals and two assists in league play this season.

Hong was also named to the final roster (22 players) of the Hangzhou Asian Games squad, coached by Hwang Sun-hong. However, instead of joining the Asian Games squad’s training camp in Changwon, Hong, who plays in Europe, was called up to the A team under Jürgen Klinsmann.

Klinsmann promised to support Hong’s call-up to the Asian Games squad when he announced the roster for the A match in September, and after the Wales match, he decided to invite Hong to join Hwang Sun-hong in Changwon.

The Asian Games squad began training in Changwon on Sept. 4 with less than full strength due to Lee Kang-in’s injury and the call-up of Hong Hyun-seok and Seol Young-woo to the A squad.
