Coach Hwang Sun-hong’s new challenge will soon begin. 토토 The draw ceremony for the 2024 AFC U-23 Asian Cup finals, which will also serve as the preliminary round for the 2024 Paris Olympics, will be held on November 23.
AFC announced that it will hold the draw ceremony for the 2024 AFC Qatar U-23 Asian Cup finals at 4 p.m. on November 23rd, which will be held in Qatar from April 15th to May 3rd next year. South Korea easily won the ticket to the finals by winning all two games in the regional qualifying group B in Changwon in September. At that time, the team lost to Qatar 0-2 and criticized Hwang very much, but the defeat was omitted from the regional preliminary match because Qatar was eligible to play early as the host country of the finals.
South Korea, along with Australia, Iraq and Vietnam, will be in Port 2, waiting for the draw for the finals. This is a port allocation that reflects the results of the 2022 AFC Uzbekistan U-23 Asian Cup finals. At that time, Korea failed to be allocated Port 1 in this tournament due to a 0-3 defeat by Japan in the quarterfinals. Port 1 was home to Saudi Arabia, Uzbekistan, and Japan, the top three teams in the last Uzbekistan tournament, including the host country Qatar.
The members of the Qatar U-23 Asian Cup are not the generation who won the gold medal in men’s soccer at the recently closed 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games. Coach Hwang said, “The U-22 representative will participate in the tournament. Um Ji-sung, Jo Wi-je, and Hong Yoon-sang participated in regional preliminary matches in September.
