Midfielder Hong Hyun-seok (24, Hent) has been withdrawn from the squad with a slight stress fracture. Park Jin-seop, a gold medalist at the Hangzhou Asian Games, will take his place.
“Hong Hyun-seok felt discomfort in his left shin area before the official training on the 15th and went to the hospital for an examination, which revealed a microfracture in his left tibia,” the Korea Football Association said on Saturday.
“Although the injury is not serious enough to prevent him from exercising, the national team medical team decided to cancel the call-up to prevent further injury and give him a rest, based on the judgment of the national team medical team that fatigue fractures are important to manage initially,” the statement continued. 바카라사이트
