‘Thailand away’ on the 26th

Chung Hae-sung, chairman of the Korea Football Association’s power reinforcement committee, held a briefing on the third power reinforcement meeting at 4 p.m. on the 27th at the Gwanghwamun Football Center in Seoul.

Korea will play against Thailand in the second preliminary match of the Asian region for the 2026 FIFA North-Central American World Cup on March 21 (home) and March 26 (away). Hwang will lead two matches against Thailand.

“Hwang was the most preferred coach. He offered Hwang the temporary coach position on Saturday. After asking for time to think, Hwang conveyed his acceptance on Sunday. Hwang chose him as the first choice because he judged that Hwang showed achievements by leading the Olympic team to win the Asian Games, and that he has experience in international soccer and understanding of Asian soccer,” Chung said.

The Olympic team, led by head coach Hwang, will participate in the 2024 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Under-23 Asian Cup, which will also serve as the final qualifying round for the Asian region for the 2024 Paris Olympics in Qatar in April.

While he had to finish in the top three and qualify for the Olympics, he tried to take the final step in the West Asian Football Confederation (WAFF) U-23 Championship in Saudi Arabia from March 18-26.

However, as coach Hwang Sun-hong took charge of the A national team, there was a change in the management plan.

Hwang will announce the roster of the A-team that will play in the match against Thailand on Tuesday, before calling the team on Wednesday for the first time. He will play in Korea on Tuesday, before spending 16 days as an away coach for the national team on Tuesday. Hwang will organize a separate coaching staff during the team’s term.

While Hwang is in charge of the national team, the Olympic team will be led by the existing coaching staff. In the end, the WAFF U-23 Championship will be held without Hwang.
