The International Football Federation (FIFA) announced the final squads of the 24 countries participating in the FIFA U-20 World Cup, which opens in Argentina on the 20th. All 24 participating countries filled the maximum number of 21 players.

On the 12th (Korean time), FIFA announced the final list of 504 players for the U-20 World Cup. Korea, which belongs to Group F, was confirmed without change in the final list of 21 players announced by the Korea Football Association on the 5th. Bae Jun-ho (Daejeon Hana Citizen), who played a big role in the K-League 1 recently along with Europeans Kim Yong-hak (Portimonense), Kang Seong-jin (FC Seoul), and Kim Jun-hong (Kim Cheon Sang-mu), was also called by coach Kim Eun-joong to step on the stage of the finals.

Korea, which belongs to Group F, will compete against France, Honduras and Gambia to advance to the round of 16. France included striker Alan Virginius, who scored 1 goal in 14 Ligue 1 matches for Lille this season. Honduras consists of players who all play in their home league except for Jeremy Rodas (Minnesota United) and David Ochoa (Inter Miami) who play in MLS. Gambia midfielder Mahmoud Bajo will compete in the World Cup without a current team.

Argentina, the favorite and the host country, was canceled due to the opposition of his team, Alejandro Garnacho (Manchester United). During the competition, Manchester United must do their best to secure 4th place, with the right to participate in the UEFA (European Football Federation) Champions League next season. In addition, the FA Cup final against rivals Manchester City was scheduled, so Garnacho’s selection was finally rejected. Midfielder Federico Redondo (Argentino Junior) is the son of Fernando Redondo, an Argentine legend who embroidered the 1990s. Redondo, like his father, wears the number 5 shirt and plays as a defensive midfielder.토스카지노

Brazil, another favorite to win the championship, will feature the best squad except for players who failed to participate due to injury or were not selected due to their team’s rejection, such as Kaiki Fernandez (Almeria). Matteus Martins, who plays for Watford in the English Championship, and striker Marcos Leonardo, who has already scored 42 goals in 141 games for Brazil’s Santos FC at the age of 20, are considered players to keep an eye on.
