World Cup Squad to Begin Training on Monday

National team manager Hong Myung-bo revealed his final 23-man roster for the upcoming World Cup on Thursday. He will summon the team on Monday for training, with some overseas players set to join later due to club duties.

"From May 21, when all players who are currently nursing injuries can join training, we will start on tactics," Hong said.

The team will face Tunisia in a friendly at Seoul World Cup Stadium on May 28. This will be the last international match held in Korea before the World Cup kicks off.

The squad will leave for Miami, Florida on May 30 for overseas training, and face Ghana in a final friendly on June 10. They will arrive in Foz do IguaƧu, their base in Brazil, on June 11, and begin their World Cup journey against Russia on June 17.
