    National football team manager Shin Tae-yong on Monday unveiled the roster for a pre-World Cup training camp in Turkey.

    The 24-man roster consists of footballers playing in either Korea or Asia. It excludes those playing in Europe, as they cannot make it to the training session, which is not included in the official international match calendar.

    National football team manager Shin Tae-yong talks to reporters at a press conference in Seoul on Monday.

    Kim Young-gwon of Guangzhou Evergrande was selected again, along with Hong Chul and Son Jun-ho, who were included in the roster for the first time since Shin took the helm.

    Players will train in Turkey for two weeks starting from next week and stay there until Feb. 4.

    While in Turkey they will play friendly matches against Moldova, Jamaica and Latvia.
