    Retired footballer Park Ji-sung has been included in FIFA's squad of "superheroes" to promote this year's Women's World Cup which kicks off in early June in France. FIFA said on Friday that 23 footballers from around the world had been selected based on what it called their distinctive "superpowers."

    Former midfielder Park, who retired in 2014, was noted for his remarkable endurance levels, which earned him the nickname "Three Lungs Park."

    The so-called " FIFA Legend Squad" is made up of 13 women and 10 men from 20 of the countries that will participate in the tournament. They will attend nearly 100 events around the world and promote women's football during the tournament.
