      The German club declined to release the 19-year-old forward for the tournament, which kicks off in Poland on May 23, as the tournament's dates overlap with the club's crucial match schedules.

      Jeong spent the majority of the season playing for the reserve squad Bayern Munich II, which competes in the fourth-tier Regionalliga Bayern. The club will play two crucial playoff matches on May 22 and 26 that could see it promoted to the third-tier league.

      Jeju United defender Lee Kyu-hyuk was called up to replace him.
