Son Jun-ho (31-Shandong Taishan) is unlikely to make the squad.

The South Korean national soccer team, led by Jürgen Klinsmann, announced its 23-man roster on Friday morning ahead of a pair of friendly A matches in June. South Korea will play Peru and El Salvador on June 16 and 20 in Busan and Daejeon, respectively.

Klinsmann called up Son Jun-ho as one of 10 midfielders. Son has been detained by Chinese authorities for three weeks now. A senior Korean Football Association (KFA) official and a lawyer traveled to China to meet with Son, but no meaningful meetings were held.

Klinsmann said, “I am heartbroken by Son’s current situation. We are doing everything we can at the KFA level. I know the KFA has traveled to China to discuss it. I don’t know exactly what his situation is right now. I miss his performance in the A match in March. I hope he returns home safely.”

He was added to the roster because he wasn’t sure if he would make the team. “I wanted him to know that I’m behind him 100%,” Klinsmann said. The roster may change when we convene next week,” Klinsmann said, emphasizing that “this is not a 100% confirmation.”메이저사이트

On the same day, a KFA official said, “The KFA lawyer who traveled to China to meet with Son Jun-ho returned home today. He was unable to meet with Son. The Chinese lawyer was reluctant to meet with the KFA.” Considering that the national team will be called up in 12 days, it seems unlikely that Son will be able to join the A-Match squad in June.
