The Korea Football Association (KFA) today announced the final roster of the women’s youth national team for the 2024 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) U-17 Women’s Asian Cup. The U-17 Women’s Asian Cup will take place from May 6-19 in Bali, Indonesia.

The U-17 Women’s National Team, led by head coach Kim Eun-jung, qualified for the Asian Cup with an undefeated record in the qualifiers held in April and September last year. In January, the team traveled to Portugal to gain experience against European teams to prepare for the tournament.

The team, which has been training in Boeun, 카지노사이트 Chungcheongbuk-do, since the 15th of this month, will depart on the 30th.

The 23-player roster also includes Women’s National Team A standout Casey Eugene Fair (Angel City FC-17). Casey, who plays for the U.S. Women’s Professional League team, will join the squad just before the first group game against North Korea on May 6.

In addition to Casey, all of the existing core members of the squad will return, including Kwon Da-eun and Won Ju-eun (Ulsan Hyundai High School), who gained experience with the A team last year, and Beom Ye-joo (Gwangyang Girls’ High School). Eighteen players were born in 2007, four in 2008, and the only 2009-born player is Hankook Hee (Ulsan Hyundai Cheongwoon), who was featured in “Golden Eleven,” a program co-produced by the Korea Football Association and tvN to discover promising football talent.

The AFC U-17 Women’s Asian Cup was founded in 2005 and is held every two years. Eight teams will compete in the tournament, with the top three qualifying for the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup in the Dominican Republic in October.

South Korea’s previous best finish at the U-17 Asian Cup was in 2009, when Yeo Min-ji, Lee Kum-min, and Jang Seul-ki led the team to the title. The team went on to win the 2010 FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup, the first FIFA-organized tournament in South Korean soccer history.

South Korea will open Group A play on June 6 against North Korea, followed by host Indonesia on June 9 and the Philippines on June 12. If they finish second, they will play the semifinals against a team from Group B, which includes Japan, Australia and China.
