Oh Hyun-kyu’s Celtic teammates, Kyogo Furuhashi and Leo Hatate, drew attention because they were not called up to the Japanese national team.
Scottish media ‘Celtic now and forever’ reported on the 17th (Korean time) that “the unbelievably harsh Celtic duo failed to join the national team.”
As the March A match period set by FIFA (International Football Federation) approached, national soccer teams summoned their national team players from all over the world.
South Korean striker Oh Hyun-kyu is also expected to join the national team after being called by new coach Jurgen Klinsmann ahead of the games against Colombia on the 24th and against Uruguay on the 28th.
Korea’s neighboring country, Japan, also announced a call-up list ahead of the two consecutive matches between Colombia and Uruguay, but Furuhashi and Hatate, who are teammates Oh Hyun-kyu and are doing well for Celtic, were not included in the call-up list.
Regarding this, the media responded that it was difficult to understand, saying, “Furuhashi and Hatate have an incredibly large influence within Celtic this season and have shown more than enough to be called up to the national team.” 토토사이트
The media said, “Furuhashi has been in 38 games in the 2022/23 season alone, scoring 26 goals and 5 assists, showing a terrifying appearance in front of the goal.”
“Celtic midfielder Hatate also played 37 matches, recording 8 goals and 9 assists,” he said.
Furuhashi, who was Celtic’s top scorer last season and leads the league in scoring with 20 goals in the 2022/23 season, is not being picked by manager Moriyasu despite his good performance.
Furuhashi has scored a lot of goals in Scotland so far, but he was unable to go to the World Cup as he was not included in the final list for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
