It has been revealed that some members of the national soccer team competing in the 2023 Qatar Asian Cup and an administrative staff member of the Korea Football Association (KFA) gambled on cards for money during a training camp leading up to the tournament.

According to the soccer world on the 13th, it was revealed that some players of the national team and an employee of the Korea Football Association dispatched to Qatar played cards for money at their accommodation during a training camp in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, from January 2-10, just before the Qatar Asian Cup (January 13-February 11), and the 카지노사이트 KFA is investigating the matter.

The players played cards until dawn with chips worth between 100 and 5,000 won. The number of players involved in the gambling was said to be four to five, but it was not specified.

The federation, which became aware of the incident late, does not believe that large sums of money were involved, but it is taking the matter seriously as it happened during the tournament and will conduct further investigations.

Earlier, the team was denied a spot in the final after suffering a shock 0-2 loss to Jordan in the semifinals of the Asian Cup on Feb. 7.

It was later revealed that there was a physical altercation between captain Son Heung-min (Tottenham) and youngest player Lee Kang-in (Paris Saint-Germain) on the evening of Feb. 6, the day before the match.

According to foreign reports, the young players, including Lee Kang-in, who had finished dinner early, were playing table tennis and got into an argument with Son Heung-min, who restrained them, dislocating his finger in the process.

As the ‘Ha Kuk Sang controversy’ spread, Lee posted on his social networking service (SNS) on March 21 that he had traveled to London and apologized to Son Heung-min.

Son Heung-min also shared a photo of himself and Lee Kang-in together.
