‘National team debutant’ Ahn Hyun-beom quits the national team due to a shoulder injury…”3 to 4 weeks of stabilization required, replacement is X”
An unexpected injury forced him to drop out.
The Korea Football Association announced on the 17th that “Ahn Hyun-beom (28, Jeju United), who injured his right shoulder in a fall during the match against Peru, will be dropped from the national team for treatment.” Ahn was diagnosed with a shoulder joint sprain after the game and will reportedly need to rest for three to four weeks. He will not be replaced, the organization added.
Ahn made his national team debut against Peru on Sept. 16. He started at right back. He played about 85 minutes before being replaced by Nasangho in the 40th minute of the second half.메이저놀이터

As it was his debut, his nerves were evident. They frequently allowed opposing strikers to break through the flanks. In the 11th minute of the first half, he missed Brian Reina, which led to the goal.
After the game, Ahn expressed his disappointment with his performance. “I was very nervous, so I think I was frozen for the first 20 minutes of the game,” Ahn said in an interview.
Ahn has been on fire for Jeju this season. He has two goals and two assists in 17 appearances. He caught the eye of head coach Jürgen Klinsmann with his overlapping ability and was eager to continue his good form with the national team. However, an unfortunate injury cut him short.
Meanwhile, the national team will travel to Daejeon on June 20 to face El Salvador in their second friendly in June.
