Seoul: Korea Republic have named their final squad for next month’s AFC Women’s Asian Cup Jordan 2018, with a 23-strong playing list announced on Friday.


Head coach Yoon Duk-yeo made two changes to the playing group that finished equal seventh at this week’s Algarve Cup in Portugal, with Kim Do-yeon and Kim Hye-yeong replacing the injured Sim Dam-young and Shim Seo-yeon.



Chelsea star and Taegeuk Ladies all-time top scorer Ji So-yun headlines the squad, with the 27-year-old just one appearance away from becoming the fourth Korea Republic international to reach 100 caps.



Ji is one of five players who play their club football abroad, alongside newly Norwegian-based midfield leader Cho So-hyun, Melbourne Victory forward Jeon Ga-eul and INAC Kobe Leonessa duo Cho Ye-seul and Lee Min-a.

After reaching the semi-finals in 2014, Korea Republic have been drawn alongside Asia’s two-highest ranked teams – Australia (fourth) and Japan (ninth) – as well as 32nd-ranked Vietnam.
