Setter and libero missing, ‘excluding Kim Dae-in and Shin Yeon-kyung’, Week 2 14-player roster revealed

There’s a change. Setter Kim Da-in (Hyundai E&C) and libero Shin Yeon-kyung (IBK) have been left out of the Korea Women’s National Team’s roster for Week 2 of the FIVB Volleyball Nations League (VNL) 2023.

Korea is currently in Brasilia, Brazil, preparing for four matches in Week 2 of the VNL. In Week 1, they travelled to Turkiye and lost all four games 0-3. The team suffered straight-set losses against Turkiye, Canada, USA, and Thailand.

The team was without setter Kim Ji-won (GS Caltex) and outside hitter Kim Da-eun (Heungkuk Life) for Week 1. 메이저사이트

Korea used a mix of setters Yeom Hye-sun (KGC Ginseng Corporation) and Kim Dae-in in Week 1, starting libero Shin Yeon-kyung first and then bringing in Moon Jung-won. Outside hitter Moon Jung-won (Korea Expressway Corporation) made the team as a libero this year.

The roster for Week 2 has also been released. According to the FIVB official website, Kim Dain and Shin Yeon-kyung were not included. Kim Ji-won and Kim Da-eun, who were excluded in Week 1, were included. There is only one libero in the 14-player roster for Week 2. Moon Jung-won’s role has become more important. Kim Dae-eun started against the United States and Thailand and played a more central role. The synergy between Yeom Hye-sun and Kim Ji-won is needed. All eyes will also be on Kim Ji-won, who will be making her international debut.

Existing setter Yeom Hye-sun, outside hitter Park Jung-ah (Pepper Savings Bank), Kang So-hwi (GS Caltex), Pyo Seung-ju (IBK), Kim Mi-yeon (Heungkuk Life), Jeong Ji-yoon (Hyundai E&C), middle blockers Lee Ju-ah (Heungkuk Life) and Park Eun-jin, Jung Ho-young (KGC Ginseng Corporation), Lee Da-hyun (Hyundai E&C), apogee Moon Ji-yoon (GS Caltex) and libero Moon Jung-won will also be in action in Week 2 of the VNL.

Korea will open their campaign in Brasilia against hosts Brazil. They will then face Japan, Croatia, and Germany. They will then return home to face Bulgaria, the Dominican Republic, China, and Poland at home in Suwon.

South Korea is currently ranked 15th out of 16 teams in the tournament. Croatia is at the bottom of the table. South Korea’s FIVB ranking is 26th. Croatia, ranked 30th in the FIVB rankings, will be the next opponent in Week 2.
