With the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup Australia-New Zealand just nine days away, 736 players have been confirmed for the tournament.
The youngest of them is South Korea’s Casey Eugene Fair, who was born to an American father and Korean mother.
“All 32 teams competing at the Women’s World Cup have named their final 23-man rosters,” FIFA said in a press release on Nov. 11.
Of the 736 players listed, Fair is the youngest. No other player was born in 2007.
At 16 years, 1 month, she also holds the record for being the youngest player in South Korean soccer history to play in a World Cup after Jang Dae-il was named to the final roster for the 1998 Men’s World Cup in France.
She broke the record of Park Eun-sun (16 years, 9 months), who played in the 2003 World Cup in the United States 20 years ago while still in high school. 토토사이트
