Celtic forward Hyeongyu Oh has been called up to the South Korea squad for two friendly matches at the dn of this month.

The 21-year-old, who joined the Hoops in January, has been selected by his new international manager Jurgen Klinsmann.

The legendary former Germany forward has recently been appointed to lead the country’s charge towards the Asian Cup and next World Cup in 2026.

And he has selected the Hoops star alongside the likes of Tottenham Hotspur superstar Son Heung-Min in his first squad.

Oh has mostly played as back-up to top scorer Kyogo Furuhashi but has impressed anytime he has been called upon including two goals, against St Mirren and Aberdeen, and a League Cup final cameo in the win over Rangers.

He has made nine appearances so far for Celtic with only one being from the start thanks to the red hot form of Japan forward Kyogo who will find out if he has been reinstated to the Samurai Blue squad on Wednesday.

South Korea will play Colombia in Ulsan on March 24 before taking on Uruguay four days later in another home tie.

Oh has one full international cap and missed out on the 25-man squad for the World Cup in Qatar at the end of last year.
