Using the Wu-Yang global gauge description, the minimal gauge group is found which compactifies the extra even D dimensions into a sphere, namely SO(2N). These gauge theory solutions are associated with non-vanishing topological charges. An SO(2N) gauge theory solutions is obtained in D = 2N + 1 dimensions which describes a generalized singular magnetic monopole which conforms to the Yang definition.
