    Hi I’m a fan of your great show in South Korea.
    I would like to add some informations of South Korea Football team.

    1. Important players
    a. Park Ji-Sung (Man.Utd) Midfilder
    Most Important player. Energetic.
    b. Park Chu-Young (AS Monaco) Striker
    Creative Striker, Good at set piece, Very calm
    c. Ki Sung-Yong (Celtic) Midfielder (Center)
    Good pass.
    d. Lee Chung-Yong (Bolton) Midfielder (Right)
    Fast and decent skill.
    Except Park Ji-Sung, 3 players were in the same team previously so their teamwork is very good.

    2.Expectations
    Most of the Koreans think we have a good chance to pass the group stage. But the fact that South Korea have no wins in World Cup with native manager weakens our confidence.

    3.Team Style
    South Korea is really good at pressing. Most of the midfielders are very energetic and devoting. Enjoys side attack and good at counterattack. Have trouble with opponents which are defensive and allow little space on sides.

    4.Recent Issues
    Good result in qualification and friendly match.
    4wins 4 draws in Final Qualification Round
    0:0 draw VS Denmark
    0:1 lose VS Serbia
    2:0 win VS Côte d’Ivoire
    2:0 win VS Ecuador
    2:0 win VS Japan
    But important players are not in good condition these days.
    Park Chu-Young is just recovered from injury.
    Ki Sung-Yong is missing games in Celtic.

    So it is hard to say South Korea can pass the group stage or not.
    I think it will be clear when the friendly match with spain(june 3) is over.

    Thanks for reading.
    And sorry with my bad English.

    P.S :
    Really Entertaining Player to watch
    Cha Du-Ri (SC Freiburg), Right Back
    Physical is like a tank. Fast like a wind.
    But poor skills.

    Check this video how he knocks out japan defenders LoL :-)

      Thanks for your feedback. I responded to it at the end of the podcast which will be our Tuesday, my interview with Grant Wahl. I think I’m higher on South Korea’s chances than you are!
