MORE ADVENTUROUS

South Korea national team manager Choi Kang-Hee has said that his team should play a little more adventurous football when they take on Lebanon in the second World Cup qualifying match in Goyang.

South Korea managed a very convincing 4-1 win over Qatar. As a result, they have gained strong foothold in the final qualification round. However, manager Choi Kang-Hee has said that the game against Lebanon will certainly not be as easy as the match against Qatar given that they are likely to play on the counter-attack and defend a lot.
