South Korea wants to improve

The South Korea football federation has unveiled a plan to will help improve the level of football in the country.

Ever since their good performance at the 2002 World Cup, the national team has been struggling to replicate the same performance in international competition.


Jungyu Lee is reportedly a South Korean fan that cycled from his country to Anfield for 235 days, covering 10,000 miles on his bike.

The football fan cycled that far but failed to hit his target of seeing the Reds in action as he missed the ticket. The dedicated fan is pictured in many blogs as a super fan that went all the way for the club.

The South Korean national football team are currently embarking on a quest to qualify to the FIFA World Cup for the 9th successive time as they have been consecutively been able to do it since 1986.

Out of the 4 opening 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifying match, South Korea tied with Syria, overcame China and Qatar while losing to Iran.


Son Heung-min has discussed the heartbreak he suffered during the Rio 2016 Olympics.

Son said it was a difficult time for him, but he came out stronger. The player moved from German side Bayer Leverkusen to Spurs for £22 million, but he struggled to show his best in Brazil in the colours of South Korea. When he joined he struggled to fit into the Spurs culture, and was almost set to return to Germany. Wolfsburg were particularly interested, but he remained.

The list was unveiled on Monday ahead of the final round of Asian qualifiers for Russia 2018.

The 21-man squad contains five players who were in action in Rio Olympics. FC Red Bull Salzburg player Hwang Hee-chan, Guangzhou R&F defender Jang Hyun-soo, Spurs playmaker Son Heung-min and Suwon Samsung Bluewings player Kwon chag-hoon.

Ki-Sung Yeung was unlucky

Ki-Sung Yeung was unlucky that just when he had struck form the previous season, he had to go back to his nation for his duty in the army.

He could have had another outing in the middle if the call hadn’t come and one more match winning contribution could have only helped him enhance his image in the eyes of the coach.

However, he, in any condition, had to follow the rule which makes army service a compulsion for all the men living in South Korea. The moment a man passes the age of eighteen, he has to give a certain amount of time to army every year until he gets past 30. The disobeying of the rule is bound to lead to punishment. There is just no escape from it, not even for the superstar players of the country without any regard to their profile.
