GOOD PERFORMANCE

South Korea manager Hong Myung-bo has revealed that he is happy with the performance of his players despite his team suffering a 2-1 defeat against Russia in a friendly match. This defeat means that South Korea have managed just four wins since July of this year.

This run of matches will undoubtedly put a lot of pressure on Hong Myung-bo, but he is staying confident. The match started in the best possible fashion for Korea after they took the lead in the sixth minute through Shin-Wook Kim.

PARK SHOULD MOVE

South Korean national team manager Myung-Bo Hong has said that Arsenal player Park Chu-young should decide to move away from the club and find a new club immediately if he is to feature for the national team in the World Cup.

Park Chu-young was a high-profile signing for Arsenal in 2011, but many predicted that he was brought into the club only to sell more shirts in Asia. It has proven to be right because he has rarely featured for the Arsenal first team. He is regarded as the country's number one striker, which has put Hong in a difficult position.

Chelsea in the Premier League

Chelsea are the popular choice among punters for the Premier League title as fans reminisce on Jose Mourinho’s former successes and believe the Special One – or Happy One, as he now likes to be known – is ready to do it all again. Mourinho won two titles plus the FA Cup during his reign at Stamford Bridge and few fans doubt he doesn’t have the ability and resources to repeat these feats.

QUARTER FINALS

South Korea has made its way into the quarter final round of the U-20 World Cup by defeating Colombia in a nail biting encounter yesterday at Huseyin Avni Aker Stadium. The match got decided through penalty shootouts.

It was really one cracker of a contest. Both the teams put in 100% effort on the ground and provided some great entertainment to the spectators who were out there in the stadium.

IRAN LOSS

South Korea recently suffered a 1-0 defeat against Iran in the World Cup qualifying, which threatened to derail their hopes of qualifying for the FIFA World Cup 2014 in Brazil. However, they managed to get their campaign back on track with a 2-1 win over Qatar on Tuesday night.

There was a lot of pressure on the South Korea manager Kang-Hee Choi after the team had managed no wins in the last four matches. This includes two World Cup qualifying matches without a victory. However, this win over Qatar means that they are just one point behind leaders Uzbekistan.

TOUGH RUN

South Korea have been going under a tough run of form, which has raised questions about the manager Choi Kang-hee. Korea have qualified for the World Cup in the last seven consecutive occasions.

However, they are in danger of failing to qualify for the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil due to a bad run of form, which has seen them go without a victory in the last four matches. Even though two of them have been friendly matches against Australia and Croatia, there has been a lot of scepticism about the quality of the team.

GIVE HIM HIS MEDAL

The South Korean national team manager Hong Myung-bo is of the opinion that Park Jong-woo should be allowed to get his bronze medal as a result of South Korea lifting the medal at the London Olympics 2012 football tournament.

The South Korean national team was not one of the favourites to win the gold medal, but they did well at the competition to lift the bronze medal. However, the player Park Jong-woo has not been allowed to receive his medal by the country after he voiced his opinions about the territorial problems between South Korea and Japan.
