  1. Thats a solid squad! Im glad he included Ji Dong Won and Son Heung Min! Rising stars of Asia ~ FIGHTING AGAIN 2002 LOL but still Park Ji Sung and Lee Chung Yong :( they’re so vital to their club squads and in top form … I guess that means we better win the cup!

  2. We have really awesome players but i still think we NEED othen coach.. CHO please make me eat my words by getting this cup¡¡¡ Park please do your best if this is your last performance in the national team

    If South Korea can’t win AFC Cup with this squad this time, then they can never win…
