And in that time Son Heung-min's picked himself up a six week ankle ligament injury so he'll be missing. Han Sang-un of Busan has been called up in his place for what would be his first cap. He's currently fifth in the K-League scorer charts with 9 goals in 25 games.

I won't be going. But will be watching on the box. 4 or 5 nil win I reckon for Korean. Son Heung-min must start he can't stop scoring over in Germany.

Lebanon thumped 6-0 by South Korea in Asian qualifying match

BEIRUT: Lebanon’s Asian qualifying group stage got off to a sobering start after South Korea thrashed the Cedars 6-0 in Korea.

New Arsenal signing Park Chu Young scored a hat trick, while Ji Dong Won helped himself to a brace.

Kim Jung Woo scored Korea’s other goal.

Lebanon welcomed back captain Youssef Mohammad, who had initially retired from international football. The former Cologne defender, who has recently signed Emirati, said Al-Ahli brought back order to Lebanon’s defense but they were unable to hold back the irrepressible Koreans, who played a high-pressure, attacking game from the first whistle to the last.

The last time the two sides met in 2006 in Beirut, Lebanon were able to hold the 2002 World Cup semifinalists to a 1-1 draw, but much has changed since then.

Aside from Akram Moghrabi’s missed, off balance one-on-one chance in the dying moments, Lebanon never threatened the South Koreans’ goal, let alone their dominance.

Young opened the scoring after just eight minutes, taking the early wind out of Lebanon’s sails with a smart drive before doubling his tally ahead of the halftime whistle by heading in a corner from close range.

Lebanon came out in the second half trying to assert some kind of control and authority, knitting together the odd decent move, but South Korea’s strangling press put paid to any growing moves.

Sunderland’s new striker Don Won then gave Korea a three-goal cushion with a low drilled effort that flew past Ziad al-Samad in the Lebanon goal.

On 83 minutes, Lee Keun-Ho’s cross found the unmarked Kim who easily tapped home from close range to make it five.

Dong Won finished the scoring in the final minute.

Lebanon play the UAE Tuesday in Beirut.

Goals from the match
37,655 spectators saw that match at the Goyang Stadium

In the other group match Kuwait won 3-2 away to UAE.
They went 3-0 up after about an hour, but two very late goals from UAE added some respectability to the scoreline.

I wasnt concentrating on the game all that much as I was watching Aussie struggle against Thailand and the Athletics Championships but what I did see Korea were dominant and the scoreline reflected it.

Park Joo Young scored 3 goals that were all of great quality and Dong-Won another 2...so make that 5 for the premier league.
