It's on Bet365 on the internet.

Denmark Norway finished 1-1 in a very dull game.

I was reading before the game that Hong Myung-bo didn't place too much on the result and it was more important to get as many players as possible a run out in the build up to the Olympic qualifier in Saudi next month. Well, they wound up winning 3-1 in the end although using five subs - some rather late in the game so Hong wasn't being entirely honest, although the subs and the change from one up to two up front made all the difference. Meanwhile, Morten Olsen was saying before the Denmark match that he was really pleased with the players' physical condition and then they ended up playing like of bunch of guys who'd just flown half-way round the world from Scandinavia in the January off-season to play in 30 degree heat in Bangkok. A couple of changes from the line-up given above according to Sportal Korea;

김승규(GK) - 윤석영, 김영권, 김기희(87' 홍정호), 정동호(90+1' 오재석) - 한국영, 박종우 - 조영철(57' 백성동), 김민우, 김태환(58' 서정진) - 김동섭(71' 김현성) / 감독: 홍명보

Thailand are the only team who have their full national team in the tournament and are also the only team with all their players based in their home county. They can still get through to the final round of 2014 World Cup qualifiers if they get a result in Oman.

Thailand were prett good against Australia, they led 1 nil for a long stretch of the game.

Korea did it pretty easy though and butchered some great chances while still winning well.

The games agaisnt Norway and Denmark should be interesting.

The Thai coach, German Winfried Schaefer, was complaining that his team wasn't fit enough to match the Koreans. And what counts as a thrilling encounter for the Bangkok Post counts as a "Nordic long-yawner" for sports journalists in Denmark http://www.bangkokpost.com/news/sports/275295/thailand-have-no-answers-as-south-korea-win

The Danish physio was saying how the Danish players lost around one and a half kilos (3pounds?) during the game against Norway and this is perfectly normal! It's less than 3% of body weight for most of them and this is the recommended maximum to lose in one workout. Still, it's sweating enough to fill three pint glasses, most of which just sticks to your clothes in near 100% humidity and that's just the net loss after all the water you drink to try to keep hydrated.

I never really understood why someone would want to go and live in somewhere like Bangkok. I'd miss going outside and feeling comfortable far too much. The only time I was there it was raining most of the time I was walking around, which was great until it stopped. Probably the only place I've ever been where I didn't want it to stop raining. If it stopped raining in Hanover once in a while we'd all be a lot better off.

The winner of Korea-Norway will win the tournament. I only saw the first half of Denmark-Korea, Denmark bossed it for the first 20 minutes but Korea came more and more into the game and had a few decent chances. One Danish paper was raving how they were denied an obvious penalty and the win in the second half. Jores Okore is still a long way from international standard.
