Watched the game last night. Korea missed a hat full of chances and should of have put Peru out of sight! Yoon Il Lok the main culprit. But Lee Keun ho missed an absolute sitter in the second half. Shocking miss.

Spoke to a colleague who finished early and went to the game, he said they were decent actually, but just missed a lot of chances. I agree with SaintsCanada, I'd love to see Korea actually pick and play a real squad i.e. all the best players. Can't remember the last time that happened

How was Kim Seung-Gyu in the goalpost for Korea Republic?

I've been at all of Hong's first four matches and Korea have been the better side in all each (although Japan probably played a much smarter game than Korea in the EA Cup-decider). In every game, particularly in the first halves, they've been the better side and been denied by combination of poor finishing and great goalkeeping in all the games. I'd agree that Yoon has been most culpable, but I think he's looked the best attacking player under Hong.

Last night was no different. Yoon missed several decent chances and Lee KeunHo had one headed off the line. Lee then missed the best chance in the second half, but it did take a wonderful reaction save to stop. Pohang's Cho also missed a great opportunity. As for Kim SeungKyu, I'm surprised it took this long to take a look at another goalkeeper because, while I'm a fan of JSR, I think he can look like giving up a goal in a tight game. Kim didn't look like the best distributor, but was solid enough and pulled an absolutely remarkable save to deny Pizarro late-on.

It definitely seems to me like there's been progress already under Hong and I agree that it'll be interesting to see what happens when he gets his hands on all the European lads, particularly as he's worked with so many already. My only fear is the persistance with a 'typical number 9.' Kim DongSub is having a good season, but I'm not sure he's good enough to play at a World Cup. I like Kim ShimWook, but I think he's been tarnished by the role he played under the old regime. To be honest, I don't know why they bother. With such a good crop of mobile forwards- Lee K H, Lee C Y, Son H M, Ji D W- why not and just keep the big men as a Plan B?

We don't know which way he'll go though, as all of the forwards you listed haven't been involved yet save Lee KH, and he's playing in the domestic 2nd flight (not due to lack of quality, but nevertheless). I would be a bit surprised if Son or Ji aren't first-choice when available (and playing regular club football).

But to be honest, I have faith in Kim S.W. I think he's become a very good player -- except when he's cheating my club team out of 2 points. ;)
