It is a bit disturbing isn't it?

We used to joke that the European torunaments would just stop as soon as the last British team was knocked out, because you couldn't find sight nor sound of further matches in the British media. The Continentals simply weren't smart enough to think of playing each other. Those days are long gone though.

Not at all related to the subject matter in hand, but one of the best Twitter accounts out there is @DMReporter. Just had to mention that.

Reminds me of the British Soccer Weekly I used to buy in the mid 90s. European news (inc results from European Cups as well as Euro & WC qualifiers) very much optional. To be fair, it was an Australian publication.

Korean football team vows to defeat Lebanon next Tuesday

In this context, Lee Chung-yong (27, Crystal Palace), who had experience in playing away matches in Lebanon, said, “It is a team that we can adequately defeat, but since we have (bad memories) from matches against Lebanon, we have to thoroughly prepare ourselves.” Korea last won an away match against Lebanon in the first qualifying match in May 1993 of the 1994 World Cup in the U.S., when it defeated the Middle East country 1-0. Lebanon has not been strong in home matches against all different teams. In the 29 A matches (nine wins, eight draws and 12 losses) that it played at its home turf since 2011, Lebanon has had more losses than wins. However, Team Korea has struggled in away matches in Lebanon due to rough grass conditions and ill-mannered fans who shoot laser light into the eye of enemy team players.

Spurred Koreans seek to exorcize ghosts in Lebanon

It's time to forget that. There are some ghosts that need to be exorcized in Beirut. Korea has played three World Cup qualifiers there this century and has failed to win any. The standout was the first meeting in the Lebanon capital in 2011 when the Taeguk Warriors were poor and lost 2-1. It cost Cho Kwang-rae his job. A return around 18 months later ended in a 1-1 tie that was fortunate in the sense that Kim Chi-woo's equalizer came with the last kick of a game, but it was one that the visitors dominated.
