Stielike shuffles South Korea strikers for qualifiers

Portugal-based forward Suk Hyun-jun was recalled to the South Korea squad for the first time in five years, with manager Uli Stielike hoping the 24-year-old can end their goal-scoring problems.

Suk, who begun his career with Dutch giants Ajax Amsterdam, last played for his country in a 2010 friendly against Iran but has impressed the German coach with his displays for Victoria Setubal having moved in January from domestic rivals Nacional.

Stielike, who led South Korea to the final of the Asian Cup in January, also gave a first call up to attacker Hwang Ui-jo of Seongnam FC for the Sept. 3 match at home to Laos and trip to Lebanon five days later.

South Korea won the East Asian Cup earlier this month but managed only three goals in three games against China, Japan and North Korea.

"I selected Suk and Hwang to address our goal-scoring issues," Stielike was quoted as saying by Yonhap News on Monday.

"They will be given their playing opportunities depending on how well they train with the rest of the team.

"We've had an eye on Hwang for a while. He used to be inconsistent before but he's become a steady player," he said of the 22-year-old who has notched 10 goals in 24 K-League appearances this season.

South Korea, who have appeared at the last eight consecutive World Cups, opened their joint Asian Cup qualifying campaign with a 2-0 win over Myanmar in June. They need to top a group also featuring Kuwait to guarantee progression to the next stage of qualifying for Russia 2018.

The Laos coach, Steve Darby, gave an interview a few days ago which can be read here:
These Football Times | Steve Darby: Integrity, honesty and inspiration

Elsewhere:
Korea convinced of victory against Laos in qualifier (John Duerden)

Steve Darby is the technical director of the Laos FA but such is the lack of funds at the federation, he is doubling up as head coach. The Englishman has years of experience in Asia but knows that this is going to be one of his biggest tests of his career.

Coach displeased with scheduling as S. Korea open camp for World Cup qualifiers

[...]The Korea Football Association (KFA) has said Son will not travel to Lebanon so that he can handle some administrative work in South Korea. Park is still in Germany and will only join South Korea for the Lebanon match. Koo had arrived here Sunday but left later the same evening to complete his transfer. He will not be in action against Laos and his status for Lebanon is doubtful.

With his established veterans on the sidelines, the chagrined Stielike took shots at FIFA.

Seems like he stopped moaning somewhat and is now focusing on the match. Though...

S. Korea coach hoping to see efficient offense in World Cup qualifier

Stielike will be without his main forward, Lee Jeong-hyeop, who suffered a facial fracture in a league match last week. The coach called Lee's absence "unfortunate" but said others will simply have to pick up the slack.

"Converting scoring chances has as much to do with individual skills as with mental elements, such as poise and patience around the net," Stielike said. "We work on that in practices, but since they aren't real game situations, there's only so much you can do in practices."

Didn't he blame the Korean schooling system for the "mental elements" earlier this year?

Taegeuk Warriors expected to top Laos

It is widely expected that Korea, ranked 54th according to FIFA, will have it easy against Laos, ranked 177th. The national squad has never lost to Laos in their last three encounters. Their most recent match was in April 2000 at the Asian Cup qualifiers, where Korea blanked Laos 9-0.

However, local football fans have recently been calling for the team to get more aggressive and start scoring some goals. Although Korea won the EAFF East Asian Cup last month, the team was criticized for not putting more numbers on the board.

Kwin Chang hoon was playing really well for Suwon, actually he was the only consistent performer in Suwon games lately. But I was surprised to see him in the squad, even more surprising was he started the game. He scored two goals and Son scored 3, so Son is taking all the headlines because of his recent move.

Happy with Kwon. Hope he gets a chance in Lebanon game.

South Korea 8 - 0 Laos
Kuwait 9 - 0 Myanmar

Those champions of international understanding and cooperation, the Daily Mail, surprisingly had a report with match facts including line-ups etc
Tottenham Hotspur new signing Son Heung-Min scores hat-trick as South Korea thrash Laos in World Cup qualifier

I no longer understand what is right and what is wrong in this world...



Sep 8
Laos v Kuwait
Lebanon v South Korea

Code: Select all

    Kuwait       2    2  0  0  10- 0  +10  6
    South Korea  2    2  0  0  10- 0  +10  6
    Lebanon      2    1  0  1   2- 1  +1   3
    Laos         3    0  1  2   2-12  -10  1
    Myanmar      3    0  1  2   2-13  -11  1


Healthy goal difference will help Korea to finish as one of the best (four) runners-up should they slip up and finish behind Kuwait.

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.
