1-6... that'll live a lot longer in the memory than a 0-1 or a 0-2 would ever have done so I suppose that's something. If Spain had actually tried then it could have been about 10 or 12, assisted throughout by Kim Jin-hyeon's comical goalkeeping efforts as well.

Now on to the Czechs and attempting to keep the aggregate goals conceded below 10.

Kim Jin-hyeon had looked pretty good so I understand why Uli had picked him but he spent most of the Spain game rooting around for the ball like he was looking for a dropped contact lens. I think that will put a huge question mark over him now.

Did I miss something on Kim Seung-gyu and why he wasn't included in the squad?

Suk Hyun-jun put in a fantastic shift against the Czechs on Sunday and I was also really impressed with Yoon Bitgaram, always had high hopes for him from when he broke through as a youngster and though his career kind of went off track when that forced transfer to Seongnam went ahead he seems to have got his act together.

Quite funny seeing Stielike shite it in the final minutes of the match and do all he could to time waste to hang on to the 2-1 lead against the ten men. Not a great performance, much improved from the game against Spain though, but I think these friendlies have only really served as a wake up call to anyone who thought Stielike was actually making progress with the squad when in fact he's really not (did anyone seriously think that anyway?). Fun trip though :)
