Chung-Yong Lee earns South Korea World Cup Qualifying call-up

Michael Steele

Over the last few games, Chung-Yong Lee has really kicked into first gear. He is, more often than not, showing the brilliance that made him such a highly rated player prior to the leg break he suffered just before the 2011/2012 season. It was a very long road to full fitness for Chungy but based on his performances, the winger of old is back.

South Korea's head coach, Choi Kang-Hee, has been keeping an eye on Chung-Yong Lee's progress. Based on recent performances (and just how good they have been), the coach decided that the Bolton Wanderers winger has deserved another call up to the South Korean men's national team for their World Cup Qualifier against Qatar. The match will be played on 26 March at the Seoul World Cup Stadium. The match comes in the middle of an international break with the Charlton and Ipswich Town matches on either side of it.

Should Chungy actually make an appearance, it will be his 44th. He'll join 22 other national team members including Yun Suk-Young, Son Heung-Min, and Ki Sung-Yueng for the match. South Korea are currently second in their World Cup 2014 Qualifying group, a point behind Uzbekistan but they have a game in hand. Their opponents, Qatar, are in fourth place but are level on points with South Korea and Iran.
