E’ Pak Nam Chol, stella della nazionale coreana, il prossimo rinforzo per i thailandesi del Muangthong United, secondo il sito http://www.goal.com.
Con Pak sono due le stelle coreane della formazione campione di Thailandia, oltre a Ri Kwang Chon.
Sempre nel Muangthong sono tessarati Choe Kum Chol (in fase di recupero da un infortunio) e Ri Myong Jun (quest’anno al Thai Port).
Eliminata al primo turno la nazionale under-19 nel Campionato asiatico di categoria.
A costare caro è il 2-0 contro l’Uzbekistan, che sommato alla scontata vittoria giordana contro il Vietnam, elimina i coreani, detentori del torneo.
Qualificati invece uzbeki e giordani.
A decidere sono le reti di Sergeev 79′ (pen.) e Khakimov 85′.

An Ye Gun punta gran parte del passaggio del turno in questa sfida, giocando soprattutto sul numero di gol segnato ai vietnamiti,
spinge i suoi all’attacco e alla fine ha ragione: con il 5-0 i coreani superano l’Uzbekistan (che aveva battuto 4-0 i vietnamiti) e ora può giocare con più tranquillità l’ultima sfida, sperando anche che i vietnamiti non subiscano una sconfitta con più di 4 reti di vantaggio.
