With the Asian Cup over, Stielike will now have the time to plan friendlies and a proper route for Korean football as a whole. While we were sitting in our beds furious after a scrappy Australian goal in ET, some of our Taeguk Warriors were already in Europe training and playing with their respective clubs.

*Some rumours that Real Madrid are interested in Lee Seung-Woo have been circulating around the Spanish media.
*Park Chu-Young and Kim Bo-Kyung are still looking for clubs.
Tavern Owner interrupting: I got to tune into the last 20 minutes of the Augsburg / Hoffenheim game – Ji looked fairly decent in his first Bundesliga game of the season. He nearly scored when Hoffenheim’s keeper wasn’t able to clear the ball properly. Ji was lurking nearby and tried to pounce on the gaffe, but was a millisecond too late. Augsburg is even on points with 4th place Schalke, goal difference separating the two clubs.
