After a shambolic display on Friday night in Jeonju, Shin Tae-yong wasted no time finalizing his 23-man roster for the World Cup in Russia by releasing the three dropped players on Saturday morning in Korea. Our friend Steve Han broke the news. Brace yourselves!
Kim Jin-su, Lee Chung-yong and Kwon Kyung-won have been removed from Korea’s final 23 roster for the World Cup. #knt

In my opinion, this makes absolutely no sense for many reasons. However, I think it will be much more interesting to have that discussion in the comments. For now, I will share an updated look at the current depth chart available to Shin Tae-yong to emphasize why this move makes little sense, if any.
Kim Seung-gyu (his spot could be in danger after that display in Jeonju)
Ju Se-jong (Although I am on the Ju SJ hype train and want him at #2)
That is the squad we take to Russia. Shin Tae-yong has made his bed. Now he will be forced to lie in it. Discuss in the comments below. We’ll be right down there with you! Courage!
