New manager Uli Stielike has announced his first call ups for the games against Paraguay and Costa Rica.
Goalkeepers: Kim Seung-gyu (Ulsan), Kim Jin-hyeon (Cerezo Osaka)
Defenders: Kim Jin-su (Hoffenheim), Kim Young-gwon (Guangzhou Evergrande), Kim Ju-young (Seoul), Hong Chul (Suwon), Kwak Tae-hwi (Al Hilal), Cha Du-ri (Seoul), Kim Ki-hee (Jeonbuk), Lee Yong (Ulsan)
Midfielders: Ki Sung-yueng (Swansea), Park Jong-woo (Guangzhou R&F), Han Kook-young (Qatar SC), Nam Tae-hee (Lekhwiya), Lee Chung-yong (Bolton), Son Heung-min (Bayer Leverkusen), Koo Ja-cheol (Mainz), Park Joo-ho (Mainz), Lee Myeong-joo (Al Ain), Kim Min-woo (Sagan Tosu)
Forwards: Lee Dong-gook (Jeonbuk), Kim Seung-dae (Pohang)
As said, Lee Seung-woo and Park Chu-young failed to make the cut. Also missing out are Hong Jeong-ho, Ji Dong-won, and Kim Shin-wook. Hong and Ji have both recently recovered from injuries while Kim Shin-wook suffered one at the Asian Games.
Kim Seung-dae is the only uncapped member of the squad.
Broadly speaking, the squad is quite similar to the one called up against Venezuela and Uruguay.
