Before we trot out the short list of games, do check out Jae’s recent post – he deconstructs tactics Korea used to in their World Cup warmup victory over Greece. Champions League action in Europe and Asian Champions League happening as well + English Championship midweek…let’s go to Asia first:
Asian Champions League group stage matches (all times US EST)
Tuesday March 11
Buriram United vs Pohang Steelers 7:00 am
Beijing vs FC Seoul 7:30am
Wednesday March 12
Melbourne Victory vs Jeonbuk 4:30 am
Ulsan Hyundai vs Kawasaki Frontale 6:30 am
and to Europe where we’ll take a look at what Korean Footballers Abroad has listed:
“Lee Chung Yong and Bolton go to Derby County at 3:45 PM ET Tuesday. He came on as a sub and may remain on the bench while the Wanderers are on a good run. No TV.
Park Chu Young and Watford go to Doncaster Rovers at 3:45 PM ET Tuesday. No TV.
Son Heung Min and Leverkusen go to Paris, already down 0-4 to PSG. 3:30 PM on Fox Sports 2 on Wednesday. Son along with most of Leverkusen played poorly. With advancing in CL unlikely, perhaps Hyypia will rest Son for the weekend where they are now struggling to maintain CL qualification and are very thin out wide after Hegeler got injured (out for season).”
– Korean Footballers Abroad: midweek listings
Not sure how big of a tournament this is, but the Korean women just got 3rd in the Cyprus Women’s Cup. They beat Scotland in the 3rd place game in a game that went to penalties. http://www.cypruswomenscup.net/#!fixtures/c1nhz
