Read on for a bit more deets.
Lee Chungyong didn’t play in 3-2 loss by Crystal Palace at the Hawthorns, but he made the bench. Palace were down early and Connor Wickham struck two late goals for hope but ultimately consolation. Maybe a little bit of Chungy is what Palace needs to get out of their rut? They haven’t won yet in the league in the new year…
Ki was largely anonymous as Swansea continues to struggle, while Son started for Spurs in their title charge. Had a big change 1v1 with the keeper but he shot it right on the netminder. Otherwise a solid shift from Son. Spurs are just two points off of the top, and have a 3 point cushion over Arsenal, who lost today to United (Marcus Rashford ftw).
Koo had a bright cameo appearance and had shots that started both Augsburg goals, but he had to came off because of calf problems. Hong is still injured and Ji never came on despite making bench.
Suk started and played full 90 for Porto at Belenenses. Relatively good game. Decent in the air, touches were good too, at times slightly over physical but that’s not such a big deal. Maybe had a fortuitous assist on the first goal, I honestly cannot tell, decide for yourself:
Also, Lee and Paik started for Juvenil A. Yun Sukyoung also started for Charlton.
MORE IMPORTANTLY! Korean Women’s National Team begin Olympic Qualifying tonight/today against North Korea. The women need to hit the ground running as they are by far the underdogs – only 2 berths up for grabs from Asia and they are widely considered outsides to nab it!
