Thoughts on Cho's picks

South Korea coach Cho Kwang-rae turned his eyes to domestic talents after named a strong squad for the World Cup qualifier against Lebanon. The coach has brought on new faces. Without Bolton winger Lee Chung-yong (broken leg) and Wolfsburg midfielder Koo Ja-cheol (damaged left foot) and after the 3-0 defeat in Japan, Cho called up young forwards Ji Dong-won of Sunderland and Hamburg's Son Heung-min, both out in Sapporo game. Cho's plan seems to be to line up Ji Dong-won and Son Heung-min up front. The injuries are creating new spaces for young Korean talents such as Gyeongnam's Yoon Bit-Garam while Ulsan Hyundai's Kim Shin-wook is out. Another rising star is Suwon Samsung Bluewings' Yeom Ki-hun. "Yeom has been using his speed and has played some excellent games," Cho told. Cho went with proven players with international experience. Defense was a mess against Japan, so Cho hopes young defenders Jeju United's Hong Jeong-ho and Hong Chul could help the back line. K-Leaguers are hard workers and showed skills on the pitch so they deserved an extra look by Cho. And other talents are waiting for, from Pohang Steelers' defender Shin Kwang-Hoon to forwards Jeobunk Motors' Lee Dong-Gook and Kim Shin-Wook of Ulsan Hyundai. By the way, without Koo, Korea still has to fill the void left by Lee Chung-yong. FC Basel's Park Joo-Ho could be a player to take a look to.
