Korea Republic may have qualified for their seventh consecutive world finals, but it was not without a series of lacklustre performances. The most consistent team in the region for the last two decades fell short when they finished with two goalless draws against their neighbours Korea DPR. The North Koreans proved to be their worthy counterpart when they once again held the Taeguk warriors to a 1-1 stalemate. However, the bounced back in emphatic style with wins over United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia, before a crucial 1-1- draw with Iran sealed set up the deciding matches. A 1-0 win at home in the Korean derby followed and then a similar win against the UAE accomplished their mission.
Key roles in the starting 11 will rest on the appointment of Huh Jung-Moo, with the captaincy going to Manchester United Winger Pak Ji-Sung. And then there is forward Park Chu-Young, widely tipped to solve the problem of goal scoring. The Monaco marksman will be looking to make good on his disappointing showing in Germany 2006, by hitting the mark in South Africa 2010. Now, with much needed experience under his belt, the 24 year-old will be looking to showcase his maturity.
Interesting factoid about coach Huh Jung-Moo is that he scored a goal against Italy at Mexico 1986 and took part in Italy 1990 and USA 1994 as a fitness coach and assistant coach, respectively. Certainly a case of nurtured talent, the man who has worked under the influence of Dutch nationals Guus Hiddink and Dick Advocaat will inadvertently be leading by his own example, as the Taeguk Warriors take the field in 2010.
