Lee Called Up For South Korea Squad

3 June 2015

Crystal Palace midfielder Chung-yong Lee has been called up to the South Korea squad for their upcoming games against the UAE and Myanmar.

The winger will get the chance to add to his 65 caps for his country when the Reds take on UAE in a friendly ahead of their World Cup qualifier in Myanmar on 16th June.

It will be his first appearance for his country since he injured himself in their opening game of the 2015 Asian Cup, a tournament that Korea reached the final of before losing to Mile Jedinak's Australia side.

After battling back from that setback, the 26-year-old went on to play four times for Palace in the Premier League after making his debut in the game against Hull City in April.

Lee is one of 10 players at the club who has been called up for international duty over the coming weeks, including Adelene Guedioura who has been recalled to the Algeria squad for their Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Seychelles on 13th June.
