Lee Included In South Korea Squad

16 March 2016

Chung-yong Lee has been called up for South Korea's latest squad for their games against Lebanon and Thailand.

The Eagles winger will have the chance to add to his 70 international caps during next week's international break, although he heads off safe in the knowledge that the Reds are already assured of their spot in the next round of the AFC qualification campaign.

Having won all six of their previous group games and assuring a top-spot finish, Korea will be hoping to continue their 100% record against Lebanon on Thursday 24th March in Ansan, having beaten them 3-0 in the away game back in September.

Three days after that Lee's side travel to Thailand for a friendly in Bangkok, who could be a potential opponent in the next round of qualifiers as they also currently sit atop their group.

Lee is one of two Premier League-based players included in Uli Stielike's squad, with the other being Swansea City midfielder Ki Sung-Yeung.
