Lee Selected For South Korea

3 November 2016

Palace winger Chung-yong Lee has been called up for South Korea's matches with Canada and Uzbekistan next week.

Lee, who has played in all-but one league and cup matches for the Eagles so far this season, will link up with his national squad following the weekend's game against Burnley at Turf Moor for two matches that could see him add to his haul of 75 international caps.

First up for the Red Devils is a friendly against the Canadians in Cheonan on Friday 11th November, which they are hoping will get their players up to speed ahead of their fifth World Cup qualifier against Uzbekistan, who occupy the second automatic qualification spot just two points ahead of Chungy's side. That game will take place in Seoul four days later on Tuesday 15th November.

Lee is one of three Premier League players in the South Korean squad, alongside Swansea City man Ki Sung-yueng and Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Son Heung-min.
