Teams: South Korea vs India

Group: C

Time: 16:15 local time, 13:15 GMT

Venue: Al Gharafa Stadium

Park Ji-sung is not sure about his participation in his team’s last group match against India. It seems that South Korea will have to play without their key player. Because of his absence, other players will have to handle the pressure. The Manchester United player is now suffering from toothace. So, thereis hardly any possibility to see him to play against India.

Fans will be eagerly waiting to see who will replace him in the squad. However, coach, Cho Kwang-rae, will be hoping that the experienced winger will be recoverd soon from toothache and lead his team. The 29-year-old player is the captain of South Korean national team. South Korea needs his serivce badly to secure their place in the quarter-finals.

South Korea will have to win the match if they want to play in the quarter-final round. If they draw the match against India then their luck to play in the second round will largely depend on Australia vs Bahrain match. No doubt, will be put under huge pressure. However, South Korean coach is optimistic about his team’s performance against the weak opponent India.

India has failed to get any victory in their previous two matches and become the first team to be left out from Group C. They received a thumping defeat at the hand of Australia by 4-0 and Bahrain by 5-2. So, Indian coach, Bob Houghton, wants his team to give their best in their last game at the AFC Asian Cup. India made their entrace in the sub-continental football tournament after 47 years. As their AFC Asian Cup campaign is coming to an end, they should want to make it memorable by getting a shocking victory over South Korea.

In Group C pointa table, South Korea is now in second position after Australia. In their two matches, they have got 4 points. They defeated Bahrain by 2-1 and their match against Australia finished with 1-1 draw. To avoid clash with Iran in the knock out stage, they should want to win the match and be a Group winner. South Korea played well to reach in the AFC Asian Cup Finals and they are considered to be one of the strongest teams to win the title in Qatar.

Their squad looks much stronger as many of their players are playin in different European football clubs. Captain Park Ji-Sung currently plays for the English club Manchester United. Lee Chung-Yong is playing in Bolton Wanderers while Ki Sung-Yueng and Cha Du-Ri play in Celtic. Son Heung-Min plays in Hamburg. However, young player, Koo Ja-Cheol, will be the main attraction of today’s match as he has scored two goals, one in each match, so far.

It is thought that captain, Bhaichung Bhutia, will play in today’s match against Korea despite suffering from injury. Coach, Bob Houghton, may bring some more changes in the squad. The good news for Indian fans is that two strikers, Abhishek Yadav and Sunil Chettri, will be playing in this game. Because of their punishment, they could not play in the first two matches against Australia and Bahrain. Their inclusion will increase India’s strenght in the midfield.

This match will be shown live on ESPN STAR Sports. South Asain people can see this match live on this channel.
