Lee Jeong-hyeop given surprise Asian Cup call-up.

Seoul: South Korea on Monday named their final 23-man squad for next month’s Asian Cup in Australia, selecting a group that leans heavily on players from overseas leagues. SEOUL, South Korea – South Korea has lowered its growth forecast for next weak citing the persistently weak sentiment among consumers and businesses. Some 17 members of the national side play abroad, including six based in Europe, while just one — Lee Jeong-hyeop — has no international experience. The downward revision, representing some improvement from 3.4 percent growth this year, shows the government’s challenge in encouraging consumers to spend more and businesses to boost investment despite its expansionary policies and the central bank’s two rate cuts this year. Stielike said he picked “versatile” players who could play multiple positions, adding that some defenders like Park Joo-ho of Mainz 05 and Jang Hyeon-soo of Guangzhou R&F will play as “defensive midfielders”.

South Korea are grouped with hosts Australia, Oman and Kuwait in the Asian Cup, and will take on Saudi Arabia on January 4 in Sydney for a final tune-up match. Defenders: Jang Hyeon-soo (Guangzhou R&F), Kim Chang-soo (Kashiwa Reysol), Kim Young-gwon (Guangzhou Evergrande), Kwak Tae-hwi (Al-Hilal FC), Kim Jin-su (TSG Hoffenheim), Cha Du-ri (FC Seoul), Park Joo-ho (FSV Mainz 05), Kim Ju-young (FC Seoul) Midfielders: Ki Sung-yueng (Swansea City), Lee Chung-yong (Bolton Wanderers), Son Heung-min (Bayer Leverkusen), Han Kook-young (Qatar SC), Nam Tae-hee (Lekhwiya SC), Koo Ja-cheol (Mainz 05), Kim Min-woo (Sagan Tosu), Han Kyo-won (Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors), Lee Myung-joo (Al Ain)
