Park makes South Korea squad

SEOUL, South Korea -- Hong Myung-bo has picked Arsenal striker Park Chu-young among nine Europe-based players selected for South Korea's 23-man World Cup squad.

Though he hasn't played much for Arsenal this season, Park Chu-young made South Korea's World Cup roster.

The South Korea coach announced his lineup Thursday at Paju's National Football Center.

Park made the list despite having very little game time since joining the Gunners in August 2011. Other English Premier League players Ki Sung-yeung and Kim Bo-kyong were also selected.

As Hong promised, there were no surprises in the squad, although injury has ruled out Park Joo-ho, who plays for FC Mainz in Germany.

South Korea, a semifinalist when it co-hosted the tournament in 2002, is preparing for an eighth successive World Cup campaign and faces Russia, Algeria and Belgium in Group H.

Squad:

Goalkeepers: Jung Sung-ryeong (Suwon Bluewings), Kim Seung-gyu (Ulsan Horang-i), Lee Bom-young (Busan I'Park)

Defenders: Kim Jin-soo (Albirex Niigata, Japan), Yun Suk-young (QPR, England), Kim Young-kwon (Guangzhou Evergrande, China), Hwang Seok-ho (Sanfrecce Hiroshima, Japan), Hong Jeong-ho (Augsburg, Germany), Kwak Tae-hwi (Al Hilal, Saudi Arabia), Lee Yong (Ulsan Horang-i), Kim Chang-soo (Kashiwa Reysol, Japan).

Midfielders: Ki Seung-yeung (Sunderland, England), Ha Dae-sung (Beijing Guoan, China), Han Kook-young (Kashiwa Reysol, Japan), Park Jung-woo (Guangzhou R&F, China), Son Heung-min (Bayer Leverkusen, Germany), Kim Bo-kyoung (Cardiff City, Wales), Lee Chung-yong (Bolton Wanderers, England), Ji Dong-won (Augusburg, Germany).

Forwards: Koo Ja-cheol (Mainz, Germany), Lee Keun-ho (Sangju Sangmu), Park Chu-young (Arsenal, England), Kim Shin-wook (Ulsan Horang-i).
