Korea recall Lee Woon-jae after year long ban
SEOUL, November 3 (World Cup Qualifying) - After serving a year-long ban, Korea Republic have recalled goalkeeper Lee Woon-jae to the squad to face Saudi Arabia in a FIFA 2010 World Cup qualifier against Saudi Arabia on November 19.
Lee was one of four players banned by the Korean Football Association (KFA) for late night drinking sessions during the 2007 AFC Asian Cup.
The 12 months ended last week and the experienced shotstopper links up with Park Ji-sung of Manchester United and Park Chu-young of AS Monaco.
The game comes too soon for West Bromich Albion midfielder Kim Do-heon who has just recovered from a knee injury.
Injury has also ruled out defender Kwak Tae-hwi.
There is a first call-up for Daegu midfielder Ha Dae-sung while Yeom Ki-hoon returns after a lengthy injury lay-off.
"I have selected players who are playing well and in a good condition physically," said coach Huh Jung-moo at a press conference in Seoul on Monday.
"We are looking to get a good result on the road in South Africa and we will do our very best to make it happen."
Korea Republic top Group Two on goal difference with four points from two games, the same as Saudi Arabia.
The team departs for the Middle-East on November 11 and will play a warm-up match against Qatar three days later.
