South Korea arrange friendly clashes

South Korea have lined up a number of friendly games for January as part of their preparations for next year's World Cup.

Earlier this month, coach Huh Jung-moo named a 35-man preliminary squad, which will be cut to 25 by the end of 2009 for the training camps in South Africa and Spain.

The 2002 semi-finalists, who have been drawn in Group B alongside Argentina, Nigeria and Greece, will begin their preparations against Zambia in Johannesburg on January 9 although Huh's side will be without any of their European-based players.

South Korea will then face Premier Soccer League outfit Platinum Stars in Rustenburg and second-tier side Bay United in Port Elizabeth over the next five days.

The East Asian team, preparing for a seventh successive World Cup, then head to Malaga in Spain to face Finland on January 18 before taking on Latvia three days later, with a further friendly expected to be added.
