Huh opens door to fringe players

South Korea coach Huh Jung-moo has stressed the door is not closed for those players on the fringe of the national team for the World Cup this summer, despite naming a predominantly locally-based squad for the upcoming East Asian Championships.

There were few surprises in the roster that is comprised of players who ply their trade in the K-League and J.League as the defending champions prepare to face Japan, China and Hong Kong at the four-nation tournament.

While Premier League stars Park Ji-sung (Manchester United) and Lee Chung-yong (Bolton) are unavailable due to their club commitments, Huh stressed the likes of Lee Chun-soo and Ahn Jung-hwan can still make his World Cup squad despite being overlooked for the East Asian Championships.

''I have said a number of times that the door is always open and I am keeping an eye on them,'' Huh said of Lee and Ahn. ''One problem is that Lee plays in Saudi Arabia with Al Nasr while Ahn Jung-hwan plies his trade in China with Dalian Shide.

''There are not too many opportunities to watch them but both are experienced players.''
