Japan's veterans find harmony to sound Asian Cup warning

Midfielder Shinji Kagawa played a vital role in Japan's impressive second half against Australia in Osaka.

After indifferent performances with experimental teams, Japan boss Javier Aguirre decided to get the band back together last Tuesday. A lineup that wouldn't have been out of place at the 2011 Asian Cup final against Australia saw the Samurai Blue again singing from the same songbook and hitting those familiar notes in the second half of a friendly against the same opposition in Osaka. At the end of a 2-1 win, the fact that everything seemed so much better with the old guard in place was a source...

Time for Park Chu-young to start scoring goals for South Korea

Park Chu-young was anonymous at the 2014 World Cup and omitted from for the third group game, and South Korea exited in the group stages.

Every club and country has players who divide opinion. Yet when it comes to South Korea, Park Chu-young does not so much divide as cleave in two. The biggest lightsaber imaginable pushes the two camps to opposite ends of the galaxy. The striker with an IQ of 150-plus has become a genius for finding controversy more than finding the net.

The 29-year-old has never been out of the headlines but now is back on the national team, and the media have gone into overdrive. On Nov. 3, he was recalled by...

Uli Stielike calls up Park Chu-young South Korea's November friendlies

Released by Arsenal in May, Park Chu-young is now playing for Saudi Arabian side Al Shabab.

SEOUL, South Korea -- South Korea coach Uli Stielike recalled former Arsenal striker Park Chu-young to the national team for friendlies this month against Jordan and Iran.

Park, released by Arsenal in May and without a club until he joined Saudi Arabia's Al Shabab in September, has not featured for his country since a disappointing 2014 World Cup when the Asian giant collected a solitary point.

South Korea is preparing for January's Asian Cup, where it is drawn in Group A with host Australia, Kuwait...

South Korea, Australia and Japan have Asian Cup questions to answer

New York Red Bulls' forward Tim Cahill looks forward to playing in the 2015 AFC Asian Cup in his home country of Australia.

The Asian Cup is less than three months away, but some of the favourites for that tournament are very much in transitional stages. Too much can be read into results and performances, but as time to kickoff ticks down, some of their concerns need to be addressed.

Those issues have more weight on the heels of a World Cup that for Asia was, well, terrible. That tournament will loom large in the collective continental consciousness for years to come. Costa Rica collected more points than the three...

Korea look to West Asia friendlies after defeat against Costa Rica

South Korea forward Lee Dong-Gook scored the only goal against Costa Rica. He will be looking to add to his tally in West Asia.

Uli Stielike's South Korean team stumbled to a 3-1 defeat against World Cup quarterfinalists Costa Rica on Tuesday in front of nearly 40,000 home fans at the Seoul World Cup Stadium.

However, the German-born coach doesn't believe that his team's preparation for the AFC Asian Cup is off track. Instead, he is looking ahead to the upcoming friendlies in West Asia.

"It was not a big defeat [against Costa Rica]," said Stielike, who was appointed South Korea boss on Sept. 5 following the team's first...
