South Korea with­out Lee, Ki

The New Paper - - SPORTS -

South Korea will miss mid­field­ers Lee Jae Sung and Ki Sung Yueng for to­day’s Asian Cup Group C match against Kyr­gyzs­tan.

Lee, who played 86 min­utes of the Kore­ans’ 1-0 win over the Philippines on Mon­day, did not take part in Wednesday’s train­ing ses­sion due to a hurt big toe.

New­cas­tle United mid­fielder Ki, 29, in­jured his ham­string in Mon­day’s game and has been ruled out for a week.

Ki will also miss their fi­nal group game against lead­ers China next Wednesday, when Tot­ten­ham Hot­spur’s Son He­ung Min is sched­uled to make his tour­na­ment de­but.
