PAJU, South Korea, Oct. 11 (Yonhap) — South Korean midfielder Lee Jae-sung missed another training session Thursday, raising questions about whether he will play in an upcoming football friendly match against Uruguay.
South Korea called up Lee, who is with German Bundesliga 2 club Holstein Kiel, for friendly matches against Uruguay and Panama this month. South Korea will host Uruguay in Seoul on Friday before meeting Panama in Cheonan, South Chungcheong Province, four days later.
A Korea Football Association (KFA) official said Lee decided not to take part in Thursday’s training at the National Football Center (NFC) in Paju, north of Seoul, after he felt pain in his knee, adding that it’s uncertain at this moment whether the 26-year-old will play against Uruguay. Lee also missed Wednesday’s training at the NFC.
Lee injured his right knee during his club’s training on Oct. 2. However, he played full time in Holstein Kiel’s 2-1 loss to FC Erzgebirge Aue four days later.
Lee, who was named the South Korean league MVP last season after leading Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors to the championship, joined the national team on Monday to prepare for national team’s October friendlies.
Lee is a key player for the Taeguk Warriors. He has seven goals in 40 caps and represented South Korea at the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
SEOUL, Oct. 10 (Yonhap) — South Korea will try to end a winless streak against Uruguay when they host the South American giants for a friendly football match this week.
South Korea, ranked 55th in the September FIFA rankings, will face fifth-ranked Uruguay at Seoul World Cup Stadium in Seoul on Friday. It will be South Korea’s first friendly this month before taking on Panama on Tuesday.
South Korea have yet to beat Uruguay in men’s football, only collecting one draw and six losses. The two sides last met in September 2014, and South Korea suffered a 1-0 loss.
The Taeguk Warriors will try to break a long winless drought against Uruguay with new head coach Paulo Bento, who made his South Korea debut last month. Under Bento, South Korea beat Costa Rica 2-0 and collected a 0-0 draw against Chile.
