Koreans Abroad Weekend Preview Nov 20th

By @KoreaFootAbroad

Short rest for Park Joo Ho and a reasonably spread out schedule for more watching.  Usual post-international break warning that lack of rest can often impact lineups in unpredictable way so take start/sit predictions with a grain of salt.

Park Joo Ho -- With the shortest rest after 90 minutes in 2nd WCQ, it seems very unlikely that he'll start this one.  I am expecting bench.

Yun Suk Young -- Warnock stays on as interim manager so Yun looks like he won't make squad.

Hong Jeong Ho -- I haven't heard of him getting fit yet so probably still out with that severe ankle sprain.

Ji Dong Won -- He's started past two and he should be somewhat fit after not starting second WCQ, but it may be that Weinzierl might have different plans both based on preference and having international break to work with his players.  I'm expecting bench for now though of the bench players, I think he has the highest chance of playing.

Koo Ja Cheol -- He came back early after picking up another yellow and being suspended vs Laos.  Hopefully that gives Koo some extra sharpness that Augsburg desperately needs.  I expect a start.

Ki Sung Yueng -- Being captain can be incredibly demanding as he played 90 minutes in both matches.  But Swansea needs him as well as their season has gone totally sideways.  I expect Ki to start though he may be on the bench if too tired or picked up something minor.

Suk Hyun Jun -- He should start and perhaps scoring for KNT helps him get scoring again.

Kim Jin Su -- He should be better rested after playing the first but being rested for the second.  I expect him to start and hopefully do better than he did with KNT.

Son Heung Min -- Hopefully Son continues his fitness for another, but less famous, London derby.  Given that he's not yet produced anything great for Tottenham since his return and playing 90 minutes for Korea, I expect a bench role from him though he could start given that this match is on Sunday and Lamela missed NT training with injury (though he was fit enough to make the bench).

Lee Chung Yong -- He may be fit as he was a sub for KNT in 2nd WCQ but I'm not sure what Pardew's thoughts are with Lee Chung Yong.  As for now I expect him to be lucky to make the bench, with my guess being that Chungy is left off the squad.
