The K League United Elimination Game - Round 12


After a six week hiatus, the K League United Elimination Game returns from the World Cup to claim its remaining eleven competitors. With Round Eleven causing twists and shocks worthy of mid-season cliffhanger, Round Twelve will certainly have a lot to live up to!

Round 11 Roundup



More than one person messaged me saying, “I’m just trying to get to make it to the World Cup break.”

More than one person failed. 

Welcome back to the KLeague United Elimination Game!!! In the final round before the break, six players chose the mighty K-League 2 play-off spot holding Bucheon 1995 to not lose against the barely-not-bottom-of-the-table Seoul E-Land and they saw a dandy of a game that gave E-Land their third win of the season back in the middle of May. 




Ross Davis, Branko Belan, Steve Price, Dan Croydon, and Paul Carver all lost their final life on that game. 

Similarly, Scott Whitelock put his final life on Asan who are currently in second in the K-League 2 and only two points shy of first. Asan lost at home to Daejeon as Daejeon recorded their fifth win of the season. 

No one is perfect anymore as Lex Nande and James Edrupt got their first loss of this Elimination Game as both thought Gwangju would be able to handle Anyang. Anyang, instead, recorded their first win in league play! After the World Cup break, Anyang got two more wins bringing their win column up to 3. 

Six players have two lives left while five players are on their last life. 




World Cup players to watch this weekend:

The hero for Korea during the World Cup, Cho Hyun-woo, could be back in net as his K-League side Daegu FC play host to FC Seoul and Seoul’s World Cup hero Go Yo-han. Both sides are hoping to avoid relegation. 

Jeonbuk will be hosting Incheon United. Jeonbuk sent three players to Russia, Kim Shin-wook, Lee Yong, and Lee Jae-sung, while Incheon sent Moon Seon-min. 

Sangju will be hosting Ulsan Hyundai. Sangju sent Kim Min-woo and Hong Chul to Russia while Ulsan sent Park Joo-ho. 

Suwon will be hosting Jeju and possibly Jeju’s lone World Cup player Oh Ban-suk. 

Only two teams in the K-League 2 sent representatives to Russia. Yun Yong-sun and Seongnam FC will be hosting Seoul E-Land who are near the bottom of the table, and Ju Se-jong of Asan will be visiting the Ansan Greeners. 




For fairness, I’m announcing publicly that I will be choosing Gangwon FC to not lose against the Jeonnam Dragons.
