Both Hong Jeong Ho and Ji Dong Won came off the bench in an Augsburg win.  Neither had that large a hand in the match though Ji did help pull the defenders off of Werner for his goal.  Ji may get a start and Hong may if injuries are an issue.

Park Joo Ho played 90 and Koo Ja Cheol came off the bench in a 1-1 draw.  Joo Ho had a strong match, winning the penalty that led to the leveler and also won team of the week honors.  Hopefully with Koo back from international break he will start again as I'm sure PJH will.

Lee Chung Yong came on as a sub and will most likely be bench again this weekend.

Kim Bo Kyung played 90 in a huge win for Cardiff's survival chances.  Kimbo worked hard but was off on key passes / touches.  Hopefully the good results with him in mean that he gets another start.  But you never know with Cardiff.

Ki Sung Yueng sat out a cup loss that in foresight looked to be a distraction in their relegation fight (and thus resting Ki off international duty), but in retrospect would have meant a doable path back to Wembley.  He should start in a critical match.

Park Chu Young did not make the squad after a thigh injury sustained with the national team.  He was one of the strongest members on the friendly lineup, scoring a goal and setting up what should have been another.  We will see when he returns.

Son Heung Min was flat after a good friendly goal.  Hopefully he turns it around for this match which would both be important for points and for morale which is running low in Leverkusen.

Park Ji Sung should start.  He played 82 minutes last weekend.
