Weekend Recap Sept 30th

International break coming up. A bit more action than anticipated.

Son Heung Min -- Came on in final minutes of match but did have a good move when he got the opportunity, dribbling well and feeding a good pass that would lead to a goal.

Ji Dong Won -- As things go well for Augsburg, Ji remains left out even if the attacking options for Augsburg haven't been fully convincing. Hopefully he gets a chance sooner or later.

Koo Ja Cheol -- After suffering a concussion last weekend, he apparently recovered enough to make the bench, and when Khedira went out with injury, Koo came on late in the first half. I haven't gotten to watch all of his minutes but he looked good in the parts I saw. The major error was a shirt grab that  was called for a PK on VAR which was dubious.

Lee Chung Yong -- Made the bench. Wasn't involved in the huge beating that Crystal Palace suffered.

Ki Sung Yueng -- He played an hour with the reserves. He started off pretty sluggishly but started to find some rhythm towards the end of the first half (I didn't watch his last 15 min).

Kwon Chang Hoon -- Came on as a late sub but had a good impact, knocking in a good cross for a goal. Unfortunately, Dijon managed to concede in final minute.

Lee Seung Woo -- An unused sub. Verona did waste a sub on an injury but it was surprising he didn't come on despite them getting beaten down again. If you're gonna lose bad, you'd think that you'd play your kids to give them time to develop. Hopefully he takes advantage of international break to earn a bigger role going forward.

Suk Hyun Jun -- Was a starter... but then was taken off after 30 minutes when Troyes picked up a red card and needed a tactical substitution. But a positive sign as Suk seems to be progressing in his integration.
