Lee Woon-Jae

Club: Suwon Samsung Bluewings
Position: Goalkeeper

Prior to the World Cup, he was Guus Hiddink's clear first-choice goalkeeper, playing in 11 of Korea's 14 internationals since July 2000.

He is considered by most to be the K-League's leading goalkeeper.

He has only just returned to the Bluewings after a two-year military stint with Sangmu.

In his absence, the Bluewings conceded 1.5 goals a game as opposed to just one during his time at the team.

The 29-year-old is known to never shirk a challenge.
