Lee Min-Sung

Club: Pusan I.cons
Position: Defender

Lee is arguably one of South Korea's most talented reserves, having played in all three of his country's World Cup matches at the last World Cup.

He failed to quite make his mark on the world stage but will add the only realistic back-up should injury hit the more established back four.

Lee, though, has not been clear of injuries himself en route to the final and, just days before announcing his squad, coach Guus Hiddink had revealed he was a concern to make the trip.

Now cleared to play, his experience from France 98 and the Sydney Olympics should give his country all the support they need.
