Kim Nam-Il

Club: Chunnam Dragons
Position: Midfielder

The 24-year-old recently renewed his contract with the K-League club for another season for a reported $75,000 for the campaign.

And he looks set to feature for the South Koreans at some point during the tournament.

Unlike some of the players around him, Kim lacks the attacking potential which coach Guus Hiddink craves.

But his defensive ability should help tighten up Korea's back-line and allow those around him to push forward.
