Lee Chun-Soo

Club: Ulsan Hyundai
Position: Forward

Coach Guus Hiddink has already singled out Lee as potentially his best young player ahead of the World Cup.

The 20-year-old believes he will get his chance to shine as well after failings by his more experienced fellow strikers at previous tournaments.

His frame belies his strength in the tackle and he is brimming with confidence.

A switch to Europe looks a viable option after the tournament. He has already had a trial with French side Lille and a run-out alongside Roberto Baggio at Brescia.
