Who are likely to be the star names on the team?
Tottenham Hotspur striker Son Heung-min, who has been called the most underrated striker in the world, is the highlight of the squad.
In 2018, he played a vital role in South Korea’s stunning Germany knocking them out of the group stage in Russia.
The key question is whether he can take his explosive Premier League form to the top podium of them all.
Requiring surgery on a broken eye socket seriously jeopardized his World Cup with South Korea after the Tottenham Hotspur attacker was injured during his team’s Champions League win in Marseille. But after the operation, Son is working on his recovery and has been duly selected for his national team much to the relief of his compatriots.
