South Korea have jumped the gun in naming their provisional squad of 30 ahead of the World Cup, and World Cup football Betting may cast an interested eye over them. The tournament, which kicks off in South Africa on June 11th, will likely be graced with two English based South Korean players. Perhaps their most famous export, is Manchester United’s Park Ji-Sung, who had an understated start at the northern club, but has won fans over with his tireless endeavour. Park Ji-Sung’s arrival under the wing of Alex Ferguson, helped to spread the word about South Korean football, as well as boosting Manchester United’s Asian affairs. Park Ji-Sung will be an important player and his inclusion is no surprise, along with Botlon’s winger Lee Chung-Yong.

 

South Korea are no newcomers the biggest football stage in the World, and the survivor of two previous campaigns, Ahn Jung-hwan has also made it to the party of thirty. South Korea take on Ecuador in a friendly ahead of the World Cup in the middle of May, and after that, the squad will be cut down to 23 by manager Huh Jung-Moo. One other name of note, and watch to watch for, is that of Monaco forward Park Chu-Young, who will pose one of the biggest threats up front for the South Koreans. World Cup Betting Odds will naturally no have the South Koreans high on the list, so th ebest betting on them may be made on individual matches, and especially with live in play betting which online bookmkers offer.

Betting on South Korea at the World Cup will no doubt take on some optimistic bets, as they find themselves in Group B along with Argentina, Greece and Nigeria. While the Argentineans are expected to win that group, there could be a close tussle between the remaining three teams, all of which boast different styles. Huh’s men start their World Cup against Greece, and they will be hoping to catch the European side cold at the beginning of the tournament, in order to set themselves up with a chance of reaching the knockout stage. South Korea’s most famous moments came in the 2002 World Cup, held in Korea, where the home nation battled their way to the semi finals.
