All eyes are on Paulo Bento’s Korean side as they look to record a second-straight win in the group stages
SOUTH KOREA continue their search for a first Asian Cup since 1960 with a group game against Kyrgyzstan.
The Koreans limped past debutantes Philippines in their opening fixture thanks to a second-half strike from Gamba Osaka star Hwang Ui-jo.
And they will once again have to soldier on without Tottenham striker Son Heung-min, who will not be available until after Spurs’ game against Man Utd on Sunday.
SADLY the Asian Cup is not being broadcast live in the UK.
beIN Sports hold the Asian Cup TV rights for all Arab League countries, whilst viewers in Europe can tune into Eurosport.
THIS Group C clash is all set for Friday, January 11.
Kick-off is at 4pm UK time.
It will be played at Hazza Bin Zayed Stadium, home of UAE side and Club World Cup runners-up Al Ain.
