Premier League flop Lee Dong-Gook, 38, dreams of 2018 World Cup

From Premier League flop to South Korean record-breaker, the career of Lee Dong-Gook has reached such lows and highs that it deserves its own ride at the Everland theme park, just south of Seoul.

He arrived on Teesside in Jan. 2007 and told local media that he wanted to "have...

The decision was taken by the Entry Control Body, a committee independent of the Asian Football Confederation...

Thai champions Muang Thong United have stepped up preparations for this year's AFC Champions League (ACL) campaign by signing veteran South Korean midfielder Lee Ho from Asian champions Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors.

Lee's experience could prove invaluable as the Kirins get set to take on Japanese champions Kashima Antlers, and two other teams, when they return to the ACL group stage for the first time since 2013. And the former South Korean international will be hoping to relaunch a career that has stalled...
