Park: Still out of action
Park Ji-sung has been called up by South Korea for the forthcoming matches against Denmark and Serbia despite currently being out with a knee injury.
The winger picked up the problem on the plane home from Seoul last month after South Korea defeated Senegal 2-0.
The 28-year-old has missed Manchester United's last nine games with manager Sir Alex Ferguson revealing on Friday that he expected the former PSV man to be out for another two weeks.
That would give Park just a few days' training prior to the international double header starting with Denmark on November 14 before taking on Serbia at Craven Cottage four days later.
Other Premier League inclusions in the squad include Bolton's in-form forward Lee Chung-yong, Fulham's Seol Ki-hyeon and Wigan's Cho Won-hee while former West Brom midfielder Kim Do-heon is also included for the first time since his return to the K-League in the summer.
