Park to miss South Korea's last match at Asian Cup

Park to miss South Korea's last match at Asian Cup

Park Ji-sung was not named in South Korea's squad for Friday's third-place playoff match against Uzbekistan, meaning he has likely played his final match for his country.
The 29-year-old Manchester United midfielder won his 100th cap in the semifinal loss to Japan and is expected to announce his retirement after the tournament.
He has called a news conference in Seoul on Monday.
Coach Cho Kwang-rae said before the game he was concerned about Park's general fitness and was focusing on "injury prevention."
