Kim Jin-su out of SKorean squad
(05-29 12:37)

Kim Jin-su has been ruled out of South Korea's World Cup squad due to an ankle injury.
The Korea Football Association announced Thursday that Park Joo-ho will join the 23-man squad to replace the 21-year-old Kim, a Japan-based left back who has played nine internationals since Hong Myung-bo took over as head coach last year.
The 27-year-old Park, who has recovered from a foot injury that contributed to his omission from the original squad, is coming off a successful season in Germany with FSV Mainz 05.
QPR's Yun Suk-young played 90 minutes at left back in Wednesday's disappointing 1-0 home defeat by Tunisia.
The South Koreans, semifinalists at the 2002 World Cup, also have injury concerns over defender Hong Jeong-ho, who hurt an ankle in the loss to Tunisia.
South Korea will hold a training camp in Florida and play a warmup match against Ghana before heading to Brazil, where it kicks off its ninth World Cup campaign on June 17 against Russia. South Korea's other Group H matches are against Algeria and Belgium. --AP
