    Chi-Gon Kim

    Sanfrecce took advantage of his poor defending and managed to equalize before the first half. It didn’t come as a surprise that he was substituted in the second half.

    Ho Lee

    He wasn’t his usual influential self in the middle of the park. He did win the ball on a few occasions but the Sanfrecce midfield was too good for him

    Seung-Yong Kim

    It was a far better performance from the winger. He did create a couple of chances but not much came of it.

    Young-Sam Kim

    He didn’t enjoy the best of games and was partly at fault for Sato’s second goal of the evening.

    Seul-Ki Go

    He had a couple of attempts in the first half, including one at the start of the game. He gradually faded as the game progressed.

    Shin-Wook Kim

    The Korean striker was one of the disappointing players as he wasted a number of chances. He failed to score from a couple of decent crosses at the start of the second half.

    Keun-Ho Lee

    The Asian Player of the Year award winner was at his best as he kept creating chances for his team-mates which they didn’t capitalize on.

    The Brazilian was trying too hard to score but couldn’t come up with much to show for his effort.

    Ju-Sang Lee Flop of the Match

    The substitute had a nightmarish evening as he failed to track Sato on not one but two occasions.

    Maranhao

    The Brazilian came in for the last quarter of an hour and was very active. He didn’t get many chances coming his way though.

    Hiroki Mizumoto

    A very poor match for Mizumoto; sub-par marking, positions, and a howler of an own-goal.
