  THE TAPESCRIPT

A team from Asia will win the World Cup one day. That team will probably be South Korea. We have been the best team in Asia for decades. We have been to the World Cup more often than any other Asian team. This will be our seventh World Cup appearance. So, this could be our year to bring the trophy back to Asia, and South Korea. We got to the semi-finals in 2002 and we can go a step further in South Africa. Park Ji-Sung will be the player to look for. He’s an important part of Manchester United’s team. But we don’t just have him. We have a lot of very skilful players who all play really well as a team. We are very strong in defence and help each other in attack. We will be very difficult to beat. I’m sure we can get through to the second round, and then the fun starts.
