Australia schedule friendly with Son Heung-min's South Korea in June

Australia will warm-up for the start of its World Cup qualifying campaign with a friendly against Son Heung-Min's South Korea in Busan on June 7.

The clash with the Taeguk Warriors will be the first match for Graham Arnold's Socceroos since January's ill-fated Asian Cup campaign.

Both Australia and Paulo Bento's South Korea suffered disappointing quarterfinal exits at the continental championship, eventually won by Qatar.

June's match will come seven months after both teams met in a pre-Asian Cup...

South Korea call up Tottenham's Son Heung-Min for March friendlies

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has reinvigorated Manchester United, but Craig Burley and Gab Marcotti agree Mauricio Pochettino is a better fit long term.

Son Heung-Min will be travelling once again later this month as the Tottenham Hotspur attacker has been called up by South Korea for home friendlies against Bolivia and Colombia on March 22 and 26.

The 26 year-old has appeared in three international tournaments -- the World Cup, the Asian Games and the Asian Cup -- in the past 12 months and has also been busy helping Tottenham challenge in the Premier League and UEFA Champions League.

While Son has been in excellent form for the London club, he...

Australia eased to victory over South Korea to move a step closer to Cup of Nations glory.

Sam Kerr nabbed her first goals as Australian captain and Lisa De Vanna erased any doubts about her worth to the Matildas in Sunday night's 4-1 defeat of South Korea.

The Matildas are set to win the Cup of Nations after a second morale-boosting result of Ante Milicic's tenure, sealed by a super strike by Emily Gielnik.

In Brisbane, pace was the difference. Kerr stole in front of Korean defenders twice in the first half, winning a penalty for an early opener before racing onto a poor backpass to...

Pim Verbeek quits Oman, calls time on managerial career

Oman coach Pim Verbeek resigned from the post on Wednesday with the former Australia and South Korea boss calling time on a managerial career spanning almost 40 years.

The 62-year-old took charge of the Oman national team in 2016 and guided them to a Gulf Cup triumph the following year and to the last 16 of the Asian Cup for the first time last month.

Oman FA chief Salem bin Saeed Al Wahaibi called an emergency board meeting on Wednesday and accepted Verbeek's resignation even though his contract...

Tottenham's Son Heung-min trades Asian Cup pressure for expectations at injury-hit Spurs

Son Heung-min cut a forlorn figure in Abu Dhabi on Friday evening as South Korea crashed out of the Asian Cup after a 1-0 loss to Qatar at the quarterfinal stage. He may be happy to get back to Tottenham Hotspur where his return will be cheered almost as much as the result was in Doha..

It was a tired performance from the Taeguk Warriors and a tired performance from the team's talisman as he admitted after the game.

"I wasn't properly prepared. I was physically drained," Son, who had previously...
