Forwards: Kim Shin-wook (Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors), Son Heung-min (Tottenham Hotspur), Hwang Hee-chan (FC Red Bull Salzburg)
Son Heung-min of Tottenham. The 25-year-old striker is a fantastic, improving player that has made a splash in the Premier League since arriving from Leverkusen in 2015. Not a full-time starter, he's got 47 goals in 139 matches for the club, scoring 21 in 2016-17 and 18 goals last season. And he's no poacher. He can create for himself, has fine speed and can finish from the toughest of angles. He's a potential breakout star this summer.
Player to watch
Hwang Hee-chan. The 22-year-old striker has done well in limited time at Red Bull Salzburg, but he's already got 56 matches under his belt at the team since 2015. He is small, quick, smart and already has shown some serious flashes.
This team is good enough to get out of this group, but it's going to be tough having to face two countries that are clearly better in Germany and Mexico. The most likely scenario is they crash out in the group stage, but if they can beat Sweden in the opener and hold Mexico to a draw, they'll be in great shape.
