    Korea's roster for an upcoming football tournament was revealed Thursday.

    National football team head coach Paulo Bento included footballers mostly playing in the K-League in the roster for the East Asian Football Federation E-1 Football Championship which is set to take place in Busan on Dec. 10-18.

    Those playing in Europe like Son Heung-min of Tottenham Hotspur and Hwang Hee-chan of FC Salzburg are unable to make it, because the tournament is not part of the FIFA calendar. Instead, the 23-man roster is filled with K-League players including goalie Kim Seung-gyu and defender Park Joo-ho, both from Ulsan Hyundai.

    Korea will face Hong Kong on Dec. 11, China on Dec. 15 and Japan on Dec. 18.
