Portuguese coach Paulo Bento would have been less than happy with a narrow 1-0 win South Korea had over Philippines. Considered one of the favourites for the title, the South Korean team looked jaded and lacked ideas in the final third. Now up against minnows Kyrgyzstan in their second match, the former Portugal manager wants his team to go all guns blazing. Kyrgyzstan lost their opening game against China and cannot afford another setback tonight. Against an illustrious opponent, the central Asian side will need to put in a real shift if they are to do the impossible. AFC Asia Cup 2019 Video Highlights: India Lose 0-2 to United Arab Emirates
South Korea may have to do without the services of influential players like Newcastle United’s Ki Sung-Yueng and Holstein Kiel’s Lee Jae-Sung. While the former has a hamstring strain, the later is down with bruised toe. Both the players did not take part in the team’s training sessions. Gamba Osaka man Hwang Ui-Jo was one target for South Korea against Philippines which was his fourth goal in the last six games for his national team. He remains a threat for the opposition and Paulo Bento will want his goalscoring form to continue.

Kyrgyzstan goalkeeper Pavel Matiash is at the centre of attraction following his nightmare game against China where he was at fault for both the goals. The shot-stopper will have to show great character in order to bounce back after becoming the first goalkeeper to score an own goal in Asian Cup history. The defence consisting of Daniel Tagoe and Tamirlan Kozubaev will need to work tremendously hard against fast-paced South Korean attack that interchanges and overlaps at will. Mirlan Muzaev was largely subdued against China and would be hoping the midfield feeds him better against South Korea. Kyrgyzstan knows their opponent are without one or two key players and are yet to hit top gear which is a silver lining for them. If they can get an early goal, they might just stop the South Korean juggernaut.
