South Korean football legend Sang-Chul dies at 49

Former South Korean football player, Yoo Sang-Chul, has died after a battle with pancreatic cancer, the Korea Football Association said.

The midfielder featured in the country’s run to the 2002 World Cup semifinals in 2002, under Guus Hiddink, which the country co-hosted with Japan.

Yoo scored against Poland to kick off the group stage with a victory, after which the team went on to sensationally defeat Italy and Spain. He made FIFA’s All-Star team of the tournament that year.

According to Washington Post, the KFA confirmed his passing with a message: “We will forever remember the shouts and glory of that day with you. Rest in peace.”

Yoo won the K-League title with Ulsan Hyundai in 1996 and 2005 and also helped Yokohama F. Marinos claim the J. League crown in 2003 and 2004 during his 16-year playing career.

He then moved into coaching, where he recently was head coach at South Korean club Incheon United.

The footie ace was 49.
