Note: In the match against Singapore (4-1, 19- 7-72) the Korean FA lists only one goal 
      (other sources claim 2); a report from Singapore newspaper The Straits Times also
      says he scored one goal only. 
      On 22-11-72 the opponent was Indonesia B but this is listed by the Korean FA as
      an official cap; it is also full A for FIFA.
      The matches against Malaysia XI (4-0, 15- 5-74 in Seoul, President's Cup) and 
      Indonesia B, represented by Wilayah II Team (2-0, 27-12-75 in Bangkok, King's Cup) were
      not full A and therefore not included here. The KFA claims these games as full matches.
      The Olympic Games Qualifiers matches are not recognized as full internationals A by 
      FIFA, but they are for the Korean FA.
