South Korea's coach Shin Tae-yong said Sunday he deliberately made his team wear different numbered shirts in recent friendlies to confuse World Cup opponents who cannot tell his players apart. He said all but star player Son Heung-min and captain Ki Sung-yueng were given different shirts in games against Bolivia and Senegal in Austria earlier this month to outwit anyone checking up on his team.The row centers on Swedish scout Lasse Jacobsson who reportedly was covertly watching the Koreans prepare for the World Cup.Andersson also said he had a full squad of players to choose from and pretty much knew which team he would pick, but refused to reveal more details.
