No South Korean Olympics chance for Bolton winger Lee Chung-yong

South Korean international Lee Chung-yong has been ruled out of the Olympics as a wild card.

The Bolton Wanderers midfielder, who hope to play his first game this week since breaking his leg in preseason, has been ruled out by Olympic coach Hong Myung-bo.

"Lee is not included on the candidate list for wild card picks," he said after recently returning from London.

The South Korean coach has kept mum about his wild card selections as the team is preparing for their seventh straight Olympics. They are grouped with Gabon, Mexico and Switzerland in Group B.
