Hwang Hee Chan, Rayan Ait-Nouri and Boubacar Traore are all away with their respective countries.

But how have they fared so far? And when could they be back?

Wolves star Hwang Hee-Chan missed out on South Korea's Asia Cup victory against Bahrain with injury.

Korea cruised to a 3-1win at the Jassim bin Hamad Stadium, but Hwang was not involved due to a hip flexor injury.

It remains to be seen if the striker will be available for the group clashes with Jordan (Jan 20) and Malaysia (Jan 25).

He is expected to be fit for the knockout stages with Korea second favourites to win the competition behind Japan.
