Arsenal striker Park Chu-Young yesterday joined South Korea's national football team for this summer's London Olympics, despite controversy over his delayed military service.

The roster announced by Olympic team coach Hong Myung-Bo included Park as one of the three wild cards, used on players over the Olympic roster age limit of 23.

The 26-year-old was dropped from the country‚Äôs World Cup team after he came under fire for delaying his military service by obtaining a 10-year residency visa for Monaco last year, when he played for AS Monaco.
