Reporter Park Dae-ro = Korea and Uruguay will meet again 4 months after they faced each other in the group stage of the 2022 Qatar World Cup. It is expected that Lee Kang-in and Valverde, who have become enemies through World Cup and La Liga matches, will collide head-on.
The Korea Football Association announced on the 13th that it would hold a friendly A match against Uruguay on the 28th of next month. 토토사이트
The venue of the match is the Seoul World Cup Stadium. A kickoff time has not yet been set.
The Korean national team faces a South American team during the A-match, which is the first time since the new coach took office. They will play against Colombia on the 24th of next month in Ulsan and on the 28th against Uruguay.
In the first match of the Qatar World Cup group stage last November, Korea and Uruguay drew 0-0 after a close match. As a result of the group stage, the two teams recorded the same 1 win, 1 draw and 1 loss, and the goal difference was the same. South Korea, ahead of many points, advanced dramatically to the round of 16, and Uruguay was eliminated.
Despite the less-than-expected World Cup results, Uruguay has maintained the coaching system of Diego Alonso.
Currently, Uruguay’s FIFA ranking is 16th, higher than Korea, which is 25th. The Uruguay national team is scheduled to return to Korea after playing a match in Japan on the 24th of next month.
Korea and Uruguay have a record of 1 win, 2 draws and 6 losses from 9 matches, leaving Korea behind. In a friendly match held in Seoul in October 2018, the only victory was a 2-1 win with goals from Hwang Ui-jo and Jung Woo-young (Al Sadd).
Attention is focusing on whether Lee Kang-in and Federico Valverde, the hopefuls of both teams, will face off head-to-head this time. Following the World Cup group stage match, Valverde had a war of nerves in the recent match between Mallorca and Real Madrid, deliberately fouling Lee Kang-in.
