Will we be able to see Lionel Messi, the god of soccer, in Korea?
Neighboring country Japan is promoting a confrontation with Argentina in an A-match in March.
Japan Sports Hochi reported on the 7th, “The Qatar World Cup champion Argentina has risen rapidly against the A match on March 24, which will be the first match of Moriyasu Hajime’s 2nd season.”
At the same time, he expected, “The match against the powerful Argentina, who has won the World Cup three times, is a golden opportunity, and there is a possibility that Messi (PSG), a world-class striker, will participate.”
Currently, Japan’s A-match friendly match against Colombia on March 28 has been confirmed. According to the media, the Japan Football Association proceeded with the contract for a friendly match with Argentina behind the scenes, and it is known that it has entered the final stage after proceeding smoothly.
The match between Japan and Argentina is the first in 12 years since 2010. Japan, who are in absolute inferiority with 1 win and 6 losses, won 1-0 in a friendly match held at home in 2010 with Shinji Okazaki’s winning goal.
Japan, which shocked the world by tying up Messi, who was running at his peak at the time, is concentrating on a rematch after 12 years.
Argentina is also known to have been positive about the friendly match, having a strong impression on Japan, which defeated Germany and Spain in the World Cup.
As the possibility of Japan calling Argentina increased, the possibility of the Korean national team also meeting Argentina arose.
The national team, which will start a new coaching system after the departure of former coach Paulo Bento, will play a friendly match against Colombia on March 24th. Just as Colombia, who visited Japan, accepted the friendly match against Korea, it is highly likely that Argentina will also accept the match against Korea. 토토사이트
According to the Korea Football Association, the opponent for the second match of the A-match is under discussion and will be decided among South American countries.
If the friendly against Argentina is confirmed and Messi participates, this will be his second visit to Korea.
Previously, Messi visited Korea as a member of Barcelona in 2010 and participated in a friendly against the K-League All-Stars.
He also played a big role against Korea in the group stage of the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, leading them to a 1-4 loss.
