The Korean national soccer team will once again play against Uruguay, their opponent in the first leg of the 2022 Qatar World Cup group stage. With this, the national team has confirmed all opponents to meet during the A match day in March.
The Korea Football Association announced on the 14th that it would play a friendly A match against Uruguay on the 28th of next month. The venue was selected as the Seoul World Cup Stadium. Only time is undecided. The Uruguay national team is scheduled to return to Korea after playing a game against Japan on the 24th of next month.
The national team, led by former coach Paulo Bento, met Uruguay in the World Cup group stage held at the Al Rayyan Education City Stadium in Qatar on November 24 last year and recorded a 0-0 draw. Since then, the national team seemed to have difficulty advancing to the World Cup round of 16 as they lost to Ghana, but defeated Portugal and recorded 1 win, 1 draw and 1 loss. At the same time, Uruguay also beat Ghana 2-0, and the two teams were tied with 1 win, 1 draw and 1 loss. Although the goal difference between the national team and Uruguay was the same, the national team that was ahead in terms of points beat Uruguay and advanced to the round of 16.
Coach Bento, who made it to the round of 16, ended his relationship with the national team, but Deego Alonso (48), Uruguay coach, kept his position. 메이저놀이터
Since the March A-match is held during the A-match period set by FIFA, foreign players can be summoned. It means that a confrontation between ‘elite members’ can take place like the World Cup group stage match.
Of particular interest is the match between Federico Valverde (Real Madrid) and Lee Kang-in (Mallorca). Valverde caused controversy by provoking Lee Kang-in after attempting a rough tackle.
As a result, both his new managerial debut and second game, which will take the lead of the national team, have all been decided. The national team will face Colombia on the 24th of next month at Ulsan Munsu Soccer Stadium. After former Bento coach resigned, Michael Müller, chairman of the National Team, formed a committee to strengthen the power of the national team and is looking for a new coach candidate.
