The Korean national soccer team takes aim at the Uruguay goal with an even faster attack.
Korea, led by coach Jurgen Klinsmann, will play a friendly match against Uruguay at 8:00 pm on the 28th at the Seoul World Cup Stadium. Klinsmann, who unfortunately drew 2-2 against Colombia on the 24th, is once again challenging for his first win.
South Korea is only shouting ‘unconditional victory’. Lee Jae-seong, the ‘midfield engine’, said, “Coach Klinsman told us to win the next game (against Uruguay) unconditionally. The players are aware of that. The fans also want to win. It motivates them.” .
It is a return match to be held after about 4 months. Korea and Uruguay drew 0-0 in the first leg of Group H of the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar last November, and could not decide the game. However, Korea smiled at the last minute as they beat Uruguay and advanced dramatically to the round of 16.
It was a short time, but both teams have changed a lot since then. First, Korea replaced the most important command tower. There are no major changes to the squad except for injured players such as Kim Jin-soo (Jeonbuk Hyundai), Hong Cheol (Daegu), and Yoon Jong-gyu (FC Seoul), but after saying goodbye to coach Paulo Bento, Klinsman was appointed as new coach. 메이저놀이터
Uruguay has more variation. Edinson Cavani, Diego Godin, Fernando Muslera and Jose Jimenez are all suspended. Luis Suárez is also out of the roster, while Darwin Núñez, Rodrigo Bentancur and Ronald Araujo are out with injuries. In addition, they have yet to find a successor to coach Diego Alonso, so Marcelo Brolly, the national under-20 coach, is taking the helm temporarily.
