Korea meets Uruguay again after 4 months.
The Korea Football Association announced on the 13th, “We decided to play a friendly A match against Uruguay on March 28th.” The venue is the Seoul World Cup Stadium, and the kickoff time has not yet been set.
It is a rematch in four months since the first round of Group H of the 2022 Qatar World Cup group stage in November last year. The result at that time was a 0-0 draw. South Korea and Uruguay finished the group stage with 1 win, 1 draw and 1 loss, but Korea advanced to the round of 16 ahead on many points. 먹튀검증
In particular, attention is drawn to the rematch between Lee Kang-in (Mallorca) and Federico Valverde (Real Madrid).
After making a rough tackle on Lee Kang-in at the Qatar World Cup, Valverde provoked him with an uppercut ceremony. Lee Kang-in did not respond much, but Valverde was criticized for making a rough tackle on Lee Kang-in in the recent La Liga match.
Uruguay’s FIFA ranking is 16th. It is higher than Korea (25th). Despite being knocked out in the group stage, manager Diego Alonso kept the baton. The opponent record is 1 win, 2 draws, 6 losses, and Korea is inferior. In the evaluation match held in Seoul in October 2018, the only victory was a 2-1 win with goals from Hwang Eui-jo (FC Seoul) and Jung Woo-young (Al Sadd).
As a result, all the opponents for the March debut of the new coach this year as the successor of coach Paulo Bento have been decided. They will meet Colombia on March 24 and Uruguay on March 28.
Meanwhile, Uruguay will return to Korea after playing a match in Japan on March 24th.
