Next month, the national football team A match is expected to be held in Busan and Daejeon.
The Korea Football Association (KFA) announced on the 16th that “the venues for the two national football team friendly matches to be held on June 16 and 20 have been confirmed in Busan and Daejeon, respectively.” The national soccer team is aiming for its first victory since the appointment of coach Jurgen Klinsmann through two consecutive matches against South American countries during the A match in June. Klinsmanho’s record of two matches so far is 1 draw and 1 loss, so there is no victory yet. The national team will first face Peru on June 16 at the Busan Asiad Main Stadium. On the 20th, they will play against El Salvador at the World Cup Stadium in Daejeon. All times are the same at 8pm.
It has been 3 years and 6 months since the E-1 Championship (East Asian Cup) in December 2019, and the A match in Daejeon is one year after the friendly match against Chile in June of last year. At the East Asian Cup in Busan, Korea won the championship with a 3-game winning streak, and in Daejeon against Chile, Hwang Hee-chan (Wolverhampton) and Son Heung-min (Tottenham Hotspur) scored consecutive goals to win 2-0.
However, looking at the past record, it is not expected that it will be an easy match. The record of Korea and Peru is behind with 2 matches, 1 draw and 1 loss. In 1971, they lost 0-4 in an away friendly game, and 10 years ago, in August 2013, in Suwon, coach Hong Myung-bo took the baton and led to a 0-0 draw. It is the first time to meet El Salvador in an A match 메이저놀이터.
Also, there are voices that we still have to wait and see for the A match held in Busan. Since the 29th Dream Concert will be held at the Busan Asiad Main Stadium on the 27th, serious damage to the lawn may make the game difficult.
In this regard, an official from the Korea Football Association said, “It is a well-known fact that the soccer team players and soccer fans should not be harmed. I have already expressed my opinion to the city of Busan that the condition of the lawn is concerning, and the first preliminary due diligence has been completed.” Then, an official said, “We plan to check again through a second due diligence after the concert, and it is possible to change the venue if it is judged that restoration is difficult.”
