The first opponent of ‘Post Bento’ is Colombia￼
The first opponent of ‘Post Bento’ has been decided as Colombia.
The Korea Football Association announced on the 6th, “We decided to have a friendly A match with Colombia on the 24th of next month.” The venue and kickoff time have not yet been set. This match is highly likely to be the debut match of the newly appointed coach of the Korean national soccer team.
The Korean national soccer team is looking for a new head coach after ending their partnership with coach Paulo Bento (Portugal) at the end of the World Cup in Qatar at the end of last year.
The second A match, which will be held four days later on the 28th, is also being discussed among South American countries. An official from the association explained, “During the A-match period, countries in Europe and Africa have continental championship qualifiers, and most countries in North and Central America play the Nations League.”
As a result, the war between Korea and Japan, which had been mentioned as a possibility, failed. In an interview with Japanese media earlier this month, Yasuharu Sorimachi, technical director of the Japan Football Association, gave a positive answer to a question asking about the possibility of a match against Korea during the A match in March. 메이저놀이터
It is known that there is a high possibility that the opponent for the second leg of the A match will be decided among countries other than Argentina, the winner of the World Cup, and Brazil, Chile, and Paraguay, who visited Korea last June. Accordingly, Uruguay, Bolivia, Ecuador, Peru, and Venezuela are mentioned as candidates. In this regard, Uruguay media reported that the national team would visit Korea and Japan in March to play an evaluation match. In fact, Colombia will move to Japan after the Korean War and face off against the Japanese national team in Osaka on the 28th. Japan has also confirmed the match schedule against Colombia, but has not yet announced the opponent it will face in Tokyo on the 24th. Nara, who will play against the Japanese national team on the 24th, is expected to come to Korea on the 28th.
Columbia did not participate in the Qatar World Cup, but it is a higher ranking team than Korea (25th) at 17th in the FIFA rankings. In terms of opponents, Korea leads with 4 wins, 2 draws and 1 loss. Led by Argentinian coach Nesto Lorenzo, James Rodriguez (Olympiacos), Davinson Sanchez (Tottenham), Luis Diaz (Liverpool), and Juan Cuadrado (Juventus) are the main players.
