The KOR vs URU match preview –
In an international friendly game, Korea will be playing hosts to Uruguay in what is expected to be an intriguing affair on Friday.
Korea were unable to make it out of the FIFA World Cup 2018 group but showed a tremendous spirit in the three games they played. With a win over the then defending champions in Germany, Korea showed that they are still one of the best teams to play football in Asia. They followed that performance with a gold medal in the recently concluded Asian Games as well. The team is going strong and this could very well be another golden generation of footballers for the country since 2002.
Meanwhile, Uruguay too are a team that had a decent showing at the World Cup. Even though they bowed out of the tournament with the loss to champions France, The South Americans did have a class about them. Extremely robust in defence, Uruguay fixed an issue that had plagued the team for many years. With Copa America up for grabs next year, veteran head coach Oscar Tabarez will be eyeing a final hurrah before retiring from management.
