Bento’s successor debut match Uruguay return match? KFA “negotiating from various angles”

 Who will be the opponent for the debut match of the new coach who will lead the Korean national soccer team? There are rumors that the match against Uruguay has been confirmed, but the Korea Football Association (KFA) reserved its words, saying that nothing has been decided yet.

Recently, KFA is in the midst of finding an opponent for the debut of the new command tower with the successor of coach Paulo Bento. Along with Michael Müller, the National Power Enhancement Commissioner, six members of the Power Enhancement Committee who will be in charge of appointing the director have been confirmed, and a group of candidates is being formed based on expertise, supervisory experience, motivation, teamwork ability, and environmental factors.

Previously, KFA announced that it plans to finalize the appointment of a coach by the end of next month. I am thinking of preparing for the upcoming March A match under the new coaching system. It means that KFA has about a month left. 메이저사이트

In the meantime, news came that the match between Korea and Uruguay had been confirmed. 

Federico Baisan, a reporter from Uruguay’s ‘Telemundo Uruguay’, said on social media on the 29th (hereinafter Korean time), “The A match opponent team the Uruguay national team will meet in March has been decided.” We meet Japan on March 27. The matches will be held in Seoul and Tokyo, respectively.”

However, a KFA official explained in a phone call with OSEN on the 30th, “We are negotiating not only with Uruguay but also with many other countries. We have not signed a contract with any one country at all, we are discussing all of them.” Nothing has been confirmed yet.

Uruguay is a frequent partner of Korea. The two teams also clashed in the round of 16 at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, and also played evaluation matches in Korea in 2014 and 2018. Just two months ago at the World Cup in Qatar, they met in the group stage and drew 0-0.

Meanwhile, even if a head-to-head match between the national team and Uruguay becomes a reality, Diego Godin, Edinson Cavani, Jose Jimenez and Fernando Muslera will not be able to play.

Despite their victory over Ghana in the Qatar World Cup, when they were eliminated due to Korea, they were disciplined for rough protesting to the referee. FIFA fined Jimenez and Muslera four matches and fined 20,000 Swiss francs (about 26.8 million won), and Cavani and Godin were suspended for one match and fined 15,000 Swiss francs (about 20 million won).
