Despite the disappointment of the recent World Cup qualifiers, South Korea’s national team has announced their 2022 squad. With the exception of three players, all of the squad are in their finals year. This means that the team has a chance to get its campaign back on track at the World Cup in Qatar. It will also be important for the team to get the results it needs to get out of the group stage.
The Korea Republic will have to battle it out against Portugal, Uruguay and Ghana in the Group H. Portugal is considered to be the strongest team in the group. In addition, the team has a player in Cristiano Ronaldo who could play in the tournament’s final. The South Koreans, meanwhile, will have to deal with an injury crisis. Hwang Hee-chan and Hwang Ui-jo are both out of form, while Kwon Chang-ho and Gimcheon Sangmu have not been playing well.
While the South Korean team is known as a powerful Asian team, it has had a tough time in the past international windows. The team’s last two matches were a loss to Japan and a draw with Costa Rica. The team struggled to create many chances in both matches. It also lost to Brazil, which has not made the World Cup final since 1982.
The Korea Republic is led by the longest-serving manager in the history of the team, Paulo Bento. The Brazilian has been in charge for four years and he has done a fairly average job. His tactics have been ineffective against stronger opposition. He was able to take the team to the Asian Cup, but he has been struggling with the warm-ups.
Son Heung-min is one of the players who will be tasked with making the difference in the group stage. He has scored 89 goals for Tottenham and shared the Premier League Golden Boot with Mohamed Salah. In addition, Son is a star player for South Korea, and has been a key part of the team’s success.
The team will have a tough start in Doha. It will face Uruguay, who will be looking to get off to a good start. In addition, South Korea will face Portugal, who has yet to win a final. However, both teams have a chance to get off to a good start in Qatar.
Meanwhile, Hwang Hee-chan has been out of form for a while. He made his European competition debut with Rubin Kazan last season. He has also made several Europa League group matches. He may face Portugal in Qatar later this year.
It’s hard to believe that South Korea would be drawn in a group with Portugal and Uruguay. Both countries have been playing well recently, but they aren’t as household names as they were in 2014. With Korea’s recent wins over Egypt and Chile, fans should have hope. They’ll also have to beat Ghana, which hasn’t had the star power that they did in 2014.
The Korea Republic has not been able to beat Brazil in the past, and they have had a hard time with Costa Rica. In addition, they’ve been beaten by Japan and Cameroon. They were also beaten 5-1 in a summer friendly. The team’s results in the warm-ups were also not good. The team will have to show the fans a good performance at the World Cup in Qatar if they hope to make it out of the group stage.
