The Korean national soccer team will play an evaluation match against Uruguay, the second opponent under coach Jurgen Klinsmann, at the Seoul World Cup Stadium at 8:00 pm on the 28th. 

Uruguay is a familiar partner to Korea. Last year, the International Football Federation (FIFA) Qatar World Cup stage was the first to face off. As the match was tied 0-0, attention is focused on the result of the rematch. 

Uruguay, which we meet in four months, is a little different from Qatar. Key offensive and defensive veterans such as Edinson Cavani, Luis Suarez, and Diego Godin are missing. It means that you are young. 

However, it is still full of threatening players, including Federico Balderde, Matthias Olivera (Napoli), Matthias Viña (Bournemouth), Matthias Vesino (Lazio), Facundo Pellistri (Manchester United), and Giovanni Gonzalez (Mallorca).

It is Klins Manho who needs to dig into Uruguay’s weakness. First of all, the data that Klinsmann can refer to is Uruguay, where he met with the Japanese national team on the 24th. 

Three days ago, Uruguay drew 1-1 with Japan. Uruguay took the lead in the 38th minute through Federico Valverde’s goal. However, in the 31st minute of the second half, Nishimura Takuma’s left-footed non-stop shot allowed an equalizer and missed the victory.

There are various evaluations, but the evaluation made by Uruguay’s national journalist is eye-catching. According to Japan’s ‘Football Zone’, Martin Cáceres, a Uruguayan journalist active in Uruguay’s ‘Pando Penal’, posted on his Twitter immediately after the match, “The draw was a reasonable result. Uruguay was unable to counter the Japanese player’s speed and conceded a goal.” revealed 

He continued, “Uruguay could hardly create a dangerous situation,” and criticized, “There were a few decisive scenes through individual skills, but none from an organizational point of view.” 

In fact, Uruguay struggled against Japan’s speed. In Japan, Kaoru Mitoma’s solo dribble was followed by a breakthrough, and Takuma Asano’s several dangerous breakthroughs followed by shooting. 

In the second half, they struggled against the fast players and eventually conceded. In the 31st minute of the second half, Junya Ito hit in from the right and crossed, and Takuma Nishimura, who rushed into the goal without hesitation, finished with a left-footed non-stop shot. 

Interim coach Marcelo Brolly of Uruguay,안전놀이터 who had the final training session at the Seoul World Cup Stadium on the 27th, said of Korea, “I watched the match between Korea and Colombia. Although Klinsmann has just been appointed coach, I could definitely feel the difference. A faster game. It was noticeable that he did it,” he emphasized, emphasizing that he would be careful of his speed. 

In the end, it seems that Korea will have to attack Uruguay’s poorly equipped organization through a speed battle. There are plenty of options available in Korea, including Son Heung-min (Tottenham), Song Min-kyu (Jeonbuk Hyundai), Lee Jae-seong (Mainz), Jung Woo-young (Freiburg), Oh Hyun-kyu (Celtic), Na Sang-ho (FC Seoul), and Kwon Chang-hoon (Kim Cheon).
