National football team coach Paulo Bento said that the upcoming training camp would be the hardest they had. They haven’t won against Brazil in more than two decades. Also, some national team mainstays will be absent due to injuries, including Lee Jae-sung and Kim Min-jae.
South Korea will host Brazil on June 2 as the first friendly match the national team will have in preparation for the World Cup. After Brazil, the national team will face Chile and Paraguay. The national team is still looking for the opponent for their last tune-up match.
National Football Team betting fans might wager on Brazil during the friendly match. Even Bento knows that winning against Brazil will be next to impossible. He said that they would consider everything. Also, they need to help the injured players recover fast.
National Football Team Coach Predicts Challenging Friendlies
According to gambling news reports, there is a short gap between games. Also, the team needs to travel more than usual for the friendlies. Brazil and South Korea will face each other in the World Cup in November. However, Paraguay and Chile failed to qualify for the tournament.
The Korea Football Association scheduled the friendlies against South American teams to help the team prepare for their game against Uruguay. Also, Bento said that Uruguay and the rest of the South American teams are different.
According to sports betting sources, the teams play tactical systems. Also, they are aggressive in every moment of the game. Thus, South Korea needs to experience that during the training camp. Also, the travel restrictions due to the pandemic didn’t allow the national team to play teams from outside Asia in recent years. Bento said that South Korea would have difficulty dominating the ball possession against the three South American teams.
