June is the busiest for South Korean soccer, whether it is the national team or clubs. The National Football Team completed the second round of the 2022 World Cup qualifications. Also, the results went in favor of the national team.
National Football Team betting fans are happy to see the squad topping Group H. Unfortunately, the second round of the qualifiers took nearly two years to complete due to the pandemic. Thus, fans are waiting for the third round of the qualifiers that will start in September.
According to football betting reports, there are 12 teams left for the third round. FIFA will divide them into two groups. Also, South Korea will be in Group 2 with Australia. Thus, the two nations will not meet in the next round. South Korea will go against either Iran or Japan.
South Korean Soccer Success in June
Japan is currently the top team in Asia. However, the two East Asian nations haven’t met in a World Cup qualifier since the 1990s. According to online sports betting sources, South Korea won against Iran four matches in a row. Thus, facing Japan in a qualifier is a breath of fresh air.
Also, there’s a chance that South Korea will face Vietnam, which has a South Korean coach. Park Hang-seo is one of the most famous figures in the South Korean soccer scene. Also, he led Vietnam to the next stage of the World Cup qualifiers for the first time.
Aside from the National Football Team, four South Korea squads saw action in the Asian Champions League. The tournament faced some problems after Australian teams withdrew from it. Also, Chinese teams brought young players and reserves.
Reigning champion Ulsan Hyundai FC will face Vietnam’s Viettel on Saturday. Also, Pohang Steelers will battle Indonesia’s Ratchaburi Mitr Phol. Finally, Jeonbuk Motors will head to Uzbekistan to face Chiangrai United of Thailand.
