– Attention is also paid to Kim Min-jae and Núñez’s head-to-head match.
With the Korean national soccer team playing a ‘return match’ with Uruguay four months after the World Cup in Qatar, attention is focused on whether the key players of the two ‘bad ties’ teams will collide again.
Our national team will have a friendly A match against Uruguay at the Seoul World Cup Stadium on the 28th of next month. Neither country has yet announced their rosters. However, it is expected that most of the ‘elite members’ who participated in the World Cup will play because it is a match held during the FIFA official A match in March, so foreign players can be summoned.
There is already a matchup that is attracting attention. First of all, the confrontation between two young midfielders Lee Kang-in (Mallorca) and Federico Valverde (Real Madrid) draws attention.
During the Qatar World Cup group stage match, Valverde was especially conscious of Lee Kang-in and attempted a rough tackle that could cause injury. Lee Kang-in, who was knocked down by a tackle, caused controversy by performing an ‘uppercut’ ceremony. Valverde also posted a picture of himself roaring at Lee Kang-in, who collapsed, on social media the next day.
The relationship between the two players did not end there. In the 20th round of Spanish La Liga on the 5th, Valverde once again made a dangerous tackle on Lee Kang-in. Even though there was no situation for a rough tackle due to the flow of the game, Valverde threatened Lee Kang-in with both feet. He was cautioned for a tackle, but instead of apologizing, he strongly protested against the referee, raising his eyebrows. 온라인바카라
The confrontation between ‘iron wall defender’ Kim Min-jae (Napoli) and Uruguay’s ‘young gun’ Darwin Núñez (Liverpool) is also attracting attention. In the World Cup group stage, Kim Min-jae blocked Uruguay’s attackers without conceding a goal, but suffered an injury to his right calf in the 18th minute of the second half as he slipped on the grass while following Núñez’s run. It is a memory that Kim Min-jae wants to forget.
Núñez is Uruguay’s most dangerous forward, although he failed to score in the World Cup after being blocked by Kim Min-jae. Attention is focusing on whether Kim Min-jae, who became the best defender in Italy’s Serie A this season, will be able to defeat Nuñez’s brunt once again.
