Match: South Korea vs Honduras Competition: International Friendlies Time / Date: 14:00h / 28 May 2018 Venue: Daegu Stadium, Daegu.
The Republic of Korea has begun preparations for the World Cup with a match against Honduras this Monday.
The hosts will have to prepare for a group in World Cup with teams such as Germany, Mexico and Sweden, who know how to surprise giants. But South Koreans have a chance to get out of the group but will try to make it with a good start.
They managed to win their place in Russia with some good performance in their defence, which have been missing in their friendly games lately, where they lost 4: 2 and 3: 1 from Morocco and Russia. In November we have been witnesses to results that show another Korea face with wins over Columbia and draw with Serbia.
On the other side are Honduras who will miss this World Cup. They haven’t featured since losing 3-1 at Australia in November, and now they’re returning to action against a qualifier for Russia.
The only recent meeting between these sides was a heavy 4-0 victory for the South Koreans.
The Koreans will find it difficult to keep the defence not touched in this match after they have recorded some weak results just in those positions. They will now meet a visiting team who scored in 5 of their last 6 games and I expect this to be repeated at both ends.
