South Korea is playing a pre-World Cup match with Brazil Football news

SEOUL: South Korea will host Brazil with the highest rankings in a friendly match ahead of this year’s World Cup, the National Football Association said on Wednesday.
The national team, captained by Son Heung-min of Tottenham Hotspur, will play in Seoul with Brazil on June 2 and will face Chile and Paraguay on June 6 and 10.
A series of scheduled matches with South American teams will give South Korea “a good opportunity to assess its objective strength and weakness,” the Korean Football Association said in a statement.
The five-time world champions Brazil are the only team to have played at all world championships and can take advantage of some of the best players in the game, such as Neymar of Paris Saint-Germain and Roberto Firmino of Liverpool.
South Korea ranks 29th in the FIFA rankings and entered its tenth World Cup in a row after finishing second in the A-Group in the last round of Asian qualifying.
When the World Championships in Qatar start in November, they will present themselves in the H-group with Portugal, Uruguay and Ghana.
South Korea has advanced to the decommissioning phase only twice.
Their best performance was placing in the semifinals of the 2002 World Cup, which they organized together with Japan. They reached the round of 16 at the 2010 South Africa.
This year, the team will turn to Captain Son, who has scored 19 goals in the 2021-22 Premier League season to bring them beyond the group stage.
