The Korea Football Association (KFA) is discussing a friendly match with the Iraqi national team while the “Klinsmanho” is looking for an appropriate sparring opponent ahead of the Asian Cup finals.

Iraqi media “Shapark” reported on the 15th, “The Korean national team and the Iraqi national team will have a friendly match in Dubai, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), in January 2024.”

The media reported, “It will be the last warm-up match between South Korea and Iraq ahead of the Asian Football Confederation Asian Cup finals.”

However, the explanation of the Korea Football Association (KFA) was different.

The KFA said, “We are discussing the warm-up match against Iraq in January ahead of the Asian Cup. However, nothing has been confirmed yet,” he said, explaining differently from the Iraqi media that reported the venue of the match.메이저사이트

Jurgen Klinsmann, head coach of the South Korean national soccer team, has consistently talked about winning the Asian Cup as his first goal since taking office in March.

South Korea will try to win the 2023 Asian Cup in Qatar in January 2024 for the first time in 63 years since 1960. Iraq can be a suitable warm-up match against Middle Eastern countries such as Bahrain and Jordan, which South Korea has to face in the group stage of the Asian Cup finals.

Meanwhile, coach Klinsmann, who returned home via Incheon International Airport on the 14th, said, “Our goal is the Asian Cup in the end,” adding, “We are confident that we will achieve good results and expectations are high.”

Coach Klinsmann said, “It will be a real game from November. This is the most important time. There are eight A matches before that. “There will be many things that I am not satisfied with during that period, but in the end, I will form the best team in the Asian Cup and perform well,” he said.
