With the upcoming FIFA World Cup in Qatar, South Korea can expect some exciting duels, without a lack of interesting context. The draw for the football match took place on Friday in the host capital of Doha. South Korea is in Group H with Ghana, Uruguay, and Portugal. Football World Cup fans can buy South Korea Football World Cup Tickets from our website.

Games will start on November 21, but the Group G and H teams will be the last to embark on their journey, with their first game scheduled for November 24.

South Korea avoided teams like defending champions France and perennial contenders Brazil, despite not having an easy group at the World Cup.

Group H will have some subtitle names. South Korea is led by Tottenham’s top scorer Son Heung-min. Son is currently joint second in the Premier League with 13 goals. The 29-year-old will aim to become the second South Korean player to score in three consecutive World Cups after former midfielder Park Ji-sung.

The son, one goal behind in the Premier League, is Cristiano Ronaldo, the Portuguese star returning for his second stint with Manchester United. With five FIFA Ballon d’Or awards to his name, Ronaldo is widely regarded as one of the greatest players of all time. He has won numerous titles during his career, including five Champions League titles, but the World Cup has put him off. His closest came to his World Cup debut in 2006 when Portugal lost to France in the semi-finals on penalties.

Ronaldo, 37, may not get another chance after this year’s game.

South Korean fans hold a collective grudge against Ronaldo. In July 2019, Ronaldo visited Seoul with then-Italian club Juventus to play an exhibition game with the K-League All-Stars. The Seoul World Cup Stadium was packed with some 65,000 fans, and the fans who went to see Ronaldo went home angry and disappointed, the biggest star in the room, the one everyone was watching, not even from the couch.

Angry fans are suing local game organizers for partial refunds of their tickets in separate court decisions in 2020 and 2021.

In another interesting context, Portuguese-born South Korean coach Paulo Bento will try to beat his home country in his first World Cup as a backup to Korea.

The two countries have only met once in the group stage of the 2002 World Cup. Which was jointly hosted by South Korea and Japan. South Korea won 1-0 after Park Ji-sung’s goal, with Bento playing the entire game as a midfielder. Qatar FIFA World Cup fans can buy Korea Republic Vs Portugal Tickets from our website.

Portugal defeated Turkey and North Macedonia in the European qualifiers to qualify for this year’s World Cup. The fans here don’t have fond memories of Uruguay either.

South Korea and Ghana will face each other at the World Cup for the first time

At the 2010 World Cup in South Africa. South Korea reached the round of 16, the first time they did so during a World Cup away. But the Taeguk Warriors lost 2-1 to Uruguay, with Luis Suarez scoring two goals for the winning side. South Korea lost some scoring opportunities in the defeat. While Uruguay reached the semi-finals, their best World Cup performance in 40 years.

Suarez still plays for Atletico Madrid in La Liga. He scored 21 goals in 32 games last season and nine in 28 this season.

He has played everywhere and should be one of the few defenders of the opposition. In the South American qualifiers for the World Cup, he was in second place with eight goals.

Uruguay finished third in that race, well behind Brazil and Argentina and only ahead of Ecuador. Uruguay scored 22 goals in 18 games but also conceded 22.

South Korea and Ghana will face each other at the World Cup for the first time this year. So far, they have played six head-to-head matches, with three wins and three defeats each. Ghana’s last game was a 4-0 win in a friendly in Miami on June 9, 2014.

It was South Korea’s last friendly before that year’s World Cup in Brazil. After that humiliating defeat to Ghana, South Korea was eliminated from the World Cup group stage, tied with Russia, and lost back-to-back to Algeria and Belgium.

Ghana took the World Cup by beating Nigeria by an away goal in the African qualifiers.

Portugal is the highest-ranked team in Group H in 8th place, followed by Uruguay (13th), South Korea (29th), and Ghana (60th).
