However, they were responsible for eliminating Germany, who won the World Cup title in 2014, and had their trajectory on Russian ground interrupted early by taking 2-0 of the South Koreans.
The historic result achieved by South Korea motivated an unusual tribute of the Mexicans, who were benefited by the defeat of the German obtaining the vacancy in the eighth of end. The South Korean embassy in Mexico City received demonstrations of support after the match.
This brief period of glory, however, is part of the story, as the South Korean federation has decided to further deepen the selection. To command this process was called the Portuguese coach Paulo Bento, former Cruzeiro. He has summoned 24 players to this Tuesday’s friendly against Chile and also to the game on Friday, September 7, against Costa Rica.
The start was with the right foot. He defeated the Costa Ricans 2-0. The goals were scored by Jae-Sung Lee in the 35th minute of the first half taking advantage of Heung-Son Son’s penalty shootout rebound and Tae-Hee Nam in the 33rd minute of the final.
