South Korea will round off their preparations for the upcoming FIFA World Cup finals in Qatar with a friendly against Iceland on Friday. The Asian outfit are drawn in Group H and will begin their campaign against Uruguay on November 24 before taking Ghana and Portugal on November 28 and December 2 respectively.  The Taeguk Warriors played two friendlies at the end of September, while Iceland are heading into the match on the back of a narrow 1-0 defeat to Saudi Arabia on Sunday. The Vikings have not qualified for the  global event and are aiming to prepare for the upcoming UEFA Euro 2024 qualifiers. 

The Taeguk Warriors have been present in every World Cup since 1986, and famously finished fourth in the 2002 tournament at home. In the last edition of the competition, the Tigers of Asia famously got the better of Germany in the group stage, but failed to make it to the knockout stages. This time around, Paulo Bento’s side need to be at their best to navigate through a tough group consisting of Uruguay, Portugal and Ghana. Meanwhile, the Taeguk Warriors have actually lost just one of their last eight matches across all competitions. Their latest outing against Cameroon ended in a 1-0 win courtesy of Tottenham Hotspur striker Son-Heung-min’s 35th-minute strike. 

Iceland, on the other hand, failed to qualify for the World Cup in Qatar. The Baltic nation managed to secure only a fifth-place finish in their qualifying group, having pocketed nine points from 10 games, nine points adrift of the second-placed North Macedonia, who went through to the playoffs. Iceland’s latest outing against Saudi Arabia ended in a 1-0 loss courtesy of Saud Abdulhamid’s 26th-minute strike. Arnar Vidarsson’s side will follow this fixture with a Baltic Cup semi-final clash against Lithuania before looking ahead to next year’s Euro 2022 qualification matches.
