The Korean national soccer team, which is trying to win the Asian Cup for the first time in 64 years, will play its second Group E match against Jordan at 8:30 p.m. today (20th) at Altumama Stadium in Doha, Qatar.
As Lee Kang-in and Hwang In-law scored three goals in the first match against Bahrain and took a smooth first step, beating Jordan will confirm the round of 16 at the Asian Cup early.
The Korean national soccer team, led by head coach Jürgen Klinsmann, is 23rd in the FIFA rankings, ahead of 87th-ranked Jordan, and has never lost against opponents with three wins and two draws.
However, there were many analyses that Jordan’s power was stronger than expected, so the national team was on alert.
Jordan defeated Malaysia 4-0 in the first group match to lead Group E by a goal difference.
In addition, South Korea should be careful about accumulating warnings as five people were warned in the first round, and the unexpected knee injury of the main goalkeeper Kim Seung-gyu (Al-Shabab) caused a gap in their power.
If Korea wins against Jordan, it will be able to confirm its advance to the round of 16 early and give key players a chance to rest in the third group match against Malaysia
