Friendly match between South Korea and Serbia, which will face off in Seoul in a match-up for two teams to be seen in the World Cup.
A lot of faith has taken bookies in South Korea after their victory against Colombia. The reality is that South Korea won the Colombian team suffering from the usual problems of the Asian team: defensive weakness in their area and little hit in the opposite area. However, a regrettable game of the Colombian team (I have not seen anything worse in a long time) made the Koreans very comfortable controlling their field, well placed and not suffering almost. In spite of this, any direct ball to the Korean area was a drama, and this was seen in the final minutes in which Colombia chose to play directly and almost tied a game in which he could not play worse (we added that his goalkeeper sang ” by soleares “in both goals, the few Korean approaches).
Korea is in the transition phase after qualifying for the World Cup miracle (almost leaving them the almighty Syria), cease their coach and prepare a participation in the world that (you remember me) has a tendency to be pathetic. In their last match, before the Colombian show, they fell 4-2 to a Russia that only needed to play well for about 60 minutes to wipe out the Korean team. As I said in another pick, call with 13 changes regarding that game and still, they have been out major players like Ji Dong-won (Augsburg), Lee (Crystal Palace, injury) or Kim (central Shanghai Senhua). In this sense players like Ki from Swansea or Son del Tottenham stand out, on a mediocre call based on the local league.
For its part, Serbia already gave us a good green with its convincing victory against China. It has qualified for the World Cup and still has not been exempt from criticism for the Serbian game. The Balkan team has already been in Asia for several days, so the schedule change should not be a problem, and competing well as demonstrated against China. As I said, call based on the best leagues in Europe, despite leaving out men like Matic, Nastasic or Fejsa, have entered people like Zivkovic, Mitrovic, Dusan Tadic, Ljajic, Ivanovic, Kolarov, Rukavina … a real great team . In addition, the Serbian style hits specially the Korean deficiencies, like the aerial game, the direct balls and the stopped ball. In those games, the Serbian strikers can make a “son” of a defense that suffers a lot in that aspect.
I expected attractive quota for Serbia but under no circumstances expected to appear as “dog” in this game. Korea is very bad and a good score against an unfortunate Colombia does not change my vision. In this sense, a Serbia that harms the main Korean deficiencies should be a favorite, from my point of view. Therefore, a lot of value in this quota.
