Korea to face Brazil

FOOTBALL

Korea will take on Brazil in a men’s football friendly in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) next month, officials announced Thursday.

The Korea Football Association (KFA) said Korea, coached by Paulo Bento, will face Brazil at Mohammed Bin Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi, UAE, on Nov. 19. The match will kick off at 10:30 p.m. Korean time.

It will come five days after Korea plays an away match against Lebanon in the second round of the Asian qualifying for the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

Korea and Brazil played against each other for the first time in 1995, in Suwon, Gyeonggi, and since then, they’ve played each other a total of five times. Korea has one win and four losses against Brazil, the lone victory coming from March 1999 in Seoul.

The KFA said Bento will announce his roster against both Lebanon and Brazil on Nov. 4.
