The national football federation has announced plans to organize an outdoor cheering event in Seoul for South Korea’s upcoming semifinal match at the FIFA U-20 World Cup in Argentina. The event will be held at Gwanghwamun Square in central Seoul and will be coordinated by the Korea Football Association (KFA), the Seoul Metropolitan Government, and the Red Devils, the official supporters’ group for national football teams.
South Korea’s match against Italy is scheduled to kick off at 6 a.m. Friday in Seoul, which corresponds to 6 p.m. Thursday in La Plata, Argentina. The South Korean team, led by coach Kim Eun-jung, performed well in the group stage with one win and two draws. They then secured victories against Ecuador and Nigeria to reach the semifinals.
By reaching the semifinals, South Korea has already guaranteed themselves at least one more match, either the final or the third-place contest. The third-place match is set to begin at 2:30 a.m. Monday in Seoul time, while the final will kick off at 6 a.m. on the same day.
Although South Korea has not won a men’s FIFA tournament, they achieved success by winning the FIFA Women’s U-17 World Cup in 2010. The U-20 World Cup has provided an opportunity for South Korea’s young talent to showcase their abilities on the global stage.cheshirevalleybrewing.com
