The Korea Football Association announced on the 29th that it had agreed with the Wales Football Association to hold a friendly match between Wales and the national team on September 7th. The venue is Cardiff City Stadium in Wales, and the game time is undecided.

It has been 5 years and 6 months since the national team played away games against local countries in Europe after visiting Northern Ireland and Poland in March 2018.

Wales has Son Heung-min (Tottenham Hotspur)’s ‘teammate’ Ben Davies. Expectations are already focused on the scene where the two players face each other wearing national team uniforms.

The British media’The Sun’ reported the words of Klins Manho and Wales Football Association President Mooney regarding the evaluation match.

He said, “Many teams are in the Euro qualifiers, so it is not always easy to play against strong teams during the A-match period.” I was satisfied.

“Korea showed a good performance at the World Cup. “It is meaningful to test us against a team that plays a different style of soccer. Korea is giving us such an opportunity,” he added.

This is the first time Korea and Wales face each other in an A-match.

As of the 30th, in the FIFA ranking, Wales is 26th, one step higher than Korea, which is 27th. Wales entered the World Cup finals for the first time in 64 years at the World Cup in Qatar last year, but failed to advance to the round of 16 with 1 draw and 2 losses in the group stage. At the European Championships, they reached the quarterfinals (2016) and the round of 16 (2021) in the last two competitions.

The Wales national team, where world-renowned stars Ryan Giggs and Gareth Bale played an active role, is currently composed of Ben Davies and Aaron Ramsey (Nice, France), who are familiar to Korean fans as Son Heung-min’s Tottenham teammates.

Meanwhile, the match against Wales is the first match of the September A match day period set by the International Football Federation (FIFA). The opponent for the second match has not yet been decided. Since most of the European teams are qualifying for the European Championship (Euro 2024) during this period, they are looking for teams from other continents.
