‘Win since debut’ UAE Bentoho completely defeats Costa Rica, who defeated Saudi Arabia

Former South Korea national soccer team coach Paulo Bento won a victory in his debut game as head coach of the United Arab Emirates (UAE)메이저놀이터 national soccer team.

UAE (72nd in FIFA rankings), led by coach Bento, defeated Costa Rica (46th in FIFA rankings) 4-1 in the A match (friendly match) held at Stadion Maksimir in Zagreb, Croatia on the 13th (Korean time).

UAE, which scored three goals in the first half, secured victory by scoring the fourth goal in the 8th minute of the second half. Although they gave up one goal in the 19th minute of the second half, it did not affect the game.

Winning by 3 goals against Costa Rica was close to a surprise. Costa Rica is the team that won 3-1 over Saudi Arabia on the 9th.

Coach Bento, who did not renew his contract with the Korea Football Association, was appointed as UAE coach last July.

Before the game, Coach Bento also received support from Korean soccer fans. Coach Bento is a person who received warm applause by leading the Korean national soccer team to the round of 16 at the ‘2022 FIFA Qatar World Cup’. The public opinion of domestic soccer fans surrounding current coach Jurgen Klinsmann is quite different.

Coach Bento also had the longest tenure with the national team (4 years and 4 months) and was not without noise, but there was no controversy over his outings such as ‘working from home’ like Coach Klinsmann. He is remembered as a coach who watched the K-League while staying in Korea, discovered new players, called them to the national team, and fostered them.

Unlike Coach Bento, who won the first game, Coach Klinsmann enjoyed his first win in 6 games.

The Korean national soccer team (ranked 28th in FIFA rankings), led by Coach Klinsmann, defended Cho Gyu-sung’s header and winning goal in the 32nd minute of the first half in the A-match friendly kick-off at St. James’ Park in Newcastle, England on the same day, defeating Saudi Arabia (ranked 54th in FIFA rankings) by 1. -0 won.

Coach Klinsmann, who had not achieved a single win in five A matches including his debut last March, tasted his first victory in just his sixth game. This is the latest first win of any Korean national soccer team coach in history.
