South Korea will play their last friendly match before the start of the 2014 World Cup on May 28 as they play against Tunisia in Seoul and then will be leaving for the final training days in Florida only 2 days later.
The head coach of the team Hong Myung-Bo revealed that he plans on making his choices on who will be getting into the team before heading to Florida for the final round of overseas training.
"If I make the cut midway through training, it could have a negative impact on team spirit, so I plan to decide the final entries before our training in Florida,” Hong Myung- Bo said.
Ecuador, England, Honduras and Spain also have plans on practicing and having training camps in Florida before the start of the 2014 World Cup but South Korea is also planning on having a few last friendly matches with a team that has a similar playing style like Russia.
Russia is the 1st team that South Korea has to face off when the World Cup initiates in Brazil. FIFA establishes all the teams to arrive to their respective base camp, 5 days before the 1st match starts and South Korea has plans of staying in Florida for as long as possible. South Korea will play Russia on June 17, Algeria on June 22 and Belgium on June 26.
South Korea suffered a 4-0 loss against Mexico and a few days later they played against USA at the Stubhub Center and 2 goals from Chris Wondolowski saw the Americans claiming a 2-0 triumph. South Korea wants to avoid any more losses and this is why they will be training in Florida for as long as possible before travelling to Brazil where the World Cup will kick off.
