Now the locals of Qatar must be getting really hot, right?
This World Cup is a tournament with many meanings.
It was recorded as the first ever World Cup to be held in the Arab region and in winter.
With a great opening ceremony, the fierce 29-day battle began.
It was a sight that every Korean who watched the opening ceremony must have felt proud of.
On the main stage of the opening ceremony of the World Cup, the official theme song of the World Cup was sung by Jungkook of BTS, a Korean singer.
Jungkook passionately sang ‘Dreamers’, the official World Cup theme song, with dozens of dancers, and also graced the stage with the popular singer from Qatar, Al Qubaish.
In the opening match that followed, hosts Qatar lost 0-2 to Ecuador.
This is the first time in the history of the 1992 World Cup that the host nation has lost their first game.
After Qatar conceded two goals in the first half, many spectators were seen leaving their seats early.
Foreign media are skeptical that the Qatari government has mobilized spectators to fill the stands.
In fact, out of Qatar’s population of 2.8 million, only 300,000 Qatari nationals are not very interested in football.
As there are 2.5 million foreign workers, there were concerns early on whether it would be possible to fill all the seats during this World Cup.
Reporter Heo went to the training ground in Uruguay, our first opponent yesterday, right?
Starting today, Uruguay will keep all training sessions private, so yesterday, when the opening ceremony took place, I covered the training grounds in Uruguay.
On the contrary, the Uruguayan media gathered at the training ground of our national team today.
I could feel the excitement unique to the South American players in front of me.
I watched him warm up for the first 15 minutes of practice through light games and such.
Suárez and Cavani represented Uruguay, as well as world star Nunes from Liverpool, all in good form.
However, Barcelona defender Araujo, who is recovering from a thigh injury, is certain to miss the match against Korea.
Throughout the coverage, I was asked questions by Uruguayan reporters.
They asked how much Son Heung-min had improved and if he would play in the game against Uruguay.
Starting goalkeeper Rochet, who attended the press conference, also expressed confidence, saying, “I have been watching and studying Son Heung-min for a long time.”
Our national team went on a trip to the City of Education Stadium, where the match against Uruguay will be held this morning, and is now training in the afternoon.
Now, with only three days left until the first game, the time for the decisive battle is drawing near.
