[오피셜] We meet again after 6 months… Bentoho faces Brazil in the round of 16

[골닷컴] Reporter Kang Dong-hoon = Bentoho will face Brazil, the ‘Samba Corps’, again after 6 months. This time, it is not a friendly game, but it is competing for the right to advance to the quarter-finals on the stage of the round of 16 of the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.

The Korean national football team, led by coach Paulo Bento (53, Portugal), played Group H in the 2022 FIFA World Cup Qatar group stage against Portugal at 0:00 am (Korea time) on the 3rd in Education City Stadium in Al Rayyan, Qatar. In the last game, they came from behind to win 2-1.

Bentuho, who won that day, rose to second place in Group H (1 win, 1 draw, 1 loss, 4 points). The two points and goal difference were the same as Uruguay in 3rd place (4 points), but they were ahead in the number of points. As a result, it is 12 years since the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, and it has managed to progress to the round of 16 for the second time in history.

It was finally decided that Bentuho’s opponent in the round of 16 was Brazil. Brazil progressed to the final with 1st place in Group G (2 wins, 1 draw, 7 points). On the 6th, at 4:00 am at Stadium 974 in Doha, Qatar, they will face each other for tickets to the quarter-finals.

Meanwhile, Bentuho had a friendly against Brazil in Korea last June. They lost 1-5 at the time. After 6 months, we met again. They have faced each other 9 times in history, and they have only won 1 (1 draw and 7 losses) and are at a disadvantage in the opponent’s record.
