‘Round of 16 in 12 years’ South Korea challenges ‘new history away final round’ on the 6th against luxury member Brazil
(Doha = Yonhap News) Reporter Bae Jin-nam = Korean football, which has advanced to the World Cup round of 16 after 12 years, is now taking on a new challenge, the first ‘away tournament’ ever. But Brazil is the opponent, the strongest in the world.
The Korean national football team, led by coach Paulo Bento, will play Brazil in the round of 16 of the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar at Stadium 974 in Doha, Qatar, on the 6th at 4:00 am (referred to from hereafter as Korean time).
Korea advanced to the round of 16 with a 2-1 come from behind win over Portugal on the 3rd with a dramatic winning goal from Hwang Hee-chan (Wolverhampton) in the 46th minute of the second half in the 3rd final from Group H in the group stage.
Although the goal difference was the same as Uruguay, who recorded 1 win, 1 draw and 1 loss (4 points), Korea, who were leading in points, performed a miracle to advance to the round of 16 by finishing second in the group. behind Portugal (2 wins, 1 loss).
It is the third time in 12 years that Korea has progressed to the round of 16 at the World Cup, including the 2002 Korea-Japan tournament, which created a legend in the semi-finals, since South Africa in 2010.
Now, we are trying to write a new history in the round of 16 of the World Cup away from home, but our opponent is too strong.
Brazil, who topped Group G with 2 wins and 1 loss and progressed to the round of 16, have entered the finals without losing a single match at this year’s 22nd World Cup, and are a powerhouse football has won five. championships, the most in his career.
The current FIFA ranking is also 1st (Korea 28th). Qatar is also considered a strong contender for the championship.
The faces of the players are also wonderful. Of the 26 players on the final list, 22 play in England, Spain, France and Italy, which are the main leagues in European professional football.
The ransom is also staggering.
According to Transfermarkt, a football site that analyzes the market value of players, the market value of the 26 Brazilian players participating in this tournament, that is, the total estimated transfer fee, is 1.14 billion euros (about 1.56 trillion earned).
Of the 32 countries that took part in the finals of this tournament, it was second only to England (1.26 billion euros).
Brazil’s most valuable player is the winger Vinicius Junior (Real Madrid), who is worth 120 million euros. Vinicius Junior is the second most expensive player among the 32 participating countries after French striker Kylian Mbappe (Paris Saint-Germain, 160 million euros).
The total market value of the Korean national team against this is 164.48 million euros (226 billion won). It is one seventh of Brazil.
At least, thanks to Son Heung-min (Tottenham), the top scorer of the English Premier League, the gap is this much.
Transfermarkt estimates Son Heung-min’s transfer fee to be 70 million euros.
However, in Brazil, in addition to Vinicius Junior, Rodrygo (80 million euros), Neymar (Paris Saint-Germain), Gabriel Jesus (Arsenal), Anthony (Manchester United, more than 75 million euros), etc. There are more players with higher ranks. Marchinhos (Paris Saint-Germain) is equal to Son Heung-min at 70 million euros.
However, due to an injury to his right knee, Jejus cannot play in the remaining games of this tournament, including the round of 16 against Korea. It is known that Neymar, who injured his right ankle in the first game against Serbia and missed two games after that, will get a chance to play against Korea.
In the Korean national team, next to Son Heung-min is Kim Min-jae (Napoli), a “monster defender” who costs 35 million euros. Hwang Hee-chan and Lee Kang-in (Mallorca), who are the main players in advancing to the round of 16, follow with 12 million euros.
Among Korean players, these are the only four players whose market value exceeds 10 million euros.
In terms of ransom alone, the Korea-Brazil conflict is a David vs. Goliath battle.
However, Bentuho held on to Portugal (937 million euros), which is close to six times the market value of our team, and fell to his knees.
There were no few surprises in the group stage of this tournament, but it’s even more uncertain what will happen from the round of 16, where you’ll be eliminated immediately if you lose.
If Bentuho surpasses Brazil, the ‘Samba Corps’, a new chapter will once again open in the history of Korean football.
