The KOR v KYG match preview –

The AFC Asia Cup 2019 will see a game being played between South Korea and Kyrgyzstan in the second game of the group stage on Friday. South Korea won the first game of their group-stage and this is the right way to start the tournament. Being one of the favourites to clinch the trophy, the Koreans are eyeing an easy way to the finals of the tournament. Given that their star player Son will be returning in few days, this gives the coach the chance to experiment with the side till they become a solid unit who won the Gold Medal in the Asian Games.

Meanwhile, Kyrgyzstan is still trying their best to fit in the culture of football of Asia. The side is from a cold region of the world, and there football isn’t the biggest sport. Wrestling is given higher precedence, and if this team is able to prove their doubters wrong, it might turn out to be the turning point for the players and how they get viewed by their countrymen.
