The SAU vs NK match preview –

The AFC Asian Cup 2019 will see Saudi Arabia take on North Korea in the first game either team will play in the tournament on Tuesday. Saudi Arabia are coming off a decent outing at last year’s FIFA World Cup in Russia. The team won a game against Egypt but were outshone by Russia and Uruguay. This competition gives them the opportunity to exorcise those demons in order and prove they are one of the better sides in Asia.

Meanwhile, North Korea have also participated in the FIFA World Cup. The team doesn’t have any superstar quality, but the attacking philosophy they have adopted has brought the nation some serious success. Even though a lot is talked about this country in its political sense, the beauty of sport is that it transcends all these frugal arguments. The players will be pumped to showcase their ability at this big stage.
