The ‘Clinsman Lake’, equipped with hot attacking football, will try to win five consecutive A-matches in China’s original sentiment.
South Korea’s national soccer team, led by head coach Jürgen Klinsmann, will play an away match against China in the second Asian qualifying round of the 2026 North-China World Cup at Universiade Stadium in Shenzhen, China, at 9 p.m. on the 21st .
South Korea, which defeated Singapore 5-0 at the Seoul World Cup Stadium on the 16th, will continue its momentum and seek to win away from China.
After a short break after the match against Singapore, the national team was called again on the afternoon of the 18th and tempered at Mokdong Stadium, and left for China, the site of the showdown, early on the 19th.

South Korea has won four straight A-matches since the away match against Saudi Arabia (1-0 win) in Europe in September. He defeated Tunisia (4-0 win) and Vietnam (6-0 win) in Korea last month, and five players, including captain Son Heung-min (Tottenham), scored a great victory in the match against Singapore.
In particular, the offense’s “window” is so sharp that it has scored more than four goals in three consecutive games.
Lee Kang-in (Paris Saint-Germain), who has seen a goal (four goals and two assists) in the last three consecutive games, has established himself as the crown prince of Klinsmann’s team, and Son Heung-min, Hwang Hee-chan (Wolverhampton), and Cho Kyu-sung (Mit Whelan) are also fierce.
In the past, Son Heung-min, who was heavily checked, struggled if he did not break through, but recently, he has been active as attack options such as Lee Kang-in and Hwang Hee-chan have diversified.
South Korea is leading China by a wide margin with 21 wins, 13 draws and two losses. However, we should not let our guard down because we lost 0-1 in the final qualifying round of the World Cup in Russia six years ago in Changsha, China. Since then, Korea has been undefeated in four matches (3 wins and 1 draw).
Ahead of the Chinese expedition, which is famous for its roughness, the Taeguk Warriors emphasized their composure.
After the match against Singapore on the 16th, captain Son Heung-min said, “We also want to be rough when we play against a strong team. “When the Asian team plays against us, we will try to be rough,” he said, adding, “It can be an opponent’s tactic to make you angry and frustrated. “We just have to play without getting caught up in it,” he said.
He added, “China has nothing to fear.”
Meanwhile, China, which will meet South Korea, is also recording one win with a come-from-behind victory of 2-1 in Thailand’s original sentiment on the 16th.
“Korea is a strong team in Asia and a very good team in the world,” Wu Lei (Shanghai), China’s national team’s leading striker, said in an interview with local media. “We will fight against them in a low position. I will do my best to give gifts to my fans,” he said.
