It’s been long rumored, but the KFA has officially announced that the November 15 friendly will be against Switzerland. The match will be held, once again, at Seoul World Cup Stadium (aka Seoul Sangam Stadium). A time has not been announced, but I assume it will be around 7 or 8 pm.
Switzerland will be a challenging opponent. They are currently ranked 7th by FIFA and have earned a ranked seeding spot in the upcoming World Cup. Switzerland cruised to the top of their group with 24 points, and went 7-3-0 in their qualifying campaign.
They don’t have too many big “name” players, but they are a strong side overall. Some of the Swiss stars include Xherdan Shaqiri of Bayern Munich, Stephan Lichtsteiner of Juventus, and Gohkan Inler of Napoli.
The second friendly, scheduled for November 19th, has not been determined.
