The Korean national soccer team, which will be led by coach Klinsman, will face Uruguay in a friendly A-match scheduled at Seoul World Cup Stadium on the 28th. The game against Uruguay is expected to attract great interest in that it will be the first game in which coach Klinsman will appear to Korean soccer fans along with the game against Colombia to be played at Munsu Soccer Stadium in Ulsan on the 24th.
Uruguay is planning to compete with a temporary manager system regarding the coaching staff of the national team for this expedition to Korea. The Uruguay Football Association (AUF) announced on February 28 that Uruguay U-20 national football team coach Marcelo Broly will be responsible for the second consecutive A match in March.
Uruguay coach Diego Alonso, who was in charge of the team after the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, resigned from his position after taking responsibility for failing to advance to the round of 16. Since then, the Uruguay Football Association has been working hard to appoint a new head coach, but there are no tangible results yet.
Broly, a 44-year-old young coach, debuted as a coach in 2016 as head coach of Progreso, and has since directed Danubio, Villa Teresa, Penarol, and the Uruguay U-20 national team. Except for Villa Teresa coaching, he has been an assistant coach or coach at youth level. Although it is a temporary coaching position, the two consecutive A matches in March have become the biggest team in Broly’s position.
As the leader in command of the U-20 national team, it is of interest to see which players will be called up for the away trip in this A match. Attention is focusing on whether the team will be built around young prospects who know his style well, or whether he will bring in the main players of the current national team. Meanwhile, some star players, such as Edinson Cavani, Jose Jimenez, and Fernando Muslera, cannot accompany the team on this expedition to Korea. They were disciplined by FIFA for arguing against the referee after the Qatar World Cup match against Ghana.
