Friendly v Saudi Arabia (4/1/15 in Sydney)

4 January 2015
(Parramatta Stadium, Sydney, Australia)
Saudi Arabia v South Korea

South Korea will face Saudi Arabia on Sunday in its final tune-up match before the AFC Asian Cup, testing its mettle against a potential quarterfinals opponent at the continent’s largest football tournament.

Coached by Uli Stielike, South Korea has been training in Sydney since last Sunday. The match against Saudi Arabia will kick off at 8 p.m. local time, or 6 p.m. in Seoul, at Pirtek Stadium here.

This year’s Asian Cup will start next Friday with a Group A match between the host Australia and Kuwait in Melbourne. South Korea is also in Group A and will open its tournament Jan. 10 against Oman in Canberra.

South Korea will stay in Canberra to face Kuwait on Jan. 13 and close out the group stage against Australia in Brisbane on Jan. 17.

South Korea is trying to win its first Asian Cup title since 1960. It hasn’t reached the final since 1988.

Saudi Arabia is in Group B with Uzbekistan, China and North Korea. South Korea and Saudi Arabia could clash again in the quarterfinals should both countries survive the group stage.

In its previous tune-up match for the Asian Cup, Saudi Arabia lost to Bahrain 4-1 in Melbourne on Tuesday.
