The Socceroos will be back in action as the build-up to FIFA World Cup qualification matches continues with a trip to South Korea. This is The Roar’s guide to the match.
Kick-off is scheduled for Friday, June 7 at 9pm (AEST), with the match to be held at the Busan Asiad Main Stadium in Busan, South Korea.
This is a return match, after the sides met in Brisbane last November during the build-up to the Asian Cup, which was held in the United Arab Emirates.
On that occasion, the South Koreans came away with a 1-0 lead, and it’s hardly a surprise that they will go in as favourites once again at home against an understrength Socceroos side.
Both teams will have one eye on the beginning of 2022 FIFA World Cup qualification, with the draw for the second round (which both teams receive a bye to) set to be held in July, before matches begin in September.
