Likely lineups

At 4 p.m. Italian time on Friday, Dec. 2, at Education City Stadium in Al Rayyan, South Korea-Portugal, a match valid for the third day of Group H at the World Cup in Qatar, will be staged.

In the Fernando Santos-led lineup, which has already snatched a pass to the round of 16 thanks to the successes over Ghana and Uruguay, there could be some changes among the starting eleven: in fact, Rossoneri’s Rafael Leao, Fulham midfielder Palhinha and former AC Milan striker André Silva are set to start from the first minute. A change is also expected in defense, where Antonio Silva could play from the start.

In the Asian ranks, changes especially in the offensive department, with coach Bento seeming intent on opting for a 4-2-3-1. The Korean national team is obliged to win to continue hoping for qualification to the next stage of the World Cup.

Likely lineups.

SOUTH KOREA (4-2-3-1): Kim Seung Gyu; Kim Moon-hwan, Kim Min-jae, Kim Young-gwon, Kim Jin-su; Jung Woo-yung, Hwang In-beom; Lee Kang-in, Jeong Woo-yeong, Son Heung-min; Cho Gue-sung. Ct. Bento.
