S. Korea looking to continue winning start against Kyrgyzstan


South Korea, led by head coach Paulo Bento, will face Kyrgyzstan in their second match at the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Asian Cup.


South Korea began the Asian Cup journey with a 1-0 win over the Philippines while Kyrgyzstan suffered a 2-1 defeat to China.


By records, South Korea, ranked 53rd in the latest FIFA rankings, are the favorites to win the match with abundant international experience. Kyrgyzstan, No. 91 in the FIFA rankings, are making a debut at the continental tournament.


Still, the Taeguk Warriors may face a more difficult game against Kyrgyzstan than they did with the Philippines as two key midfielders are to be absent from the match.


Ki Sung Yueng and Lee Jae Sung will not be available against Kyrgyzstan due to a right hamstring injury and a sprained right toe respectively.


The match will be held at Hazza bin Zayed Stadium in Al Ain, the United Arab Emirates. The kick-off time is set at 8 p.m. Friday (local time) and 1 a.m. Saturday (Korean time).
