Korea Football Association announced that the Korean National would face Brazil for a friendly in November. According to KFA, the team would move to UAE to play against Brazil after the World Cup Qualifier against Lebanon.

“It is the first time that we are invited by Brazil Football Association,” KFA added.

This is not the first time two teams are facing each other, though. In 2013, Brazil defeated the host 2:0 in Seoul, South Korea.

Unfortunately, the Brazilian star Neymar is likely to miss it. Brazilian media reported that Neymar would not be called up for his international duty next month.

The 27-year-old  has been suffering from frequent injuries. Indeed, he was absent for the 2019 Copa America as well.
