South Korea have since won the EAFF E1 title against Japan after being knocked out of the 2019 Asian Cup in the quarter-finals against eventual champions Qatar. These are test times for all football teams where multiple players are unavailable for various reasons. Coach Paulo Bento will try to stabilize the ship over the course of the two friendlies.
Mexico, on the other hand, have won seven of their last eight games. They beat the Netherlands 1-0 in Amsterdam just last month and will deal with the likes of Raul Jimenez to create the spark that could get them across the line against disciplined opposition.
Mexico head to head against South Korea
Mexico and South Korea have given up seven times in the past. Mexico has won three times, South Korea twice. Two games ended in a draw. The last time these two teams met was the 2018 World Cup, and Mexico won the game 2-1 thanks to goals from Carlos Vela and Javier Hernandez.
