North and Central America World Cup

The national team is playing a two-game series against Thailand in the 2026 North and Central America World Cup Asia 2nd qualifying round.

The second preliminary round, in which four countries are grouped into one group and compete in a league format,

will last for a total of six games, while Korea will play the third and fourth games in a row against Thailand during the A-match period in March.

In the third match against Thailand held at the Seoul World Cup Stadium the previous day,

Korea was unable to defend Son Heung-min’s opening goal in the first half and ended in a 1-1 draw.

After putting the disappointing result behind them and taking a day off to spend some personal time,

the Taegeuk Warriors gathered back at the airport and left the departure hall with bright expressions.

Thailand (101st) competed on an equal footing with Korea (22nd),

which is 79 levels higher in the FIFA rankings.

Since Thailand has shown great momentum, a more difficult match is expected in the fourth game.

In particular, Korea suffered a decisive defeat in an away trip to Bangkok,

such as losing 1-2 in the quarterfinals of the 1998 Bangkok Asian Games.

In Bangkok, Korea has 10 wins, 4 draws, and 7 losses against Thailand.

It is a record that is difficult to evaluate as having a clear advantage.
