- Venue: Seoul World Cup Stadium (Seoul)
South Korea started the June friendly matches badly, suffering a heavy 1-5 defeat by Brazil, but Paulo Bento's team quickly returned to the winning track, achieving a comfortable 2-0 triumph over Chile. Four days later, since the match with Chile, South Korea was on the verge of another defeat, but the Tigers of Asia returned to the match and drew 2-2 against Paraguay, and will aim to achieve a new triumph. Meanwhile, Egypt will play its first friendly match in 2022, but overall, The Pharaohs do not look good in the African Cup of Nations, as the team comes from a 0-2 defeat by Ethiopia in the group stage. In fact, Egypt is somewhat disappointed, because they failed to secure a ticket to Qatar, as they lost to Senegal after a penalty, and now they are without their star - Mohamed Salah.
South Korea vs Egypt Betting Tips
In 2005, the only clash between these national teams was played, and then The Pharaohs triumphed with a minimum of 1-0, while now South Korea has an ideal opportunity to take revenge on them. South Korea secured the World Cup in Qatar without any problems, so now Paulo Bento's team will aim to prepare his squad the best, so the Tigers of Asia will do everything to finish June in style. Egypt is quite impoverished in the African Cup of Nations - The Pharaohs barely secured a 1-0 triumph over Guinea, while suffering a surprising 0-2 defeat by Ethiopia, so I don't believe they are ready enough to parry South Korea. South Korea will also have some key absences, but with the advantage of the home field, they should achieve a triumph over Egypt, which is out of form.

Woo-Young Jung will be absent in the last friendly match in June with Egypt due to injury, and he should be replaced by Seung-ho Paik in the middle of the field.
Wolverhampton striker Hee-chan Hwang will also be out of the national team for the last June match for unknown reasons, so Ui-jo Hwang should start in attack.
Egyptian star Mohamed Salah will be absent from the field for a while, because after the match with Guinea, it was revealed that the Liverpool striker has problems with injury.
That's not all, because Basaksehir winger Trezeguet and Arsenal midfielder Mohamed Elneny will also miss the match with South Korea due to injuries.
