South Korea vs Tunisia Live Streaming TV Channels, Kick off and Teams News
South Korea welcomes Tunisia for a friendly match on Friday, hoping to prolong their current three-match unbeaten run.
On the other hand, Tunisia’s journey to Seoul World Cup Stadium aims to gather pace as they gear up for the Africa Cup of Nations set for early next year.
Jurgen Klinsmann, taking over as South Korea’s coach in February, faces the challenge of elevating a team endowed with top-tier players. However, they have managed just one win in the last six outings, that victory coming against Saudi Arabia this past September. Recent performances have seen South Korea pull off a 1-1 draw with El Salvador and a 0-0 stalemate with Wales. Though Klinsmann’s reign indicates subtle progress, the team’s scanty five goals in six games might raise eyebrows.
The upcoming matches against Tunisia and Vietnam offer Klinsmann more windows to evaluate his players ahead of the World Cup qualifiers next month.
Tunisia views their Asian tour as a build-up for the Africa Cup of Nations. Their 3-0 triumph over Botswana clinched their spot in the finals, surpassing Equatorial Guinea based on goal difference. Jalel Kadri’s squad, after a setback against their group rivals, bounced back commendably, notably defeating World Cup finalists France. With World Cup qualifiers against Sao Tome e Principe and Malawi slated for November, Kadri is likely to utilize his team thoroughly during matches with South Korea and Japan.

For South Korea, Klinsmann might opt for the lineup that faced Saudi Arabia. This would place Son Heung-min as the central playmaker, backing Cho Gue-sung, who netted the sole goal in their previous game. Hwang Hee-chan, showcasing fine form with Wolverhampton Wanderers, is expected on the left wing, with Kim Min-jae from Bayern Munich anchoring the defense.
On the Tunisian front, Kadri has the luxury to replicate the lineup that emerged victorious against Botswana. Captain Youssef Msakni, having been benched in the last match only to score twice later, is tipped to replace Sayfallah Ltaief on the left. Meanwhile, Sheffield United’s Anis Ben Slimane might pair up with Manchester United’s Hannibal Mejbri in the heart of the midfield.
Projected Starting XI:
South Korea: Kim; Seol, Kim, Jung, Lee; Hwang, Park; Lee, Son, Hwang; Cho
Tunisia: Dahmen; Valery, Talbi, Meriah, Abdi; Ben Slimane, Skhiri, Hannibal; Layouni, Jouini, Msakni.
