Korea Republic will host Turkmenistan

Korea Republic will host Turkmenistan in a 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifier on Saturday.

The hosts will be looking to get back to winning ways, having suffered a harrowing 3-0 defeat to Japan in an international friendly in March.

Turkmenistan have not been in action since picking up a 2-0 victory against Sri Lanka in a World Cup qualifier way back in November 2019. Abdy Bashimov and Altymyrat Annadurdyyew got on the scoresheet to give the Greens all three points.

The result will go a long way in determining who secures progression to the next round of the FIFA World Cup qualifiers from Group H.

Turkmenistan currently lead the way in the table with nine points from five games. Korea Republic are just behind, having garnered eight points from four matches.

South Korea have been in relatively good form, with four wins registered in their last six games. Turkmenistan are currently on a run of three games unbeaten.
