In 2022, South Korea will be participating in its eleventh FIFA World Cup 2022, which will be held in Qatar. On November 24, 2022, South Korea will face Uruguay in their first match of the tournament at Al Rayyan’s Education City Stadium in the opening match of the tournament. In terms of the FIFA World Cup 2022, South Korea has been placed in Group H along with Portugal, Ghana, and Uruguay.
South Korea’s squad for the Fifa World Cup 2022 is expected to be announced in October of this year. As a result, the Taegeuk Warriors were able to secure their place in the tournament without any fuss, finishing second in their qualification group and edging out South Korea and the United Arab Emirates in third place by 11 points.
During this Fifa World Cup 2022, South Korea will be making its 11th appearance at the event. In 1954, they made their debut and failed to score a goal on their way to elimination.
The South Koreans returned to the tournament in 1986 and have not missed a tournament since then. It is a memorable achievement that they reached the semi-finals of a World Cup on home soil in 2002, but they have only managed to qualify for the last 16 of an overseas World Cup on one occasion.

How many players are South Korea allowed to take to the Fifa World Cup 2022?
As a special measure brought into effect because of the COVID-19 pandemic, national managers were allowed to bring 26 players to last summer’s European Championship for the first time at a major tournament.
A 26-player squad has now been announced for the Qatar World Cup, which is an increase from the usual 23-man squads that have been used in the past.
When will the final South Korea Fifa World Cup 2022 squad be announced?
November and December 2022 will be the dates that the Fifa World Cup 2022 will take place. The reason for this is simply that it is simply too hot for football to be played in Qatar during June and July, the normal months for the World Cup to be held.
In order for all competing nations to participate in the tournament, their squads must be submitted to FIFA by October 20, which is 30 days before the game begins. It is expected that Paulo Bento will announce the squad at some point in early October.
Who will make the final South Korea 2022 World Cup squad?
It is expected that Tottenham star Son Heung-min will play an important role in leading his country into the knockout stage of the 2022 World Cup. In Qatar, Paulo Bento will be working hard to develop a game plan that will bring out the best of Son.
A second England-based player, Hwang Hee-chan, will almost certainly be on the plane to the Middle East for the upcoming World Cup, although the Wolves winger will be hoping for a more regular place in the starting eleven of the Premier League next season.
Among the members of this South Korean squad, Kim Young-gwon is the one with the most experience after Son. As of April 2022, the Ulsan Hyundai player has made 91 appearances for his country as a member of the national team.
The other 32-year-old player will be Jung Woo-young, who will have a key role in the center of the pitch. As the midfielder for Al-Sadd, he will sit in front of the back four and be responsible for breaking up the play of the opposition.
