South Korea to face Greece in February

January 4, 2007

SEOUL, Jan 4 (Reuters) - South Korea will play European champions Greece in a friendly in London on Feb. 6.

The match will take place at Fulham's Craven Cottage as part of Korea's Asian Cup preparations, the Asian Football Confederation said on its website on Thursday.

The teams shared a 1-1 friendly draw in Riyadh when they last met in January 2006.

The game's location will allow Korea coach Pim Verbeek to field a full-strength side with all his English Premier League representatives available.

Korea have been drawn against hosts Indonesia, Saudi Arabia and Bahrain in Group D of the Asian Cup which begins in July.
