Paulo Bento has been training South Korean players every day since they arrived in Doha on Monday, with two sessions on Thursday and Saturday. Bento changed a morning practice to a late-afternoon session along the road because the players were looking for a respite from the oppressive climate of the Gulf country.


Before training sessions, the coach had in-depth discussions on the strategy with the players and his staff, as well as film studies. The players will, however, have Sunday off, allowing them to relax and refuel for the next week.


They face Uruguay in their opening Group H matchup on Thursday. The athletes might treat themselves on Sunday to maintain a healthy diet. The Korea Football Association (KFA) deployed two cooks from the national squad to help make some delectable Korean food throughout the campaign. The guys will have a new activity in town to try out on Sunday.


Forward Cho Gue-sung said during the press conference on Saturday that players haven’t gone out much so far in Qatar, deciding to play board games or table tennis at the team hotel instead.


On Monday, they will return to work when they travel to Education City Stadium, the location of all three South Korean group games. At the stadium at Al Rayyan, just west of Doha, on November 28 and December 2, respectively, South Korea will play Ghana and Portugal.
