Viva Supports Al-Azrag, you should too!

Viva have invited the Bloggers of Kuwait to attend tomorrow’s match between Kuwait’s National Football team, Al-Azrag, and South Korea’s National Football Team, in a FIFA World Cup qualifier.

Facts (link): 

  • These two nations last met at this very stadium in the 2006 Fifa World Cup qualifiers, with Korea winning 4-0. The result saw the visitors clinch World Cup qualification.
  • Kuwait haven’t lost on home soil since September last year, when they went down 1-0 in Seoul to Iran in a friendly.
  • Despite bowing out of the 2011 Asian Cup without a point, Al-Azraq are considered one of the dark horses to do well in qualification, having won the 2010 Gulf Cup of Nations.
  • The west Asian side have taken on North Korea three times in the past 12 months, drawing with them twice and defeating them once.
  • Kuwait have reached the World Cup finals once, way back in 1982, when they claimed one point, with a 1-1 draw against Czechoslovakia.
  • South Korea, on the other hand, have qualified for the past seven World Cup finals.
  • The Taeguk Warriors were heavily beaten in their last away match, 3-0 to rivals Japan in August.
  • South Korea were runners-up at the 1980 Asian Cup held in Kuwait.
  • Korea skipper Park Chu-Young has happy memories at Kuwait City’s Peace and Friendship Stadium, having made his second international appearance there and scoring his second international goal there, in the aforementioned 4-0 victory.

I have never, in all my 25 years on this planet, been to a football stadium to watch a Football Match. This will be interesting!

It is tomorrow @ 8pm at the Friendship & Peace Stadium in the Kazimah Sporting Club.

Show your national pride, come cheer for Kuwait’ Side!
