South Korea's national football team take on Iraq tonight in their first game in the final qualifiers for the Qatar World Cup.
Kicking off at 8PM, Korea time, at Seoul World Cup Stadium, South Korea has a track record of seven wins, eleven draws and two losses against Iraq.
But several key players, including Tottenham Hotspurs' Son Heung-min, only arrived here a few days ago, after long flights.. so they may or may not be called upon to play.
South Korea's Head Coach Paolo Bento says it's up to the squad to adapt to the circumstances they face.
Leading Iraq is a former head coach of South Korea, Dick Advocaat.
