      Paulo Bento, the head coach of the national football team, on Monday announced the 23-man roster for two upcoming matches slated for this month.

      Korea will face Lebanon in Beirut on Nov. 14 in the second round of the Asian qualifiers for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, followed by a friendly against Brazil in Abu Dhabi on Nov. 19.

      The roster is mostly the same from the one the previous month, which included key players like Son Heung-min of Tottenham Hotspur, Hwang Ui-jo of FC Girondins de Bordeaux, Kim Shin-wook of Shanghai Greenland Shenhua, and Hwang Hee-chan of FC Red Bull Salzburg.

      The Korean footballers will leave for the matches in the Middle Eastern countries early next week.
