SOUTH KOREA FOOTBALL

HISTORY

The Korea Republic (South Korea) national football team represents South Korea in international association football and is controlled by the Korea Football Association.

South Korea is one of the most successful Asian teams and has participated in eight consecutive and nine overall FIFA World Cup tournaments, the most for any Asian team. Despite going through five World Cup tournaments without winning a match, South Korea became the first and currently only Asian team to reach the semi-final stages when they co-hosted the 2002 tournament with Japan. They have since improved their ability to play on foreign soil and were able to reach the Round of 16 in the 2010 World Cup. They also won the first two editions of the AFC Asian Cup, though they have since been unable to be victorious.

The team is commonly nicknamed "The Reds" by both fans and the media due to the color of their primary kit. This is led to the creation of an official supporting group referred to as the Red Devils in 1995.Koreans were not introduced to football until 1882, when British crew members played a game while their vessel was visiting the Incheon Port. In 1921, the first All Korea Football Tournament was held, and then in 1928, The Korea Football Association was organized, which created a foundation to disseminate and develop football in Korea.In 1940, however, the Governor-General of Korea forced the The Korea Football Association to dissolve.

Following the establishment of the Republic of Korea, the Korea Football Association (KFA) was reinstated in 1948. The KFA became a member of FIFA, the international football governing body, in 1948. The same year, the Korean national team made its international debut at the Olympic Games in London. The KFA joined the AFC (Asian Football Confederation) in 1954.
