South Korea coach Bento: Real Madrid midfielder Valverde in De Bruyne class


South Korea coach Paulo Bento has no doubts about the quality of Real Madrid midfielder Fede Valverde.

South Korea open their World Cup against Valverde and Uruguay.

Bento said: "Valverde is a fantastic player, of extraordinary technical quality, with a physical dimension... He can be considered, along with (Kevin) De Bruyne, as one of the best midfielders.

"He has a great influence on the way Uruguay plays and from mid-distance he can solve a problem game. They are very strong collectively and individually.

"Uruguay is an extremely well-organised team in all aspects of the game. It is a rival that concedes very few chances to its opponent, with players with a lot of experience at the highest level of competitions. It will be a game that we have to play at a very high level to be able to compete with a team of this quality and experience."
