No matter how uncorrelated this might seem, or how much time has passed since the match, we still take pride in winning over South Korea in the 2017 World Cup first group stage, while South Korea won over the 4-times FIFA winner Germany in the 2018 World Cup matches.
Haters gonna hate, but this does mean that we could have taken down Germany if we were just given the chance.
Now, World Cup qualification rounds have started for the 2022 Qatar World Cup and Lebanon has an upcoming second-round match against South Korea on Thursday, Nov. 14, in Madinat Camille Chamoun Al Riyadiyat, also known as Madina Al-Riyadiyat, Beirut.
Throughout the 26 days of the Ongoing 17 October Revolution, revolutionaries have proven support to everything that is culturized by the nature of Lebanon and its friendly people.
From reclaiming the Famous Egg in Martyr Square and the Zaitunay Bay in Marina Beirut to creating a human chain that shows love and solidarity between Lebanese, everyone stood united as we claimed what is already ours.
Another thing that we are for sure proud of is our Lebanese football team. AFP sports journalist Rayane Moussallem has summoned the people of the streets to leave the street for one night and show support to our national team out on the football court!
On Thursday, November 14, our Lebanese National football team will be playing against South Korea at 3:00 pm in the second-round matches to qualify for the 2022 World Cup and for the 2023 Asian Cup.
Rayanne Moussallem issued out a public invitation on her official Facebook and Twitter pages-alongside a photo of a massive Lebanese audience supporting Lebanon in a similar match in 2011.
The invitation says: “I’m calling out for all the protesters on the streets (and non-protesters) to come support our national team.”
اذا بتأيدوا الفكرة بليز النشر على اوسع نطاق. منتخب لبنان كمان بيستحق الدعم وما بعتقد في فرصة مناسبة اكتر من هلأ. كثفوا الدعوات بالساحات من هلأ للخميس.

Her announcement continues with: “The price of the ticket is 5000 LPB and the tickets will be sold at the door, in hopes a day comes where we get to cheer for Lebanon in the World Cup instead of Germany and Brazil.”
To our fellow revolutionaries, you have never failed a call of support yet. Our national team is waiting for you and for your massive support on Thursday!
