UAE will play an A match against Costa Rica in Zagreb, Croatia, at 1 a.m. on the 13th (Korea Standard Time).

The match is Bento’s debut as the head coach of the UAE. Bento took charge of the Korean national soccer team from 2018 to 2022 and performed well, including advancing to the round of 16 at the FIFA Qatar World Cup.

Bento, who has since laid down the baton in Korea, has received love calls from various teams, including Poland and Turkiye, but refused after much consideration, and recently started a new career as an UAE coach.

Bento will make his official appearance in nine months since he played the World Cup round of 16 against Brazil as the head coach of South Korea in December last year.

The UAE set up a base camp in Zagreb on a schedule of warm-up matches and off-season training, and the atmosphere is good even before the full-fledged departure.

UAE captain Ali Kasif said, “Coach Bento understands our players well and all the training he prepares is satisfactory. “With the current momentum, we will be able to confidently prepare for the upcoming 2026 North American World Cup qualifiers,” he said, expressing great satisfaction with the Bento system.

In addition, UAE media “Dubai Sports” also said, “Coach Bento has accurately checked the skills and characteristics of UAE players and is preparing for the best combination and synergy based on this.” Bento praised him, saying, “He is a reasonable and serious coach.”

Meanwhile, UAE is in Group H with Bahrain, Yemen-Sri Lanka and Nepal-Laos winners in the North-Central America World Cup Asian qualifiers. There is a possibility that the UAE, led by Bento, may face South Korea in the second or final qualifying round.
