Oh Jung-hee starts us off.
Getting ready for Saturday's Under-20 World Cup final against Ukraine, South Korea's under-20 football team have wrapped up their final practice in Lodz.
The players are excited, but at the same time sad that their long journey is coming to an end.
"I'm excited and happy, but sad at the same time that this is our last practice. I liked this team so much."
The South Korean team showed confidence and a strong will to win against Ukraine.
At a press conference on Friday, the team's coach Chung Jung-yong said Ukraine is a strong team with good power and physical condition... but added that all games are different.
Star midfielder Lee Kang-in stressed that his only goal is to win the championship.
Lee is seen as a strong contender to win the Golden Boot as the tournament MVP thanks to his outstanding playmaking skills,... but Lee said he wants to win against Ukraine rather than earn an individual award.
It's the first time that South Korea have reached the men's final of a FIFA tournament, and the same goes for Ukraine.
South Korean fans will pour onto the streets tonight to cheer for the team during this historic match.
Public screenings have been organized across the country, including at the Seoul World Cup Stadium.
The Under-20 World Cup final will kick off at 6PM Saturday in Poland, or 1AM on Sunday Korea time.
