They were fierce rivals back in Turkey when one was playing for Fenerbahce Grundig while the other for VakifBank. They are also fierce rivals today in Japan, while trying to help their national teams to reach the Rio Olympics.

But, Kim Yeon-Koung and Robin de Kruijf are friends at first place.

This picture was taken after the game between South Korea and Peru and just before the match between Netherlands and Italy.

You can see Kim Yeon-Koung helping Robin de Kruijf who is still recovering from ankle injury.
