SWE vs KOR Match Result - FIFA WC 2018
1 - 0
Korea Republic
A. Granqvist (P) 65'

SWEDEN BEAT SOUTH KOREA IN THEIR FIRST WORLD CUP MATCH IN 12 YEARS. That's their first win in an opening match since 1958. Well deserved, that one. 

Anirudh Menon signing out. Toodle-ooo!
92' OH MY! OH MY! OH MY! Son's delivery caused all sorts of confusion insed the Swedish box, Granqvist's clearance smacks of Kiese-thelin's arms and the Koreans are up in arms. Thelin's arms are right by his body, though. Nothing he can do. 
91' WOAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH! KOREA! Just as I moan as to the ineffectual of crossing into a box full of 6 and a half foot tall Scandinavians; Kim's superb ball is headed across the face of goal by Jung Woo-Young - to Hwang; who, totally free inside the box, heads his effort well wide of Olsen's near post. Should have grabbed the equaliser there, should Korea's best forward of the match. 

90' OH! OH! Son does get on the ball, and he tries to slip in Ki, but the ball's an utter waste. They'd worked themselves into a decent bit of spae had those two. Four minutes to be added on
89' Korea need to find a slice of magic somewhere. They need to get the ball to Son. 
88' Lee Sung looks to play in Hwang, but Granqvist gets in his way; Son pings it out wide to Kim Min Woo - who's ball into the box is rather easily cut out by Svensson
86' The industrious Claesson does superbly to rob Lee Seung Woo off the ball and the Swedes play some keep ball of their own. Game management. 
85' It's all a bit scrappy now - Sweden are really good at defending 1-0 leads, just ask Italy - and Korea are struggling to penetrate this massive block of yellow shirts in front of Olsen's goal. 
83' A lazy header from Jansson almost allows Jung Woo-Young to scream onto the ball - but Granqvist and Svensson hold their nerve and clear the ball up the field

82' The corner comes to nothing. Ki then looks to pick out Hwang's late run into the box but the ball's got just too much oomph to it. 
81' Son's delivery comes to nothing, but after a bit of faffing around they pass it to Lee Seung-Woo, who's come into the game with real intent - has a whack at goal that bounces off Granqvist and out for a corner.

80' Hwang wins a freekick with a cleaver bit of play - drawing Granqvist into a foul 30 yards out, just right of centre
79' Gustav Svensson come on instead of the superb Seb Larsson's who's taken  knock in tackling Heung Min Son. More seconds eaten up, this, as the Korean contingent boos him off the park. The Swedes look to drown it out with loud applause of their own
78' Korea play some much better football now. Lee Seung-Woo twists hither, thither, and ends up losing the ball to Larsson. Young drags Korea back up the field - but his whipped delivery is easily seen off by Granqvist. Bread and butter
77'  OH! OH! OH! Hwang slips as he looks to seize upon Son's superb cushioned-header from Kim Min Woo's lovely dink -- and the chance to have a shot at goal goes begging. 
76' The Swedes kill a few more seconds as they take off Toivonen and bring on Isaac Kiese-Thelin in his stead. 
75' Ola Toivonen's gone to the ground as a part of his running battle with Young - but the ref asks him to get on with it. Korea move forward with real intent but Seung Woo loses it. 
73' The Asian Messi, Lee Seung-Woo, comes on in Koo's stead as Tae-Yong Shin hoists that good ol' kitchen sink on his shoulders and throws it at the Swedes. For those who don't know, this lad is said to have Leo Messi' U-13 scoring record at La Masia

72' Korea move forward down the flanks, Sweden allowing them all of the freedom to do so. The man mountains in the Swedish backline will see all of this of all day long.  
71' The excellent Albin Ekdal is taken off for the impossibly named Oscar Hiljemark of Genoa. Touted to be a big talent, this lad
70' OH LOVELY FOOTBALL FROM SWEDEN! Claesson stopped Ki as he looked to pass his way out of trouble at the edge of the box. The ball fell to Toivonen who's run almost led to Berg seizing upon it. Took another lovely Young tackle to stop him. 
69' Son looks to dribble his way through trouble is Ekdal is having none of it. The Swedes move it forward and it takes a good block from Jang to stop Forsberg from screaming one of his specials into the Korean goal
68' The Swedes will fall back into their solid lines of yellow now, won't they. This is not going to be easy for the Koreans
66' THe Koreans make a change as that giant Kim Shin Wook is taken off for Jung Woo-Young as they look for an equaliser

Ah, the wise old man waits for Jo to fall to one side and steers the ball into the other corner. Smashing penalty
61' OOO! A couple of tasty tackles fly in as first Young Lee is taken out (fairly, adjudges the ref) by Forsberg and Hwang gets smashed into by Viktor Claesson. Who wins himself the grand prize of one yellow card. 
60' They play it short and win another. Which is well cleared by the Swedes; and Larsson does well to win a freekick off Ki to ease this sudden burst of pressure on their goal. 
59' Hwang harries and hassles Granqvist into giving the ball away --  before ripping into the box and attempting to square it across the face of the box; where Jansson is on hand to steer it clear for a corner. 
58' Ola Toivonen steams forward and bullies Kim Min Woo to win a corner. Which comes to nothing.
57' Under considerable pressure, Ki comes up with a belter of an interception to push Korea forward -- and Sung wastes their initiative with a hopeless whack at goal that doesn't clear the Swede parked five yards in front of him
56' OH! OH! OH! Larsson swings in a delightful ball that Toivonen leathered at goal with his head - but straight at Jo in the Korean goal. 
55' Hwang gets into the ref's book for a petulant kick out on Augustinsson. Naughty, naughty - the Korean tried to get the ball through Augustinsson's prone body
54' Kim Min Woo smashes into Claesson and he's a lucky man that the ref sees it as a mere foul. Couldn't have had complaints if it was a yellow. 
53' The game's got a rather stretched quality to it now - proper end to end stuff with the midfield being passed over like they're both playing for Stephen Constantine/Tony Pulis
52' OOO! KOO! The midfielder ghosted, unmarked, into the box where Kim's cross met his forehead perfectly; but his header fizzed just wide of Olsen's near post. 
50' The Koreans are playing it around a touch better now - and Seb Larsson's forced to pull back Koo as the Augsburg lad tried to drbble his way through the middle of the park. He then ended up plunging his knee into Koo's calf. OUCH!
48' OH FORSBERG! OH EMIL! Claesson broke forward from a quickly taken Larsson freekickm before shimmying in and teeing up Forsberg for the Forsberg shot. All the Leipzig magician could do, though, was smash it into row Z
47' Koo plays a lovely sweeping ball out to Lee Young down the right flank; he plays it first time into the box where Olsen collects it easily. The right back's furious that no one made the run to the near post. Those at the far post are bemoaning that he went near post in the first place.
46' Sweden look for Berg from the get-go and have already pegged Korea all the way into their own box. But Lustig's long throw is straight into the hands of Jo

The Koreans'll need to play considerably better - or hope that Sweden continue to finish like visually impaired men - if they are to keep a cleansheet. 

A great half of football that see-d one way and saw-d the other; but ended with the Swedes palpably better than Korea.
45' + 2' OH BERG! Claesson sends in a lovely whip that Berg smashes off Young's shoulder and off for a corner. Which causes a measure of confusion; but ends with Jo hanging onto the ball for dear life. The Korean keeper has been magnificent. 
45' + 1' Granqvist, Toivonen and Larsson try to one-touch pass their way through the Korean defensive unit, but Larsson's ball is just behind Toivonen. 
45' Two minutes to be added on
44' From the corner, Forsberg has a whack that smashes into Larsson, who in turn tees up Granqvist; but the skipper's shot is tame and easily kept out by Jo
43' OH MY LORD WHAT A BRAVE TACKLE! With Ola Toivonen screaming into the box and the ball bouncing to him just outside the six-yard box, Ki Sung-Yeung times a superb tackle to perfection and manages to limit the damage to a corner. It all started with Berg running onto a lovely chip and dinking a useless effort across the face of the goal from a tight angle
41' Forsberg steals from a dawdling Hwang and then dawdles on the ball himself which allows Hwang to win it back  -- and OOOO! Korea move forward superbly, Son playing a give and go with Koo -- and as the Spurs man screams into the box Augustinsson stops him with a solid tackle. The ref waves away half-hearted Korean appeals for a penalty. 
40' The banks of white defenders do their job and now it's their turn to push forward; but a loose Hwang touch allows Claesson to steal it and it's Sweden moving relentlessly forward once again.
38' OH! Augustinsson sends Son for a glass of water with a lovely shimmy down the left flank and Sweden play some keep ball deep inside the Korean half. This is all them, now with the koreans forming three lines of men. 6 in one, three in the other, and the lone figure of Kim Shin Wook up front  
37' A sublime Sung tackle stops Forsberg in his tracks - the Swedes are absolutely furious that the ref didn't see it as a foul -and the Koreans race forward... only for Sung's pass to Son not finding it's intended target. It takes Berg to calm a furious Forsberg, who was this close to yelling his way into the ref's naughty book. 
36' Emil Forsberg drops a shoulder and races away from Lee Young, but he overdoes it with an unnecessary drag flick and the ball runs out of play
35' WOOF! SON HEUNG MIN RACES FORWARD WITH A PACE THAT COULD NOT BE MATCHED BY ANYONE IN YELLOW - OR WHITE - and consequentially his ball in is cut off by Granqvist who's thrown the whole of his ageing frame at it. 
34' Jang Hyun-Soo bombs forward and tries to play in a horrendously (for Sweden) free pair of Lee Jae-Sung and Son; but the pass is even worse than the Swedish marking. 

33' Claesson looks to play in Berg early with a whipped cross, but the Koreans read it well and hold their line. Offside. 
32' There already have been more fouls this half than in any other this Cup - 19. AND THERE'S NEARLY FIFTEEN MINUTES TO GO. Clean, family friendly affair, this. 
31' OH! The Koreans defend another Swedish attack -- and Son looks to break with the scary rapidity of the Taeguk Warriors of '02; but Granqvist is having none of it and shoves him off the ball. Nothing comes off the freekick; which is near the halfway line. 
30' That corner comes to nothing as Pontus Jansson's called out from some infringement or the other inside the Korean box. Oh, and Victor Lindelof isn't starting 'cos he's got the flu. Call off the petition. Call it off!
29' OOOH LA LA! Forsberg swings it to Berg whose header bounces of Granqvist's massive back and it takes another immense tackle from Kim Young-Gwon to stop the Swedish striker's shot troubling his keeper

28' Park Joo Ho goes off and Kim Min Woo comes on in his stead. His first job willbe to defend a Swedish corner... 
27' Park Joo Ho goes down with a horrendous yelp of pain, holding his thigh as he jumps to try and retrieve a mad Su ball.  The Koreans are seran wrapping his thigh. I have never seen that before!
25' Hwang goes with a high boot on Forsberg, who's boot was equally well raised - the Swede got the ball though, and Hwang the Swede, so that's a talking to. 
24' Ekdal looks to find Forsberg's sneaky run in behind the wall of white stationed at the edge of the Korean box; but Lee Yong reads it to perfection. 
22' Korea look to break at pace, but a lovely Larsson tackle stops that in his tracks. Sweden have well and truly turned this match on it's head.  
21' The corner is pinged to Ola Toivonen's considerable noggin' but he thumps his header well wide. 
20' OH MY GOOD LORD! JO HYNG WOO TAKE A BOW! WHAT A SAVE! Ekdal bulled two men in white down by the corner flag and Forsberg swung in a teaser that Claesson kept alive at the far post. After a touch of pinball, the ball fell to Marcus Berg five yards out -- and he smashes it straight at Jo in the Korean goal. Terrible finish, outstanding keeping
19' The Swedes are hogging the ball at the moment, and the intensity of their game is ratcheting up exponentially. 
18' MY! MY! SWEDEN! Granqvist channels his inner Beckenbauer and screams forward - plays a give-and-go with Marcus Berg, who gives with a sumptuous backheel flick - and he almost seizes upon the ball inside the box; only to be stopped by one of the best tackles you'll ever see. Kim Young-Gwon, take a bow. 
17' The Swedes have pegged Korea further and further back into their own half and oh.... 
16' The Swedes are now mixing up the long and short - long to Berg, and short when that gets repelled.
15' The Swede's have finally learnt the little round thing's name and are moving forward with far more intent and purpose than they've mustered all day. This, though, allows Korea to break when they intercept and Koo sets one off with a lovely interception and pass into Son's path. The Spurs man looks to nutmeg Lustig, but the Swedish veteran is having absolutely none of that. 
14' OH SWEDEN! Their first real attack is prompted by a lovely backheel from Claesson allows Berg to get the ball in space inside the Korean box. He tries to pick out Toivonen or Forsberg at the far post, but he smacks the ball into a crowd of players and it rebounds out. The ball's recycled to Claesson. who's whip in is held superbly by Cho
13' Some overenthusiastic pressing from Kim Shin-Wook leaves Albin Ekdal in a bundle of pain near the halfway line; and that's a yellow for the big man. 
12' The Koreans are pressing everything in their own half - but nothing in the Swedish half - and the moment, Forsberg touches it, two white shirts converge on him. 
10' Marcus Berg and Kim Young - Gwan go up in the air for fifty-fifty and the Swedes are furious when the refs give the Koreans a freekick. The Asians, though, immediately hand it back with a horrendously loose pass, but Jang is let off the hook when Claesson hurries his pass and leaves Berg with no chance chasing it. 
8' Marcus Berg and Ola Toivonen, the striker duo, haven't had a touch of the ball between them. It's been all Korea. 
7' Korea scream forward down the left, Koo and Son making Lustig's life difficult.The Koreans have pitched their tents in the Swedish third now; but that doesn't mean this is not what they want -- they got here by defending for their lives and seizing the one or two opportunities that came their way. 
6' Sweden move forward with more urgency than has been seen all day; but he gets no change out of Park as he seeks a corner. Goalkick. 
5' OOO! After another Claesson foul on Park Joo Ho, Heung Min Son swings in a lovely ball that ends with Kim Shin Wook fouling Jansson inside the Swedish box. 
4' Olsen comes out strongly and claws the ball away from the forehead of the massive Kim Shin-Wook. 
3' Viktor Claesson shapes to cut inside from his favoured right wing haunt, but Park Joo-Ho's got his number. The Koreans are mixing it up with short passes and long ones -- but it takes a touch of genius and a dribble at speed from Hwang Hee-chan to make something happen. A Korea corner. 
2' Albin Ekdal ends that with a clever interception and a surge forward where he's brought down, illegally, by Lee Yong; who's now limping. Let me give you lot some free advice: Never get into a physical battle with a Viking. 
1' The Koreans are knocking it around at a fairly confident clip and the Swedes are barely getting a boot on the ball 

South Korea in their change strip of all white will be kicking off from right to left as you'd see it on the telly. Sweden in their glorious yellow and blue will be moving the other way. 
The anthems have been belted out by the Vikings of Sweden and the Taeguk Warriors of Korea, hands have been shaken, photos have been taken. Football is almost upon us. 
With Mexico having blown this group wide open after their smashing of Germany yesterday, the two teams have walked onto the field with a spring in their step. As if they needed any more encouragement than representing their nation on the grandest stage of them all. 
Lee Seung-woo, Barcelona product (he joined La Masia in 2011, aged 13) and hailed Asia's Messi after stunning the Catalans has had a weird career so far. No one called any place's Messi can live without some intense pressure and it's had an impact on his life in ways most of us wouldn't be able to comprehend. 

Still only 20, this could be the young man's breakthrough moment; and while he's starting out on the bench tonight, rest assured he'll get some gametime. Watch out for the lad wearing no.10 for the Korea Republic
The best story out of this World Cup yet:

Janne Andersson confessed he'd sent spies to the Korean training camp; the Koreans responded by swapping players' numbers around to confuse the Swedish "spy" because in the words of -  and this is where it gets really interesting - Shin Tae-yong, "it's very difficult for westerners to distinguish between Asians."

Sweden vs South Korea - Managers Speaketh

Janne Andersson has been speaking, and he's been speaking well:

 "We are looking forward to this match against a tough opponent. We know they have technical skills, are a very fast team and we need to keep good order in everything we do. We are very happy with our performance so far in preparation. Twenty five days ago we all met up and we have able to work through various things and have seen very few injuries.

"I have made up mind (with the team) and I hope we do not have any last-minute events before the game. It will be the team that will give us the best position for winning, but we are all well prepared. We have not been able to create as much in the last few games but we have had very good opponents. We have been working more on our attacking game over the last few days."

So has South Korea's Shin Tae-Young, whose Taeguk Warriors have been accused of losing their renowned connect with their fanatical fan base:

"We do not know each other that well, but we are really ready for the game tomorrow and we have to win. Some people are saying the (Korean) fans are showing us the cold shoulder but we are doing everything we can to win. The fans in Korea are sending us their support. 

And their leader on the field Ki Sung-yueng has a fair bit to say as well:

"I really want the players to enjoy the game and take advantage of this opportunity - it will be a very important experience in their lives. It is good that there will be a lot of people there, whether they are Swedish or Korean, it does not matter. The players have a lot of experience and it will be great if we have a full stadium. We have quite a lot of players who have experience of playing at a World Cup and that is a strength for us and all the players are fully prepared."

Sweden vs South Korea - Team News

Janne Andersson's bunch of Swedish warriors are all fit and ready to defend their goalmouth with their lives. Having qualified without Zlatan Ibrahimovic, they've decided to leave the enigma in Los Angeles for the big one as well. It's not gone down well with the press, but Andersson's furious that his team choices are being questioned - "This is incredible! This player has stopped to play with Sweden one year and a half ago and we are still here talking about him.  Gosh, we need to talk about the great players we have on this team I believe.”

The Swedes are expected to start Marcus Berg and Ola Toivonen where the Zlatan used to roam free before with Emil Fosberg and Seb Larsson pulling the strings in midfield.

Shin Tae-Yong has had to travel to Russia without Kwon Chang-Hoon, the Dijon playmaker having tweaked his achilles ahead of the tournament, but with Heung-Min Son in the form of his life, and Tae-Yong is expecting big things from his nation's most recognisable footballer - “Son still plays well for the national team, but when he plays for Tottenham, there are many good players and opposing defences are not only focusing on him. But when he plays for the national team, the opposition focuses on defending against Son Heung-Min. Sometimes he has struggled to overcome that but now I think he’s doing well.But to become a big player, he has to overcome that barrier.”

Son's supporting cast should include Kim Shin-Wook up top with Ki Sung-Yueng setting the tempo in midfield

Sweden vs South Korea - Probable Lineups

Sweden Predicted XI (4-4-2):
Robin Olsen; Mikael Lustig, Andreas Granqvist, Victor Lindelof, Ludwig Augustinsson; Viktor Claesson, Sebastian Larsson, Albin Ekdal, Emil Forsberg; Marcus Berg, Ola Toivonen.

South Korea Predicted XI (4-2-3-1): Kim Seung-Gyu; Lee Yong, Kim Young-Gwon, Jang Hyun-soo, Park Joo-ho; Ki Sung-Yeung, Jung Woo-young; Hwang Hee-chan, Lee Jae-sung, Son Heung-min; Kim Shin-Wook

Sweden vs South Korea - Form Guide

(all competitions - most recent first)

Sweden: DDLLDW

That one W? The one that mattered most, Sweden 1 - 0 Italy. They've been in rather terrible form since, barely mustering about draws against Denmark and Peru while falling to two teams that aren't here in Russia, Romania and Chile.

Most recent game: 09/06/18: Sweden 0 - 0 Peru

South Korea: LDLWLL

If you think the Swede's have gotten it wrong with their preparations, well, the South Koreans are here to surprise you. Having squeezed through qualifying on the back of two goalless draws to 10-men Iran and Uzbekistan, the Koreans have had a horrible round of friendlies, beating only Moldova, Honduras, and Latvia and losing to Northern Ireland, Senegal, Poland and Bosnia & Herzegovina.

Most recent game: 11/06/18: Senegal 2 - 0 South Korea

Sweden vs South Korea - Head to Head

Games Played:
Sweden Wins: 2
Sweden's biggest win over South Korea came in the 1948 Olympics when the Vikings hammered the Taeguk warriors 12-0 but their most recent encounter came in November 2005, a match that ended in a 2-2 draw.
South Korea Wins: 0
This is the first time the two teams are meeting on the grandest stage of them all.
Draws: That is but elementary [math], my dear Watson. Really, really, elementary

Sweden vs South Korea - Prediction

Mexico's shock win over a lackadaisical Germany has thrown the group wide open, and hopefully this will lead to both Sweden and South Korea going all out for the win - knowing that 3 points here boosts immeasurably their chances of qualification into the knockouts. 

Realistically, though, that's not how either team go about doing their business. 

Our Prediction? Sweden 1 - 1 South Korea
