WC FIFA 2018: Sweden wins against South Korea by VAR penalty

  • Berg Bonucci Parolo Italy Sweden

The Asians actually began the game far brighter, pressing and harrying for the first 15 minutes against an initially sluggish-looking Sweden.

But Kim was mostly ineffective and was lifted in the 66th minute. Son also has an added incentive for South Korea to succeed this year, but this will require exceeding all expectations across the board.

It was the third penalty to be awarded because of a video review at this year's World Cup. He will escape compulsory military service alongside his teammates if they make the podium this tournament.

Sweden next face world champions Germany, where they can ill afford to miss chances like they did on Monday. Coach Shin Tae-yong was busy trying to nail down a formation that will produce the results.

The pace of the game was stilted, with Aguilar calling the two sides for a combined 38 fouls.

"Mexico deserved to win and we made it too easy for them, even though we knew exactly how not to play against them".

South Korea were now really under pressure as they soaked up a constant wave of Swedish attacks and their rare forays forward amounted to nothing.

South Korea were limited in their scoring chances as they remain winless in their last five World Cup games dating to 2010, and Son, the Tottenham forward, said that burden falls on him.

Defender Andreas Granqvist calmly slotted the ball in, as his team managed to hold on for the rest of the match and secure a vital three points. Subs: Woo-Lee 5, Woo-Young Jung 5, Min-Woo Kim 5.

Sweden go into their game against Germany with confidence.

In a bright start to the second half, both sides exchanged chances within the first six minutes.

There has been plenty of debate surrounding the Video Assistant Referee in the early stages of the World Cup.

VAR came to Sweden's rescue in the win against Korea. Play was allowed to carry on but when the ball reached a "neutral zone", the referee paused play and went for a second look.

Lars Jacobsson, a member of the Swedish coaching staff, said: "It took a long vehicle journey up the mountains to reach the house, but it was a flawless spot to observe the Korean team's training". But it's football and the decision was a penalty, of course it's disappointing. "They will be a real threat due to their height". Just ask Italy how good they are at that.

They should have equalised in the dying seconds but Hwang Hee-chan put a free header wide, spurning the Koreans' best chance.

Centre-back Hummels said Germany had ignored the warnings from their shaky 2-1 win over Saudi Arabia in their final warm-up game.

South Korea players greet the fans following their defeat at the Nizhny Novgorod Stadium. Sweden had eight attempts, with two on target. On the evidence of what he would have seen on Monday, he will be quietly confident.
