A crucial game for both sides if they are to progress at the expense of either Germany or Mexico – both of whom have been in the last 16 at all of the last six World Cups.

Defeat for either side almost certainly spells curtains, but so too does a draw so we should see both teams go for the win.

Sweden, who deservedly put out Italy in the UEFA qualification play-offs after beating the Netherlands to second place between France in their group, are not to be underestimated and should have too much for a Korea side who will rely heavily on Tottenham’s Son Heung-Min for inspiration.

The Swedes kept clean sheets in both legs against Italy and look a spot of value to win this match.

They’ve won 13 competitive games since the last World Cup and kept clean sheets in 10 of those, while South Korea scored only 11 goals in 10 games in the final stage of Asian qualification.
