Korea football coach feels numb ahead of 'must-win' match vs. Sweden

Then in the second half, VAR confirmed a penalty kick for Sweden after a challenge in the box, and the Swedish captain Andreas Granqvist converted the spot kick for the match's lone goal.

Shin has been saying that South Korea are "all-in" for the match against Sweden because failing to get a positive result in the first match would mean the team would have little hope of making the round of 16, considering next two opponents are thought to be stronger than Sweden.

South Korea were now struggling to stay on level terms and were forced to make a change on 27 minutes when Park Joo Ho was taken off and replaced by Kim Min Woo. Mexico stunned the defending champions Germany 1-0 on Sunday.

The Swedes created a string of chances, most falling to Marcus Berg, who had one close-range side-foot shot spectacularly saved by Cho off his knee in the 21st minute.

Following Brazil and Germany's underwhelming performances on Sunday, we have another three matches of football lined up for day five of the FIFA World Cup from Russian Federation.

Son Heung-Min said he was disappointed with his performance in South Korea's 1-0 loss to Sweden in the teams' World Cup opener on Monday in Nizhny Novgorod, Russia.

The Swedes, playing in their first World Cup since 2006, were awarded the penalty after Salvadoran referee Joel Aguilar consulted a video screen on the sideline.

The game followed a similar pattern in the second period, with neither side able to stamp their authority on the match, but Sweden would secure the win courtesy of a VAR-assisted penalty.

Melania Trump 'hates' to see families separated at US border
USA officials said on Friday that almost 2,000 children were separated from adults at the border between mid-April and the end of May.

Sweden pulled off a major scalp in reaching the World Cup, by knocking out Italy over two legs to book their place in Russian Federation.

Sweden started without Victor Lindelof after the Manchester United defender fell ill overnight, with his replacement Pontus Jansson and the rest of the defence scarcely tested by a tepid South Korean attack in the early stages.

Sweden are unbeaten in all five of their previous meetings with South Korea (W3 D2).

"We switched them around because we didn't want to show our opponents everything and to try and confuse them", Tae-yong told ESPN.

After South Korea went behind, Son was moved centrally, but it was too late.

Sweden apologized for the incident, but South Korea said it was "perfectly natural" for teams to gather information on one another.

South Korea's national soccer team players run during a training session at the Spartak Stadium in Lomonosov near St. Petersburg, Russia, June 13, 2018.
