Share

Sweden's Andreas Granqvist (L) celebrates with team-mates after scoring his team's winning goal against South Korea during their 2018 World Cup match at the Nizhny Novgorod Stadium in Novgorod, Russia on Monday.

Granqvist said: "I think this has been blown out of proportion". Referee Joel Aguilar let play go on despite furious Swedish protests until he got the order to review the play.

South Korea's Kim Min-woo brings down Viktor Claesson in the penalty area. But he changed his mind after taking another look, deciding Kim had tripped Claesson as he tried to clear the ball in a sliding tackle.

It was the third VAR penalty awarded at these championships after France and Peru also benefited from video referrals.

"We wanted to confuse the Swedish team".

The most recent Tory amendment, however, does not include this. Speaking to the Guardian he said: "It is unacceptable". Grieve's original amendment up for debate.

South Korea undoubtedly was one of the most physical games you'll see at the 2018 World Cup, with the teams committing 43 fouls combined.

South Korea will now prepare for its next game on Saturday against Group F rival Mexico, who beat defending champions Germany 1-0 on Sunday.

Despite their increasing dominance, Sweden also demonstrated why they have struggled to score goals.Berg, again, and Claesson went close before the end of the half, but it was clear for everyone to see why they had only scored once in their four matches prior to Russian Federation.

South Korea, which has won only two World Cup matches since its incredible run to the semifinals in 2002, had a chance to level in injury time but Hwang Hee-chan put a header wide from in front of goal.

His performance was so impressive it even led Sweden's head coach Janne Andersson to call him "South Korea's best player today".

Sweden defeated South Korea 1-0, thanks to Andreas Granqvist's spot kick in the 65th minute.

South Korea must pick itself up to face a Mexico team high on confidence after its spectacular win over Germany.

Against stronger opposition in Mexico and Germany, Sweden will need to produce and Ibrahimovic coming off the bench if the side need it couldn't have done the team's chances any harm.

The South Koreans responded by swapping players' numbers around to confuse the Swedish "spy" because, in the words of coach Shin Tae-yong, "it's very hard for westerners to distinguish between Asians". "We have worked a little bit more on our attack now in the last few days and I hope that tomorrow it will work and we will score".

Both teams' star players provided their creative drive, Son Heung-min trying to drive Korea forward from the left flank but again failing to have the same impact on the worldwide stage as he does in the Premier League.
