Sweden thanks to a penalty beat South Korea

  • South Korea World Cup

And, given how they created the better chances throughout the 90 minutes, few would argue that Sweden were not deserving winners against a lacklustre South Korean outfit. Referee Joel Aguilar let play go on despite furious Swedish protests until he got the order to review the play.

The deadlock in this hard fought battle was finally broken after VAR was utilised to judge on an obvious penalty after Kim Min-Woo's clumsy challenge on Viktor Claesson in the box.

But from his vantage point, Shin thought otherwise.

"I'm still disappointed about my performance and feel very, very sorry for my teammates because if we don't score, it's my fault, because I need to take the responsibility", Son said.

Shin was frustrated to concede the penalty but accepted the right decision was eventually made. "I think our players should have responded better".

The same scout gained access to a closed training session before the match, but South Korea coach Shin Tae-yong was on to it, and he revealed he deliberately switched the jersey numbers of players to confuse the Swedish staffer. The most recent 45 minutes saw them play well enough in defence and the midfield but there simply wasn't enough quality in the final third. Sweden had the first real chance in the 17th minute, with centre-back Granqvist jumping in on the attack following a Marcus Berg setup, only to have Kim Young-gwon make a solid clearance.

"I$3 f what we did has been perceived in another way, then we apologize", said Andersson.

The crushing victory was England's third in the ODI series and means they have an unassailable lead with two games to spare. Eoin Morgan's men were in a similar position during the ODI series in Australia this winter, of course.

Shin said his players were unable to build on the early momentum because they were too anxious about the Swedes' physique and got away from their game. "I think it's perfectly natural that we all try to get as much information on each other as we can".

Son Heung-Min is a different level to everyone else on the pitch on both teams, its completely evident.

Andersson, whose side beat Italy in a play-off to qualify, insists this was a simple misunderstanding as they had thought the session was open to the public.

Players have been seen wearing different numbers during preparations for the finals in Russian Federation and Shin says it was a deliberate ploy to confuse any Sweden scouts ahead of the match.

Andersson said his team needed to learn from Mexico's success against Germany and be bold and attacking.
