Meanwhile, Sweden's captain Andreas Granqvist revealed the teams have been helped by sports counsellors in the run-up to the tournament.

When pressed about the call again during his post-match press conference, Shin said, "I accept the decision". I think we just defended well and we feel if we counter better we can score goals. The ref had initially waved play on.

"I thought Kim Min-woo touched the ball first and then took (Claesson) down", Shin told a televised interview after the match.

However, after a VAR review of the foul on Claesson from Kim, the referee eventually gave the penalty and there was delight from the men in yellow. France and Peru also benefitted from the technology, though the Peruvians missed their penalty kick. "I think we should reorganize to have a better team atmosphere".

What time does FIFA World Cup 2018 Sweden v/s South Korea match start (time in IST)?

After Germany and Mexico provided a barn-storming game yesterday, in which the reigning World Champions registered a shocking opening loss to El Tricolor, this other game in Group F has somewhat gone under the radar, but could produce thrills to equal.

South Korea players greet the fans following their defeat at the Nizhny Novgorod Stadium.

Why Germany will beat Mexico
Kimmich nearly netted with an over-head kick from 12 yards before Julian Draxler saw a deflected effort go wide of the far post. They have been battering teams in World Cup openers for as long as any of the players on this pitch could remember.

The match at Nizhny Novgorod Stadium saw Sweden missing a clear chance in the 20th minute as they controlled the pace throughout the first half.

Jo was surprisingly made a starter by coach Shin Tae-yong, who also gambled on a three-man attack of Son Heung-min, Hwang Hee-chan and 6-foot-6 striker Kim Shin-wook.

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 put a header wide from in front of goal.

Asked to name South Korea's most important player, Sweden coach Janne Andersson didn't hesitate.

Next up for the Swedes is an intriguing encounter against Germany in Sochi on June 23.South Korea started the game brightly, forcing the first corner in the fourth minute, but were gradually forced back by an attritional Swedish side.

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.

South Korea's manager Shin Tae-yong said his players switched shirts to cause confusion because, in his words, "they might know a few of our players but it is very hard for Westerners to distinguish between Asians". I don't know how many Swedish players have played in the World Cup but we have quite a few players who have had that experience.
