KXIP vs KKR Live Score

Jo did his job in goal, making a half-dozen sprawling saves until he was beaten on a second-half penalty by Sweden captain Andreas Granqvist.

That was the case Monday morning when Sweden defeated South Korea 1-0 in their 2018 FIFA World Cup Group F opener. "We got the penalty and then we were just fighting until the end".

Sweden were awarded the penalty after a video review of defender Kim Min-woo's tackle on Viktor Claesson. France and Peru also benefitted from the technology, though the Peruvians missed their penalty kick. We are a team with fight.

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.

Shin's men will next face Mexico, who beat defending champions Germany 1-0 on Sunday and will hope for a better result if they are to improve on their showing from four years ago when they finished bottom of their group with a solitary point.

Morocco own goal hands late victory to Iran
It is now on a run of 18 games unbeaten, including games against World Cup teams Serbia, Nigeria, South Korea and Egypt. First, they were picked in possibly the toughest group at the World Cup. "For us and Morocco , it is a must-win game".

A member of the Swedish coaching staff admitted that it spied on its first-round opponent South Korea one day before their scheduled clash at Nizhny Novgorod Stadium on Monday.

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.

Korea pushed for an equalizer but failed to score, with Hwang Hee-chan wasting a good chance late on as he headed wide from close range.

It was the third VAR penalty awarded at these championships after France and Peru also benefitted from video referrals.The win was reward for Sweden's more attacking approach, but it was unsurprising the victor came from the penalty spot in a game between the two sides who had only managed two goals between them in seven games heading into Russian Federation.

They will take on Germany in their second match on Saturday evening in Sochi.

Captain Kane comes good to heighten England's aura of optimism
If they didn't think it's a penalty, we have to deal with that. "Hopefully I am OK", he said after the game. I tried to run at a few corners and just couldn't move.

Sweden: Granqvist was inspirational for Sweden, but the team still showed a lack of skill up front and that needs to be addressed before the match against Germany.

Anticipating Swedish espionage, South Korean coach Shin Tae-Yong ordered his players to alternate shirts and rely on moderate Western racism to escape observation and avoid tactical reveals ahead of this match at the Nizhny Novgorod Stadium at 1pm (BST) today.

He needn't have anxious too much about apologizing as South Korea's Shin recognized that at the World Cup, every team will try and get an edge.

Asked if it is harder to deal with that responsibility while playing for South Korea than it is with Tottenham, he said the situations are not the same. 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.
