The Korean team didn’t have a single player in the team with the experience of playing more than 10 international games and moreover, their coach Shin Tae-yong is also not very much experienced especially for the World Cup.

The performance from South Korea in their attacking half was very poor, way worse than the expectations of the fans during Sweden Vs South Korea tie.

Son was nowhere near the impressive player he had been in the Premier league, not even half and didn’t pose a real threat in front of the Swedish goal. Thus, Son Heung-min didn’t put forward a performance worth the biggest stage in football.

The match involved a lot of attacking football from Sweden with Berg and Toivonen leading the way since the starting whistle.
