Reviewed penalty gets Sweden by S. Korea

Sweden and South Korea meet on Monday

But the claim by his Korean opposite number added an extra layer of intrigue to the Group F clash.

This time he was obsessed not with appearance, but with the height of the Swedish players.

In World Cup warm-up matches, he switched the numbers of his players around, arguing Swedish scouts would be confused because he says "it's very hard for westerners to distinguish between Asians".

The plan may have backfired on the Koreans though as they lost to Senegal 2-0, and drew with Bolivia 0-0 in their final warm-up games for Russian Federation.

"We evaluated all of our goalkeepers and we felt like with the very tall Swedish players, we thought Jo Hyeon-woo would be the best and we thought he'd be a little bit quicker", Shin said.

There have been counter-claims that the Koreans also spied on the Swedes in the run-up to Russian Federation.

Jacobsson had apparently rented a house in the town of Leogang, near Salzburg to "spy" on Sweden's first opponents.

Asked to elaborate, he said: "We swapped them around because we didn't want to show our opponents anything". He added: "It's been made a mountain out of a molehill".

Andersson said his team needed to learn from Mexico's success against Germany and be bold and attacking. I was pretty sure, ' Granqvist said of the wait.

"We need to dare to do even more", the coach said. "We are looking forward to the match. we have had excellent preparations".

Sweden next face world champions Germany, where they can ill afford to miss chances like they did on Monday.

Meanwhile, South Korea are appearing at a 10h World Cup, having failed to progress from the group stage in Brazil, following a draw to Russian Federation and defeats to Algeria and Belgium.

Sweden and South Korea have faced each other only thrice in global matches.

Sweden's Andreas Granqvist, third right, celebrates with teammates after the group F match between Sweden and South Korea at the 2018 soccer World Cup in the Nizhny Novgorod stadium in Nizhny Novgorod, Russia, Monday, June 18, 2018.

The parties for the 5 a.m. game will be at the grass lawn outside Wilshire Park Place at 3700 Wilshire Blvd. and the Glory Church of Jesus Christ at 1801 S. Grand Ave. near downtown Los Angeles.
