South Korea and Sweden face off in the twelfth game of the FIFA World Cup 2018 in Russia. They will play their match in Group F, which also comprises of Germany and Mexico.
South Korea is making their eleventh appearance in this tournament. Their best ever finish came when the team hosted the competition and came fourth in 2002. Apart from that the team hasn’t done anything significant and has always been eliminated from the early stages. With a young of talented players, coach Shin Tae-yong would want to change the fortune of his country.
They have talented attacking players in Son Heung-min and Moon Seon-min. Both of them are in the prime of their lives, and this will benefit the country. Coach Tae-yong loved the 4-4-2 system, and this will help him put an extra player in the midfield. Captain Ki Sung-yueng has adapted himself well in the Premier League and would use that experience with the national team when the going gets tough.
Sweden, on the other hand, will be without their start-striker, Zlatan Ibrahimovic. He took retirement from international competitions, and his void is expected to be filled by Marcus Berg. It’s unfair for the Berg to judged in this fashion but that is how the game goes.
Emil Forsberg and Sebastian Larsson are integral players for coach Janne Andersson. He has a decent defensive unit with likes of Manchester United Victor Lindelof and captain Andreas Granqvist.
However, if the pair will work in tandem with the midfield or be disjointed is a question that can only be answered after seeing them play.

*Since this is the twelfth game of the FIFA World Cup 2018 in South Korea and for the teams as well, the lineups can have some subtle changes. The predictions will get more accurate as the tournament progresses.
Players to look out for-
The 26-year old broke through as a star for Sweden when he performed exceptionally well for his club RB Leipzig. His form has dipped since then, but he is still one of the most skilful players the country has.
The Tottenham Hotspur striker had scored seven goals for his country in the qualification for the FIFA World Cup 2018 in Russia. He also chipped in whenever required by his club. He has the freedom in South Korea to express himself and be a threat to the opposition defence.

South Korea: 38/11
KOR vs SWE Dream 11 Team Predictions-
Son Heung-min, Emil Forsbeg ,Sebastian Larsson and Victor Lindelof and integral players for their team. They will be in the bulk of the action that will take place, hence they are in both the temas. It is expected that Hwang Hee-chan might also start so we have taken him in the second team just to be safe. Marcus Berg will lead Sweden’s attack and is in both teams as well.
