One of the big longshots to win the 2018 World Cup is South Korea, who is making their tenth World Cup appearance. You might be surprised to learn that the Korea Republic is the only team outside of Europe and South America to play in every World Cup since 1986. Korea is the most successful Asia club in World Cup history, as they made the semifinals at home in 2002. Just getting out of the group stage would be a huge accomplishment for South Korea in the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

Players to Watch

South Korea has a few players to watch that play in the German Bundesliga. Those players are Koo Jaechelo, Son Heungmin and Ki Sungyueng.

The Coach

Shin Taeyong has not been on the job long, as he took over in July of 2017, replacing Uli Stielike. Taeyong is a former midfielder for the Taeguk Warriors. He coached Korea at the FIFA U-20 World Cup and he coached at Seongnam Ilhwa Chunma in 2010 and won the AFC Champions League.

South Korea World Cup History

Korea has made nine previous World Cup appearances, with their best finish a semifinal berth in 2002. South Korea first made the World Cup in 1954 and then went 32 years without an appearance. They had never won a match until 2002 when they went on a great run to make the semifinals. South Korea under Guus Hiddink defeated Poland, Portugal, Italy and Spain to make the last four in 2002. The team had success in 2010 when they made it past the group stage. South Korea went out in the group stage in 2014 even though they played Russia to a draw. Korea has played 31 previous World Cup matches and scored 31goals, for an average of one goal per game.

South Korea 2018 World Cup Predictions

South Korea is no threat to win the World Cup and realistically they are not much of a threat to get out of the group stage. The team simply doesn’t score many goals. They barely averaged one goal per game in qualifying against marginal opposition. They will face much tougher task in Russia, as there will be no pushovers. South Korea has done really well to qualify for the World Cup for the 10th time but they simply don’t have the offensive firepower to do any serious damage. The best Korea can hope for is to possibly play to a scoreless or 1-1 draw against one of the other teams, but that won’t be enough to get them into the knockout round.
