Russia vs South Korea by Topspin77
On Arena Pantanal (Cuiabá, Mato Grosso), Russia is looking to make their debut with a win. After putting in charge Fabio Capello, Russia has become one of the toughest sides to be defeated. They have lost with Portugal and Northern Ireland and those were the only defeats in 20 matches. They have won the group in front of Portugal and are coming here to battle as favorites with Belgium for win a group with South Korea and Algeria.
South Korea are clearly inferior to what they had in 2002 when they have played home in the World Cup. Losing 0-4 with Ghana, losing with USA and Tunisa, losing with Mexico, all 4 without scoring is telling me so much about their actual quality even though those were friendlies!
Russia will need a win and I think they will get it. I do not think South Korea will score tonight either!
Rusia will be: Akinfeev; Eschenko, Ignashevich, Berezutski, Kombarov; Samedov, Denisov, Faizulin, Zhirkov; Dzagoev; Kokorin
South Korea will be: Sung-Ryong; Yong, Jeong-Ho, Young-Gwon, Sook-Young; Kook-Young, Sung-Yong, Ja-Cheol, Chung-Yong; Heung-Min; Chu-Young
