Son Heung-Min says South Korea's opening defeat is his fault

Berg Bonucci Parolo Italy Sweden

Shaka Hislop breaks down Sweden's hard-fought 1-0 win over South Korea decided by Andreas Granqvist's VAR-awarded penalty.

Andreas Granqvist scores a second-half penalty, awarded through the use of VAR, as Sweden grind out a 1-0 win against South Korea in Nizhny Novgorod.

Speaking at his press conference through a Federation Internationale de Football Association interpreter, Shin said: "I think we wanted to confuse the Swedish team". "We got the penalty, we scored, and then it was just a fight to the end". Referee Joel Aguilar let play go on despite furious Swedish protests until he got the order to review the play. But he took another look and decided Kim had tripped Claesson as he tried to clear the ball. The opportunities for us now going forward are so much better.

Their disappointing series of results at the World Cup continues: they have now gone six matches without a win, a run that dates back to their victory over Greece in 2010. Son, South Korea's attacking ace, usually started as one of the two forwards, but this time he likely play on the wings, as he has mainly done with Tottenham Hotspur in the English Premier League.

The 21-year-old Leiato was dismissed from the program in May after his second arrest in four months, according to ESPN. Police believe the person was a passenger in the man's vehicle , though the department continues to investigate.

Andersson says the 36-year-old is now firmly out of the picture when it comes to Sweden's plans and has not had any involvement at any stage of the build-up to Monday's match in Nizhny Novgorod.

Berg, again, and Claesson went close before the end of the half, but it was clear for everyone to see why they had only scored once in their four matches prior to Russian Federation.

However they should have equalised in the 90th minute but Hwang Hee-chan put a free header wide, spurning the Koreans' best chace of the game by far.

It wasn't a flowing performance from Sweden, but securing the win will come as a huge relief to coach Janne Andersson and his team.

The proof is in audio clips of his narration of the moment when Lozano placed a ideal kick to secure Mexico's early lead. Eighteen of its shots came in the second half, when it enjoyed a 2-to-1 advantage in time of possession.

Sweden will next face reigning champions Germany in Sochi on Saturday.

Against stronger opposition in Mexico and Germany, Sweden will need to produce and Ibrahimovic coming off the bench if the side need it couldn't have done the team's chances any harm.

South Korea's coach Shin Tae-yong said on Sunday he deliberately made his team wear different numbered shirts in recent friendlies to confuse World Cup opponents who can not tell his players apart.

South Korea's defense is comprised of right back Lee Yong, left back Park Joo-ho and center backs Jang Hyun-soo and Kim Young-gwon.

A further $51.5m was added outside the USA , although the film has only opened in around a quarter of territories. The previous record-holder, Finding Dory , made $135 million in its first three days in 2016.

With the clock ticking down, South Korea were now pushing forward, although there was nothing happening to give Olsen in the Swedish goal and concerns. I don't know how many Swedish players have played in the World Cup but we have quite a few players who have had that experience.
