Sweden vs South Korea 1-0 Highlights 18 June 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia 2018

FIFA World Cup 2018, Sweden vs South Korea Highlights: Andreas Granqvist scored the solitary goal in the game from the penalty spot.

Making a return to the World Cup after 12 years, Sweden knocked on the door multiple times but each time were stopped by South Korean keeper H W Jo. But Sweden got the all important goal in the 65th minute when Claesson was brought down in the penalty box and VAR confirmed it was a penalty.

Skipper Andreas Granqvist stepped up to give Sweden the lead and that is how things remained until the end of the game. With that, Sweden won their first game at World Cup since 1958. Korea, despite decent chances, were unable to put Olsen to test. Sweden, thus, go level on three points with Mexico after first games in Group F.
