South Korea

South Korea have the most impressive record of any Asian team at the World Cup, having reached the semifinals back in 2002 and the Round of 16 in 2010. Progress past the group stages is once again on the cards for the Koreans thanks to a forgiving draw that has pitched them against Russia, Belgium and Algeria in Group H.

The focus in training under Hong Myung-Bo has been defence, with an emphasis on developing a team capable of grinding out close wins in the tough World Cup group stages. This approach could also come in handy in the knockout rounds, which makes South Korea an excellent option to defy their critics and reach the Round of 16 at a price of 9/1 at Bet365.
