FIFA World Cup 2018, Sweden vs South Korea Highlights: 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.

Sweden coach Janne Andersson apologized to World Cup opponent South Korea on Sunday in an attempt to defuse a squabble between the teams over spying. Andersson's apology related to an incident at South Korea's pre-World Cup training camp in Austria, where a member of the Swedish coaching staff got into a closed Korean training session and was told to leave. ``He heard about a practice session.'' Andersson said. ``He didn't understand it was a closed session. He was asked to leave and he watched from more of a distance as a result.''
