Brazil were firm favourites heading into the World Cup 2022, with something of a golden generation coming together at just the right time. They looked comfortable in their group, brushing aside Serbia and Switzerland before a shock defeat to Cameroon.
South Korea made much more work of their exit. An opening day stalemate with Uruguay was followed by a 3-2 defeat against Ghana. With Uruguay beating the African nation in their final game, the Koreans had to pull off a victory against group winners, Portugal, to have any hope of knockout football. That's just what they got, thanks to a stoppage time winner from Wolves forward, Hwang Hee-Chan.
South Korea will undoubtedly have their work cut out against an in-form Brazil side with stacks of talent – when Manchester City's number one is your second choice goalkeeper, you know you've got depth! I can't see South Korea getting the better of this Brazil team, though. Despite the volume of upsets we've already seen at this World Cup, my money is on Brazil progressing to face the winner of Japan v Croatia.
