Swedish penalty sinks S. Korea
    2018-06-20  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

ANDREAS GRANQVIST took advantage of a VAR-awarded penalty to hand Sweden a 1-0 win over South Korea in their World Cup opener Monday.

The Sweden captain tucked home in the 65th minute of the Group F clash in Nizhny Novgorod after technology was used to rule that Viktor Claesson had been fouled in the area.

It was a deserved victory for Sweden, which created the better chances throughout and Marcus Berg spurned a couple of good openings. The Swedes had been accused of spying on a South Korea training session in the buildup to the game but they began with an apparent determination to put their own shortcomings in front of goal right.

Sweden had not scored in three outings prior to the tournament but they showed the greater attacking intent in the first half.

Granqvist, without defensive colleague Victor Lindelof of Manchester United due to illness, had an early opportunity after breaking from deep. He combined well with Berg, who returned his pass with a neat backheel, but Kim Young-gwon produced a fine tackle to frustrate him.
