Our review today will be brief, as we’ll have full length articles on both Sweden and England elsewhere on the site. As the whole of the core Twelve team supports one of those nations, you can rest assured they will be well covered here.
Sweden got the day underway with a 1-0 win over Korea Republic. Our main review of the match is here and it focusses on the victors, so we’ll take a quick look at the Asian side. They were fairly disappointing, and it’s never a great sign when your goalkeeper is one of your top performers. Cho Hyun-Woo made multiple key defensive actions, and none more so than a saving Marcus Berg’s clear-cut chance.
