Mark Chapman introduces live coverage as Russia play South Korea in their Group H opening match from Cuiaba. The two countries met in a friendly as recently as November 2013, their only previous meeting, with Fabio Capello's Russia emerging 2-1 winners.
South Korea's coach Hong Meung-Bo was captain of the side that finished fourth at the 2002 World Cup. He has several British-based talents to call upon, including Ki Seung-Yeung, Lee Chung-Yong and Kim Bo-Kyung. Russia's hopes rest with young Dynamo Moscow starlet Alexander Kokorin and Euro 2012 hero Alan Dzagoev.
