  7. First opening win since 1958

    Sweden 1-0 South Korea

    The Sweden players are enjoying their moment in the sun. Literally. The celebrations in front of their supports are in full swing at the moment. It's 60 years since they last won their opening game in the World Cup.

  8. 'Sweden deserved winners'

    Sweden 1-0 South Korea

    Stephen Warnock

    Ex-Liverpool defender on BBC Radio 5 Live

    Sweden looked the better team, created better chances. South Korea turned up in the last four minutes.

    I am disappointed in them, they've got game winners on the pitch. But I'm excited to see how Sweden do in the group with Germany and Mexico.

  10. 'He should score'

    Sweden 1-0 South Korea

    Stephen Warnock

    Ex-Liverpool defender on BBC Radio 5 Live

    It's a free header for Hwang, it looks so easy but he gets it completely wrong. He didn't have to break stride, under no challenge he should score.

  11. Post update

    Sweden 1-0 South Korea

    What. A. Miss.

    South Korea go direct and Lee Jae-sung flicks the ball into the path of Hwang Hee-chan but the RB Salzburg forward, who is unmarked, eight-yards out, heads agonisingly wide.

    Hwang Hee-chan
  12. Post update

    Sweden 1-0 South Korea

    Son Heung-min has to do better with that. He gets away down the left, and has time and space, but picks out the first man, a Swedish defender, with his cross. Unforgivable in the circumstances.

  13. Post update

    Sweden 1-0 South Korea

    South Korea have around three minutes plus added time to salvage something here.

    Son Heung-min
  14. SUBSTITUTION

    Sweden 1-0 South Korea

    Just worth mentioning that Hull City's evergreen Sebastian Larsson has trotted off the pitch to be replaced by Seattle Sounders midfielder Gustav Svensson.

  15. Granite Swedish boulder

    Sweden 1-0 South Korea

    South Korea have to go for it now and Lee Seung-woo unloads from 20-yards. But Andreas Granqvist's in the way.

    He's like a granite Swedish boulder back there at the moment, blocking and heading everything to safety.

  16. Post update

    Sweden 1-0 South Korea

    Almost a whiff of goal for South Korea from Son Heung-min's intelligent header but the Swedes quickly shuffle the ball to safety.

    Hwang Hee-chan was steadying himself to strike at goal there.

  17. SUBSTITUTION

    Sweden 1-0 South Korea

    Off goes Ola Toivonen as Isaac Thelin enters the fray for Sweden. Straight swap one forward for another.

    Isaac Kiese
  18. SUBSTITUTION

    Sweden 1-0 South Korea

    And one for the South Koreans. Lee Seung-Woo now on for Augsburg midfielder Koo Ja-Cheol.

  19. SUBSTITUTION

    Sweden 1-0 South Korea

    Change for the yellows. Genoa on for Hamburg as Oscar Hiljemark replaces Albin Ekdal.

  20. Worst effort of the tournament?

    Sweden 1-0 South Korea

    Sweden's Viktor Claesson has possibly just had one of the worst efforts of the World Cup.

    The ball sits up beautifully on the right side of the Suoth Korea box but his volley goes out for a throw-in about 12 yards up from the corner flag.

    What was that? Shocking is what it was!
