Group G


south korea

World Cup participations: 6
Greatest World Cup achievement: semi-final (2002)

After the huge success at the world cup in their own country four years ago it could only go downwards with South Korea and the qualification for Germany was already quite mixed. But still they got through as second behind Saudi Arabia.

After coaching legend Guus Hiddink left, Korea hired another experienced Dutchman - Dick Advocaat. The current star in his team is Man United's Ji-Sung Park. Further strong players are Young-Pyo Lee of Tottenham, teenie-shoal Jung Hwan Ahn of Metz, Ki-Hyeun Seol of Wolverhampton Wanderers and Du-Ri Cha of Eintracht Frankfurt.

In total a very young team with potential that plays well forward. But after the world cup 2002 experienced defenders around Myong-Bo Hong retired since that the defence is a bit insecure.

The chances at the world cup are difficult to estimate - ranging from the 2nd place behind France to dropping out without a point everything seems possible.

The odds on South Korea as world cup winner were certainly very high
- 151.0 at Betandwin.
For a bet on group winner South Korea you get 10.0.
