Catch the Group H match Live as Russia take on South Korea. (Scroll down for live updates from the match)
A stuttering qualifying campaign may have dented South Korean confidence ahead into their opening Group H match against Fabio Capello's Russia on Tuesday, but they've got a wealth of World Cup experience.
At first glance, it appears the Koreans and Russians will be in a race for second spot in the group behind a young and vibrant Belgium team whose golden generation has bloomed just in time for Brazil. Algeria is the other team in the group.
South Korea lost 2-1 to Russia in a friendly at Dubai in November and is coming off a 4-0 hammering by Ghana in Miami, which highlighted the team's defensive problems as well as limitations in attack.
