Latest Team News

Each of these two sides will be looking to get their best possible line-up on the field at the Moses Mabhida Stadium for this third and final Group B match. Nigeria have a number of stars who play across Europe and they will all need to be fit and form if they are to realise their potential of making it through to the knock-out stages of the tournament. Joseph Yobo and Yakubu of Everton are just two of the key men for the Africans and their coach will be hoping they have got through the first two games unscathed.

South Korea look to have a thinner squad so it is all the more important that they are able to avoid any unnecessary injuries or suspensions from their opening games against Argentina and Greece. They are two tough games that the Koreans ave faced and they will have done well to still be in with a chance of qualification by the time they face Nigeria.

Past Meetings and Result

Punters will be interested to know that there have been no recent meetings between the two sides so there are no trends to follow from that point of view. The result of this one will go a long way to deciding the fates of both teams in South Africa and with Argentina and Greece also playing it could be a nervous 90 minutes for all four sides. It is difficult to argue against the bookmakers assessment here that the Nigerians are favourites to take the three points but we feel that the South Koreans have a chance if they can get in amongst their opponents.

The final result will be important to fans and punters and will be made available for all to enjoy following the conclusion of this Group B match, all the major incidents will be noted including goal scorers.
