Russia take on South Korea on Tuesday 17th June, 2014, with kickoff at 23:00. This match is currently being shown LIVE on BBC1.

Russia and South Korea kick off rather later than most in Brazil, and these are two side are in fact going to kick off their first match when Brazil have already completed their second. Russia have a well-funded team full of players who operate at the top level of continental competition but maybe struggle to turn the talent they have into results, or at least have done up until this point.

Since 2002 South Korean football hasn’t quite reached those heights again for some mysterious reason, but the fans live in hope that their heroes can go one better and make the final.
