The Swedish team beat South Korea with the score 1: 0. The only goal scored from the penalty Andreas Grankvist on 65 minutes of the match.
In order to appoint a penalty, Salvadoran referee Hoel Aguilar needed to use the VAR system - and this is the third penalty from the beginning of the world Cup, appointed with the help of new technologies.
The Swedish team fully deserved the victory - the Scandinavians looked much better than the Asian team, which did not cause a single blow to the goal of Robin Ulsen. The best chance to even the score was presented to the Koreans already in the compensated time when Hwang Hee Chan without interference hit his head in the left corner of the gate of the Swedes after the canopy, but the striker did not have enough accuracy - the ball did not hit the target.
Thus, group F was headed by Mexicans and Swedes, who played the Germans and Koreans to the minimum.
