South Korea are making their tenth consecutive World Cup appearance in 2022. The 2002 semi-finalists secured qualification by finishing second in their third-round group, with seven wins from ten games. Paulo Bento’s side now face tough tests against Portugal, Uruguay and Ghana in Group H, with the betting suggesting that they are underdogs to progress to the next round.
Son Heung-min is, without a doubt, South Korea’s most important player. The Tottenham forward has scored over 30 goals for his country, including six during qualifying, and could be a contender in the Top Scorer Betting. But they have other sources of goals too. Bordeaux striker Hwang Ui-jo averages around one goal every three games at international level, while Wolves’ Hwang Hee-chan hit three strikes in qualifying.
