Sweden secure what could prove to be a vital three points. Granqvist scored a penalty after the referee consulted VAR to pull play back for a foul inside the box.
The goal came at a time when the South Koreans were beginning to take control of the game, which turned the tide in favour of the Swedes.
South Korea dominated possession afterwards but lacked the cutting edge to really trouble Olsen in the Sweden goal. Sweden will face Germany in their next game, while South Korea face joint-group leaders Mexico.
90' + 3' A Sweden free kick inside their own box will eat up some more valuable seconds here. The South Korean players are claiming handball inside the box but the referee is having none of it.
90' + 1' CHANCE! A cross from the left is headed back across goal from the back post. Hwang is completely unmarked in the box, but he can only divert his header wide of the left post with the goal at his mercy.
