Cape Town - South Korea head coach Shin Tae-yong revealed he used an unusual tactic to gain an advantage over their Group G opponents Sweden ahead of a crucial World Cup clash.

Sweden's midfielder Sebastian Larsson greets the fans following their victory during the Russian Federation 2018 World Cup Group F football match between Sweden and South Korea at the Nizhny Novgorod Stadium in Nizhny Novgorod on 18 June 2018.

It promised to be a tight, cagey affair between two low-scoring sides, and that's exactly how it panned out as a second half penalty proved to be the only difference between the two sides.

The Swedish team will be sporting yellow shirts and blue shorts for the match. We are going to prepare in the best way possible and then we'll see.

South Korea has revealed that it swapped shirts of players to confuse the opponents during pre-world cup friendly matches.

Veteran Swedish skipper Andreas Granqvist scored the only goal of the game from the spot after Viktor Claesson was upended by South Korean substitute Kim Min-woo Kim in the 62nd minute.

"Pressure-wise for me, I think it's a lot less, but now I'm captain and I feel a stronger sense of responsibility".

"It's the World Cup, it's supposed to be like this, it's great that we've got there".

Andersson says his team analyzes all opponents and the incident has been overblown, but adds "it's very important that we show respect for opponents ..."

"I think we have to follow what the referee decides", he said.

Sweden ended up beating South Korea in their match on Monday, 1-0. We also had a few set-piece opportunities. However, two star players in the match, Son Huang-Piser of Korea and Emil Forsberg of Sweden, disappointed the team and could not play according to their ability.

- South Korea have won only one of their last nine World Cup games (D3 L5) - it was in their opening match of the 2010 edition against Greece (2-0). The astonishing claim came just 24 hours before his side open their World Cup campaign against Sweden...

If the Swedes were thirsty before kick-off, then they were only going to be even more in the mood for a party following their flawless start to the World Cup.
