South Korea represent Asia in the World Cup finals for the fifth time.

This is their fourth successive appearance, and they can often prove troublesome to the favourites as they battle on valiantly.

They were drawing 2-2 with Germany in US 94, before the Germans made the fifth goal theirs. South Korea also drew 2-2 with Spain, and 0-0 with Bolivia.

Match Reports.

Group Tables.


The co-host of the next World Cup, in 2002, managed to earn a draw against Belgium in their last game; although they were already out of the tournament and had sacked their coach after the second defeat.

Sang Chul YOO's 71st minute equalizer sent a siren through the Bay of Mexico. The Mexicans, who were losing 0-2 to the Dutch at the time, clawed back to earn themselves a draw and qualification ahead of Belgium.
