The 2022 FIFA World Cup will see South Korea clash with Brazil in an important round-of-16 clash at Stadium 974 on Monday. South Korea ended second in Group H of the World Cup and made it to this knockout stage courtesy a dramatic 2-1 win over Portugal.
Brazil topped their group, but then were handed a shocking 1-0 defeat by Cameroon last week. This makes this match a cracking watch as both sides need to be at their absolute best.
