South KoreaSouth Korea

Coach: Shin Tae-yong

Out of all the Asian teams, South Korea is the most consistent. South Korea is also a consistent name in the World Cup since 1986. South Korea’s best finish was in 2002 where they faced Germany in the semi-finals. This time though, they barely clinged onto a spot in the 2018 FIFA World Cup after a draw against qualifying contenders Uzbekistan on the last day of the Asian group stages and Syria failing to overpower Iran.
