Algeria will play against South Korea on 22 June in the group round of their fourth World Cup in Brazil. Korea Republic surprised the world of football as they finished runners up to Iran in qualification round but they struggled initially. Also their manager was changes in the mid of qualifying round. Algeria arrives here after 5 wins and 1 loss. Both the teams have been pitted along with Belgium and Russia in World Cup 2014 Group H which could be the most straightforward of groups for Brazil 2014. The Russians and Belgians are both strong sides in this group. So South Korea and Algeria will fight strongly against each other to get win in the match between them. This is the seventh consecutive appearance for Korea Republic at the FIFA World Cup. Its best performance came in 2002 when it reached the semi-finals. Although the side is lacking in quality, they always play well-organized football. It will be looking to get to the knockout stages in 2014 tournament. Algeria, the Fennec Foxes are the outsiders in Group H. Admittedly, the squad doesn’t have superstars but Vahid Halilodzic’s managerial role includes excellence in the squad. It is the top as the highest ranked African team. The team has lost only once in its previous 13 matches.

Players to watch:
For South Korea:
Ki Sung-Yeung of Sunderland, Cardiff City’s Kim Bo-Kyung and Bayer Leverkusen’s Son Heung-Min will be the players to watch from Hong Myung-Bo’s team. Son Heung Min is Korea’s main hope who is only a 21-year-old forward.
Madjird Bougherra is the captain of Algeria as well as a tough tacking Algerian defender. Winger Sofiane Feghouli is the new star for the 2014 World Cup.
Head to head:
This pair has not met before in international football field together. So there are lots of new experiences waiting for the football world.
No matches played between these pair.
For me the prediction is too big on Algeria. The defenders of South Korea are often too easily beaten in the air. This weakness would come as key to success for the Algerians.
