Two Asian countries remaining in World Cup play tomorrow

South Korea and Japan, the two remaining Asian countries in the World Cup, play tomorrow, December 5. The two teams will play for a chance to advance to the quarter-finals of the 2022 World Cup.

South Korea earned their spot in the round of 16 after defeating Portugal 2-1 during their final group-stage match. Wolves forward Hwang Hee-chan scored the winning goal in the first minute of added time. Tottenham superstar Heung-min Son dribbled from his own half to provide the assist.

Tomorrow, South Korea will face Brazil, who are considered among the favorites to win the tournament.

Japan topped their World Cup group after defeating both European soccer powers Germany and Spain. Their two victories meant that the Germans, who won the World Cup in 2014, would not advance to the knockout rounds.

Japan will face Croatia tomorrow during their round of 16 match. In 2018, Croatia made it to the World Cup final where they were defeated by France. Ritsu Doan, who plays winger for SC Freiburg in the Bundesliga, has scored two goals already at this World Cup. He will look to exploit the Croatian backline and help Japan advance to the quarter-finals.
