South Korea to win the World Cup - 250/1

You can get big odds on a South Korea win

World Cup 2022

While 2002 was extraordinary, it would arguably be the mother of all upsets if South Korea were to clinch the World Cup. Currently, they are valued at a whopping 250/1 with bet365 to go all the way, which shows the scale of the challenge facing Bento and his charges.

Aside from the remarkable run at the 2002 World Cup, South Korea have rarely gone beyond the group stages. The last time they did so was in 2010 when they made the Round of 16, but they were on the wrong end of a 2-1 scoreline against Uruguay.

They could well be locked in an intense battle with Uruguay to emerge from Group H unscathed. However, they could have some joy if they can avoid an early exit.

A quarter-final appearance may not be so fanciful if they can ride out the storm. If this outright market is of interest, then bet365 is pricing South Korea at 10/1 to make the last eight which isn’t beyond the realm of possibility.

Or if you fancy a cheeky punt in other sections, such as the Golden Boot winner, then Son is currying rather long odds of 100/1 with bet365 to walk away with the accolade.

South Korea World Cup Group

Group H has the potential to throw up some surprises, but there are some mouth-watering clashes to look forward to. We have provided a full list of South Korea’s group games and all kick-offs are stated in UK times:

South Korea 2022 World Cup Squad

The South Korea squad for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar has been confirmed, and here it is.

  • Goalkeepers: Kim Seung-gyu (Al Shabab), Jo Hyeon-woo (Ulsan Hyundai), Song Bum-keun (Jeonbuk Motors)
  • Defenders: Kim Min-jae (Napoli), Kim Jin-su (Jeonbuk Motors), Hong Chul (Daegu FC), Kim Moon-hwan (Jeonbuk Motors), Yoon Jong-gyu (FC Seoul), Kim Young-gwon (Ulsan Hyundai), Kim Tae-hwan (Ulsan Hyundai), Kwon Kyung-won (Gamba Osaka), Cho Yu-min (Daejon Citizen)
  • Midfielders: Jung Woo-young (Al Sadd), Na Sang-ho (FC Seoul), Paik Seung-ho (Jeonbuk Motors), Son Jun-ho (Shandong Taishan), Song Min-kyu (Jeonbuk Motors), Kwon Chang-hoon (Gimcheon Sangmu), Lee Jae-sung (Mainz), Hwang Hee-chan (Wolverhampton Wanderers), Hwang In-beom (Olympiacos), Jeong Woo-yeong (Freiburg), Lee Kang-in (Real Mallorca)
  • Forwards: Hwang Ui-jo (Olympiacos), Cho Gue-sung (Jeonbuk Motors), Son Heung-min (Tottenham Hotspur)

South Korea may not be flooded with loads of household names like their other Group H opponents. However, Son Heung-Min is idolised in South Korea and he is the undoubted star. Premier League fans will be well aware of his exploits with Tottenham last season and he played an instrumental role in helping his side secure a top-four spot. Direct and with pace to burn, Son will be a nightmare for defenders to deal with, and he is clinical in front of goal. He is the complete package and he is vital to South Korea’s chances of doing well at the World Cup.

Meanwhile, Hwang Hee-chan could also be a trump card for South Korea. Last season was a transitional one for the 26-year-old as he spent it on loan at Wolves before earning a permanent deal during the summer transfer window. Chan is versatile as he can play anywhere along the front line, but he usually likes to operate off the main striker. Chan can be a useful outlet and he will need to orchestrate things well if Son is going to get the service he craves.

Verdict: How Far Will South Korea Go at 2022 World Cup?

South Korea has the ingredients to be the surprise package once again, and Son will carry the burden on his shoulders. Uruguay will provide the biggest threat to South Korea qualifying from Group H, but if they can negotiate that hurdle, then things could open up for them.

At best, South Korea could reach the quarter-finals, and you can pick up a tasty price of 10/1 with bet365 for that to happen.
