Starting XI: Russia v Korea Republic

Russia and South Korea will open their Group H account when they get their World Cup campaigns underway on Tuesday evening in Cuiaba.

The two teams come into the game in contrasting form with the the South Koreans arriving off the back of a 4-0 hammering at the hands of Ghana in the USA last week.

Meanwhile, the same cannot be said for Fabio Capello’s Russia who have not lost in 10 matches dating back to almost a year ago.

As always in the World Cup, it will be a must win for both teams should they hope to keep their aspirations of a knockout stage qualification alive.

Extra pressure will be added onto Russia and Korea as their match will follow Group H’s opener against Belgium and Algeria and they will be closely monitoring the outcome of the match in the build up to their game.

Pundits are tipping Russia to take the three points in this encounter after having shown vast improvement over the course of the years.

Russia Starting XI: Akinfeev, Ignashevich, Glushakov, Kokorin, Berezutskiy (c), Shatov, Zhirkov, Samedov, Fayzulin, Eshchenko, Kombarov

Korea Republic Starting XI: S R Jung, S Y Yun, Y G Kim, H M Son, C Y Park, Y Lee, J C Koo (c), K Y Han, S Y Ki, C Y Lee, J H Hong
