FIFA World Cup 2018: Sweden 1-0 South Korea

FIFA World Cup 2018: Sweden 1-0 South Korea

Another video review led to a penalty at the 2018 World Cup, this time helping Sweden beat South Korea 1-0 in Nizhny Novgorod today.

Sweden captain Andreas Granqvist converted from the spot, sliding his shot into the bottom right corner in the 65th minute.

Referee Joel Aguilar used the replay technology to decide whether South Korea substitute Kim Min-woo had fouled Viktor Claesson in the area after initially waving play on. Kim had tripped Claesson, though, and the converted penalty was enough to give Sweden its first World Cup victory since 2006, FOX sports reported.

Sweden will next play Germany, which lost to Mexico 1-0 in the other Group F match, on Saturday. The South Koreans face Mexico that same day.
