FIFA Ranking position

The South Korea national football team managed to qualify as the second-placed team in their group, but that is about the only positive thing that can be said about the final round of the qualifiers. The Taeguk Warriors won just four of the 10 matches. With South Korea set to feature at their 10th international competition in Russia, no Asian nation has featured more times at the international football tournament. The South Koreans are the final team in Group F alongside Germany, Mexico, and Sweden.
