South Korea and Sweden will open their World Cup campaign at Nizhny Novgorod Stadium in Nizhny Novgorod, some 425 kilometers east of Moscow. The match will start at 3 p.m. local time, or 9 p.m. Seoul time.
On the South Korean bench, which is only reserved for 23 people -- 12 players and 11 staff members -- assistant coach Jeon Kyeong-joon and his translator will use headsets.
For this World Cup, FIFA approved the use of electronic devices -- one for the analyst from the media tribune and another for the coaching staff on the bench -- to share match data during the match.
Cha, a son of South Korean football legend Cha Bum-kun, has been analyzing Janne Andersson's team, having watched Sweden's two recent friendly matches against Denmark and Peru. (Yonhap)
