South Korea's qualification for Qatar 2022 has extended its run of successive FIFA World Cup appearances to 10 in a row, every edition since 1986 — a record for a country which has never lifted the trophy.
Five of its six wins in the tournament’s history so far have been against European sides, with one of them, Portugal, in its group this time. Its best performance in the World Cup remains its fourth-place finish in 2002 – the best performance by an Asian team in the tournament.
With Tottenham Hotspur’s Son Heung-Min in attack, the Taegeuk Warriors will look to repeat a similar performance twenty years apart.
