BBC reports that Russia will be without inspirational captain Roman Shirokov, who suffered a tournament-ending knee injury shortly before the finals.

Veteran Aleksandr Kerzhakov is expected to lead the line, with highly-rated Alexander Kokorin playing behind him.

South Korea centre-back Hong Jeong-Ho looks set to be recalled after Hong Myung-Bo’s men conceded four goals to Ghana in their final friendly.

Arsenal’s bit-part striker Park Chuyong is likely to start up front.
