South Korea will take part in their 10th successive World Cup tournament in Qatar. 

South Korea have struggled  in recent tournaments, winning just two of their last 10 games and failing to make it out of the group stages in both 2014 and 2018.

Their best tournament showing was when they hosted the tournament in 2002, reaching the semi-finals in dramatic fashion. They would first knock this seasons opponents Portugal out in the group stages before beating Italy after extra-time and then Spain on penalties in the quarter-finals. The semi-finals were one too step far however, with Michael Ballack’s 75th minute winner end their dreams of glory.

Can they replicate their famous 2002 run  or will it be another struggle to make it to the last 16?

South Korea to win 2022 World Cup odds

South Korea are currently priced at 250/1 to win the 2022 World Cup.

Having finished second in their qualifying group behind Iran, the Koreans will be hoping that they can qualify for the knockout stages in Qatar.

They will have to be at their very best though, having being put in arguably the toughest group.

South Korea’s potential path to 2022 World Cup final

South Korea were handed a tough draw in Qatar, being placed in Group H alongside Euro 2016 winners Portugal, Uruguay and Ghana.

They begin their campaign with two times winners Uruguay, before facing Ghana and then finishing with their toughest game in Portugal.

If South Korea win Group G

  • If South Korea were to win Group H, this would be their route through to the final.
  • Last 16: The runners-up of Group G, which consists of Brazil, Serbia, Switzerland and Cameroon, in Lusail on 6th December.
  • Quarter-finals: The winner of Match 55 , which is played between the winner of Group F (Belgium, Canada, Morocco or Croatia) and the Group E runners-up (Spain, Germany, Japan or one of New Zealand and Costa Rica).
  • Semi-finals: The winner of Match 59 which will include one of the Group B or Group D winners, or runners-up from Group C or A. Involved in these groups are the likes of England, France, Netherlands, Senegal, Argentina, Mexico and Denmark.

If South Korea qualify from Group G

  • If South Korea finish second in Group H, they will go to the other side of the bracket.
  • Last 16: The winners of Group G in Doha on 5th December.
  • Quarter-finals: The winner of Match 53, played between Group E winners and Group F runners-up.
  • Semi-finals: The winner of Match 57, which could include the Group A or C winners, or runners-up from Group D or B as listed above.

South Korea have qualified for each of the last 10 World Cup tournaments, but have only made it out of the group stages on two occasions (semi-finals in 2002 and the last 16 in 2010).

They are best price 12/1 to win Group H and 5/2 to make it third time lucky and reach the last 16.
