South Korea enter the semi-final with far more concerns than Brazil following an arduous 120 minutes against Team GB. Goalkeeper Jung Sung-Ryong took a heavy knock from Micah Richards, casting doubt over his availability. Also missing will be right-back Kim Chang-Soo who was forced off with a wrist injury in the first half against Great Britain.
For Mano Menezes, he will be able to welcome full-back Alex Sandro back from suspension whilst he will be hoping Tottenham midfielder Sandro is fit to start after his withdrawal just before half-time against Honduras.
