Hong Myung-Bo's side need just a draw to qualify for the quarter-finals whilst the Panthers must win to stand any chance of reaching the knockout phase

South Korea coach Hong Myung-Bo has no injury or suspension concerns ahead of the game, and is likely to continue with a strike pairing of Arsenal's Chu-Young Park and Sunderland forward Dong-Won Ji.
Bo-Kyung Kim scored a fine goal in the Koreans' win over Switzerland and, after recently signing for Cardiff City, will be hoping for another strong performance on the flanks.
Auxerre defender Henri Ndong will sit out the final group game due to suspension after being sent off in the Panthers' 2-0 defeat to Mexico last time out.
Otherwise the African side have no problems and will name the strongest side possible as they search for an unlikely progression to the next phase.
