Sweden is a beautiful Scandinavian country with 10 million population and thousands of coastal islands, inland lakes, along with vast boreal forests and glaciated mountains.
Zlatan Ibrahimović 36-year-old was announced officially by Swedish Football Association that it would not take him to the World Cup 2018. Read more HERE. Zlatan linked to his new football team LA Galaxy in march 2018 (the same team which David Beckham played for) and this is a big challenge for the Swedish Superstar.
Therefore Sweden must find other options in attack to have a chance to qualify from this hard group.
One of the players that can compensate Ibra in attack is the 26-year-old winger Emil Forsberg. He has great speed and technique. He’s has 36 caps with the Swedish national team and he’s very creative in attack.
Another versatile player in attack is the former Man City John Guidetti that now plays as a striker for Spanish club Deportivo Alavés. He’s strong and good in the air and can make a powerful line up in attack with Emil Forsberg.

South Korea, an East Asian country with 51 million population situated on the southern half of the Korean Peninsula and shares one of the world’s most roughly militarized borders with North Korea.

He scored for Tottenham 47 goals in 139 matches as follows 21 in 2016-17 and 18 goals last season. He has great speed and can finish from the hardest of angles.
Another interesting player to watch is The 22-year-old Hwang Hee-chan. He played already 37 games for Red Bull Salzburg and 12 games for South Korea. He is small, fast, clever and can make the difference in any game.
