World Cup: 6 biggest South Korea defeats as Brazil deal Tottenham star 4

Brazil dealt South Korea the fourth-biggest defeat in theirWorld Cuphistory with a 4-1 win at Qatar 2022. So, what are the Taegeuk Warriors worst results on the FIFA stage to date?

Tottenham Hotspur forwardSon Heung-Minwas powerless to prevent the Selecao beating his team comprehensively in the Round of 16. His East Asian country was no match for the South Americans, who ran riot against haphazard defending and questionable tactical calls.

South Korea sought to go man-for-man against Brazil, one of the favourites to win the title at Qatar 2022. Yet it left their defenders ill-equipped for the task at hand as Tites side put four goals beyond Kim Seung-Gyu. But in reality, the Selecao should have score a lot more.

Brazil played on more than just a level above South Korea in the first half at Stadium 974 in Doha. The Selecao attacked at ease throughout the opening period and took the lead after just seven minutes through Vinicius Jr. Richarlison then won a penalty four minutes later.

Neymar calmly converted from the spot before Richarlison added the best goal of the tie on 29 minutes. The forward rolled the ball past Kim for Brazils third goal after a great bit of play between Marquinhos and Thiago Silva. Lucas Paqueta then got in on the act and hit on 36.

Paik Seung-Ho pulled a goal back for South Korea in the 76th minute with a thunderous hit from 30 yards. Alisson Becker had no chance of stopping the Jeonbuk Hyundai midfielders shot. But the Liverpool goalkeeper had already made two great saves earlier in the match.

Brazil also took their foot off the gas at the break with a win never appearing likely to be in doubt. They will now meet Croatia on Friday, December 9 while the Taegeuk Warriors are out in the last 16. Brazil have now reached the quarter-finals at the past eight World Cups.

Nonetheless, losing 4-1 to Brazil on a night when the scoreline could have been far greater still saw South Korea register one of their biggest World Cup defeats so far. So, with that in mind, HITC Football takes a look at the Taegeuk Warriors worst results on the FIFA stage

Hungary dealt South Korea their biggest defeat at a World Cup so far in 1954. The Magyars were a global force at FIFAs quadrennial tournament over the early editions after finishing second in 1938 and 1954. They took on the Taegeuk Warriors in Group 2 of the first round.

South Korea also met Hungary in their first game as the East Asian nation made their debut World Cup appearance. But it would be a debut to forget and more as the Magyars scored nine goals without reply. It is one of three World Cup fixtures ever with a nine-goal margin.

Hungary were also the first team to win a World Cup fixture by nine goals as they ravished South Korea. Iconic forward Ferenc Puskas scored two (12, 89) alongside goals by Mihaly Lantos (18), Sandor Kocsis (24, 36, 50), Zoltan Czibor (59) and Peter Palotas (75, 83).

Turkey ensured Switzerland 1954 saw South Korea suffer another of their biggest defeats at the World Cup to date. The Crescent-Stars faced the Taegeuk Warriors fresh off of their 9-0 mauling at the hands of Hungary and dealt the East Asian nation a 7-0 defeat in Geneva.

Just three days separated South Korea conceding 16 goals and returning home bottom of Group 2. Suat Mamat also only needed 10 minutes to break the deadlock at the Stade des Charmilles. Lefter Kucukandonyadis then added a second goal on 24 with a long-range hit.

Mamat (30), Burhan Sargin (37, 64, 70) and Erol Keskin (76) continued to torment the Taegeuk Warriors. The result forced a play-off between Turkey and West Germany having both taken two points. But Die Mannschaft who did not face South Korea won it 7-2.

The Netherlands triumphed in style when they met South Korea at France 1998

The Netherlands triumphed in style when Oranje met South Korea at France 1998 during their second game in Group E. Belgium had held the Dutch to a goalless draw in their first fixture while Mexico edged the Taegeuk Warriors 3-1. Belgium and South Korea drew 1-1.

Dennis Bergkamp eventually found the key to unlock South Korea and kick off Oranjes run in 1998 after 38 minutes. He fed Phillip Cocu to break the deadlock before Marc Overmars (42) doubled the margin. Bergkamp (71) would also get a goal for himself after the break.

Time remained for Overmars to turn provider and cross for Pierre van Hooijdonk to head in on 80 minutes. Wim Jonk then recorded a second assist to complete a 5-0 win at the Stade Velodrome in Marseille for Guus Hiddinks side when he found Ronald de Boer in the 83rd.

Brazils 4-1 win over South Korea in the Round of 16 at Qatar 2022 now ranks at 4 for the Taegeuk Warriors biggest World Cup defeats to date. The result saw Paulo Bentos side go home in the first knockout round after clawing their way out of Group E at the last chance.

Uruguay held South Korea to a goalless draw in their opening fixture at the Education City Stadium in Al Rayyan. The ground would host all three of the Taegeuk Warriors Group E fixtures. But that was of little comfort when Ghana secured a 3-2 win in their second tie.

A quick-fire Cho Gue-Sung (58, 61) brace had drawn South Korea level after Mohammed Salisu (24) and Mohammed Kudus (34) struck for the Black Stars. But his goals only kept the meeting even for seven minutes before Kudus (68) fired home his second for the win.

Ricardo Horta then seemed set to end South Koreas time at Qatar 2022 in Group E when he gave Portugal a 1-0 lead after five minutes. Even Kim Young-Gwon (27) equalising was not enough to advance with Uruguay beating Ghana 2-0. But Hwang Hee-Chan delivered.

Hwang fired home in the first minute of stoppage-time to put South Korea through ahead of Uruguay on goals scored. Both teams had one win, a draw and identical goal differences at zero. But South Korea had scored four goals none through Son to La Celestes two.

Argentina also beat South Korea 4-1 at the 2010 edition in South Africa

Another South American nation has also beaten South Korea 4-1 at a World Cup after two-time champions Argentina triumphed at South Africa 2010. The 1978 and 1986 champions edged the Taegeuk Warriors in their second meeting in Group B after beating Nigeria 1-0.

South Korea had kicked off their 2010 run with a 2-0 win over Greece and would follow La Albiceleste out of the group by drawing 2-2 with Nigeria. But the Taegeuk Warriors did not stop Argentina from topping the group with a perfect record of three wins from three ties.

Chu-Young Park also gave Argentina the advantage after scoring an own goal in the 16th minute. Nicolas Burdisso then combined with Gonzalo Higuain to lead 2-0 on 32 minutes. But Chung-Yong Lee gave South Korea a lifeline on the cusp of half-time but it was in vain.

Higuain came back out for the second half and secured his hat-trick on 75 and 79 minutes. The forward tapped the ball in to strike out Lees effort before heading in Sergio Agueros cross. Uruguay would also later end South Koreas 2010 World Cup run in the Round of 16.

Algeria came within 18 minutes of matching Argentinas 2010 result when they met South Korea at Brazil 2014. FIFA drew the nations together in Group H for the 20th edition of its tournament. It also scheduled the clash to fall in the middle of their first round fixture lists.

Islam Slimani needed 26 minutes to break the deadlock for Algeria at the Estadio Beira-Rio in Porto Alegre. But Rafik Halliche only took another two to stretch The Fennec Foxes lead before Abdelmoumene Djabou made it 3-0 by the 38th minute as Algeria began to cruise.

Son would peg the North African country back in the 50th minute with the first of his three goals at World Cups across 10 appearances at three editions. But Sofiane Feghouli assisted Yacine Brahimi 12 minutes later on to restore the margin before Ja-Cheol Koo (72) replied.

The 4-2 result helped Algeria follow Belgium out of Group H as the Fennec Foxes then held Russia to a 1-1 draw. South Korea finished bottom of the pack with one point from nine as they lost 1-0 to Belgium. The Taegeuk Warriors held Russia to a 1-1 draw in their first game.
