South Korea vs. Algeria, World Cup 2014: TV schedule and kickoff time

Ian Walton

Can either South Korea or Algeria snag a win to take control of their own destiny?

Algeria and South Korea both looked solid in their opening games, but they won't be terribly pleased with the results. The Koreans only snagged a draw against Russia because of an awful howler, while Algeria let a lead slip late against Belgium.

With Russia and Belgium facing off against each other earlier, someone's going to drop points, opening up a window for one of these teams if they can grab a win. A draw isn't necessarily a disaster for either, but it would keep the door wide open for Russia to get through, even if they lose.

It's very possible that both teams go with unchanged lineups for this game, given that they turned in decent performances and didn't pick up any injuries. However, Algeria did play pretty defensively against Belgium, and could bring striker Islam Slimani back into the team against a seemingly weaker opponent. South Korea could make a change of their own, since their lone goal-scorer -- Lee Keun-Ho -- started the last game on the bench.
