Korea Republic: Qualifying for the eight consecutive World Cup finals should be morale lifting for Korea Republic. The only Asian nation to reach semi-finals in 2002, Korea Republic features themselves along with Belgium, Algeria and Russia in Group H in this World Cup. Korea Republic would like to better their record of the previous edition where they were knocked out in round of 16. Ja-cheol and goalkeeper Jung Sung-Ryong are the key players for the Reds.
Algeria: They are expected to bow out of the tournament without a point but for Algerians the 2014 world cup is a tournament of hope and pride. At the 2010 event, they held a poor England side to a draw so they just might look to play spoilers for other team. They have a reputation of lacklustre performances at major finals after constant qualifications to these tournaments.
