Team News: England-based quartet start for South Korea

South Korea name four England-based players in their starting lineup for tonight's Group H match against Russia.

South Korea manager Hong Myung-Bo has named four England-based players in his starting lineup for tonight's clash with Russia.

Swansea City midfielder Ki Sung-Yueng, who spent last season on loan at Sunderland, will line up in midfield, while there are also starts for Arsenal forward Park Chu-Young, Queens Park Rangers' Yun Suk-young and Lee Chung-Yong of Bolton Wanderers.

Meanwhile, Russia manager Fabio Capello has opted to select Denis Glushakov in midfield rather than Igor Denisov, while Alexander Kokorin, who was a slight doubt heading into the game, starts up front.

Earlier today Belgium kicked off Group H with a 2-1 win over Algeria.

Russia: Akinfeev, Ignashevich, Glushakov, Kokorin, Berezutskiy, Shatov, Zhirkov, Samedov, Fayzulin, Eshchenko, Kombarov
