South Korea will be looking to cause a famous upset when they come up against the much-fancied Brazil in the last 16 at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
Tite’s team topped their group with six points, the same number as second-placed Switzerland but with a superior goal difference.
Their qualification had been in doubt after a goalless draw with Uruguay was followed by a defeat to Ghana in a five-goal classic.

Brazil v South Korea head-to-head
Brazil and South Korea have previously met on seven occasions with the South American side having come out on top on six of those.
Brazil have scored 16 goals to South Korea’s five in their previous meetings with the last being a 5-1 thrashing in an international friendly earlier this year on June 2.
Neymar limped off in Brazil’s opener against Serbia and missed the next two group games against Switzerland and Cameroon.
Despite a 1-0 loss to Cameroon in the final group game, Brazil still won Group G to set up a tie with South Korea in the last 16.
Speaking at a press conference, Tite gave an update on Neymar’s situation following the 30-year-old’s return to training.
“Yeah,” Tite responded when asked if Neymar would play on Monday. “He will train this afternoon, he will be in the game.”
Tite also explained he would like to wait until after training before selecting his final line-up and whether Neymar will start or not is yet to be confirmed.
