1. Heung Min-Son
An absolute beast in the forward, Heung Min-Son is South Korea’s best player in recent memory. He is fast and direct and could trouble the Brazilian defence with his runs into the box. He will likely start on the left of midfield and try and create openings for his strikers.
2. Jung Woo-young
The central midfielder knows he is up against a Brazilian side that has some of the most technically adept players in their ranks. Jung Woo-Yong has to track the runs of the Selecao strikers and try and break their play with each opportunity possible.
The central midfielder could provide the much-needed freshness in midfield for Brazil with Casemiro dropping out. He has been in top form for Liverpool in the English Premier League, and Brazil could do with his positional sense and creativity against South Korea.
Everton forward Richarlison has immense potential, and Tite could hand him a start in place of Gabriel Jesus. He not only likes to take on the opposition with his direct runs, but he is equally good in the box with his precision finishing.
5. Philippe Coutinho
The Bayern Munich man is the heart and soul of this Brazil team, particularly in the absence of Neymar. He has not been his usual self in the last few games for the national side, but a player like him cannot be contained for long.
