Diego Maradona ready for Soccer City encounter.
Argentina will not risk playmaker Juan Veron, who is carrying a calf problem. Liverpool midfielder Maxi Rodriguez is set to replace the 35-year-old.
Coach Diego Maradona is tipped to recall Nicolas Burdisso following Jonas Gutierrez’s unconvincing performance at right-back in the win against Nigeria.
South Korea coach Huh Jung-moo is unlikely to make many changes after the impressive victory against Greece. Monaco striker Park Chu-young will lead the line, with captain Park Ji-sung providing support from midfield.

Both sides go into this Soccer City Group B encounter knowing that a win will see them through to the knock out stages. Diego Maradona will be pleased his side registered a win against Nigeria in their World Cup opener but not so pleased with the overall performance which saw their side have plenty of chances to kill the game off as they came up against an inspired display from Vincent Enyeama.
South Korea had an easier time of it against Greece but know that things will be an altogether tougher prospect against the South American side who could put Huh Jung-moo’s side under a great deal of pressure. Maxi’s likely inclusion may well offer Maradona a more dynamic approach and the Liverpool man has been in fine form for his country and will relish the chance to prove himself.
