Stielike is not liking South Korea’s chances against the tournament hosts…
South Korea bos Uli Stielike says his side have no chance of beating the Socceroos on Saturday if they repeat their poor performance against Kuwait.

Stielike’s side booked its passage to the quarter finals with a 1-0 win over Kuwait in Canberra, but the German was not satisfied with his side’s performance.
With football like this, you cannot win the tournament,” Stielike said after the match.
“With a performance like today, you cannot go far in this tournament.”
Stielike said South Korea were very fortunate to claim the three points and even went as far as to say Kuwait were the better side on the night.
“What I have to say is sad for my side (but) in a lot of phases, Kuwait was the better team — better handling of the ball, more moves, more passes,” he said.
“The result I consider, very, very lucky.”
South Korea face a rampant Australia on Saturday in Brisbane, and Stielike says his side have no chance of claiming the three points if they put in a repeat performance.
“Against Australia, if we play the same way, (we’ll have) no chance,” he said.
