Man Utd favourite Park convinced South Korea can beat Argentina

Manchester United midfielder Park Ji-sung is convinced South Korea can upset World Cup group opponents Argentina.

Park, 29, was on target as Korea kicked off their Group B campaign in South Africa with a comfortable 2-0 win over Greece.

And the Manchester United ace is confident they can shock Diego Maradona's star-studded team in Johannesburg.

He said: "Argentina, of course, are the strongest team in our group and people are saying they could make the final. They have a lot of top international players.

"But before the World Cup, we played a friendly against Spain and we thought about Argentina as we were playing that game.

"Of course, there is a lot of difference between the two teams, but the unexpected can happen in this World Cup - and that is what we are looking to do."
