BOLIVIA and South Korea enter tonight's game at the Foxboro Stadium in Massachusetts still seeking their first World Cup finals win. Bolivia have not scored in their four matches that span three tournaments while South Korea gained their second draw from nine games when they came back from two goals down against Spain.

Bolivia, who lost to Germany 1-0 in their opening Group C game, are not taking their opponents lightly. 'South Korea are as difficult a team as Germany or Spain,' Xavier Azkargorta, their coach, said. 'It's not only that they run a lot, but that they run very fast.'

South Korea's coach, Kim Ho, has picked an unchanged team and is confident of victory. 'Bolivia are a good team and they will be hard to beat, but we will win.'

BOLIVIA (probable): Trucco (Bolivar); Rimba (Bolivar), Quinteros (The Strongest), Sandy (Bolivar), Cristaldo (Bolivar); Borja (Bolivar), Melgar (The Strongest), Soria (Bolivar), Sanchez (Boavista); Baldivieso (Bolivar), Ramallo (Oriente Petrolero).

SOUTH KOREA (probable): Choi In Young (Hyundai Horang-I); Kim Pan Keun (Lucky Goldstar Cheetahs), Hong Myong Bo (POSCO Atoms), Choi Young Il (Hyundai Horang-I), Park Jung Bae (Daewoo Royals), Shin Hong Gi (Hyundai Horang-I), Lee Young Jin (Lucky Goldstar Cheetahs), Noh Jung Yoon (Sanfrecce Hiroshima), Kim Joo Sung (VfL Bochum), Ko Jeong Woon (Ilhwa Chonma), Hwang Sun Hong (Posco Atoms).
