Soccer-Sweden and South Korea draw blank in scrappy first half

NIZHNY NOVGOROD, Russia, June 18 (Reuters) - Sweden dominated the aerial battle and had the best of the chances but were being held 0-0 by South Korea at halftime in a scrappy Group F encounter at the Nizhny Novgorod Stadium on Monday.

Swedish striker Marcus Berg had the best opportunity to break the deadlock, but side-footed the ball into the knee of South Korea goalkeeper Cho Hyun-woo from point blank range in the 21st minute. (Writing by Nick Mulvenney, editing by Hugh Lawson)
