The ESPN FC panel discuss Group F, which contains Germany, Mexico, Sweden and South Korea.

South Korea handed fellow 2018 World Cup finalists Japan a brutal 4-1 home thrashing on Saturday night as Kim Shin-Wook inspired Shin Tae-Yong's side to a come-from-behind win that sealed a successful defence of the East Asian Championship title.

J.League Player of the Year Yu Kobayashi gave Japan a third minute lead from the penalty spot in Tokyo. But Kim's double, and goals from Jung Woo-young and Yeom Ki-Hun's deflected free-kick, earned the South Koreans an emphatic and historic win.

Gen Shoji's outrageous strike from the edge of the centre circle put considerable gloss on another muted performance from World Cup-bound Japan as Vahid Halilhodzic's makeshift side secured a 2-1 win over China at the East Asian Championship in Tokyo on Tuesday evening.

Yosuke Ideguchi ready to leave Japan, risk World Cup selection for Leeds

The ESPN FC crew feel Group H is the most unpredictable with Poland, Senegal, Colombia and Japan making up the group.

Japan international midfielder Yosuke Ideguchi scored the winning goal against North Korea on Saturday in the East Asian Championships, and then told reporters that he is ready to join Leeds United.

According to reports in Tokyo, the Gamba Osaka star has agreed to move to the English second-tier side in January, but expects to be loaned out to another country in the European Union as he does not yet meet the requirements necessary to receive a British work permit.

Ideguchi goal in 94th minute helps Japan edge North Korea in Tokyo

The ESPN FC crew feel Group H is the most unpredictable with Poland, Senegal, Colombia and Japan making up the group.

Japan had a late strike from Yosuke Ideguchi to thank for earning a fortuitous 1-0 win over North Korea on Saturday to put Vahid Halilhodzic's side on top of the early standings at the East Asian Championships.
