The Saudi Arabia vs South Korea live stream is a huge match-up between two of the major sides at the AFC Asian Cup. It should be a thrilling tie of knock-out football - and can watch live streams from anywhere with a VPN.
South Korea are many people’s favourites to win the tournament. With the likes of Son Heung-min and Kim Min-jae in their lineup, it’s not hard to see why. However, the Reds have not really been at their best at this AFC Asian Cup. They have been involved in plenty of drama though, including a 2-2 draw with Jordan and a 3-3 draw with Malaysia. In Lee Kang-in they have one of the top scorers in the competition.
Saudi Arabia’s games have not been as high scoring as their opponents, but the Falcons soared comfortably into the Round of 16, winning Group F on seven points. The Reds' attack will provide a far sterner test than they have had so far. In Roberto Mancini, they have a manager who knows all about navigating tournament football but can he get the better of opposite number Jürgen Klinsmann in today's encounter?
Here's how they line up:
Saudi Arabia: Al Kassar; Al Tambkati, Lajami, Al Buhayi; Abdulhamid, N. Al Dawsari, Al Khaibari, Kanno, Al Burayk; S. Al Dawsari, Al Shehri
South Park: Jo Hyeon-woo; Kim Tae-hwan, Kim Min-jae, Kim Young-gwon, Kim Jin-su; Lee Kang-in, Hwang In-beom, Lee Jae-sung; Jeong Woo-yeong, Son Heung-min

How to watch Saudi Arabia vs South Korea live streams from anywhere with a VPN
A VPN, or virtual private network, makes it look as if you're surfing the web from your home country, rather than the one you're in. That means you can access the streaming services you already pay for, from any country on Earth.
For instance, a Brit who's currently away from the U.K. could watch Saudi Arabia vs South Korea live streams on Triller TV+.
ExpressVPN really does tick every box. It's fast, secure and straightforward to use. Even if you do run in to trouble, there's genuinely helpful 24/7 customer service there to get you through. And you can even give it a try risk-free, thanks to its 30-day money-back guarantee.
Using a VPN is incredibly simple.
1. Install the VPN of your choice. As we've said, ExpressVPN is our favorite.
2. Choose the location you wish to connect to in the VPN app. So if you're in Canada and want to view a British service such as Triller TV+, you'd select 'U.K.' from the server list.
