INNSBRUCK, Austria — South Korea was held by Bolivia to a goalless draw in a World Cup warmup on Thursday.

South Korea dominated possession but missed forward Son Heung-min, who was rested for the first hour.

Central defender Jang Hyun-soo, who missed the two previous games because of an ankle injury, was back as coach Shin Tae-yong returned to a 4-4-2 formation after experimenting recently.

South Korea will play another friendly against Senegal on Monday before traveling to Russia.

It has Sweden, Mexico and Germany in Group F.

It was the fifth straight winless match for Bolivia, which failed to qualify for the World Cup.
