South Korea Draws with Russia 1-1

ANTI KPOP-FANGIRL IS YOUR ONE STOP FOR UP-TO-DATE WORLD CUP COVERAGE.
The man of the hour, Lee Keun Ho
The South Koreans manage to draw with the Russians in a 1-1 game full of gaffes and hilarity.



The only Korean goal comes from a truly lucker-dog kick from yung Lee Keun Ho at 68' in what will surely go down in World Cup history as one of the most hilarious (or embarrassing).



Yes, that just happened. Lee sends a solid kick down the pitch straight into the hands of Russian keeper Igor Akinfeev in what should have been an easy save... BUT THE BALL REBOUNDS OFF HIS HANDS, JUMPS OVER HIS HEAD, SLIPS OUT OF HIS HANDS (AGAIN), AND PLANTS ITSELF IN THE BACK OF THE NET.

Truly divine providence.

Unfortunately for Korean and Koreaboos all over the world, Russia equalizes at 74', but the shame will never go away.

What does this mean for Korean Cup dreams? Since the group favorites Belgium remain strong with a 2-1 victory over Algeria, the driver's seat remains in Korean hands from here on out. Here's the group standings after today. 6 1 4 0

If Korea wants to get out of groups, they have to beat Algeria to keep the dream alive. Make sure you tune in on Sunday June 22nd to support your oppas.

  1. I've only watch the last ~20 minutes because, well, football is utter shit (just as every sport on TV).
    So I was rooting for Russia to make that fucking goal, eventhough I hate Putin.

  3. You need to see USA's goal against England back in 2010. That was a joke.

    2. On a serious note, it can happen. That is if both teams manage to qualify from their respective groups, and one of them win their group while the other become runner up.
