|The man of the hour, Lee Keun Ho|
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.
