Nigeria put up a brave fight
NIGERIA ................................ 2 SOUTH KOREA ...................... 2 SOUTh Korea will face Uruguay in the last 16 after a hard-fought draw with nigeria was enough to secure second place in Group B.
The asian side have never been past the opening stage of a World cup held outside of their own country and were made to fight to the last minute for the point which put them through.
nigeria created chances throughout and took the lead when chidi Odiah squared for Kalu Uche to tap in early on.
But South Korea hit back through Lee Jung-Soo who scrambled past Vincent enyeama from Ki Sung-Yeung’s free-kick.
Park chu-Young’s curled free kick restored South Korea’s lead four minutes into the second half but Yakubu coolly slotted in a penalty after Kim nam-il fouled Obasi Ogbuke to level the game.
nigeria started the game looking like a different proposition to the side that produced disjointed displays in their defeats by argentina and Greece.
