South Korea 2 – 1 Italy


At this point, we’re desperate to keep the Koreans apart from the Italians. No good will come of it. For the Azzuri, certainly. Another giant killing, though. South Korea were clearly enjoying the home crowd, having already overcome a thoroughly decent Portugal side that only recently reached the semi finals of the EUROS. Italy had four goals disallowed, prompting them to claim that the match was rigged. Which is all a bit ironic, isn’t it?!
