Nigeria 2 Republic of Korea 2

12’ Odiah made a determined run, passed to Uche. 1-0. Uche went close with a powerful drive over the crossbar on 23’, Obasi had his shot saved on 30’, Uche hit the post on 36’. However, Rep. Korea equalised through Yungsoo, 38’, after a free kick.

The second half was hardly under way when Chuyoung Park scored the second from a direct free kick on 49’. Enyeama saved a shot from Chuyoung on 61’.

67’ Yakubo, three yards out, open goal. He stabbed the ball wide. At this level, with a failure like that, the writing is on the wall. However, on 68’ Nigeria had another chance: penalty after Namil brought down Obasi. Yakubu made up for his miss. 2-2.
