South Korea in the 2002 World Cup

Group D

South Korea vs Poland

In this match, Poland looked totally disappointing and South Korea very inspired; thanks to great home support from their totally committed fans.

South Korea vs United States

The Koreans looked as though they wanted to win this game more than America and the United States can thank their heroic goalkeeper for the point.

Portugal vs South Korea

South Korea remain unbeaten and progress to the Second Round; knocking out Portugal in the process.

Knockout Stage

South Korea vs Italy (Second Round)

South Korea brought joy to the nation when they disposed of former World Cup winners Italy, in a tense period of extra-time.

Spain vs South Korea (Quarter-final)

South Korea delighted the home crowd by disposing of their third European nation; even if it was at the penalty shootout.

Germany vs South Korea (Semi-final)

So the conspiracy theories can end; although we all know South Korea didn't want to play in Yokohama and will enjoy the third-place match in Daegu.

South Korea vs Turkey (3rd Place Match)

Song Chong-Gug managed to stun Rustu; when his long-shot deflected off Cha Doo-Ri's bottom, in injury time, for a last consolation goal that ended the game on a slight high note for the home fans.
