Park Ji Sung scored his second from the penalty spot in as many games to lock up Group B for the South Koreans as they march on into the second round. The big incident occurred five minutes after the restart when Woo put in Lee Chung Yong only for him to be brought down by the keeper. Vincent Enyeama was quickly given the red card before Sung dispatched his kick past the substitute Austin Ejide.
The first half was quite even with both teams threatening the goal without really testing the goalies. Nigeria clipped the crossbar through Kalta in the 6th minute and South Korea's best chance came off the head of Yong who got under the ball and sent it high. After the penalty the game petered out a little and South Korea could not finish off their opponents. Ejide did his part for Nigeria in stopping both Young with his shoulder and Yong with fingertips, but the shorthanded team in front of him could not generate much interest around the Korean box.
