About M.E. myself and I

I have been an M.E. sufferer for a long time now, but sports replay gaming is an easy hobby for me to enjoy. Originally from Canvey Island, Essex, I was introduced to replay gaming a few years ago, leading to my first purchase: Cricket World. Most sports I share will be common, but there are some more obscure replays thrown in. Thank you for visiting and I hope you enjoy your stay. Feel free to say hello! - Chris

Final Score - WC2010 Quarterfinal, South Korea vs Ghana

Saturday 3rd July 2010 - Cape Town Stadium, Cape Town - Att. 64,100
Referee: Ravshan Irmatov (Uzbekistan)

South Korea (451): Ryong, Ri (KH Il 69'), Pyo, Hyung, LJ Soo, Yueng, Woo (Kyung 69'), Hun (KM Soo 80'), Young, PJ Sung, Yong
Ghana (451): Kingson, Pantsil, Sarpei, John Mensah, Johnathon Mensah (Boateng 61'), Annan, Asamoah (I Ayew 88'), Tagoe, Gyan, Prince-Boateng, A Ayew (Owusu-Abeiya 83')

While not a match for the ages, both teams went all out in the opening ten minutes, rushing forward at every opportunity with South Korea not quite able to penetrate and Ghana forcing Ryong to save down low on shots from Johnathon Mensah and Ayew. The next thirty-five minutes was an exercise in futility as both sides locked down their defences tight and played out a largely dull first half.

The second half also started with a lot of excitement. Prince-Boateng couldn't believe his header was saved on the goalline, and he was frustrated seconds later on the resulting corner when his volley fizzed just wide. ten minutes after the restart and there was a goal to celebrate. A fluffed claerance by Richard Kingson fell straight to Hun whose quick thinking split the defence and Park Chu Young drove a hard shot past the shamed Ghanian keeper.

Young had a chance to make it 2-0 in the 74th minute but, like the last three Korean matches, could not add any more goals with this chance going high after another great pass this time from Sung. Ghana looked bereft of ideas but they would end the match with a man advantage. Defender Cho Yong Hyung was booked for the second time in the 88th minute and will miss the semifinal clash against either Jpana or Portugal.

GHA Prince-Boateng 30'
