Group G - Brazil 2-1 Korea DPR: Brazil beat resilient Koreans

Brazil secured a 2-1 win against Korea DPR but they were made to work extremely hard to secure maximum points after the Asian outsiders showed impressive resilience. The Koreans kept the Brazilians scoreless until ten minutes into the second half when Maicon scored a stunning goal from an outrageous angle. When Elano doubled the lead midway through the second half it appeared all over, but a late goal from Ji Yun Nam saw Brail endure some nervy moments in the final minutes.

The story is too old to be commented.

It was quite touching seeing Jong Tae-Se crying during the national anthem and then having such a good match.
