South Korea 2-0 Greece

South Korea began their World Cup campaign with a 2-0 victory over Greece in Port Elizabeth.

South Korea impressed with plenty of endevour and earned their reward with goals in either half from Lee Jung-soo and Park Ji-sung.

Korea took the lead when Ki Sung-yueng's free-kick from close to the right corner flag was inadvertently flicked on by Kostantinos Katsouranis at the near post into the path of an onrushing centre-back Lee Jung-soo, who volleyed home from a mertre out with the Greek defence nowhere in sight.

South Korea doubled their lead when Loukas Vyntra displayed an awful first touch and Park Ji-sung to stole the ball and charged into the box before sliding a well-placed left-footed strike past the onrushing Tzoras.

Greece produced only two genuine attempts on goal while, in contrast, Huh Jung-moo's team could have won by a larger margin had Monaco striker Park Chu-young been more clinical in front of goal.
