South Korea Snatch Dramatic Late Win Over Portugal to Reach Last 16

Must read

Despite a shaky start to the competition, South Korea has snatched a dramatic late win over Portugal to reach the last 16. Despite Portugal’s best efforts, the Koreans escaped with a 2-1 victory. In what is the worst-ever hosting performance for a nation in World Cup history, the hosts failed to convert the game’s first goal, allowing South Korea to draw level with the home team.

South Korea beat Portugal 2-1

Despite being held to a 1-1 draw by Uruguay, South Korea fought back in an epic World Cup group match to beat Portugal 2-1 in extra time. In the end, the win combined with another game result to send the Koreans through to the knockout stages.

South Korea got off to the worst possible start when a fifth minute goal by Ricardo Horta was enough to see Portugal into the lead. But after a half-hour of dominance from Portugal, Kim Young-gwon levelled things up. He lashed home an easy goal after a pass from Son Heung-min.

After the break, South Korea showed some promise, although they were unable to make their usual impact in the second half. Their defence largely dealt with threats well.

Ronaldo’s first chance

Despite a goalless first half, South Korea rallied to win 2-1 over Portugal in the World Cup group stages. The two teams finished with four points each, with the win taking Korea into the last 16 on goal difference. They can still qualify with a win against Uruguay.

South Korea had a chance to go ahead when Kim Young-gwon scored a goal early in the second half. After Ronaldo’s mistake, Young-gwon pounced on the ricochet. He rounded Diogo Costa and buried the ball past the keeper’s left hand. The 32-year-old is the second-oldest player to score in a World Cup.

Ronaldo had an early chance to score, but he could not get his shot away. He turned his head away before the ball hit his back. After the ball rolled over his head, he was called offside.

Penalty given by VAR

Despite scoring a goal, South Korea’s snatching a last-gasp victory over Portugal in Nizhny Novgorod was not the most impressive performance. This was a poor performance from a team that has not been able to replicate Tottenham Hotspur’s form on the international stage.

South Korea have won 15 points from their 10 games, but have failed to score many goals. They are grouped alongside perennial knockout stage participants Mexico and Germany. That is not to say they are lacking in talent or motivation. However, they have yet to score many goals and they have had to make changes.

The other major omen is a VAR-aided penalty in Sweden’s 1-0 victory over South Korea. The goal was scored through VAR and it is the first time in World Cup history that the technology has been used to give a goal.

Wales beat Austria 2-1

Despite a nervy finish, Wales beat Austria 2-1 to reach the last 16. Wales will play Scotland or Ukraine in a play-off final in late June. The winner of this match will qualify for the World Cup in Qatar. It’s Wales’ first World Cup appearance since 1958.

Wales were largely comfortable in the first half. Austria created a few chances but their pressure was not enough to break through. Austria pressed Wales but they failed to create clear-cut opportunities.

In the fifth minute, Christoph Baumgartner spurned an early chance. He hit the crossbar. The ball was cleared by Wales. Then, Neco Williams headed a shot wide.

Bale scored a crucial goal for Wales. His first goal was a free kick, which he volleyed into the top corner. Bale scored a second goal early in the second half.

Qatar become the worst host nation of all time

Earlier this week, Qatar became the first host nation to be eliminated from the World Cup after just two games. The country had been drawn in Group A with Netherlands and Senegal. After a 2-0 loss to Ecuador on opening day, Qatar stumbled out of the tournament and finished with zero points.

The tournament was plagued by controversy both on and off the pitch. One of the main reasons for criticism was migrant workers. As many as 6,500 migrant workers were said to have died in Qatar in the lead up to the tournament.

Another reason for criticism was a plethora of archaic LBGTQ+ laws. In addition, many have questioned the tournament’s financial and human rights credentials. While there is a legitimate debate around the tournament, most of the criticism has focused on these issues.
