Korea draws against Russia in first match Updated: 2014-06-18 09:08:15 KST

Let's jump straight into the details of Korea's ONE-ONE draw against Russia.
We have our sportscaster SJ Lee standing by to tell us about the match.
SJ the game picked up in the second half, but it'll probably be remembered for an absolute howler from the Russian goalkeeper?

That's right Mark it shocked a lot of fans that it actually went in but either way Manager Hong Myung-bo stated that he won't lose and he was sort of right.
Although Korea looked sloppy in the beginning of the match they kick it up a notch in the latter half of the 1st half
as they played very aggressive in the rest of the 1st half.
Still tied 0-0 the first goal came from Lee Keun-ho who subbed in for Park Chu-young in the second half
as Korea took the lead 1-0 in the 68th.
But despite the lead Korea's defense collapses in the 74th minute as Aleksandr Kerzhakov levels the match
giving both nations one point in the 1-1 draw.
