Hello, and welcome to Prime Time Sports. I'm Steven Choi.
Day 6 at the World Cup had Group H finally taking the field for their first official matches, of course, culminating in the pivotal game between South Korea and Russia.
Despite kick-off after sundown, it was a hot and humid start to the match.

In the first half, Korea's attack, led by Koo Ja-cheol, showed promise, but lacked the finishing touch and the Russians had the edge in aggressiveness.

And, with the 2nd half tipping to Korea early on, a timely substitution, bringing in Lee Keun-ho, proved to be the spark, as his hard-hit strike found its way past the keeper.

Minutes later, Russian sub, Aleksandr Kerzhakov capitalized on a sloppy clearance to level up the score.

And, the match ended like that, in a 1-1 draw.
