Good afternoon guys, now just like you said, the fans had high expectation for the team going into this match but unfortunately their defense looked terrible in the 1st half.
Now Korea looking shaky from the start as the Algeria offense play aggressively from the start. And in the 26th minute they finally fine one back of the net as Islam Slimani scores off of a long pass giving Algeria the 1-0 lead. But just 2 minutes later the Korean defense collapses again giving up the second goal on a corner as Algeria goes up 2-0 early on. But the defense continues to struggle as Korea goes down 3-0 at the half. Now Son Heung-min would score in the 50th minute but that goes to waste as Korea quickly gives up another goal. Now Koo Ja-cheol would add the 2nd Korean goal but Algeria takes this match 4-2.
