I'm shocked, Nigeria should always win this match. How do you make 2 mistakes which lead to a free kick goal. And how on earth do you miss all those chances, like Yakubu c'mon man that's misser of the tournament right there. Good match from both teams though

Good match, but the South Koreans are just smarter footballers than the Nigerians. Too many silly fouls from the African nationals. I'm happy to see the Koreans pass through to the second round.... Greece was really disappointing for me though, but I'm not that surprised that they've been eliminated. What I'm most surprised about is that Messi has yet to score

Wow terrible luck Nigeria has had this tournament.
Never wouldve lost to Greece of it wasnt for Kaita, I guess Africans must really learn to control themselves if they are to ever really succeed in the finals

As always.... The problem in African players, .... Is that they have this massive speed.... And great skills.... But placement is what they lack.... They always shoot in a stupid way without finding the back of the net.... If you let an african player shoot from 25 Yards away from the goal.... He'll put it better than 16 Yards away....
They always miss great chances.... Hard luck anyway.... And good luck in next WC maybe.... Its a bit shame they lost.... 'cause they have class.... But as I said they lack the finishing touch and placement!

Pretty exciting game watching miss fired tremendous chances on both teams. S Korea knew how to control the field a bit more but I doubt they can win Uruguay with such sloppy defenders. They are still the best team in Asia but, in order not to be eliminated on the first game of the knock out stage, their defence should be much much tighter. Feel sorry about the super eagles.... Yakubu and Martins are to be blamed! Lol

Good match by both teams.... A really silly penalty to give away from that south korean player.... I was really pissed, yakubu missed a sitter although he was clearly offside and koreans had some chances too to double the lead, all in all fair result and fair game I must say.... Good luck to south korea in the next round...

I know there have already been death threats against a nigerian player. I sincerely hope that this match does not result in anyone's death. This is a great game, but it is not worth any human's life. I thought nigeria were the better team to be honest, the ball just did not bounce their way. If anyone get's killed, then that is just f'ing disgusting!
