There was still time for Ji Yun-Nam to pull one back for the Koreans, who were over the Ban Ki-moon. But despite their best efforts, and a late rasper over the bar, the world order prevailed. Shame.
But that’s still only 23 goals in 14 games. The only shots from outside the box have been scuffed efforts which crawled through the goalkeepers arms, as England’s Robert Green and Algeria’s Fawzi Chaouchi may recall.
