1st Half I thought This game going to be ours.. Hit Crossbar twice that's 4 so far.. BUT Itlay took chances in 2nd half and it worked out for them. One big striker stay on top and keep the ball till MF comes.. Good strategies and KoreaRep were not prepare for it. Good news is we have another game to play and hopefully make it to round of 16.

"Even before kick-off, we knew it was going to be extremely difficult. The South Koreans have proved they're an extremely good team today. They caused us no end of trouble in the first half, but we showed character and spirit, and we were a lot better after the break." Pasquale Salerno, Italy coach
