Sweet! Korea advances to sweet 16!
So yesterday I watched the first volley of worldcup games in a bar in Jongno. One of the customers was from France and was really excited for their game with South Africa, but SBS was showing the Mexico Uruguay game instead. I guess it doesn’t matter because no matter what happened in the France South Africa game, Mexico and Uruguay both advanced. After that game I went home and tried to stay awake so I could catch Korea vs. Nigeria at 3:30 AM (Korea time). I drifted in an out of sleep while watching it, but the shouting of the Korean announcers when Korea defeated Nigeria 2-1 to advance woke me up. So I can’t say I actually saw the game, but I was awoken when the magic happened. It looks like the next match for Korea will be Uruguay on Saturday the 26th at 11:00 Korea time.
If Korea can get past that, then I predict a Korea vs U.S. match on July 2nd. (This means I’m predicting the U.S. to win group C and win against whichever group D opponent they will face).
Man I’m tired..
(Edit Wow, I just realized now that Korea didn’t actually beat Nigeria, but drew 2-2. I told you I was sleeping and only awoke when the TV started shouting at me. Then I turned it off.)
