World Cup 2010, Nigeria Vs. South Korea: Nightmare Defending Leads To Kalu Uche Opener

Nigeria is ahead in the 12th minute against South Korea, with Kalu Uche taking advantage of poor defending to give the Super Eagles a 1-0 lead.

Off a throw in, right back Chidi Odiah was able to penetrate down the right flank and get a cross into the box. The service look innocuous enough until Uche was able to slip past right back Cha Du-Ri and redirect the shot home for the opening goal.

Cha, who was controversially dropped from the lineup against Argentina, failed to aggressively play the cross, allowing Uche to run around him and get his right foot on the cross, beating Jung Sung-Ryong near post.
