World Cup 2010, Nigeria Vs. South Korea: Vincent Enyeama Error Allows Park Chu-Young Goal

Nigerian goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama misread a direct kick from Park Chu-Young, allowing South Korea’s second goal 48 minutes into their match with the Super Eagles.

Park struck the dead ball from 20 yards out, with Enyeama jumping behind his wall moments before contact. Parks ball curled just inside the vacated, far post for a South Korean goal and a 2-1 lead.

The goal gives South Korea one foot in the knockout stage. As Group B currently sites (with Greece and Argentina drawn 0-0), South Korea would finish second in Group B with six points, two ahead of Greece. Even if Nigeria were to pull a goal back, Greece would be two goals behind in the relevant tiebreaker: goals scored.
