World Cup 2010, Nigeria Vs. South Korea: Yakubu Aiyegbeni Equalizes From The Spot

Yakubu Aiyegbeni converted a 69th minute penalty kick to pull Nigeria even with South Korea, 2-2, moments after a horrible miss that would have done the same.

Two minutes after Yakubu missed an open net from four yards out, the striker was given the duty of finishing a penalty kick awarded with Kim Nam-Il took down Chinedu Obasi in the South Korea area.

Yakubu went left while Jung Sung-Ryong dove right, evening the match at two.

As the Group B results stand, South Korea would still do through to the knockout stage, advancing over Greece on goals scored (five to two).
