Russia and S Korea play out a dreary draw

Alexandr Kerzhakov, sole survivor from the 2002 World Cup squad, scored just 3 minutes after coming on as a substitute in a 1-1 draw for Russia against S Korea. Korea went ahead when Russian goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev inexplicably let a Lee Keunho shot slip through his fingers. The explosive 6-minute spell that featured the goals was an aberration in an otherwise insipid game characterised by blundering build-up, poor passing and blustering finishing. Korean mid-fielder H M Son was Man of the Match. A paltry 37,603 fans turned up in Arena Pantanal, Cuiaba, which is the exact geographic centre of South America, an equidistant 2,000 km from the Atlantic and Pacific oceans.
