South Korea played with so much class against Russias, they had them under pressure throughout the game and just when they took the lead through Keun-Ho Lee in 68th minute of the match it looked like all three points for Korea, but Russia turned things around and got back on level terms minutes after Korean goal. That draw leave Korea with no margin for error and one would think they need all three points to get through from this group.
