I called my flatmate to share the news with her, and as I had gone two days without sleep by that point my internal clock was screwed up to the point where it felt much later than seven o'clock in the morning. After she answered the phone I felt rather guilty for calling when I did, but the hail had already woken her up and she seemed happy to receive an update on how Korea had equalized through a 54' strike from Lee Chun Soo. Once again I left for work with ten minutes left on the clock, but Ahn Jung Hwan's volley at 72' was enough to earn Korea their first victory outside Asia in the World Cup. Full time, South Korea 2:1 Togo.
Surprise, surprise. After last evening's results Australia are at the top of Group F ahead of Brazil, Croatia, and Japan. Who would have predicted that at the beginning of the week? Congratulations to the Socceroos!
