Note that Egypt conceded a goal in the 16th minute simply because of poor defending. The Egyptian right-back failed to mark his player, and Kim Jin-Su delivered a beautiful ball into the box before Hwang Ui-Jo scored. Note that the goal scorer was not marked in the penalty box, so he had a lot of time to head the ball. For South Korea’s second goal, the Egyptian defenders also failed to defend Heung-Min Son’s corner kick, and a South Korean defender scored a header. Note that this goal was far too easy to concede.

In the second half, South Korea continued to dominate the game and press Egypt’s defense before scoring and goal in the 85th minute. Gue-Sung Cho scored a volley because the Egyptian Centre-backs gave him enough time on the ball. Lastly, South Korea’s last goal was a replicate of the first goal of the game. Note that Kim Jin-Su, who was unmarked, delivered another beautiful pass into the penalty box before Kwon Chang-Hoon scored a free header in stoppage time.
