South Korea beat Greece [2-0]

South Korea vs Greece


Lee Jung-soo and Park Ji-sung scored to lift South Korea to a 2-0 victory over Greece Saturday in Port Elizabeth, South Africa, in Group B action from the World Cup.


This was a must-win game for both sides because their toughest matches, against Argentina and Nigeria, lie ahead in Group B. South Korea did very well to earn three points on Saturday, as a win in their final two games will likely propel them through to the second round.


As for Greece, they are in big trouble. With zero points, they can’t afford any more losses (and that will be tough, as their final match is against Argentina) and they must take at least four points from their last two matches. Considering the Greeks still haven’t scored a World Cup goal, don’t bet on that happening.

Shakira-Hips Don’t Lie-FIFA World Cup 2010

This year, FIFA World Cup will have an extraordinary feat with players and audience enjoying a “2-day opening” that would start on Thursday night. Tonight, witness the biggest pop extravaganza in the continent’s history with 1,581 performers across the globe. Shakira will perform the official 2010 World Cup song, “Waka Waka This Time for Africa”. She will team up with a local South African group, Freshlyground, to sway the spectators with a heart-throbbing performance.

Also, rocking the stage in the grand ceremony will be distinguished artists, John Legend, Alicia Keys, the Black Eyed Peas, and Colombian heart-throb rocker Juanes. Top African musicians such as Amadou and Mariam, The Parlotones and Angelique Kidjo, will also be performing. Best part of the Thursday night concert is that the profit earned will be donated to “20 Centers for 2010”, a charity campaign dedicated to enhancing public health, education and development across Africa. FIFA opted to keep the Friday’s actual opening ceremony, before the game between the hosts and Mexico, performances somewhat a secret. This is mainly done to sustain the pinnacle of expectations and excitement!
