Port Elizabeth: It was goals all the way for Asia as Jung-Soo Lee (7th minute) and Ji-Sung Park (52nd minute) started South Korea’s World Cup charge with full fervour.

The dynamic duo gave South Korea a dream start with a solid 2-0 victory over Greece, the first match of the World Cup 2010 to get a result after the two draws yesterday.

Yntra gave the ball away cheaply in the 52nd minute and Park Ji-Sung sprinted past two defenders and slided the ball past Tzorvas to give South Korea a two-goal lead.

The body language of the Greek players was very telling as they looked like they had already conceded defeat after the second goal materialised.

Selfish play was evident in the 75th minute as Torosidis tried to beat his marker in the six yard box instead of playing the ball across to two of his waiting team-mates. That pretty much summed up Greece`s afternoon.
