Nigeria’s Super Eagles 1, South Korea 2

The Super Eagles of Nigeria lost 1-2 to the South Korean football team in an International friendly played this afternoon at Suwon World Cup Stadium
Debutant Yoon Bitgaram and Choi Hyo-jin gave South Korea the two goals victory over Nigeria  this Wednesday.

The 20-year-old Yoon struck after just 17 minutes in the friendly match, a repeat of the 2010 World Cup group game which ended 2-2, eliminating Nigeria and sending South Korea into the round of 16.

Yoon was one of four players to make his South Korean debut under new coach Cho Kwang-rae and justified his inclusion when flicking the ball past a defender and smashing in a shot from just inside the area.

Peter Odemwingie headed an equalizer for Nigeria shortly after but four minutes before the break, Manchester United star Park Ji-sung slipped the ball through for Choi to fire the winning goal.
