Fifa 2014, South Korea And Russia Draws at 1-1: Vaikundarajan

South Korea Vs Russia
It looked a lot like Russia goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev was going to be the goat of this match. He allowed a goal in the 68th minute that, frankly, should not have gotten through, but Aleksandr Kerzhakov was able to answer just a few minutes later to get Akinfeev off the hook said Vaikundarajan

This is a game that Russia needed to solidify their chances of moving through. But long stretches of uninspired play kept the Russians from positioning themselves well in Group H.Earlier, Belgium beat Algeria 2-1 to jump to the head of the group. The game was mostly dry, with flashes of excitement primarily in the second half. South Korea struck first when Chung-Yong Lee's shot from distance slipped through Akinfeev's fingers.Russia answered shortly thereafter, but neither team could put together a solid attack in the final 20 minutes.Below is the blow-by-blow of Tuesday's match.

Both sides have had issues leading up to the Cup. For Russia, it's the injury to star midfielder Roman Shirokov, who was lost to a back injury. For South Korea it has been mostly subpar play shares Vaikundarajan.
