What’s the saying, Sunday is unofficially “heart attack day” for football fans world over?  It was nearly the case for yours truly, so much on the line, so close to Korea magically defeating Germany 3-2, all to come crashing back to terra firma in less than 2 minutes of stoppage time. But a draw with Germany, by all non-romantic means of looking at it, isn’t too shabby. Let’s forget for a hot moment Korea should have won on Sunday – a draw with Germany is, on paper, respectable. But the task ahead is clear –bottom line for Korea it’s win or draw with Mexico on Wednesday (Thurs AM in Korea) to advance from Group C and keep alive dreams of a medal and that magical exemption that comes with it to unfetter another generation of Koreans from compulsory military service.  No rest day for Wednesday’s fixture. Let’s break down the scenario for Korea to advance onward, starting with deconstructing El Tri.

Read Roy Ghim's full preview on the home page! (As always, it's excellent haha)

Score prediction guys? Can we pull this one off? Discuss 😀

I called 2-0 in the podcast but I'm an idiot... 2-1 sounds better. I'm nervous about the team screwing up in defense though... First goal is crucial. Son and Ryu goals 🙂

Kickoff Wednesday 3PM US EST / Thursday 4AM Korea Time

TV US: MSNBC

TV CANADA: CBC App

TV KOREA: KBS2 and SBS and MBC

it was so frustrating to watch.. despite the win, i think Shin taeyong told them to play for a draw. I am 100% sure of it.

Kwon with that goal, though..
