2002 World Cup -- Road to The Final Spain's Penalty Pain Again

Spain vs South Korea
Gwangju --  (0-0 aet)
South Korea win 5-3 on penalties.

Hosts South Korea have already claimed the scalps of Portugal and Italy as they sought to defeat a third European nation.

The Koreans made plenty of early use of the backpass to goalkeeper Lee Woon-Jae, while the home crowd tried to encourage them to press the Spaniards more with their relentless chanting.

With twenty minutes gone, neither goalkeeper had been tested by their opponents..... but in the 24th minute Lee had to punch out a Francisco De Pedro free-kick from the right side of the area.

Two minutes later, Lee Woon-Jae held onto a Fernando Morientes header and was grateful that his left post stopped him from falling over the line with the ball.

Just after the half-hour Hierro headed onto the roof of the net, from a corner, as Spain started to have more of the chances.

Five minutes before the break, Morientes missed a golden opportunity to slip on a right-wing cross from Joaquin Sanchez that goalkeeper Lee failed to cut out. And Spain continued to look the side most likely to score right up to half-time.

Half-time: Spain 0 -- South Korea 0

Four minutes after the restart and a Spanish goal was disallowed. Hard to see why; unless you believe in conspiracy theories.

South Korea started to pass the ball around and trouble the Spaniards; Iker Casillas keeping out a close-range drive from Park Ji-Sung, in the 66th minute.

Spain had two days more rest than South Korea but the Europeans started to tire before the Asians as the game went into extra-time; with the game remaining goalless after 90 minutes.

Extra-Time:

South Korea won against Italy in extra-time and Spain managed to beat Ireland on penalties.... thanks largely to Casillas.

Spain had another goal disallowed, when the linesman judged (falsely) that the ball had gone out of play -- before Morientes planted the header.

In the 100th minute, Morientes turned on a long throw and crashed his shot against the left post.... a shot worthy of the golden goal.

Neither side managed to break the other down and score a golden goal.
