4-1 to south korea it finished then, I must point that was not the side we would normaly play it was full of 1st caps but we were ripped apart and South Korea played well. It was still embarassing though and the less we speak of it the better.

REPORT South Korea 4 Scotland 1

Thursday 16th May 2002

South Korea sent a warning shot to Group D rivals Poland, USA and Portugal on Thursday in Busan by hammering Scotland who crashed to their third straight defeat under new coach Berti Vogts.

Vogts gave Scott Dobie and Maurice Ross their international debuts while Hibernian youngster Garry O'Connor, Preston right-back Graham Alexander and Manchester United midfielder Michael Stewart started for the first time.

And the new-look Scotland side were soon on the back foot.

Hwan Sun-hong and Park Ji-sung both wasted chances for South Korea early on, but the breakthrough was not long in coming, Korea duly taking the lead on 14 minutes when Lee Chun-soo raced onto a long through ball and rounded keeper Neil Sullivan before rolling the ball home.

Hwang Sun-hong should have doubled his side's advantage mid-way through the half, but he scooped the ball over the bar after collecting Chun's cross.

Scotland offered little up front and it was again South Korea who pressed forwards after the break.

Yoo Sang-chul saw his shot saved by Sullivan, but Perugia striker Ahn Jung-hwan, on for Hwang Sun-hong, doubled Korea's advantage on 58 minutes when he fired past Sullivan from the edge of the box.

Five minutes later it was another substitute, Yoon Jong-hwan, who made sure of the victory by rifling an another shot from distance past Sullivan.

West Brom striker Dobie finally gave Vogts something to cheer when he pulled one back for Scotland with 17 minutes to go, but Korea restored their three-goal margin soon after, Ahn Jung-hwan chipping delightfully over Sullivan after a neat exchange of passes on the edge of the area to complete the rout.

South Korea: Kim Byung-ji, Hong Myung-bo (Yoon Jong-hwan 65), Yoo Sang-chul, Choi Jin-Chul (Lee Min-sung 46), Kim Tae-young, Song Chong-gug, Lee Eul-yong, Park Ji-sung (Choi Tae-uk 73), Lee Young-pyo, Lee Chun-soo (Cha Doo-ri 73), Hwang Sun-hong (Ahn Jung-hwan 46)

Scotland: Sullivan, Alexander (Stockdale 62), Dailly, Weir, Ross, Caldwell, Gemmill, Stewart (Williams 46), Johnston (Kyle 66), Dobie, O'Connor (Severin, 46)

Tomorrow they are to play South Africa, although there is a monsoon and the game could be in doubt. A Honk Kong XI is to be there last game and that is on Thursday. Most of the players that are playing on the tour might not play for Scotland again so they are really playing for there International futures.
