US Pulls Out a Tie Against Korea

In a game clearly dominated by the Koreans, US goalie Friedel comes up with monstrous saves to preserve a tie.

Ahn Jung Hwan’s second-half header cancelled out a slick Clint Mathis strike as the Group D upstarts split the points in the red cauldron of Daegu, Korea. The home side very easily could have won the match as they not only had a Eul Yong Lee penalty saved by Brad Friedel, but they created far and away the greater number of chances.

You can say that again! The US will have to be sharper against Poland if they want to advance to the next round!
