The Reds showed that they are no joke in today's South Korea vs. Greece World Cup match, which they easily won 2-0. Are you watching, Diego Maradona?

The final score was two to zero, but it easily could have been three or four to zero.
The Koreans were solid in the back, orderly at midfield, and inventive on the attack as they took it to the Greeks, heaping more disappointment on the beleaguered country.
The final whistle couldn’t come soon enough for Greece, as they were just hoping to avoid further embarrassment.
World-class striker Park Ji-sung showed why the Monitor picked him as one of our top players to watch in this World Cup when he gracefully wove through two defenders before chipping the ball past Greece’s goalkeeper for South Korea’s second goal.
It was a “lovely, delicate, classy finish” in the words of ESPN’s announcer.
