South Korea destroy poor Poland

South Korea started their World Cup with a superb performance over a poor Polish side, which could not keep pace with their slick passing and relentless movement.

With a enthusiastic crowd behind them, South Korea took the lead through a great finish from Hwang Sun-hong, and doubled their advantage when Yoo Sung-c smashed the bell past Jerzy Dudek in the Poland goal.

After a decent start to the game, Poland became overrun by the Korean's efforts, and resorted to a dismal long ball game.

The Korean's then created chance after chance as their dream start became a reality.
