Belarus participated even though it has not qualified for the 2010 World Cup and after a defeat before Armenia. South Korea appeared after a four game winning streak against fellow FIFA World Cup competitors such as Japan and the Ivory Coast.
The game itself was played in the FC Kurfstein Stadion Stadium before an audience of 1000 people. The game almost had no highlights except for the first only goal by Sergei Kisliak.
During the first half; Dmitry Molosh, Alexander Martinovich, and Sergey Kornilenko of Belarus received yellow cards for unsportsmanlike behavior while Ki Sung-Yueng was the only South Korean to receive one.
Both teams had substitutions which made little difference in the results such as Andrei Voronkov for Vitaly Rodionov for Belarus as well as Lee Jung-Soo for Kwak Tae-Hwi and Seungyoul Lee for Chu-Young Park in the South Korean Team.
According to the FIFA Coca Cola World Ranking as of May 2010, South Korea is in 47th place with 632 points while Belarus is 82nd place with 397 points. South Korea could have been bolder but again this appeared to be a game of attrition between a team that was not in the World Cup and one that needs to recuperate its loss.
The next game for South Korea will be against Spain and this is going to be an interesting one.
