South Korea and Uruguay have played another goalless draw in this World Cup. This game could definitely be called the worst in the tournament. If not for the Korean fans. More precisely, a small island outside the gate on the lower tier, where about 100 people gathered. which formed behind the gate on the lower tier.

At the beginning of the game, they pounded the drums and fell silent only during the break: they sanded chants in both English and Korean. One of the charges was very reminiscent of the charge of Spartak fans, so at some point you could feel like you were at a match in your native RPL. The level of football was definitely not better.

“Football for Korea is everything, it is our slice of life,” said Kwon, one of the fans. “We will never scold our players, they are the best for us.”

These words were perfectly illustrated by a moment in the first half, when one of the South Korean attackers missed the goal from the best position. The Koreans not only did not scold him, but on the contrary showed him the thumbs up and applauded. They also shouted out the name of every player who came on as a substitute.

Asian fans will definitely compete at this World Cup with Arab and African fans in terms of how to support their team. But after the surprise yesterday, the Japanese, and how the Koreans were sick today, I will definitely vote for Asia. At least for the fact that today they slept a dull match.
