Henry finally gets a goal, on a shot that he could hardly avoid making. Let’s hope that opens the flood gates for him. Yellow to Korean player, Ho, thereafter. Good call.
1-0 at half time with France getting most of the chances. Seems weird to me that they’ve had Zidane up top with Henry. Maybe they’ve been trying to save him to play more of a midfielder role in the second half. He’s much better there, anyway.
Korea unlucky to be down at this point. They’ve played relatively well and the entry pass on Henry’s goal was a flukey deflection. I hope they come out with high energy in the second half.
After mounting pressure and several good chances, Korea scores in the 36th minute of the second half. 1-1.
Zidane lays a great ball into Henry who reverts to normalcy and chokes a 1v1 with the keeper. Zidane is given a yellow on a really lame call just after. (Is he out for the next game?)
Action in the final 10 minutes has been back and forth.
Bartez just about tosses the game away, but recovers. Henry goes offside for a header. Still don’t like his game.
Final 1-1. Korea’s got to like that.
