WORLD CUP 2014: KIM BO AND SOUTH KOREA OUT

27 June 2014

City midfielder makes second appearance in Belgium defeat

Kim Bo Kyung and South Korea exited the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil on Thursday as a final game defeat to Belgium saw them finish bottom of group H.

Facing the tough task of beating the group leaders comprehensively to have a chance to progress, Jan Vertonghen’s 77th minute strike was enough to make it three wins out of three for the Belgians and ultimately consign Hong Myung-bo’s side to an early exit from Brazil.

City midfielder Kim Bo Kyung did make his second appearance of the tournament however, replacing Shin-Wook Kim as a 66th minute substitute to play the final 25 minutes in Sao Paolo.

In the end it was Algeria who progressed as runners-up from group H following a 1-1 draw with Russia. 

Cardiff City World Cup focus now turns to Gary Medel and Chile who take on hosts Brazil in Belo Horizonte on Saturday, kick-off 5pm.
