Description
22 June 2010 South Korea 2 Nigeria 2 Durban Stadium, Durban South Korea, sensational semi-finalists when they co-hosted the 2002 FIFA World Cup, had never progressed beyond the group stages in six previous attempts away from home. All that was about to change. The Thunder, South Korea's Chuyoung Park, stepped up in the 49th minute to curl home a stunning free-kick. This set them on their way to a 2-2 draw with Nigeria; a result good enough to see the Koreans through to the last 16. Park's ferocious free-kick is the 17th painting in the Live Quest series and has been realised by Espoir Vyizigiro Kennedy and Paul Junior Kasemwana.
