South Korea suffer setback to Belarus

WORLD CUP: South Korea's preparations for South Africa were jolted as they slumped to a 1-0 defeat against non-qualifiers Belarus.

The Koreans had looked in decent shape for their campaign after wins over Ecuador and Japan earlier this month.

However in Kufstein, Austria, they were unable to match a side which finished fourth in their European qualifying group, behind England, Ukraine and Croatia, Syarhey Kislyak scoring the only goal of the game in the 53rd minute.
