Russia and Korea draw 1-1 after goalie errors

Russia goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev fails to save the 0-1 goal during the Group H football match between Russia and South Korea.

Russia's Alexander Kerzhakov came to the rescue, scoring three minutes after coming on as a substitute to secure a 1-1 World Cup draw with South Korea after his goalkeeper had gifted the Asians the lead in their Group H match today.

Horrified Igor Akinfeev allowed a straightforward Lee Keun-ho shot from 25 metres to slip through his fingers after 68 minutes of the final match of the tournament's opening round of fixtures.

Neither team had looked dangerous until that point, but the goal shook Russia into life and Kerzhakov pounced after more scrappy goalkeeping by Jung Sung-ryong in the 74th minute.

The result leaves the teams with a point apiece, two behind group leaders Belgium, who came from behind to beat Algeria 2-1 earlier on today.
