FIFA World Cup 2014: Russia vs South Korea 16th Match in Pictures

South Korea and Russia played a tepid 1-1 tie in Group H in Cuiaba on Tuesday night. The result left the teams with a point apiece in the standings.

After nearly 70 minutes, Russia and South Korea appeared to be heading to a scoreless draw. Thanks to two goalkeeping errors, both teams scored late goals to cap off a rather dull match with an exciting ending.  Lee Keun-Ho gave South Korea the lead in the 68th minute, but Aleksandr Kerzhakov equalized six minutes later to give us our final score of 1-1.
