Korea DPR and Côte d'Ivoire will bring their Group G campaigns to an end hoping for vastly different rewards, with the former aiming to bid the 2010 FIFA World Cup™ farewell with a pride-inducing win and the latter eyeing a miracle qualification for the knockout stage. Mbombela Stadium in Nelspruit will be the venue as the Elephants attempt to record the thumping victory they require to have any chance of reaching the last 16, with Sven Goran Eriksson’s men also needing already-qualified Brazil to defeat Portugal elsewhere in the section. Their exit assured, meanwhile, the challenge for Korea DPR will be to salvage their honour and bow out of their first FIFA World Cup finals since 1966 on a positive note. Côte d’Ivoire fans were plunged into despair when star striker Drogba fractured his arm a few days before the action got started, but the legend in his homeland defied injury to take part in the festivities. His contributions have been noteworthy so far and it was he who reduced the deficit against Brazil with his team’s only goal in two games. The Chelsea predator also found the net for the Elephants at the 2006 FIFA World Cup, making him the player an entire country will be looking to in the hunt for goals. As for Korea DPR, it was their ironclad defence that guided them to South Africa and they kept a string of clean sheets until the final round of qualifiers. Boasting an excellent ability to read the game and organise his partners, Ji has emerged as a leader at the heart of that rearguard and will thus shoulder the lion’s share of the responsibility for keeping Drogba quiet.
