Rio 2016: S. Korea wins first group football match against Fiji


The highly-anticipated 2016 Rio Olympics will
kick off with a grand opening ceremony on Friday evening, local time. Some ten-and-a-half thousand athletes from
more than two-hundred nations are set to compete at this year’s games,… which are being held
in Latin America for the first time. And with the ceremony less than 24 hours away,…
the men’s football got underway today with eight group games. Korea put eight goals past Fiji in their first
group game,… which finished around 15 minutes ago. The Korean team scored SEVEN times in the
second half to easily beat the Pacific island nation. In the same group,… Germany and Mexico played
out a TWO-TWO draw earlier in the day. The host nation Brazil got off to a disappointing
start with a goalless draw against South Africa. South Korea’s next match will be against Germany
on Monday morning at 4 a.m. GMT.,… that’s noon on Monday, Korea time.
