What happened in the race?
New Zealand starts on the right foot in Group B. Danny High’s national team beat South Korea 1-0 thanks to a 70th-minute goal by Chris Wood, the team’s veteran and Burnley striker in the Premier League. Former West Ham defender Winston Reed played a vital role in keeping the net clean. Both teams will return to the field on Sunday for a second day. South Korea really did very little to intimidate New Zealand, who instead knew how to suffer and appeared in top physical and psychological condition. Romania also broke the three points of the second group. Now it remains to be seen whether South Korea will respond or surrender to its opponents but it is too early to surrender.
Reti: 70 wood
Yellow cards: 78 Lewis (New Zealand).
