Sep. 20, 2000
ADELAIDE, Australia (AP) _ Lee Don-gook scored in the first half Wednesday to give South Korea a 1-0 victory over Chile, but the South Americans still made the quarterfinals of the Olympic soccer tournament.
Chile finished first in Group B with six points and will meet Nigeria on Saturday in the second round. Spain, which defeated Morocco 2-0, placed second in the group and will play Italy.
Lee Dong-gook scored in the 27th minute with a shot from 15 yards on a rebound off Chilean defender Pedro Reyes.
South Korea played with 10 men from the second minute after Slovak referee Lubos Michel ejected Lee Chun-soo fur fouling striker Sebastian Gonzalez.
After the goal Chile, playing without veteran striker Ivan Zamorano, dominated the action, creating _ and missing _ several scoring opportunities and restricting the Koreans mostly to sporadic counterattacks.
The Korean defense successfuly stopped a number of Chilean attacks. Reinaldo Navia, Rodrigo Tello and Francisco Arrue missed good scoring opportunities.
