Turkey, S.Korea draw 0-0 in friendly game

The friendly match between Turkish and South Korean national teams on Wednesday ended 0-0 in the northern Turkish province of Trabzon.

Turkey enjoyed the majority of possession throughout the game, while Asian Cup semifinalist South Korea looked to play on the counter attack.

It was a poignant match for Turkey's Dutch coach Guus Hiddink, who was in charge of South Korea in 2002 when Turkey beat them 3-2 to clinch third place in the World Cup.

His side made a strong start with Umut Bulut going close to putting Turkey ahead in the sixth minute when his close range header was saved by South Korea keeper Jung Sung-ryong.

Six minutes later Hamit Altintop fired in a long range shot which the keeper knocked wide of the post.

Despite being a man short Turkey sprang back into life in the final 10 minutes when a header from Colin Kazim forced a good save from Jung.
