World Cup Archives: South Korea's Golden moment

"Has ever a goal been more golden?" asks Peter Drury? Well, maybe, but this one was pretty special.

Underdogs South Korea took Italy to extra-time after it finished 1-1 in the 90 minutes -then Ahn Jung-hwan popped up to score a golden goal and take the hosts into the quarter-finals.

The striker played for Italian club Perugia at the time and owner Luciano Gaucci cancelled his contract after he dumped Italy out.

Gaucci was quoted as saying he had "no intention of paying a salary to someone who has ruined Italian football".
