South Korean coach Huh Jung-Moo said the 2-0 victory over Greece was just a beginning for his team.

"The first game of any tournament is difficult, but my players really played very well, so I am very grateful.

"But we are just at the beginning now. We have more matches to play and we have to prepare for those games just as well." Huh said.

Greece boss Otto Rehhagel admitted that his team had been second-best on the day. He said: "We were unlucky in a couple of situations towards the end of the match, but it was a deserved victory for South Korea."

South Korea skipper Park Ji-Sung said his team were now focused on causing an upset in their next match against group favourites Argentina on June 17.

Park said: "Argentina is, of course, the strongest team in our group and people are saying they could make the final. They have a lot of top international players.

"Before the World Cup, we played a friendly against Spain and we thought about Argentina as we were playing that game.

"Of course, there is a lot of difference between the two teams, but the unexpected can happen in this World Cup, and that is what we are looking to do."
