June 17, 2010 - South Africa - Football - Greece v Nigeria FIFA World Cup South Africa 2010 - Group B - Free State Stadium, Bloemfontein, South Africa - 17/6/10..A Nigeria fan.

Nigeria could be without a recognised left-back for Tuesday’s game. Taye Taiwo is doubtful with a groin injury and deputy Uwa Echiejile is also struggling.
If both defenders are unavailable, coach Lars Lagerback may have to reshuffle his defence. Midfielder Sani Kaita is suspended following his sending off against Greece.
South Korea are expected to again opt for a 4-2-3-1 formation. Monaco’s Park Chu-young will start as a lone striker, with Manchester United’s Park Ji-sung providing support from midfield.
One booking from suspension: Haruna, Obasi Ogbuke (Nigeria); Yeom Ki-hun, Lee Chung-yong (South Korea) (BBC Sport)

Nigeria may well have been a far better situation had Sani Kaita not acted crazily against Greece. Lars Lagerbeck’s side were cruising against the Greeks before Kaita kicked out at Vasileios Torosidis earning a red card and handing the impetus to the opposition who then came back from behind to win.

Luckily they do have another shot, if they can overcome South Korea and results go their way in the other group match then they can indeed make it to the knock out stages. Huh Jung-moo’s side will also be confident of progression having done well to beat Greece in their first match and were also decent for periods of their Argentine clash.
