Uzbekistan Vs North Korea - AFC Group B Match
Group B Match Uzbekistan vs North Korea
Uzbekistan kicked off the 2015 AFC Asian Cup campaign with a 1-0 victory over North Korea. Igor Sergeev headed in the only goal after 62minutes during a rain-sodden second half to give Uzbekistan a 1-0 win over North Korea in the opening Group B match at the Asian Cup. Uzbekistan was the dominant side throughout, and despite the rainstorm that swirled around Stadium Australia, it created a host of chances."The first game is always tough and there was a little bit of pressure before the game'" said Uzbekistan coach Mirdjalal Kasimov.
