Korean fan dead

SEOUL: A South Korean soccer fan died of a suspected heart attack on Saturday while watching the country play a crucial World Cup match against Switzerland at a massive, pre-dawn street rally in Seoul, police said. The 25-year-old college student, identified only by

his surname, Kim, collapsed abruptly while watching the country’s last game on large outdoor screens in downtown Seoul, said an officer at the Namdaemun Police Station. Kim was taken immediately to hospital, but died, the officer said. Kim was among more than

100,000 red-clad fans gathered in front of Seoul City Hall.

Agressive Eriksson

BADEN-BADEN: Sven-Goran Eriksson is finally getting angry. Well, sort of. “The aggression has been a little bit surprising,” England defender John Terry said. “I am not talking about shouting and screaming. He is never going to knock tables over and scream in your face. He is not that kind of manager but he has certainly been raising his voice a lot more.” Terry said Eriksson was particularly upset at England’s 2-2 draw with Sweden on Tuesday. “He was pretty heat up and disappointed after the game the other night,” Terry said.

Go Ronaldo

BERLIN: David Beckham is glad Ronaldo has proved critics wrong with his two goals in Brazil’s 4-1 win over Japan. The England captain - no stranger to criticism himself - says his Real Madrid teammate has been harshly judged over his fitness and weight. “I think some of the things that have been said about Roni are wrong,” Beckham said. “It’s not the criticism of him as a player, it’s the personal criticism of him about his shape and things like that. I’m glad he showed people what he’s all about.”
