[WORLD CUP 2014 FRIENDLIES] South Korea's send-off match did not turn out well, so poorly in fact that Coach Hong Myung-Bo had to apologize afterward for the 1-0 loss to Tunisia in front of more than 50,000 fans in Seoul.

Tunisia won thanks to a first-half goal by Zouheir Dhaouadi.

“We tried hard but the result is not as good as we expected,” the former LA Galaxy defender said. "We are sorry to our fans but I am sure today’s match will turn out to be a good lesson. Today’s focus was to check on our defense but it was not good. How we lost the goal to Tunisia was bad.”

To make matters worse, South Korea had Augsburg defender Hong Jeong-Ho was carried off with what was described as a bruised ankle.

South Korea will head to Florida on Friday to continue its World Cup preparations.

MEXICO-ISRAEL. Mexico beat Israel, 3-0, at Azteca Stadium in a match marred by a head injury to goalkeeper Jesus Corona, who was taken to hospital after he collided with teammate Francisco Rodriguez in the 69th minute.

Miguel Layun scored twice for El Tri and Marco Fabian added the third goal. The game was a farewell match for 41-year-old Cuauhtemoc Blanco making his 120th international appearance.

NIGERIA-SCOTLAND. Substitute Uche Nwofor's goal in the 90th minute earned Nigeria a 2-2 tie with Scotland at Craven Cottage in London. The Scots had twice led, the second time on an own goal by Azubuike Egwuekwe.
