Ahn Jung-Hwan knocks Italy out in 2002 in an 'affront to Italian pride'
South Korea's run to the 2002 World Cup semi-finals was remarkable.
Along the way they disposed of Portugal, Italy and Spain and it was the match against the Italians that caught the most attention.
The hosts beat Italy thanks to a Golden Goal from Ahn Jung-Hwan, who at the time was plying his trade at Perugia.
Soon after the game, the president of his club came out and said "That gentleman will never set foot in Perugia again. He was a phenomenon only when he played against Italy. I am a nationalist and I regard such behaviour not only as an affront to Italian pride but also an offence to a country which two years ago opened its doors to him. I have no intention of paying a salary to someone who has ruined Italian soccer."
And indeed, Jung-Hwan never played for the club again.
