South Korea, Turkey advance

The Associated Press

        GWANGJU, South Korea — South Korea kept its improbable World Cup run alive Saturday, upsetting Spain 5-3 in a penalty-kick shootout after a 0-0 tie to become the first Asian nation ever to reach the semifinals.

        Hong Myung-bo scored the game-winner after goalkeeper Lee Woon-jae saved a penalty by Joaquin Sanchez.

        South Korea, which hadn't won a game at five previous trips to the World Cup, set up a showdown with Germany.

        The Germans beat the United States 1-0 on Friday to move into Tuesday's semifinal in Seoul, the South Korean capital.

        It was a bitter loss for Spain, in its 11th World Cup. The team had several excellent scoring opportunities late in the game, hitting the post on one and having a goal disallowed on a questionable call by the linesman, who said the ball had crossed the end line.

        Turkey 1, Senegal 0, OT

        OSAKA, Japan — Turkey had to work overtime to get exactly what it has been asking for: a World Cup semifinal rematch with Brazil.

        Substitute Ilhan Mansiz deflected a perfect cross by Umit Davala four minutes into the extra session, lifting one of the longest shots from Europe past surprising Senegal.

        Three weeks ago, the four-time champions edged the Turks 2-1 on a late, controversial penalty kick.

        Now, the Turks, who dominated the match with the Africans, get another shot at the South Americans.

        Turkey had the advantage nearly the entire night against a Senegal team that made a strong impression in its first World Cup appearance. The team that beat France in the tournament's opener, but looked tired against the Turks.
