PORTO ALEGRE, Brazil, June 22 (Reuters) - Algeria led South
Korea 3-0 at halftime after totally dominating a World Cup Group
H match on Sunday in which they also spurned several chances.
Algeria took the lead in the 26th minute when striker Islam
Slimani ran on to a long upfield pass and held off two Korean
defenders before guiding the ball past onrushing goalkeeper Jung
The North Africans doubled their lead just two minutes later
when Rafik Halliche headed home a corner from Abdelmoume Djabou
and added a third in the 38th minute when a Slimani pass found
Djabou inside the box and the attacking midfielder swept a left-
foot shot into the corner of the net.
