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.
