MELBOURNE, Australia - South Korea reached the Asian Cup semifinals after Son Heung-min scored two goals in extra time in a tough 2-0 win over Uzbekistan.Kim Jin-sus long centring pass from just outside the area was deflected by the Uzbekistan defence and into the path of Son, who headed the ball past diving goalkeeper Ignatiy Nesterov 16 minutes into extra time.After more than 120 minutes of an intense match, substitute defender Cha Du-ri beat two Uzbek defenders as he dribbled the ball toward the area before passing to Son, who calmly drove it into the net.South Korea, which reached the quarterfinals after topping its group, will next face the winner of the Iran vs. Iraq quarterfinal played Friday in Canberra.We knew that the team that loses today, tomorrow is on a plane back to his home country, South Korea coach Uli Stielike said. So hence, for us if we dont go through the semifinals, for sure well have a lot of critics at home.I think that pressure was our main problem in the first half, the former West Germany international added. When we came out in the second half we were much calmer, there were much less unforced errors ... and I think from 91 minutes on, there was only one team on the pitch.Both sides focused on attack in an evenly matched game in front of a raucous sellout crowd of over 25,000 at Melbournes Rectangular stadium.It was a very interesting and beautiful game, Uzbekistan coach Uzbek boss Mirjalol Qosimov said. Because of how unlucky we are, we are very disappointed.We could have scored many, many goals but luck was not on our side, he added.Nesterov produced some inspired goalkeeping in the first half as the South Koreans missed four clear chances in the space of two minutes. After blocking a close-range shot by Nam Tae-hee in the 26th, Nesterov raced back into goal and leapt to tip a Son strike over the bar.Ki Sung-yueng came close again a minute later when his shot from inside the box drifted too far right, and again in the 27th when his shot narrowly missed its target.Tonight we saw a lot of different phases in 120 minutes. ... Our main objective was to bring the mentality and the conviction which we played against Australia to this game, Stielike said. But one more time we saw in the first half that we had a lot of mental problems when we play under a lot of pressure.The second half featured a series of squandered chances, punctuated by three missed opportunities from Uzbekistan midfielder Lutfulla Turaev — including an off target header at an empty goal in the 78th.South Korean defender Kwak Tae-hwi came close in the 82nd with a header from inside the box that narrowly missed the goal.The intensity remained throughout extra time with both teams probing each others goal area to no avail until Kim and Son combined to force a rare lapse in the Uzbek defence.

Nicholson made the comments Wednesday after announcing the 2014 recipients of the Order of Hockey in Canada. "Our contingency plan would be everyone around this room today," he said while speaking to reporters at Rogers Arena. "We have none." NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly said in an email this week the league would re-evaluate going to Sochi "if something significant were to transpire" before Feb. 9. Thats the date players are scheduled to leave for Russia. Daly added in the email he didnt "expect that that will become necessary." Nicholson said there has been no contact with Canadian amateur or European-based players in the event the NHL did decide against participating in Sochi. The threat of terrorism has been top of mind recently after two suicide bombers struck the city of Volgograd in late December, killing 34 people. An Islamic militant group in Dagestan -- which is located about 500 kilometres from Sochi -- claimed responsibility for those attacks and has also threatened to strike at the Games. Nicholson said his organization has been working with the federal government and Canadian Olympic Committee on security. "We have people on the ground in Sochi. They feel it is very safe right now and we just want to make sure it stays that way," said Nicholson. "This is something that isnt new to the Olympics.dddddddddddd "Certainly the location here heightens it but we feel comfortable." Vancouver Canucks goaltender Roberto Luongo said last week he wont be bringing any family members with him to Sochi, mainly because of safety. "Its definitely on my mind, Im not going to lie," Luongo said. "I think were all a little bit concerned." Nicholson said Hockey Canada has a blueprint for what it will do in the event of a terrorist attack at the Games. "We have a detailed plan with how well deal with all of the players and all of the family members that go if something happens," he said. In terms of the actual team set to go to Sochi, Nicholson said he was encouraged to see star Tampa Bay Lightning forward Steven Stamkos back practising. The 23-year-old was named to the Canadian squad despite breaking his leg in November. "We really want to make sure he is fully recovered from this," said Nicholson, who added there is a list of five-to-eight players on standby in case of injury. "The Olympic Games are huge for Steve, its huge for Canada but we have to make sure its the right thing for Steve Stamkos long-term." Nicholson didnt say whether Stamkos needed to play an NHL game before the Olympics, simply stating: "Theres going to be a drop-dead date ... really that date is 24 hours before the first mens game in Sochi." The mens Olympic hockey tournament begins Feb. 12, with Canadas first game set for the following day against Norway. ' ' '
