Red Card For Korean English

The Asahi.com site carried an article pointing out some English problems amidst Korea's otherwise well-organized World Cup efforts. Examples include the caption "An efforts to advance the preliminary match" under a photo of a local striker, and "Players are keen to catch ball during the match between Korea and Brazil teams" to describe two players in an aerial battle. Spelling mistakes abound too, such as Horoshima and the Epel Tower. At least they've stopped calling the world's most famous player Pepe.
