The 2002 FIFA World Cup was shared by hosts South Korea and Japan, with Yokohama’s International Stadium hosting the final match between Brazil and Germany to decide the best football team in the world. Brazil, who knocked off Turkey 1-0 in the semis, defeated a strong German team, 2-0, in the Finals thanks to a brace from Ronaldo. South Korea finished fourth after losing to Turkey in the third place game, but the proud Asian country became the first outside of Europe and the Americas to reach the final four of a World Cup.
