Well, I watched the game against Uruguay, but it was on time delay, so I don't think my jinx would come into play. By the time I saw Korea Republic tie it up, 1-1, I think Uruguay had already gotten their second goal, which propelled them into the quarterfinals.
Two points about that: first, it wouldn't be just KoKos complaining about that, lest anyone talk about uniquely Korean sour grapes; and second, that while there are many countries in the WC complaining about the flighty nature of the ball, it is mostly teams and their fans after a loss.
Now, per this conversation, what will KoKo fans do vis-à-vis Japan's match. With my theory being that most South Koreans either are indifferent to Japan's success or would like to see them do well as long as they don't do as well or better than Korea, it will be interesting to see how KoKos will react if Japan actually wins against Paraguay. My guess is that KoJa is no match for the Guays.
