LONDON, England — Busan IPark keeper Lee Bum-young's save of Daniel Sturridge's penalty kick lifted Korea to a 2-1 upset over favored Great Britain. The 23-year-old was a mid-game substitute for keeper Jung Sung-ryong in the second half, who sustained an injury.

Celtic's Ki Seung-yung netted his attempt after Lee's huge save to help Korea advance to a semifinal battle with Brazil, to be played at Old Trafford in Manchester.

Ji Dong-won opened the scoring in the 29th minute before Aaron Ramsey equalized on a penalty kick in the 36th.
