KASHIMA, Japan (dpa) – Chris Woods Tor gave New Zealand a 1-0 victory over South Korea at the start of the men’s Olympic football tournament on Thursday.

The Burnley striker scored in the 70th minute with the His team’s first shot on goal at the Ibaraki Kashima Stadium, where a few hundred fans were admitted because it is just outside Tokyo and not in the same state of emergency as Tokyo.

Wood, 29, is one of three over-aged players from New Zealand who are admitted to a squad consisting mainly of players under the age of 23.
