90+3'  The ref brings the game to an end with a blow of the whistle. It ends even with each side scoring three goals. The end of the match was quite dramatic, with two goals in the last six minutes. Probably a pretty fair result, all things considered. The South Koreans will be disappointed that they let their lead slip in the dying minutes, but they ought to be pleased with the result. Germany would've hoped for better. Having drawn both their games so far, they currently lie third in group C, ahead of only Fiji. South Korea and Mexico hold the top two spots in the group as of now.

...

90+2'  It's an equaliser for the Germans! Gnabry takes a direct shot. The ball takes a slight deflection off the wall, but that's enough to put it past the keeper's reach. Heartbreak for the Koreans. Relief for Germany.

...

90+2'  Free kick to Germany in a very threatening position. This is their chance for the equaliser.

...

90'  The referee has added three minutes of time to be played after the regulation 90.

...

89'  Sule picks up a booking for a silly challenge. The Germans are clearly frustrated, and are desperate to find an equaliser.

...

87'  Goal for Korea! Late drama as Suk puts the Koreans in the lead in the dying moments of the game. A defender misjudged the ball, and Suk didn't need a second invitation to shoot.

...

85'  German corner. The ball is put into the box, and the keeper punches it out. It falls to Julian Brandt, who tried a volleyed shot at goal, but it curled away from the goal.

...

83'  Germany make their first substitution of the game. Selke makes way for Petersen.

...

82'  Another substitution for the South Koreans as Ryu comes on for Kwon.

...

80'  Son takes a poke at goal from just inside the box, but it's a rather tame shot. Horn was never going to be troubled by that.

...

79'  Corner for Korea. The ball is whipped in, but the ref called a foul by South Korea, as Suk collided with Horn

...

75'  Substitution for South Korea. Moon makes way for Suk.

...

75'  Some good end to end, attacking football being played now. Both teams are hungry for the goal that will give them the lead.

...

72'  The Koreans are keeping the ball better now. Not so many cheap dispossessions and giveaways.

...

69'  Selke tries a shot from outside the box with his left boot, but doesn't work the keeper. It goes out wide.

...

68'  The dead ball is wasted, as the free kick is smashed into the wall of German defenders.

...

65'  Sven Bender concedes a free kick to South Korea in a very dangerous position.

...

61'  Hwang takes a shot from the left of the box, but Sule dives in to block the shot in the nick of time. The game has been kicked up a notch or two over the last ten minutes or so.

...

57'  Goal for Son! Immediate response from the Koreans. The number 7 surged into the penalty area, leaving defenders behind with a few stepovers. He the coolly slotted the ball home past Horn. We're level again.

...

55'  Goal for Selke! Germany lead 2-1. Meyer fed the ball through to him in a crowded box, but the striker charged through and popped a shot at goal. The keeper got a hand to it, but couldn't do enough to keep the scores level.

...

52'  Gnabry shows some quick feet to dribble past a defender and pop a shot at goal. The keeper managed to keep it out, but it fell straight to Selke. The German headed the ball goalwards, but the Korean stopper was able to hold it this time.

...

49'  Another terrifying moment for the Germans. Horn came off his line, but couldn't control the ball. The net was wide open, but a defender managed to get a block in at the last second. Close call.

...

45'  We're back for the second half. Korea get the game underway as the ref blows his whistle.

...

45+1'  The referee brings an end to the first half. It's been a decent game of football thus far, but Gemany look more dangerous than South Korea. The Germans have had the better chances of the first half. Neither manager will be disappointed with their teams, but both will expect more in the second half.

...

45+1'  Choi goes down after an aerial clash with Selke. Their heads met, and Choi clearly came off worse than the German.
