22:42 (IST)2 DEC 2022

A couple of tweets before we end.

22:35 (IST)2 DEC 2022

South Korea are through as Uruguay fails to score another goal. Luis Suarez is in tears and inconsolable. South Korea advance on goals scored having netted four to Uruguay's two.

22:25 (IST)2 DEC 2022

FULL-TIME! South Korea 2 Portugal 1. An exhilarating end from South Korea after Son fed Hwang and the winner was scored. But Korea need to wait to know whether they have qualified. Coming to this game, Portugal scored early but Korea turned it around with two goals. Another roller-coaster of a game.

22:24 (IST)2 DEC 2022

South Korea are going through as things stand on goals scored. Uruguay need to score another to qualify.

22:22 (IST)2 DEC 2022

By the way 6 minutes of added time as the goal was scored in the 1st of added time.

22:20 (IST)2 DEC 2022

GOAL! Hee-Chan Hwang in the 91st minute! South Korea 2 Portugal 1. South Koreaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa! They are qualifying to the round of 16 with that goal as things stand. A corner is cleared and Son is away, he sprints some 50 yards and then stops before feeding Hwang who finishes superbly past Diogo Costa. Bedlam in the stands and tears from the Korean supporters. Unbelievable stuff.

22:15 (IST)2 DEC 2022

Hwang Ui-jo and Son Jun-ho are on for Kwon and Lee as well.

22:15 (IST)2 DEC 2022

Portugal make a couple of changes: Bernardo Silva and William Carvalho for Vitinha and Joao Mario.

21:58 (IST)2 DEC 2022

Son wants a penalty as he volleys at Cancelo who turns his back and it's not close to the arm. Hit him on the ribs.

21:58 (IST)2 DEC 2022

South Korea are exiting the World Cup as things stand. If they do score, they'll be in second place ahead of Uruguay on goals scored.

21:55 (IST)2 DEC 2022

Portugal give the ball away in midfield and In-Beom Hwang with Son to his right blasts it straight at the keeper. That was a good chance.

21:53 (IST)2 DEC 2022

Triple change for Portugal - Cristiano Ronaldo, Ruben Neves and Nunes Matheus Luiz off. Maria Joao Palhinha, Miguel Andre Silva and Rafael Leao are on.

21:51 (IST)2 DEC 2022

Changes coming for both sides.

21:48 (IST)2 DEC 2022

Son has acres of space into but he attempts to cut inside on his left-foot near the box and is closed down.

21:48 (IST)2 DEC 2022

It is all Portugal at the moment and Korea are planning to hit on the counter.

21:44 (IST)2 DEC 2022

After a prolonged spell of possession from Portugal, Korea counter and Son's shot is blocked by Antonio Silva. Son then urges the Korean supporters to raise their voice.

21:33 (IST)2 DEC 2022

Second half starts.

21:18 (IST)2 DEC 2022

HALF-TIME! South Korea 1 Portugal 1. The group may not be going their way but South Korea are battling along. They trailed to an early goal but a piece of luck helped them equalise. All to play for in the second half even as Portugal just need a point to top the group.

21:16 (IST)2 DEC 2022

Two minutes of added time.

21:16 (IST)2 DEC 2022

Great feet from Vitinha and he finds Luz Ricardo Horta who on the turn shoots straight at the keeper.

21:13 (IST)2 DEC 2022

WHAT A CHANCE FOR RONALDO. After a fierce drive from Vitinha is punched away and it falls to Ronaldo who is quickest to react but can't direct the header on goal. Drags it wide. Was unmarked as well.

21:13 (IST)2 DEC 2022

STAT courtesy BBC: At the age of 32, Kim Young-gwon has become the second-oldest goalscorer for South Korea at a World Cup behind Hwang Sun-hong (age 33) who netted their first goal at their home World Cup against Poland in 2002.

21:12 (IST)2 DEC 2022

Son attempts a volley from outside the box but it is straight at Diogo Costa.

21:11 (IST)2 DEC 2022

YELLOW CARD TO Kang-In Lee for a challenge on Vitinha.

21:11 (IST)2 DEC 2022

Diogo Dalot cuts in on the left and fires a shot which is saved by the keeper. Was on target as well.

21:02 (IST)2 DEC 2022

Ronaldo now thinks he is in but the flag is up for offside and that's a great save from Seung-Gyu Kim who pushed it wide. Wouldn't have counted anyway.

20:58 (IST)2 DEC 2022

GOAL! Young-Gwon Kim in the 27th minute! South Korea 1 Portugal 1. From a corner South Korea level. It comes off Ronaldo's back who was trying to get out of the way, falls to Kim who can't miss from such close range. South Korea have hope again.

20:48 (IST)2 DEC 2022

GOAL DISALLOWED FOR OFFSIDE - SOUTH KOREA. A clear offside as the ball is flicked on to the back stick where two men are in an offside position to turn the ball home. Immediately the linesman had the flag up and replays show that it was the right decision.

20:37 (IST)2 DEC 2022

GOAL! Luz Ricardo Horta in the 5th minute! South Korea 0 Portugal 1. A long ball over the top and Dalot gets away on the right, beats his man and crosses it to the near-post where Horta is there to sweep home. Brilliant run from Dalot made that possible.

20:30 (IST)2 DEC 2022


20:25 (IST)2 DEC 2022

The lineups are next, so do stay tuned.

18:56 (IST)2 DEC 2022

Portugal coach Fernando Santos reckons Cristiano Ronaldo is 50-50 for today's clash. 

"I think it is 50-50 if he plays or not, we'll see," Santos told a news conference on Thursday."It will depend on if and how he practices today, if we see he is in good condition... there is a plan for if he is not available."

18:54 (IST)2 DEC 2022

Here are some match facts courtesy BBC:

The only previous meeting between South Korea and Portugal was at the 2002 World Cup. The co-hosts won 1-0 through a goal by Park Ji-sung after a Portugal team including South Korea head coach Paulo Bento had Joao Pinto and Beto sent off.

South Korea have been eliminated in the group stage in eight of their 10 previous World Cup appearances.

Portugal have found the net in eight successive World Cup games, their longest scoring run in the competition.

They have won their opening two matches for the third time - on the previous two occasions, in 1966 and 2006, they won their final group fixture and went on to reach the semi-finals.

18:52 (IST)2 DEC 2022

After beginning with a 0-0 loss to Uruguay in their opening game, South Korea slumped to a 2-3 loss against Ghana.

18:51 (IST)2 DEC 2022

How have South Korea done so far?

18:50 (IST)2 DEC 2022

They began their campaign with a 3-2 win against Ghana and then followed it up with a 2-0 win against Uruguay with both goals coming from Bruno Fernandes although a certain Cristiano Ronaldo claimed the first one, but was not given to him.

18:49 (IST)2 DEC 2022

How have Portugal done so far?

18:37 (IST)2 DEC 2022

Here's what South Korea need to do:

If Ghana and Uruguay draw, South Korea will need to beat Portugal by two clear goals to advance. If Uruguay and South Korea both win then it come down to goal difference - and possibly goals scored - with the Asian side holding a one-goal advantage.

18:36 (IST)2 DEC 2022

While Portugal have already qualified, they still need to confirm top spot in the group. A draw will be enough against South Korea to do that. For South Korea, they have to beat Portugal to have any chance of going through.
