South Korea grabs dramatic stoppage time win to reach last 16

Al-Rayyan , SANA – South Korea scored in the 91st minute to beat Portugal 2-1 and secure themselves a spot in the last 16 of the World Cup in the most dramatic fashion.

They finished Group H level on points and goal difference with Uruguay but went through ahead of Uruguay based on goals scored, as they scored three group stage goals to Uruguay’s two.

Wolves striker Hwang Hee-chan scored the winner as he was set up by Heung-min Son and slotted home.

South Korea have reached the last 16 of the World Cup for just the second time since their legendary run to the semifinals as hosts in 2002 and just the third time in their history.
