South Korea

  • Lee Eul-Young 9'
  • Song Chong-Gug 90'

2 - 3



  • Hakan Sukur 1'
  • Ilhan Mansiz 13'
  • Ilhan Mansiz 32'
  • 93'

    South Korea have lit up this world sup with some energetic displays, a series of shock results and a bit of controversy to boot. A conspriacy against the bigger nations? Not a chance

  • 93'

    Turkey were just too strong in attack, capitalising on an error-prone Korean defence

  • 93'

    Too litle too late for South Korea. They had the final say in this match, but it's Turkey who take third place in the 2002 World Cup

  • 93'

    The final whistle is blown

  • 93'

    ...Song's shot took a deflection which beat Rustu, and the ball nestled into the bottom right-hand corner of Turkey's goal. 3-2 and a glimmer of hope for the Korean fans

  • 93'


  • 93'

    Song takes control of the ball. He comes forward as the Turkish defend stand off...

  • 92'

    Hakan Sukur comes forward with support from Ilhan and Tugay. He goes for the shot from the edge of the box, but his scuffed and wide of the post

  • 91'

    For a time the South Korean fans must have felt they could win the tournament, but they've just run out of steam

  • 90'

    Three minutes of injury time to be added

  • 89'

    ...but his flick header at the near post just goes over the bar

  • 89'

    Cha Doo-Ri wins a corner off Hakan Unsal. Song floats it in and Cha Doo-Ri gets there...

  • 89'

    Another long-range effort from Lee Chun-Soo but, yet again, it's straight at the Turkish custodian

  • 88'

    Cha Doo-Ri breaks forward with pace on the right. He finds Ahn in the ox, but the striker's control is woeful and the ball bounces off his knee to safety

  • 86'

    Another change for Turkey as Yildiray Basturk is replaced by Tayfur Havutcu

  • 86'

    Lee Chun-Soo this time fires in a shot, but again it's at Rustu. Korea can only find long range chances, unable to break into the box

  • 85'

    Now Cha Doo-Ri tires an effort from the edge of the box, but again Rustu is equal to it

  • 84'

    Korea have got some of their energy back. The ball comes to Ahn on the edge of the box, but his shot is deflected wide of the post

  • 83'

    Cha Doo-Ri finds a bit of space on the edge of the box. Ahn wants it but Cha Doo-Ri shoots... way over the bar

  • 82'

    ...but there's no power on the shot and Rustu collects down low

  • 81'

    Choi immediately gets into the action with a good cross from the left. Ahn knocks the ball back to Lee Chun-Soo who stabs the ball towards goal...

  • 80'

    Another substitution by South Korea. Seol Ki-Hyun is replaced by Choi Yong-Soo

  • 79'

    Song feeds in Cha Doo-Ri on the right, but his cross is deflected behind off Bulent for a corner

  • 78'

    The Koreans have certainly run out of steam here. Fourth place, however, is no disgrace for this team of giantkillers

  • 77'

    Kim clips Ilhan, and that's another free-kick

  • 76'

    The Turks do make a change, but for now it's not Rustu who's replaced but Umit Davala. Okan Buruk comes on

  • 75'

    South Korea to win, with bet365  
    Turkey to win, with bet365  

  • 75'

    Rustu looks to be struggling with an injury - one he's had for most of the tournament. He may have to come off

  • 74'

    Seol again comes forward, on the left flank this time, is cross is poor and hits the side netting

  • 73'

    Seol gets onto the ball just outside the box. He checks back inside and tries to fins the top corner of the net, but only finds the top corner of the stand

  • 72'

    Lee Young-Pyo tries a cross from the left, but the ball swings out of play

  • 71'

    Cha Soo-Ri finds himself in space after the ball is chipped over the top. There's not flag,but the sub cannot get enough on his header and Rustu collects

  • 70'

    Hakan Sukur gets into the box and tries to tap the ball to Basturk, but Kim is able to get a slight touch and take it away from Basturk

  • 69'

    ...It's Tugay's delivery, but straight into the hands of Lee Woon-Jae

  • 68'

    Ilhan is felled by Lee Min-Sung. Free-kick just outside the box on the left...

  • 67'

    Ergun climbs all over Yoo. Free-kick

  • 67'

    Lee Chun-So tries to get in behind the defence, but he pushes the ball too far and it's a goal kick

  • 66'

    Seol tries to make a break down the left, but runs the ball out of play

  • 65'

    A chnage for South Korea. The goalscorer Lee Eul-Young goes off, and it's Cha Doo-Ri who comes on

  • 64'

    ...but Rustu recovers to dive at the feet of Park. Great goalkeeping

  • 63'

    Seol floats in a ball from the right again, Rustu goes to claim but he can't hold. Park is there...

  • 62'

    Hakan Sukur tries to feed the ball through to Ilhan, but again the flag goes up

  • 61'

    Hakan Sukur crosses into the box, Ilhan gets his toe to the ball and takes it away from the boot of Ergun. Instant apologies from Ilhan

  • 60'

    South Korea to win, with bet365  
    Turkey to win, with bet365  

  • 60'

    The Koreans' early promise of this second half seems to have falen away. Maybe that exciting energy is leaving the co-hosts

  • 59'

    Tugay threads the ball through to Hakan Sukur with a slide-rule pass, but the flag rightly goes up for offside

  • 58'

    Tugay floats in the corner but Hakan Sukur puts his header wide

  • 57'

    Ergun does well just inside the box to get the cross in towards Hakan Sukur, but Kim does well to beat him to the ball and knock it behind

  • 56'

    It's been all Korea this half, but can they get back into this game on the goals front?

  • 55'

    Lee Eul-Young does wel to hold off two challenges. He tries a shot from just inside the D, but his swerving effort is straight into the hands of Rustu

  • 54'

    Seol is brought down by Hakan Unsal on the right-hand touchline. Free-kick

  • 53' was a fine effort, with Rustu beaten all ends up, but the ball just clipped the top of the bar and went over

  • 52'

    The ball comes back to Song on the edge of the the box and he unleashes a great shot...

  • 51'

    Lee Eul-Young tries to get a ball in from the left flank but Alpay clears

  • 50'

    Seol wins a corner off Bulent. The ball comes back to Lee Chun-Soo on the edge of the box but he fires way over the bar

  • 49'

    A yellow card for Tugay after a late challenge on Kim

  • 48'

    Song turns inside to get into the box and looks to have played it too strong as Bulent closes in. He somehow manages to get a tame shot off, but Rustu collects the ball in his midrift

  • 47'

    A change for South Korea at the break. Kim Tae-Young comes on for Hong Myung-Bo

  • 46'

    The second half gets underway

  • 45'

    South Korea to win, with bet365  
    Turkey to win, with bet365  

  • 45'

    Turkey's finishing has been deadly, with Hakan Sukur finally looking like the world class player we all know he is. Turkey are odds-on for third spot now

  • 45'

    Korea have looked dangerous in attack, but their defence has let them down badly. It's a long way back from here

  • 45'

    And there goes the half-time whistle

  • 45'

    Seol tries an ambitious shot from 30-yards, but his daisy-cutter flies wide of Rustu's right-hand post

  • 45'

    Lee Eul-Young crosses in from the left, but Ahn's header is poor under pressure from Bulent, and Rustu catches the ball

  • 45'

    Free-kick to Turkey. Tugay tries to lift the ball over the top for Hakan Sukur, but the flag goes up for offside

  • 44'

    ...but Lee Woon-Jae keeps the ball out with his chest and Korea survive

  • 43'

    Turkey on the attack again here and Ilhan finds Hakan Sukur just inside the box. He holds off Hong and gets in a shot...

  • 42'

    A change here for Turkey, Emre Belozoglu goes off and is replaced by Hakan Unsal

  • 41'

    But the goal is disallowed. Ahn himself may not have been offside, but Seol was by about five yards. Correct offside decision in a South Korea match!

  • 40'

    Park has the ball in the D, and feeds the ball to the unmarked Ahn. He takes one touch before firing the ball past Rustu

  • 39'

    Song crosses in from the right and Rustu comes out to claim. Bulent beats his own keeper to the ball, but Turkey escape as Alpay picks up to clear

  • 38''s a great downward header from Hakan Sukur, but Lee Woon-Jae gets down well and gets enough on the ball to send it wide of the post

  • 37'

    Corner to Turkey. Emre takes from the left, and Hakan Sukur is first to the ball...

  • 37'

    Good play again by Korea and Song turns well inside the box. He looks sure to score before Umit makes a brilliant and perfectly timed tackle to deny the midfielder it thwarted

  • 36'

    The Koreans may be two goals down, but the drums are still beating in Daejun

  • 35'

    ...but the ball was slightly behind him and his powerful effort was never going to hit the target

  • 34'

    Seol again does well on the right and cuts the ball to the edge of the box for Lee Chun-Soo. He tries the shot...

  • 33'

    Ilhan expertly lifted the ball over the top of Lee Woon-Jae to double Turkey's advantage

  • 32'


  • 31'

    A huge clearance by Rustu finds Ilhan just a few yards outside the box. He links up brilliantly with Hakan Sukur and picks up the return ball...

  • 30'

    South Korea to win, with bet365  
    Turkey to win, with bet365  

  • 30'

    Lee Eul-Young tries to swing a ball into Yoo, but Rustu gets there first

  • 29'

    Park plays the ball in towards Ahn, but Bulent gets in a vital interception

  • 28'

    This game got off to a real humdinger of a start. The goals may have dried up but the action certainly hasn't

  • 27'

    Bulent goes down after a late challeng by Ahn onthe edge of his own box. Ahn seemed to tred on the players ankle, but no card

  • 26'

    Park again comes forward with great purpose. He slips a neat ball through the centre to find Ahn just inside the box, but Rustu comes out well to claim

  • 25'

    A great spectacle here in Daegu. Korea slightly on top, but Turkey have the goal advantage

  • 24'

    Umit is sent crashing to the floor by Lee Eul-Young. Free-kick, and a yellow card for the Korean midfielder

  • 23'

    Another corner to Korea. Lee Chun-Soo floats in an in-swinger, but Bulent heads clear

  • 22'

    Sone takes the corner, but Rustu comes out to fist the ball away well

  • 21' was a great effort, and an equally brilliant save from Rustu as he pushed the ball over the bar at full stretch. So cose

  • 20'

    Park comes forward again and finds Ahn just inside the box. He twists and turns brilliantly to create an opening before firing in a shot...

  • 19'

    Park tries to turn on the edge of the box but goes down under the challenge of Bulent. No free-kick, quite remarkably

  • 18'

    Ahn turns well 25-yards out and goes for the long-range shot, but can't keep his effort down

  • 18'

    Song takes the corner which Seol just about gets his head to, but it's no more than a flick header and the ball runs to safety

  • 17'

    Neat play here by Korea. Lee Chun-Soo is almost in, but Fatih gets in to conceed the corner

  • 16'

    Seol does well on the right, getting away from Ergun. But the forward's next touch is too strong, and Alpay can close in and win the ball

  • 15'

    South Korea to win, with bet365  
    Turkey to win, with bet365  

  • 15'

    It was a role reversal from the opener, and scorer turned provider. What a game we have here. 2-1 already! Who said this game would be a pointless, boring waste of time!

  • 14'

    Hakan Sukur tapped the ball square to Ilhan, and he managed to beat the defender to the ball and poke it into the corner of the net

  • 13'


  • 12'

    Now it's Turkey on the attack. Basturk plays a short ball forward to Ilhan on the edge of the D. He then finds Sukur just inside the box. Sukur looks to play the one-two...

  • 12'

    ...but his powerful effort is straight at Rustu, the keeper palms the all away and Alpay hacks away

  • 11'

    Lee Chun-Soo now comes forward. The Turkish defence stands off the tricky midfielder and has the chance to shoot...

  • 11'

    It's South Korea very much on top now. The belief is back and Turkey are under pressure

  • 10'

    A superb strike by Lee Eul-Young, fired right into the top right-hand corner of Rustu's net. A fanastic free-kick. Game on!

  • 9'


  • 8'

    It's Lee Eul-Young to strike, just to the right of the D...

  • 7'

    Bulent brings Song to the floor just outside the box. A chance here...

  • 6'

    Free-kick to Turkey 25-yards outside the box, but Ilhan's effort is over the bar

  • 5'

    The Korean fans are still in fine voice despite that horrendous start.

  • 4''s very strong but Lee Eul-Young is on the end of it, but his shot is wild and way over the bar

  • 3'

    Seol breaks well down the right, and floats a deep ball into the box...

  • 2'

    It was a terrible mistake by the Korean skipper in his last international game, and Hakan Sukur beat Bryan Robson's record from 1982

  • 1'

    Hakan Sukur had the simple task of sliding the ball under Lee Woon-Jae. A goal after just seven seconds - the fastest goal in World Cup history

  • 1'


  • 1'

    It's a terrible mistake by Hong Myung-Bo, he loses out to Ilhan Mansiz on the edge of the D. The ball runs to Hakan Sukur...

  • 1'

    Referee Saad Mane blows his whistle, and South Korea get the third/fourth place play-off underway


    Turkey made just the one change with golden-goal hero Ilhan Mansiz replacing Hasan Sas, who is not fully fit.


    Guus Hiddink fields as strong a side as injuries permit. Seol Ki-hyeon and Ahn Jung-hwan return, while veteran striker Hwang Sun-hong is on the bench.
