The Selecao finished top of Group G on goal difference, while the Tigers of Asia shocked Portugal on the final day in Group H to qualify for the knockouts in second place.

Plenty chances came the way of a much-changed Brazil side in their final Group G tie with Cameroon, but a combination of stellar goalkeeping from Devis Epassy and wastefulness from Tite’s fringe players could have proven more costly than it did on the day.

The Indomitable Lions held out for 92 minutes before securing a famous victory through Voincent Aboubakar, who was sent off for a shirt-stripping celebration having already been booked, but that 1-0 result made no difference as Cameroon packed their bags and bid goodbye, while Tite’s side just about held off Switzerland to top the group.

Brazil’s nine-game winning streak has now come to a grinding halt, who are still regarded as one of the favourites to go all the way in a World Cup of giant killings, but even their narrow victories over Serbia and Switzerland didnot come with the attacking ruthlessness that has been expected of them.

Slow starts have been a theme for the Selecao at the Qatar tournament so far, and they have now gone five World Cup games without scoring in the first half, which will need to be rectified should they wish to hang on to their favourites tag a little while longer.

A historic all-Asian quarter-final at the World Cup is now a real possibility following the events of Friday, where South Korea recovered from Ricardo Horta’s early goal for Portugal to surprise the 2016 European champions and progress to the knockout rounds.

Neither Uruguay nor Portugal possessed the formula for success against Paulo Bento’s side, who could potentially meet Japan in the quarter-final, although their near neighbours face their own daunting last-16 tie with Croatia on Monday as well.

South Korea have only ever managed to progress beyond the last 16 at the World Cup once, reaching the semi-finals of the 2002 edition amid a wave off officiating controversy, and they faced Brazil as recently as June, but that friendly game ended in a 5-1 defeat.

However, Tite has lost both Alex Telles and Gabriel Jesus for the remainder of the competition through knee problems sustained against Cameroon.

South Korea Team News

South Korea’s Kim Min-jae was rested for the game against Portugal due to calf discomfort and should now be fit enough to return to the starting lineup.

Hwang had been dealing with hamstring pain throughout the competition before coming up with the goal that would send his nation through, and should start here.
