Son in joyful tears as South Korea remarkably advance to knock out stage

South Korea played against Portugal on the evening of Friday at the Education city stadium. They played a fair game employing the Guerilla warfare most of the times, that is, they used counter attacking more often.

In the first 15 minutes things didn't work well for them for they found themselves trailing in the 5th minute. However, their tactic paid off in the 27th minutes as they managed an equaliser scored by Yuong-Gwon Kim. The first half ended on a draw.

Korea held Portugal in the second half until a counter attack paid off in the first minute of stoppage time. Son's assist was finished fabulously by fellow premier league player Hwang Hee Chan. Celebrations filled the stadium after the stunning goal.

When the final whistle was blown, several South Korean players broke into tears including captain Heung-min Son. He went onto the ground in dismay as they advanced to the knockout stages to face Brazil.

Meanwhile, Uruguay were eliminated even after crushing Ghana 2-0. Uruguay and Ghana finished third and fourth respectively. Thus, they were both eliminated.
