“We’re exceptionally blissful, we merited it for all that we did in the three games,” South Korea collaborator mentor Sergio Costa, subbing for suspended manager Paulo Bento, said. “We devote this triumph to every one of the South Korean individuals who support us a lot.

“We’ll praise a bit, rest and this evening we’ll see our probable rival. Then, similar to all games, we’ll set it up similarly – – knowing qualities, shortcomings, changing in accordance with our attributes and setting up the game plan.”

Portugal took a quickfire lead in the fifth moment when Horta diverted home following great work from Diogo Dalot down the right-hand side – – scoring on his significant competition debut.

South Korea had the ball in the net in the seventeenth moment, yet Kim Jin-Su was considered to be offside as he completed from short proximity after a fine save from Diogo Costa.

The dark horses had their balancer in the 27th moment, notwithstanding, when Kim controlled a free ball past Costa after a corner skipped off Cristiano Ronaldo.

And they found the victor when Child Heung-Min drove a splendid counter-assault from a Portugal corner which was masterfully wrapped up by Hwang.

“Things went poorly and the obligation is mine, clearly,” Portugal mentor Fernando Santos said.

“In the final part the group had many high points and low points. In the primary half, we didn’t allow them to counter assault, however in the second, the ball flowed slower.

“It had previously occurred with Serbia [Portugal surrendered a stoppage-time objective to them in World Cup qualifying which implied they dropped to the play-offs] and the players realize completely well that it can’t work out, they [have been] more than cautioned [about] this. It can’t happen.”
