How did they get here?

It took nearly TEN minutes of excruciating wait after full-time for South Korea to celebrate qualification to the World Cup knockouts.

Hwang's dramatic injury-time winner saw the Koreans through ahead of Uruguay on goals SCORED.

A 0-0 draw with Uruguay and a dramatic 3-2 loss to Ghana had left them with everything to do on the final day.

The Brazilians haven't scored in the first half of a game yet.

Even a weakened side losing against Cameroon in the final game couldn't stop the South Americans from winning the group.

Team news

Brazil superstar Neymar WILL play against South Korea.

However, Gabriel Jesus is OUT for the whole tournament.

Jesus is on a flight back to London and SunSport understands the Arsenal striker will find out how serious his knee injury is following a consultation with club doctors.

Alex Telles is also sidelined for the remainder of the Qatar showcase.

Telles has withdrawn and Alex Sandro is facing a race for fitness so Tite is struggling at left-back, but Danilo is expected to step in.

Meanwhile, South Korea have less injury doubts.

Kim Min-jae was rested the Portugal contest due to calf problem – he reamins a doubt.

Lee Kang-in and Kim Young-gwon also limped off but should both feature on Monday.

Who will be the star men?

If Neymar beats his battle with fitness, then it's hard to name anyone else as Brazil's star man.

Sometimes controversial in Brazil, the PSG superstar can change a game at the drop of a hat.

Manchester United star Casemiro remains an integral part of Tite's team.

His stunning strike to beat Switzerland was one of the best goals at this World Cup.

For South Korea, Tottenham's Son Heung-min is relentless in attack.

If anyone can break past the Brazil backline, it's Harry Kane's partner.

What's the head to head?

The two sides have only met four times in their history with brazil winning ALL FOUR.

The last time they met was a 5-1 thrashing in June – Neymar scored a brace.

When is Brazil vs South Korea?

  • Brazil face South Korea in the last-16 on Monday, December 5.
  • The match will get underway from 7pm UK time.
  • The clash will take place at Stadium 974 in Qatar.

    Good evening from Qatar!

    Hello and welcome to SunSport’s live coverage of this evening’s round of 16 contest between five-time winners Brazil and South Korea.

    Brazil are hoping to bounce back from their 1-0 defeat to Cameroon in Group G. However, the loss wasn’t enough to prevent Selecao winning their World Cup group for the 11th consecutive tournament.

    Brazil boss Tite is likely to return to his favoured starting 11 after ringing the changes last time out, and with Neymar reportedly back fit, they should be at full strength this evening.

    They are up against a South Korean side hoping to continue to surprise. Their sensational 2-1 win against Portugal knocked out Uruguay on goals scored, setting up a daunting tie against the number one ranked team in the world.

    Nevertheless, upsets have become something of a theme in Qatar and the Taiguk Warriors will be hoping inspire another this evening, as they look to reach the quarter finals for just the second time in their history.

    The action is scheduled for 19:00 in Doha and we will bring you the team news imminently as we build up to kick-off at Stadium 974.
