On another incredible afternoon of drama in Qatar, Uruguay looked to be heading through to the last-16 after going 2-0 up against Ghana. South Korea needed a miracle after falling 1-0 behind to Portugal – and they found one with a super turnaround.
Defender Kim Young-gwon got the Asian side back on level terms before Hwang Hee-chan found a dramatic late winner in the first minute of stoppage time to send South Korea through.

As cameras panned to the veteran forward on the bench, he struggled to hold back the tears, holding his hands behind his head in disbelief at what had happened.
Uruguay, leading 2-0 for the majority of the game, were unable to find the one goal they needed in stoppage time to make it 3-0 as they crashed out of the World Cup on goal difference.
