40 mins: Another Italian attack comes to an end when Gianluca Zambrotta is caught offside.

38 mins: Lee Woon-Jae makes a superb save at the feet of Damiano Tommasi after the Italian midfielder is played in by a return pass from Francesco Totti. The loose ball rolls towards the Korean goal-line but Choi Jin-Chul sweeps up to complete the clearance.

1 min: Italy are roundly booed by the home crowd as they play the ball across their backline before springing forward to create the game's first opening. Gianluca Zambrotta gets a cross in from the right which is just too long for Francesco Totti.

1232: Italy get the match underway against a wall of sound from the packed Korean crowd.

1215 BST: The atmosphere is approaching fever pitch in the Daejeon World Cup Stadium as 40,000 South Korean fans turn the stands into a sea of red.

One end of the ground is transformed into a giant mosaic of placards spelling out the message "Again - 1966", a reference to neighbouring North Korea's World Cup victory over Italy - the Azzurri's darkest day in the tournament.

Other banners proclaim "Welcome to Azzurri's tomb" and predict "South Korea 5 Italy 0".

And the mood is reflected across the nation, with an estimated 1.25m people packing the streets of central Seoul ahead of kick-off.
