All the action as co-hosts South Korea overwhelm a poor Poland team in Busan.

1423 BST: The referee blows for full-time, sending the South Korean fans in noisy rapture.
Full-time: South Korea 2-0 Poland

92 mins: Park Ji-Sung nearly adds a third goal but his low shot from outside the box is just wide.

90 mins: Ahn Jung-Hwan tests Jerzy Dudek with a sharp shot down to his left. Dudek spills but bravely foils Cha Doo-Ri, who is following up from an offside position and who is then booked for the challenge.

89 mins: Cha Doo-Ri comes on for Seol Ki-Hyeon.

85 mins: Piotr Swierczewski is booked after bringing down Ahn Jung-Hwan.

83 mins: Song Chong-Gug breaks well and his pass frees Ahn Jung-Hwan behind the Poland defence but Jerzy Dudek covers well at the near post.

82 mins: Lee Woon-Jae does well to punch a deep cross off the head of Emmanuel Olisadebe.

79 mins: Tomasz Hajto is booked for a tackle from behind on Seol Ki-Hyeon.

77 mins: Seol Ki-Hyeon does well to keep the ball in and feeds Ahn Jung-Hwan, who turns smartly on the edge of the box and takes a quick shot which is just wide.

73 mins: Lee Chun-Soo beats the Poland offside trap but the move comes to nothing.

70 mins: Park Ji-Sung is booked for encroaching as Michal Zewlakow takes a free-kick. The Pole retakes the free-kick but his effort goes over.

69 mins: The first real moment of danger for South Korea comes with a curling cross into the centre which Hong Myung-Bo does well to head out for a corner.

67 mins: Tomasz Waldoch has to concede a corner as Ahn Jung-Hwan attacks on the right-hand goal-line but it comes to nothing.

65 mins: Poland make a couple of rare forays forward but the attacks break down without causing South Korea any problems.

64 mins: Poland send on striker Marcin Zewlakow for Radoslaw Kaluzny.

63 mins: Lee Chun-Soo hares down the right wing after being released by a long pass from the Korean defence but he shoots into the side-netting when he should probably have centred the ball.

60 mins: Yoo Sang-Chul is stretchered off and although he soon sits up again, South Korea coach Guus Hiddink decides to send on Lee Chun-Soo as a replacement.

58 mins: Despite being 2-0 down, Poland are still on the back foot with South Korea doing the pressing. The European side are sticking to the long-ball tactic which failed in the first half.

53 mins: Yoo Sang Chul puts South Korea in a commanding position with a great strike. He dispossesses Tomasz Hajto in the Polish defence and strides towards the "D" of the penalty area before unleashing a powerful right-foot shot which Jerzy Dudek can only push into the corner of the net.
South Korea 2-0 Poland

50 mins: Ahn Jung-Hwan comes on for goal-scorer Hwang Sun-Hong while Tomasz Klos replaces Jacek Bak for Poland.

46 mins: Song Chong-Gug's corner is headed on to Park Ji-Song and his fierce volley is tipped over by Jerzy Dudek.

1335 BST: With Poland substitute Pawel Kryszalowicz on for Maciej Zurawski, South Korea kick off the second half.

42 mins: With South Korea happy to sit back a little and Poland not possessing the ability to string together a decent move, the match drifts towards half-time.
Half-time: South Korea 1-0 Poland

37 mins: Poland's defence is guilty of poor marking again as Yoo Sang-Chul gets the ball in acres of space on the right - he puts the ball in the net but it is ruled offside.

32 mins: Emmanuel Olisadebe causes a few problems for South Korea when he takes on their defence and gets the ball into the box but it is scrambled clear.

30 mins: Yoo Sang-Chul goes down heavily in a tackle with Jacek Krynowek. It appears to be a 50-50 challenge but the Pole is booked.

29 mins: The home team have got the bit between their teeth and they press forward with Poland looking stretched.

25 mins: Hwang Sun Hong sends the home crowd wild by opening the scoring. Lee Eul-Yong crosses in and Hwang Sun Hong, completely unmarked, finds the back of the net with a low left-foot volley.
South Korea 1-0 Poland

22 mins: Emmanuel Olisadebe puts Maciej Zurawski through but the latter's first touch lets him down and the ball is shepherded to safety by Choi Jin-Chul.

20 mins: Yoo Sang-Chul fires a powerful shot from 20 yards which just skims over the upright of Jerzy Dudek's goal.

19 mins: Seol Ki-Hyeon causes more problems for the Polish with a run down the left. Tomasz Waldoch puts in a good tackle - Seol Ki-Hyeon manages to cross into the centre but nothing comes of it.

17 mins: It has been a bustling opening to the game, helped by the enthusiasm of the crowd, who roar every time South Korea move towards their opponents' penalty area.

13 mins: Seol Ki-Hyeon gets behind the Poland defence but they recover in time to get the ball out for a corner.

11 mins: Emmanuel Olisadebe weaves through the South Korean defence but Choi Jin-Chul clears to avert the danger.

9 mins: Hong Myung-Bo finds himself in space and lets rip a shot which deflects for a corner, which Song Chong-Gug takes. An unmarked Seol Ki-Hyeon gets up to meet his centre but heads the ball down and Jerzy Dudek safely collects.

7 mins: Michel Zewlakov is penalised on the left-hand side of Poland's defence. Jacek Bak clears the subsequent free-kick with a strong header and Kim Tae-Young's shot ends up near the corner flag.

5 mins: Piotr Swierczewski gets to the goal-line and pulls the ball back to Maciej Zurawski - his cross-shot flies across the face of the goal but Marek Kozminski, running in, cannot quite get on the end of it.

2 mins: Poland nearly take an early lead when Jacek Krzynowek finds space on the left wing but his poor shot hits the side-netting.

1230 BST Poland kick off in front of packed stadium in Busan.

South Korea: Lee Woon-Jae, Choi Jin-Cheul, Hong Myung-Bo, Kim Tae-Young, Song Chong-Gug, Kim Nam-Il, Yoo Sang-Chul, Lee Eul-Yong, Park Ji-Sung; Hwang Sun-Hong, Seol Ki-Hyeon.
