Incredible scenes in Gwangju as Korea score all five penalties to become the first Asian side to reach the World Cup semi-finals. A much-fancied Spanish team have crashed out in the quarter-finals again.

Result: Spain 0-0 South Korea
(Korea win 5-3 on penalties)

Korea take the first penalty in front of an electric Gwangju crowd.

1-1: - Hwang scores | Hierro scores
2-2: - Park scores | Baraja scores
3-3: - Seol scores | Xavi scores
4-3: - Ahn scores | Joaquin misses
5-3: - Hong scores

120 mins (+1): The quarter-final will be decided on penalties as the game ends 0-0.

119 mins: Joaquin is now a virtual spectator having pulled a muscle in his leg.

117 mins: The Korean defence takes much credit from this match. It has been well organised and determined throughout against players who ply their trades at the top clubs in Europe.

115 mins: Players are starting to feel the effects of cramp as penalties loom. Still Korea push on but still a quality final ball eludes them.

112 mins: A mad scramble in the Korean box leads to a Spanish corner.

109 mins: Hwang Sun-Hong has a shot on the turn but does not trouble Iker Casillas. Moments later the same player has a guilt-edged chance to volley home but nerves get the better of him and he scuffs his shot.

107 mins: Seol Ki-Hyeon turns well to outwit the excellent Carlos Puyol but no striker can reach his cross.

0944 BST: The second half of extra time kicks off. Much to the crowd's delight, Korea are within one 'golden goal' of a place in the World Cup semi-finals.

105 mins: Still no break through in this intriguing match as the referee blows for the end of the first period of extra time.

102 mins: South Korea are still full of running but their touch is letting them down and the Europeans look the more likely victors.

100 mins: Fortune is smiling on Korea. Spanish striker Fernando Morientes makes a quick turn and watches his strike rebound off a post.

99 mins: With a full team on the pitch Spain are showing marginally more attacking flair in this spell of extra time than they did against the Republic of Ireland a man down.

97 mins: Lee Chun-Soo tries a shot from range but his strike drifts over Iker Casillas's bar.

95 mins: Korea are lifted by their fortune and surge forwards in search of the killer goal.

92 mins: A second goal is disallowed for Spain as the linesman rules the ball out of play before Fernando Morientes heads home. It looks a questionable decision.

0928 BST Extra time kicks off and Korea look likely to feed off their crowd and press for a 'golden goal'.

Both teams must shake off tired legs after both crept through their second-round games after extra time. Spain may still look to Raul, who was declared unfit to start the match.

90 mins (+3) Time runs out on the Korean charge. For both teams a second straight spell of extra time looms.

89 mins: Guus Hiddink makes another bold move bringing on forward Hwang Sun-Hong for Kim Tae-Young.

86 mins: The crowd gets louder as Koreans try to lift their team for one final effort. With time running out, they know one late strike would likely finish off Spain.

83 mins: As Spain attempt to win the match before dreaded 'golden goal' time, they pump the ball hopefully into Korea's box. Lee Woon-Jae punches away well.

80 mins: Juan Carlos Valeron has been a huge disappointment for Spain and he makes way for attacking midfielder Luis Enrique, scorer of many key goals during a long international career.

78 mins: With so much hanging on the result of this game, it is to both teams' credit - and to the referee's - that affairs have been conducted in such good spirit.

75 mins: Although Spain have been in control for long spells, they are creating few clear-cut chances now and time is marching on towards a tense extra time.

70 mins: Gaizka Mendieta - scorer of the winning penalty against the Republic of Ireland - comes on for Francisco de Pedro.

68 mins: There is more thrust to the Korean play now and Guus Hiddink seems to have made another inspired swap as much of the good work is coming from Lee Chun-Soo.

65 mins: An encouraging attack for South Korea results in a corner from which Park Ji-Sung forces an excellent, close-range save from Iker Casillas.

61 mins: Korea coach Guus Hiddink tries to change things around a bit, bringing on Lee Chun-Soo for Yoo Sang-Chul.

58 mins: Spain look to have Korea's measure at the back and threaten from time to time going forward. Joaquin is the most exciting player on the pitch and his contributions could yet prove decisive.

53 mins: A burst of noise from the crowd appears to encourage the Koreans who press back Spain. The co-hosts still lack an end-product to their good work.

49 mins: Ruben Baraja heads in a Joaquin cross but his goal is disallowed for some pushing in the area. Fernando Morientes immediately misses another good chance.

48 mins: It has been an untidy start to the second period with neither team managing to put their foot on the ball.

0834 BST: The second half kicks off and South Korea will need to be at their energetic best to see off a Spanish side that is growing in confidence.

45 mins (+3): Korea began the game the stronger side, but Spain have won an increasing share of possession and have created by far the better chances. In the last action of the first half, Fernando Hierro heads onto the roof of the net.

44 mins: Joaquin looks Spain's brightest player, going on a jinking run but just failing to find a finish with his left foot.

42 mins: Joaquin floats in a delightful cross, which evades the Korean keeper and also full-stretch Spanish striker Fernando Morientes.

40 mins: Korea are having to resort to long crosses into the box, but this is easy fodder for the big Spanish defenders.

36 mins: The relatively slow pace of the match is due in part to the hot weather in Gwangju but may favour the Europeans more than the bustling co-hosts.

32 mins: Kim Nam-Il is still feeling the effects of an early Spanish challenge and limps off the field.

30 mins: The vocal Korean crowd are seeing more possession for Spain and are relieved when a Fernando Hierro header loops over the bar.

27 mins: Fernando Morientes leaps highest to head on target from another free-kick but Lee Woon-Jae gathers well.

25 mins: A first test for Korean keeper Lee Woon-Jae is dealt with well as Francisco de Pedro's whipped free-kick is punched away authoritatively.

22 mins: Fernando Morientes wins a free-kick in a dangerous position, but captain Fernando Hierro fires against the wall.

20 mins: Another promising build-up from Korea comes to nothing as Seol Ki-Hyeon's cross drifts out on the full.

17 mins: First half-chance for Spain as Ruben Baraja tries an overhead kick from the edge of the box. It falls harmlessly wide of Lee Woon-Jae's goal.

15 mins: While the Spanish attack looks blunt without star striker Raul, Korea are probing for openings through Ahn Jung-Hwan and Hong Myung-Bo.

11 mins: It has been a nervous opening by the Spaniards. Their record in the knockout stages of the World Cup is poor and their apprehension is apparent.

8 mins: Ahn Jung-Hwan - scorer of the golden goal against Italy - wriggles free on the left side of the Spanish box. His cross narrowly evades onrushing team-mates to the relief of Spanish goalkeeper Iker Casillas.

6 mins: Korea show the early attacking ambition but face a wall of Spanish defenders every time they surge forwards.

3 mins: Spain have paid the co-hosts the compliment of playing just one lone striker - Fernando Morientes - and they make a cautious start.

0730 BST: The crowd erupts as Korea get the latest chapter of their World Cup odyssey under way. The co-hosts are playing in their change strip of white.

A sea of red has quickly engulfed the stadium as the Korean fans prepare to cheer on their side to what they hope will be a historic semi-final place.

And an estimated five million people have taken to the streets to watch on hundreds of big television screens.

Spain are without star striker Raul, who has not recovered from his groin injury in time.

The Europeans call up midfielder Joaquin along with defenders Miguel Angel Nadal and Romero, while Luis Enrique and Juanfran are dropped to the substitutes' bench.

South Korea start with the same side that memorably beat Italy in the second round.

Lynchpin defender Kim Tae-young plays with a broken nose and defensive midfielder Kim Nam-il is also in the side after recovering from a twisted ankle.

Spain: Iker Casillas, Puyol, Fernando Hierro (capt), Ivan Helguera, Romero, Joaquin, Baraja, De Pedro, Valeron, Nadal, Fernando Morientes

South Korea: Lee Woon-Jae, Choi Jin-Cheul, Kim Nam-il, Yoo Sang-Chul, Kim Tae-Young, Seol Ki-Hyeon, Lee Young-Pyo, Ahn Jung-Hwan, Hong Myung-Bo (capt), Park Ji-Sung, Song Chong-Gug
