92 mins: The referee blows the final whistle. China bow out of the tournament without scoring. But Turkey's win - combined with Brazil's victory over Costa Rica - means Turkey have reached the last 16. Scenes of jubilation follow.

90 mins: Hakan Sukur - with the goal at his mercy - cannot quite reach a Hakan Sas cut back.

86 mins: Jiang superbly saves to deny Ilhan Mansiz.

84 mins: Umit Davala scores the third goal Turkey so desperately want. He brilliantly volleys home a Hakan Sas cross, sparking mass celebrations as Turkey realise - with Brazil leading Costa Rica 5-2 - that they are going to qualify for the second round.
Turkey 3-0 China

83 mins: Tugay comes off after an industrious match - and is replaced by Tayfur Havutcu.

81 mins: Hasan Sas is booked for a late challenge on Xu Yunlong.

79 mins: Emre Asik should score for Turkey, but having sneaked in at the far post to get on the end of a corner kick he misses the target from short range.

76 mins: Qu Bo drags a shot wide from the edge of the area. The crowd in Seoul are desperate for China to score before the end of their participation in the tournament.

72 mins: Qu Bo and Yu Genwei come on for Hao Haidong and Yang Chen.

71 mins: Hakan Sukur fails to convert an excellent opportunity. The striker pulls away from his marker and meets Umit Davala's cross but his header is too close to Jiang, who makes a good save.

69 mins: Yildiray Basturk is substituted for Ilhan Mansiz. The Bayer Leverkusen striker has had few opportunities to make his mark in front of goal.

60 mins: Li Weifeng is booked for obstruction.

58 mins: Shao Jiayi - introduced as substitute at the start of the second half - is given a straight red card for a lunge at Emre Belozoglu. Although the challenge is poor a red card does seem a little harsh on the Chinese player.

50 mins: Hasan Sas forces a save from Jiang with a powerfully struck shot.

46 mins: The second half begins with Turkey pushing forward for a third goal.

45 mins: Yang Pu goes down in the penalty area under a crude challenge from Fatih Akyel. But instead of awarding a penalty the referee books the Chinese player for diving. Seconds later he blows for half-time.
Half-time: Turkey 2-0 China

35 mins: Turkey goalkeeper Rustu Recber - injured in his team's previous game against Costa Rica - fell awkwardly earlier in the half and is unable to continue. He is replaced by Omer Catkic.

30 mins: Emre Belozoglu is booked and will miss the next match should Turkey reach the second round.

27 mins: China are unlucky not to score their first goal of the finals. Hao Haidong crosses from the left and Yang Chen's shot crashes against the woodwork with the goalkeeper comfortably beaten.

19 mins: Emre Asik is booked for a foul on Hao Haidong and will miss Turkey's next match if they qualify from their group.

11 mins: China's Hao Haidong cuts in from the left-hand side and shoots at goal but Rustu Recber saves. China seem a lot more cohesive moving forward than defending.

9 mins: Turkey score again. A deep cross from the left-hand side is met by Bulent Korkmaz, whose looping header evades Jiang in the China goal.
Turkey 2-0 China

5 mins: Hasan Sas scores for Turkey - his second goal of the tournament. The goal comes after Umit Davala takes a quick free kick - which he feed to Sas, who shrugs off the challenge of two China defenders before smashing home with his right foot.
Turkey 1-0 China

0730 BST: The game begins and within seconds Turkey's Hakan Sukur almost heads his team ahead but cannot quite get on the end of a deep cross from the right.
