64 mins: Cha-Doo-Ri replaces goalscorer Lee Eul-Yong as Guus Hiddink tries to add a bit of spark to a game that has lost some of its earlier edge.

63 mins: Rustu Recber makes another brave save to thwart a Korean attack. Despite being hampered by a thigh injury, Rustu commands his area with great authority.
