Jan Vertonghen's goal 12 minutes from time was enough to give Belgium the win and end South Korea's hopes of progression.

Myung-bo was full of praise for the effort of his players, as he took responsibility for their campaign.

"My players gave everything they had. They made some mistakes, but also produced a lot of good things," he said. 

"We played pretty well overall, creating chances on the counter-attack.

"The nature of the match changed after Belgium had a man sent off. We probably held onto the ball for too long in midfield. I take responsibility for the result."

On his own future he added: "I’ve done my best – my World Cup objective was to not have any regrets at the end. I’m going to take a little bit more time before deciding on my future."

he solution is to not feel sorry for any of Jabba, Gold or Sullivan. They're all deeply unpleasant and all deserve each other. If only West Ham would sign Barton and Suarez then no one would ever need to despise any other club.

lassic management. Build them up and then knock them back. Raise expectations and then dampen them. Create a dynamic where by you demand the most from your team, but where the team are given room to manoeuvre unexpected or unwanted results. Classy work by Van Gaal, he really reminds me a lot of me. A smart cookie, make no doubt.
