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."

t's a bloody good goal, though. Sh!t, the kid's gonna be the worlds best before we know it, isn't he? He's got the touch of genius in him. Like Neymar, but with muscles and stuff. He's doing a Ronaldo as we watch. He's bulked up to be able to ride the tackles, but he's improved technically as well. His touch is sublime. Bugger.
