Is South Korea vs Portugal on TV? Kick-off time, channel and where to watch
South Korea are aiming to defeat Portugal and secure a spot in the last 16 at the Qatar World Cup, though they’ll need a hand along the way.
Portugal’s narrow victory over Ghana and following win against Uruguay has guaranteed them a place in the knockout phases of the world championship, but another place in Group H is still up for grabs.
South Korea, having drawn 0-0 with Uruguay and come up agonisingly short in a 3-2 loss to Ghana, can still progress here, but it won’t be straightforward.
To advance, Son Heung-min and his teammates must beat Portugal by a two-goal margin and hope Ghana draw with Uruguay.
Here’s all you need to know.
