9:50pm

Penalty appeal for Korea as Sun goes tumbling under a push from Medjani. Looked to have a case on the replay.

Ji drills a shot wide for Korea. Kim has won everything in the air since he came on.

Ghilas nearly makes it five - heading just over the top.

9:20pm

9:20pm

Brahimi finishes a great move. Plays a one-two with Slimani and finshes well. Koreans floored.

9:17pm

What a save from Rais - Ki unleashed a magnificent effort from the edge of the area.

9:14pm

Mandi clears a quick free kick off the line - TV cameras didn't catch it.

9:11pm

Lee-Yong booked

9:10pm

Chungy plays a clever ball for Koo, who heads wide. Best touch he's made this game.

9:09pm

Halliche heads towards goal again from a corner but sraight at the keeper.

9:07pm

Son Heun Min gets a couple of lucky bounces but turns well on a long ball to slot past the keeper. Game on perhaps??

9:02pm

Second half underway

8:47pm

8:38pm

Bad to worse for Korea. Long ball brought down by Slimani and laid off to Djoubou who tucks it into the bottom corner.

8:37pm

GOAL Algeria

8:35pm

Chungy has been a spectator for the opening 35 minutes. Hasn't really been given a sniff.

8:30pm

Algeria have scored more than once in a World Cup game for the first time since 1982 (3-1 v Chile). 

8:29pm

8:29pm

Halliche heads home with authority from the corner - Korean keeper absolutely nowhere near it. One minute 55 seconds between the two goals.

8:28pm

It's two for Algeria!

8:27pm

Brahimi nearly makes it two - his cross-shot deflected just wide by Kim.

8:27pm

Slimani played in over the top, shows great strength to hold off the Korean defenders and then finish past Jung.

8:26pm

GOAL Algeria!

8:22pm

8:21pm

8:20pm

Slimani wastes another glorious chance. Mandi's cross from the right was perfect but the striker didn't get a good connection.

8:18pm

Algerians very physical early on. Can see the referee starting to brandish some yellow cards soon.

8:14pm

Commentator Sam Matterface: "Chung-Yong Lee of Bolton Wanderers, has been linked with a move to Hull City in recent weeks."

8:11pm

Ah, he has. Just been fouled after a little darting run.

8:11pm

Not sure Chungy has touched the ball yet...

8:09pm

Slimani heads into the side netting from a corner. Yeung completely lost his marker. Korea look in serious trouble.

8:04pm

Brahimi puts a shot over the bar. Frantic scramble in the Korean box - Kim's challenge on Feghouli also looked like a penalty.

8:02pm

Good start from the Algerians. Bentaleb already seen a lot of the ball.

8:01pm

Feghouli goes mighty close after just 90 seconds. Turns and hits a shot just over the bar.

8:01pm

Sam Matterface and Clarke Carlisle on commentary duty. Be glad you are just reading the text...

8:00pm

7:59pm

An unchanged side for Korea - Chung-Yong likely to start on the right side of attack.

7:31pm

Good evening - join me from 8pm as Chung-Yong Lee makes his sixth World Cup appearance.
