West News Wire: South Korea advanced to the Round of 16 of the World Cup with a 2-1 victory over Portugal at Qatar’s Education City stadium thanks to a goal by Hwang Hee-chan in the 90th minute.

Son Heung-min, the team’s captain, ran the full length of the field while in possession to assist Hwang before he scored.

After five minutes, Portugal took the lead thanks to Ricardo Horta.
