Our winger plays 90 minutes in final World Cup group game against Belgium

Lee Chung-Yong and Korea were eliminated from the FIFA World Cup on Thursday evening after a 1-0 defeat against Belgium in Sao Paulo.

Heading into the game Korea needed a win and for another result to go their way to progress from Group H.

However, despite Belgium playing much of the game with ten men following Steven Defour’s dismissal on the stroke of half time, they would eventually prevail.

Jan Vertonghen netted the decisive goal on 77 minutes.

Lee played the full game for Korea, who ended the campaign bottom of Group H on one point.
