Saturday 26 June

Park now has a couple of weeks to digest this defeat with his team-mates and manager, dust himself down and get ready for United's pre-season. In his press conferences in South Africa he has never set his sights too high for this World Cup, but nevertheless I'm sure he'll be disappointed not to have gone further, especially after Korea were beaten by a late goal and even more so because it could well be his last World Cup. That's it from my blog – I hope you've enjoyed it. Don't forget you can still keep in touch with United's remaining World Cup representatives (for one more day at least!) by following our England and Mexico blogs.

16:50 FT: Uruguay 2-1 South Korea. Korea's run is over and it's Uruguay who advance to a last-eight meeting with the USA or Ghana. To be fair, Suarez's second was a fitting winner of any game, but I feel for Park, who was all over the pitch again and didn't deserve to be on the losing side.

Dong-gook Lee's just spurned a glorious chance to equalise, scuffing a poor shot straight at the keeper when clean through. Boro fans won't be surprised.

16:38 Uruguay 2-1 South Korea. Maybe I spoke too soon. After Korea failed to clear a corner, Suarez made space for himself on the left-hand side of the box and curled a delicious shot in off the far post.

16:29 Chung-yong's just gone very close again but his shot was saved. Korea can win this now!

16:27 Uruguay 1-1 South Korea. Just as it was looking like the game was drifting away, up pops Chung-yong Lee to head home his second of the tournament, after Uruguay only half-cleared a Sung-yueng Ki free-kick. Uruguay have finally conceded a goal and it's game on!

16:17 Off goes Jae-sung Kim and on comes
