Kick-off: 4.00pm local (8.00pm BST) Man of the Match: Islam Slimani (Algeria) Assistant referees: Eduardo Díaz (Colombia) Christian Lescano (Ecuador) Fourth official: Alireza Faghani (Iran) Fifth official: Hassan Kamranifar (Iran) The two teams had met in two previous matches, both in friendlies both in 1985. Algeria, which needed at least a point to stay alive in the competition, scored three goals in the first half to take a comfortable lead. First, Islam Slimani sped past two South Korean defenders to receive Carl Medjani's long pass and slot home with his left foot past the advancing goalkeeper. Two minutes later, Rafik Halliche headed in Abdelmoumene Djabou's corner from the left. Djabou scored himself later after he received a pass from Slimani, shooting low with his left foot from twelve yards out. Early in the second half, Son Heung-min controlled a long pass from Ki Sung-yueng to shoot with his left foot between the goalkeeper's legs and reduce the deficit, but Yacine Brahimi restored Algeria's three-goal lead after a one-two with Sofiane Feghouli to side foot home from inside the penalty area with his right foot. Koo Ja-cheol scored South Korea's second goal after a pass from Lee Keun-ho from the left, but Algeria held on for its third ever World Cup victory, but its first since 24 June 1982. Algeria became the first African team to score four goals in a World Cup match. Algeria scored more goals in this match than in their preceding seven World Cup finals games.
