Kick-Off: 20:00 Local (12:00 BST) Assistant referees: Ali Al Traifi (Saudi Arabia) Héctor Vergara (Canada) Fourth official: Felipe Ramos (Mexico) Man of the Match: Hakan Şükür (Turkey) Turkey won an exciting play-off match to clinch third place at their first World Cup since 1954. Hakan Sukur - who has endured a miserable tournament - scored the fastest ever goal in a World Cup match to set the tone for an end-to-end encounter. South Korea, who have contributed so much to the success of the World Cup, again attacked with verve and determination. And Lee Eul-Yong scored a spectacular free-kick to pull level early in the game. Coach Guus Hiddink - taking charge of South Korea for the last time - tinkered with his defensive personnel. The decision proved costly, with his team's previously excellent defence playing like virtual strangers throughout the opening half.
