World Cup: Son Heung-min wants to 'script another miracle' when South Korea face Brazil

South Korea captain Son Heung-min is determined to build on the surprise World Cup win over Portugal by pulling off another upset against Brazil.

The Koreans looked set for the exit at the group stage of the World Cup as they were drawing 1-1 with Portugal in their final Group H fixture, but an injury time winner from Hwang Hee-chan secured a last-16 spot for the Asian country.

Tottenham star Son was delighted with the win but wants to see his team-mates continue to push when they face Brazil in the knockout stage on Monday.

"This is great but our tournament is not over," Son told Korean media in Doha.

"We've always talked about reaching the round of 16 as our objective but we should now try to go beyond that.

"I hope we can script another miracle."

Brazil have already suffered defeat at the 2022 World Cup, as Cameroon shocked them 1-0 in Group G on Friday.
