Team News
South Korea
South Korea have not been able to use Hwang Hee-chan in the tournament thus far due to a hamstring problem, and the forward remains a major doubt for Friday's contest.

Son Heung-min will again be a certain starter for Bento's team in this match, with the 30-year-old set to win his 107th cap for the national side, while Napoli's Kim Min-jae will line up in the middle of the defence.

Cho Gue-sung scored twice against Ghana last time out and will again lead the line for South Korea, while Kwon Chang-hoon should retain his spot in a wide position.

There should also be a spot in the middle of the park for Hwang In-beom.
South Korea possible starting lineup:
Seung-gyu; Moon-hwan, Min-jae, Young-gwon, Jin-su; Woo-young, In-beom; Chang-hoon, Woo-yeong, Heung-min; Gue-sung

As for Portugal, Nuno Mendes had to be substituted in the latter stages of the first half against Uruguay last time out, and the defender has been ruled out of the rest of the tournament.

Danilo is also out with fractured ribs, while Otavio is a doubt with the injury that forced him to sit out the game against Uruguay last time out.

Raphael Guerreiro should come back in for Mendes at left-back, but Cristiano Ronaldo has been rated as 50/50 for the match after he missed Wednesday's training session.

Santos has confirmed that he will make changes for this match, with Diogo Dalot, Joao Palhinha and Goncalo Ramos all potentially coming into the starting side.
Portugal possible starting lineup:
Costa; Dalot, Pepe, Dias, Guerreiro; Bernardo, Neves, Palhinha; Fernandes; Ronaldo, Ramos
Prediction: South Korea 1-2 Portugal
