Brazil lost their final group game 1-0 to Cameroon but coach Tite will be satisfied to see his side through to the last 16, where they will now face South Korea.

They showed what the are capable of with two solid victories over Serbia and Switzerland but the manager will be keen to see his side return to top gear after losing to Cameroon 1-0 to close the group stages.

Any failure to do just that could see them come unstuck against a well-drilled and motivated South Korea side, who beat Portugal in their final group match to secure qualification.

Led by their talisman Son Heung-min, the Koreans will lack a overall class edge against Brazil but will certainly match them for commitment and intensity.

When is the match?

The match is on Monday December 5.

What time is kick-off?

The match will kick off at Stadium 974 at 7pm (GMT), 10pm local time.

What TV channel is it on?

The match will be shown on either BBC or ITV. Telegraph Sport will also be running a live blog on the game - you can bookmark this page now and return on Monday to follow along with our coverage.

How have Brazil fared so far?

Five-time world champions Brazil started their campaign with a 2-0 win over Serbia. Tottenham Hotspur forward Richarlison, who was on crutches just three weeks before the squad was announced, was named player of the match after scoring both goals.

His spectacular bicycle-kick sealed victory for his side, with his goal an early contender for the strike of the tournament.

Tito's side continued their winning ways in their second against Switzerland in a 1-0 victory followed by a 1-0 loss to Cameroon in their final group game.

How have South Korean got on?

South Korea began their tournament with a hard-fought 0-0 draw against Uruguay, a game they very well could have won had they taken their chances.

That was followed by a narrow 3-2 loss to Ghana, in what was certainly one of bets matches of the entire group stages.

Knowing they had to win to have any chance of securing qualification heading into the last group game, South Korea left in late against Portugal, with a 90th minute Hwang Hee-chan winner eventually sending them through.

Brazil vs South Korea results history?

Brazil and Korea have faced each other three times in total, with the five-time world champions winning each of those encounters.

The most recent clash came in June of this year, where Brazil smashed South Korea 5-1 in a friendly.

What is Brazil's World Cup record?

Brazil are the most successful team in the tournament's history. They've won the World Cup a record five times (1958, 1962, 1970, 1994, 2002) and have played in all 21 editions of the tournament so far.

In Russia 2018, Brazil were tournament favourites but crashed out at the quarter-final stage following a 2-1 defeat to Belgium.

What is South Korea's World Cup record?

South Korea made their World Cup debut in 1954 and have competed in the most editions of any Asian country.

They have taken part in nine consecutive showpieces, finishing in the group stage every time except for in 2010 when they made the Round of 16 and in 2002 when they finished fourth place, their best result.
