South Korea manager Hong Myung-Bo apologises for his side's World Cup Group H defeat against Algeria.

South Korea manager Hong Myung-Bo has apologised for his team's World Cup Group H defeat against Algeria.

The Asian side were beaten 4-2 in Porto Alegre and now need to beat Belgium in their final group match to stand any chance of reaching the last 16.

"In the stadium, there were a lot of Korean fans and I would like to apologise to them," BBC Sport quotes him as saying.

"We have one game left and I would just like to promise that we will do our best for the next match."

South Korea are playing in their ninth World Cup and finished fourth in 2002 when they co-hosted the tournament with Japan.
