The last eight clash will take place on Saturday, August 13, kick-off 11pm UK time.

Sonny was once again in the thick of the action as his nation won their group and knocked the defending champions out of the competition last night, with Kwon Chang-Hoon grabbing the decisive goal in the 77th minute.

Germany, who drew 3-3 with South Korea on Sunday, a game in which Sonny netted for the second time in the tournament, also qualified from Group C as runners-up.
