You can follow all the action from Switzerland against Chile on skysports.com, but it's goodbye from me.
For me, Fabio Coentrao was the man of the match, the younster was a constant menace down the left flank, even though he did not find the back of the net.
I have a slightly red face as I said a draw might not be a bad bet at half-time, thanks to Frazer Paterson for pointing that out: "What was that you said at half time about a draw being a good bet? :0)"
Well North Korea are now out of the World Cup and what a way to exit the competition. Only one down at half-time, they collapsed as Portugal ran riot towards the end.
It's all over! There was nearly an opportunity for another but Veloso couln't find a team-mate with his cross. The referee blows the final whistle and brings an unbelievable game to a close.
Korea launch a final forray forward, but the striker loses his footing in the area just as he was about to pull the trigger.
This is embarrassing now. Duda crossed from the left and Tiago gets his second of the game with a pinpoint header into the corner.
The Portugal captain breaks his goal drought but he got a bit lucky! He broke the offside trap and took it past the keeper, it hit the top of his head and he tapped it home!
Coentrao lifts it into the box for Duda, but Jun-Il Ri heads clear. Veloso then has a pop from range, but it goes well over.
Ronaldo brings it forward and Coentrao picks it up, this time he produces a poor pass though (for virtually the first time).
Joseph Ohens says: "Finally, one of Europe's high-profile representatives is getting it right, albeit against one of the tournament's minnows. But can Portugal replicate this performance against Brazil? We'll know in a matter of days."
Constant pressure once more from Portugal, are we going to see a sixth? Tiago aims for Duda but he missed his flick.
With virtually his first touch the striker smashes it home. Duda swept the ball in from the left, the defender made a hash of his clearance and Liedson fired home with power, 5-0.
Korea are still huffing and puffing as they enjoy a spell of possession. Jong miscues his shot and it nearly falls to Hong, but Eduardo gets down low to claim.
Will Ronaldo find the back of the net in the next 13 minutes? You can tell the Real Madrid man is desperate to score.
Mark Talbot writes: "I wonder what the North Korean press will read tomorrow. North Korea beat Portugal comfortably!"
Jong is still working up front for North Korea and he lashes a shot into the side netting with great power.
Ronaldo is again denied...this time by the keeper. He broke free of the defender and hit a low effort from the right, but Myong-Guk Ri got his body behind it.
It is constant pressure now from Carlos Queiroz's men and Ronaldo, desperate to get on the scoresheet, hits a great shot from range...off the bar!
Portugal break and Ronaldo brings it forward...he slides in Coentrao and the full-back tries an effort into the far corner, but it is narrowly wide.
Portugal are all over Korea now. They deserve a consolation from this game - at least they've given it a go.
Meireles goes so close! Ronaldo played the midfielder in with a lovely pass across goal, but the man who netted the opener could not hit the target this time.
Callum Harris says: "Portugal are looking the part at the moment but I would like the midfield to get a bit higher up the field behind the two strikers. Portugal have been playing well and I think if Portugal carry on like this they are in with a good chance but I also do have to put my hands up for Korea DPR they have had a hard group and I feel they have dealt with the pressure well."
Jong goes in for a header as Korea have a rare opportunity, but Carvalho gets in with a solid defensive clearance.
You've got to feel sorry for North Korea. They looked good in the first-half, but Portugal have been ruthless in front of goal.
Lovely goal from Portugal, this time Ronaldo was involved as he broke the offside trap down the left, to pick out Tiago who ran onto the ball and slid it into the corner from the edge of the area.
It definitely is all over now! Coentrao was the key man who flew down the left and his pinpoint cross was headed in by Almeida - 3-0!
Simao slides home to make it 2-0 to Portugal, after Almeida touched it off to Meireles who slipped Simao in, and he stuck the finish between the goalkeeper's legs. Nice goal.
Close from Almeida! Lovely move and again it's Coentrao who gets forward down the left to cross low, and the striker can't quite get enough purchase on his flick-on.
Jordan Street gets in touch to say: "Portugal will win this game 3-1, Ronaldo scoring a double. Then Portugal will open up and North korea will get one back! I still believe Ronaldo is the best player in the world his skill and goals beat Messi."
Another shot from Ronaldo that bounces just before the goalkeeper, who spills it, but claims it on the second attempt.
The game has started where it left off - brightly! A mistake from the Korea defender at left-back and Simao passes inside to Ronaldo who tries a first-time crack, well over.
Portugal's short corner is cleared and Korea break, Hong takes it past the defender but his effort is tame and rolls into Eduardo.
George Robinson from Leeds says: "Can't wait to see the tears in Ronaldo's eyes when he gets booked for diving in the 2nd half and has to miss the Brazil game. Brazil will take some beating in this world cup. I'm going for a patriotic (hopeful) England vs Holland final. I'm not reading too much into all this nonsense with the players having a go at Don Fabio. I think we should go 4-5-1 - with Joe Cole wide left, Lennon wide right and Barry holding for Lampard and Gerrard with Rooney up front on his own. This way we get the best out of everyone as Rooney has been awesome for Man United this season as a lone striker. P.S Leeds United for the title this year bring on the Premiership. Marching-On-Together."
Mark Taylor writes: "For me it is Portugal to run the game, plucky Korea just don't have the quality."
Andrew Colburn reckons: "I think Ronaldo has to come a bit more deep to have a bigger influence in the game, maybe play just behind the front 2 to get in the game more and a few more pot shots from the edge of the area because England fans alike all know what trouble it can cause when them kind of balls are hit with power, especially in the wet."
Kevin I am certainly not going to back England - even though it is only Slovenia there will be no jinxing from me!
Kevin Harkin from Scotland says: "Great updates on site. Are you worried about game on Wednesday now a German will ref it? Shame there are no Scottish refs, but like our football, the refs are rubbish as well. Good treble to bet: Mexico v Uruguay draw (dead cert), France to lose (or draw) to South Africa. I think a draw is the bet here - SA as a host nation cannot exit with only 1 point - And England to win."
Tommy Minter writes: "Portugal will win this game 3-0, with Ronaldo scoring a double. An impact is due from the 'best player in the world'."
Stephen Gilchrist reckons: "Sounds like a good first half from what I've read, I'm hoping for just the 1 more goal to seal Portugal's win as that's on my works score predictor."
SKYBET now have Portugal at 1/14, the draw is 8/1 and a Korea comeback is 40/1. Worth a punt for the draw in my opinion.
What will happen after half-time? Will Korea respond or will the floodgates open? Get in touch and share your views by emailing me on firstname.lastname@example.org.
So, Raul Meireles' strike separates the two sides at the break. It was a nice finish from a lovely pass from Tiago.
The half-time whistle goes. Portugal lead 1-0 at the break and Korea can regroup after a good start.
The referee penalises Ronaldo for dissent - he needs to be careful as another booking will see him miss the Brazil game.
Another lovely move from Portugal as they finish the half with a flourish. Simao beats his man and hits an effort across goal...it is deflected and evades the onrushing attackers.
Coentrao is the danger man down the left and he puts in an excellent low ball...Almeida tries a flick through his legs but it doesn't find Simao.
Mendes chips a ball over the top for Meireles...who is making some excellent runs. This time though he can't control it.
Nice interplay from Portugal and Ronaldo has a crack just outside the area on the left....but he drags it wide.
Meireles swings a ball into the backpost but Korea manage to clear. Portugal are pressing in the closing stages of the half.
The rain seems to have eased off in Cape Town but the grass is soaked. Coentrao comes down the left and wins the throw in an advanced position.
Carlos Queiroz is not happy after a decision goes against Portugal on the touchline. The ball is pumped upfield and Korea win another free-kick as Mendes dives in and misses the ball - yellow card.
Meireles goes close! The midfielder almost found the net for a second time after the ball hit Ahn in the penalty area and fell to the Portugal man, but the effort was dragged just wide.
Portugal look a bit more composed having netted that opener. They had been really edgy before Meireles broke the deadlock.
How will North Korea respond to that blow? They have been bright so far, but will the goal break their morale?
Lovely run from the Porto man as he burst forward from midfield, Tiago slid him in and he fired it low into the net, great finish!
John Edwards says: "I'm hoping that Potugal are beaten to prove a point that money doesn't make good players (Ronaldo etc) and teamwork is proven to be the essence of the World Cup as it should be!"
Simao's corner is poor and Korea manage to clear. Coentrao then advances down the left and fires it across goal...Simao nearly gets a first-time shot away but the defender slides in at the last.
Both sides are having shots from way out. The rain is lashing down and the keepers will have to be on their toes as Meireles has an effort that is deflected wide.
Excellent defending from Cha Jong-Hyok to nick the ball away from Almeida who was waiting to head in at the back post.
Portugal corner but Meireles can't beat the first man. That's poor and he does the same with the second effort.
Ahn Yong-Hak has a pop! It fizzes off the surface and goes past the post, but not by too much. One of these shots from range is going to slide in today I reckon.
Miguel whips a low ball in from the right but Ri Jun-Il manages to cut the danger out at the front post.
Great strike from Hong! He advanced into the area on the right and Eduardo parried the shot...it fell to Pak but he couldn't keep his header down.
Ronaldo does well to get to the by-line on the left and fire it across goal, but the Korea defender hacks it clear.
Jong is played in with a lovely ball through the heart of the defence, but it runs away from him off the wet surface. Unlucky.
Well so far it has been a bright start from both teams. Carvalho was so close to breaking the deadlock, but North Korea are attacking dangerously too.
A great effort from Cha Jong-Hyok! The full-back smacked a shot from long range that drifted narrowly wide!
Miguel tries to advance down the right but he can't get the ball under control. How will he do on the flank today?
Hugo Almeida is played in but he is just offside. Very close there as the Korean's held a high line.
Carvalho hits the post with a header! So unlucky! The goalkeeper was nowhere to be seen as the deep cross drifted over him, but Carvalho's effort came back off the woodwork.
Korea are already looking more adventurous than against Brazil, and the game has been very open so far.
Jong picks up the ball on the left but Carvalho gets a good foot in. Portugal break with pace and a cross is put in...it falls to Carvalho who had charged upfield, but he slices his shot well wide.
Ronaldo surges forward and hits a shot at goal with his left - it takes a deflection and nearly swerves away from the keeper, but Myong-Guk Ri holds onto it.
Fabio Coentrao advances down the left but Ronaldo can't keep the ball from going out for a Korea goal-kick.
Liam Ferguson says: "I think Portugal need to be cautious and I think Ronaldo will need to produce something special for Portugal, if Ronaldo plays to his best then Portugal I think will cruise this match, for me Nam-Chol Pak will be the player to watch out for regarding Korea."
The weather isn't great in Cape Town today, it's wet and gloomy. Will this have a bearing on the game?
Ricardo Da Corte has got in touch to say: "Portugal need to hammer Korea but do they have the ability to convert their normally attractive football into goals, I doubt it since even Fabiano and Brazil couldn't do too much against them."
Let's cast our minds back 44 years to the 1966 World Cup in England. Favourites Portugal played North Korea in the quarter-finals and took a remarkable 3-0 lead at Goodison Park. But a stunning fightback from Portugal saw Eusebio net four goals and the game ended 5-3.
Fancy a bet on the first game of the day? SKYBET have got Portugal at 1/3 for the win, the draw is at 7/2, while a Korea victory is 10/1.
But don't underestimate the North Koreans. They defended admirably against Brazil and will be difficult to break down.
Will Ronaldo shine today in Cape Town? He is due a goal for Portugal and has an excellent opportunity to break his international drought.
Cristiano Ronaldo, seeking his first international goal for 16 months, spearheads Portugal's attack in a game they need to win by as many goals as possible. Ronaldo, who was harshly shown a yellow card in the opening game, will miss that tie if he is booked today.
Carlos Queiroz has made four alterations for the clash, opting to start with Tiago and Simao Sabrosa in place of the injured Deco and Danny in midfield. Deco is absent with a hip problem and makes way for Tiago, as he did during the second half of the opener against Ivory Coast when Simao came on for Danny. Up front Hugo Almeida replaces Liedson while Miguel comes in for Paulo Ferreira at full-back.
While North Korea have stuck with the same side that lost to Brazil 2-1, Portugal have made wholesale changes.
Get in touch before and during the day's first game by emailing me on email@example.com and I will share the best views.
Portugal need a win in this one as they take on Brazil in their final match, and after their excellent performance against the Ivory Coast last night, Carlos Queiroz's men will want a points cushion to keep the pressure off.
