Park Ji-Sung is not looking beyond Saturday's game with Uruguay as Korea Republic bid to extend their historic run at the FIFA World Cup™.

The Taeguk Warriors cemented their place in the last 16 of a FIFA World Cup for the first time ever on foreign soil after a win and a draw sealed second in Group B.

Coach Huh Jung-Moo's target before the tournament was to reach the knock-out stage and with that achieved South Korea can now reassess their goals in South Africa.

However, Manchester United midfielder Park is focused solely on the upcoming game against Uruguay, who the East Asians have not beaten in four previous attempts.

"We watched a few of Uruguay's games, they have quality and they are strong and their performances were great in the group stages. We have to prepare well for that game," said Park in The Daily Yomiuri.

"We're just thinking about the next game, we don't want to think about the game after that. Our goal was the last 16, so now we just focus on every single game coming up and treat it as the final."
